Best Buy has traditionally started their online Black Friday sale in the early morning on Thanksgiving Day. They usually take quite a long time to completely update all prices, so prepare for a long night of refreshing.

 

Best Buy offers free shipping on most orders of $35 or more, or you can choose in-store pickup for selected items.

I wouldn't say a majority is online. There's a lot of the Samsung products which always are available a few days beforehand and some other random stuff but there's still a few hundred items that aren't online.

This was posted on best buys forum:


If you have Eltie or Elite Plus status and your accounts (BestBuy.com and My Best Buy) are linked, then you should be able to view the Early Access deals sometime after 12 AM. It might not be right at 12 AM, but within an hour or so afterwards.

He just updated and says central.

Here's the update he posted:

You should be able to view the Early Access deals around 12 AM central and then the deals should start to go live as the morning progresses.

Lol.  aka "The sale should go live 'sometime'; likely just after you finally give up and fall asleep"

Lol, I thought the same thing. Last year it was about 2:00 am eastern. It was a much better experience, because when they started it at 12:00pm the site was overran at once and would keep crashing. Last year they did it same way as this year and was a way better experience....after the sale finally started that is.

Does anyone know if the deals are worth staying up for-this is my first early access and they sent me a preview with only a few items...

Really need to find some good prices on some xbox 360 games and either skull candy headphones or beats, hoping this might be in the early access sale

It says come back tomorrow to see these featured deals and more. I have had early access for the last 3 years and it has always been everything that is online for the regular online Black Friday event. I don't see that changing this year(nothing's guaranteed, though), so I will be waiting up.

Items are starting to show up as "Coming Soon" that were "Add to Cart" earlier.  These items are listed for the Black Friday sale.  So that should be a good base as to what will be available to the Elite Members.

The iPad Air 2 and the Beats have not changed to coming soon. I hope that's not a sign those will not be included.

Don't give up hope, yet.  But don't hold your breath.  If the sale goes live and those haven't at least changed to "coming soon"..... that might not be a good sign.

Yes, but they were $90.00.
All the colors except the ones that will be on sale are coming soon now on the beats.

I just noticed two things that scare me:

I read this as part of the benefits for Elite/Elite Plus members (which I have been for several years): 'Plus, advanced online access to our Black Friday deals'

 

When looking at Best Buy's website it says: BB%2Belite.jpg

This mentions 'SELECT Black Friday Deals before anyone else'. If that is the case....I won't be trying as hard to reach Elite status next year.

I keep refreshing the Onkyo receiver, and its staying at the $449 bf price. But it still says coming soon.

As far as x-men and what not. Those have been 9.99 for awhile now, nothing to do with tonights elite access.

More scary stuff:

 

I never got an email about Elite early access sale, but found a 'ballon' next  to the prices when I added my movies:

 

Early Access Event: November 20-23

My Best Buy members get early access to select sales. My Best Buy Elite and Elite Plus members can shop our select Black Friday deals before anyone else.

Prices for this sale are valid through Sunday, November 23.

 

I never saw this!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone else? I hope it's a misprint!

Indiana Jones is $3.99, but not Planet of the Apes or Lego movie. Prices change whenever.
