Does anyone know what items they are going to offer up early for Premiere Silver members? I can't find it anywhere on their site! I don't remember it being this hard last year.

Partial quote from BestBuy rep:

As a Premier Silver member, you will get first access to select items that are featured in our Black Friday ad, on Monday, 11/21 from Noon to Midnight ET, which will be available online and via the phone. At this time, we are not aware of when any information regarding details of the deals will be provided; however, I would encourage you to keep an eye on myrewardzone.com and your email for any information that may be provided.

Awesome... maybe it will save me some time Friday IF they have the good items in the sale, which is usually doubtful. I am a Silver Premier member and this would be a nice bonus if they offer some of the better doorbusters.

It is also nice to get rid of the mad dash items beforehand by getting them online.

if you have to ask then you probably are not. They send you a different keychain card and wallet card that is silver, not blue. You also got different mail offers.

I picked up the Sony Vaio laptop last year as an Xmas gift for my mom. It was a great deal, and she still loves it. I left work and went to Starbucks at noon, logged in, grabbed the deal and was out by 12:10! I still don't see the listing online of what will be available this year.

It is sad that the long love-affair with the $300 Sony Vaio discount has come to an end.......:(

That's correct. Nobody cares for Sony anymore. Samsung is now the "hottest" brand today.

Just got my email from Best Buy. I see several things that I can get tomorrow. A co-worker wants the Dynex 24 inch TV for her camper and it's available tomorrow so I'll snag that for her. You can't add the items to your car though. It says "coming soon" so I'll have to have a list of what I want and zip through adding them to the cart as the sale begins.

I got the email as well. If you are a Silver member and didn't get the email, you can still see the deals. Just log into Reward zone at BB's website and it will link you to what they are making available.

Now I can barely move from page to page. The last time I was able to pull up the Lenovo laptop it said "sold out online" on the product page. :mad:

Best Buy site must be slammed. This is way worse than last year. I can't get anything to load right now. So far I've got the Asus laptop and the Apple TV in my cart.

Funny. When I told my wife I was going to try to get something this morning her exact words were "oh you know the site will lock up and you will get nothing. It happens every time". Ridiculous. My silver status is up in February. Good.
