Dear My Best Buy® Member,

Thank you for being a part of My Best Buy! We would like to tell you about some important changes coming to My Best Buy on August 28, 2016 (view updated terms & conditions).

Our mission is to make it easier for you to enjoy the latest technology-the technology you love and use every day.

We've listened to what matters most to members, and are excited to tell you about a core benefit available to you. We are now making it easier for you to get the latest technology quickly with Free 2-Day Shipping (with no annual fee) on thousands of items when you shop at BestBuy.com® or by using our mobile app. You can take advantage of Free In-Store Pickup when you need your technology even faster.

Also, we now have a number of additional benefits that are available to you. For example, when you enroll in My Best Buy Mobile Rewards we offer you a $25 My Best Buy reward certificate every time you purchase and activate a new smartphone after your initial phone purchase. Plus, we'll help you find the mobile plan to best fit your needs with a Free In-store Plan Comparison. People who have had their plan analyzed at Best Buy® and have changed their plan have saved an average of $40 per month*.

Of course, you will continue to enjoy other great benefits including Member-Only Access to special offers and pre-sale exclusives, like our Black Friday Early Access event.

My Best Buy Credit Cardmembers will continue to get 5% back* in rewards on Best Buy purchases. Members without a My Best Buy Credit Card will now get 1% back in rewards at Best Buy. Don't have a My Best Buy Credit Card? Learn more about how to apply.

Wait, so you're saying even an Elite Plus member without a Best Buy Credit Card will only receive 1% back in rewards now? I don't have a BB Credit Card. Is this real?

I think the keyword/deal here is the 2-day shipping (vs. standard shipping).

People will be confused by your post, because the mods just merged all of the threads one. This is the main thread now

I believe the My Best Buy Mobile Rewards (receive a $25 My Best Buy reward certificate every time you purchase and activate a new smartphone after your initial phone purchase) has been in place for about a year. So the only new benefit is the free 2 day shipping for non-Elite Best Buy members ... in exchange for getting less points per purchase.
