I called best buy today and the woman told me that even the door busters would be available on Monday.. This didn't sound right to me so I asked again a few different ways to verify that indeed they would be available and she confirmed.. It really sounded like she didn't know what she was telling me though. I'm going on Monday just in case.

pheenix11 11-14-2012 09:30 PM

I tried this crap last year, what a joke. Not all the door busters are available and even the ones they did have were near impossible to get on that POS they call a website. Then to top it off they took 3 weeks to ship. I guess I should consider myself lucky considering some people were cancelled entirely when they couldn't fulfill orders. Best Buy not only screwed the pooch last year they didn't even buy it dinner.

Dmnchild 11-14-2012 09:54 PM

Confirmed, bout time they posted it! They had me worried :P

adg565 11-15-2012 11:13 AM

hate to say it but it is crap. I called and spoke to 2 different premier silver people. the first told the sale is THURSDAY. Then refused to transfer me to a supervisor so I could let them know their reps dont even have the right info. The second refused to transfer me without getting all the info AGAIN. I hung up both times. Way to fail again this year best buy. You could not do a worse job with this. If you want to know how to do an early online only sale look at what lowes does. They cue up site visitors and let them online periodically so the site does not crash.

you have made unforgivable errors in my opinion
1. you never made up for last years failure
2. you are doing it all over again this year

you need to fire whoever 'plans' this stuff cause they don't know what they are doing.

goodbye

That's what Best Buy ad says - they will give you a $60 gift card with a purchase of certain iPads. Can be easily converted into Amazon $$$.

have you thought of buying now(today is the last day) as BB has 3x pts for silver member, and go back for price adjustment? i am not sure if i would still retain the 3x pts after BB Pm on BF

anyone know? thx

That would be an interesting thought! However, when I log into my account, I can't add an iPad to cart, the Add button is greyed out. I assume it was done to prevent the scenario you are talking about. If I purchase iPad in store, I would lose my 10% with Discover and Shopdiscover.

hmm, interesting point. i just looked at my BB card from the mail, the 3x pts deal has to be done at the retail store. i guess i can wait for BF as the Discover card has 10% like you said, which would be about the same as 3x pts. anyone know what is the dollar equivalent for $500 purchase in terms of 3x pts? thx

My math is known to be slightly off but here's what I think: $10 = 500 points. So, for your $500 purchase you will get 1500 points which you can convert into a $30 certificate. Honestly, you will benefit more from 10% with Discover.

lol, i just did the same math. plus i do not want to deal with asking BB to PM

btw, one can still some reward cert and the rest on Discover, and still get 10% for the portion charged to the discover card right?

Not many good deals for early silver members... I see some amazing TV deals, but not in the market for a tv this year. Only good thing I see is Assassins Creed Revelations for $8 and thats it...

Now skylanders figures show in store only. I guess I will be taking the ad to walmart.

Does anyone think they will have a lot in store at BB on Thursday?

DealsAllTheWay 11-18-2012 09:30 PM

by far the hottest deal for Monday at Best Buy:


Only $399.99
Toshiba 50" class LED 1080p HDTV.

I was thinking the same thing. I was looking to buy a big tv but they only have one I can see that is equipped with internet. this is 2012 what is up with that? and most of them are 120hz. looks to me like they are cleaning out their warehouse. I am going to buy a few small things but that is all. they don't even have a 32gb tablet. I was ready to take the plunge on one of those also. I don't think a 60" 240hz smart tv and a 32gb tablet is too much to ask for in 2012. I will wait for a sale or maybe next black friday.

adg565 11-18-2012 09:46 PM

DealsAllTheWay 11-18-2012 09:55 PM

how can this TV be so cheap?


Only $399.99
Toshiba 50" class LED 1080p HDTV.

I really want a great deal on a 40 inch TV but can't find one..sucks

Will the shop discover link work? For that extra 5% you need to go through discovers site, but for the sale then you need to follow the email link. So wont one cancel out the other?

BTW. does anyone know if theyll be doing in-store pickup for any of this? And if not, how is Best Buy shipping nowadays? (I know theres some bitter people citing problems from years ago but BB actually has improved a lot in some areas but I'm not sure if Shipping is one of them)

It may be because it is only 60hz. 120hz has been the standard for a couple years and I was looking for a 240hz.

AnimeJunkie 11-19-2012 08:13 AM

yup got hte blizzard... great

jreuschl 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

Did they come up with the blizzard slogan to be cute this year!?

DizzyV6P 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

Such BS. All stuff was regular price in my cart...then it all died.

eryeal 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

So, while we're all stuck here, what did everyone try to get?

jwalk40 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

Don't know why I'm surprised...

octick 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

Lost everything in cart.

harbey 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

yeah in the middle of me checking out. got the stupid blizzard page after a bunch of error pages

Stickboy46 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

I really only wanted AC3 and NFS:MW. Not going to be heartbroken if I don't get it.

rgf207 11-19-2012 08:14 AM

Bravo Best Buy. You fail yet again.

klinkman 11-19-2012 08:15 AM

In and done.
Grabbed the 55" pany 3D setup for the father in law.
Thanks OP for the reminder on the silver deals opening today!

adg565 11-19-2012 08:15 AM

WHAT A JOKE. It won't let me check out. I called the Premier Silver number, it took all my information, then said they were closed due to inclement weather. GOODBYE BEST BUY. Hey that rhymes! And I mean it this time. I made another rhyme!. Service so bad it should be a crime! Another one. Thanks for wasting my time!. I am going to file a complaint with the Minnesota BBB feel free to join me (that one was unintentional.)

AnimeJunkie 11-19-2012 08:15 AM

phone lines are also dead, keep getting the busy tone

manfromnowhere 11-19-2012 08:15 AM

Seriously? This happens every year. Guess I lost my cart. Thanks BB.

DizzyV6P 11-19-2012 08:16 AM

going to Amazon now....they priced matched some of the stuff..hahaha...some are about $5 more on amazon..but that saves me the aggravation

booji 11-19-2012 08:16 AM

lost everything in my cart as well...total dumb%$#@

eryeal 11-19-2012 08:16 AM

Guess they shutdown the website so that people calling could place their orders.

What exactly will your BBB complaint entail? I'm curious.

Transforpang 11-19-2012 08:16 AM

So everyone will lose their items in the cart already
Crappy deal

Texfinn 11-19-2012 08:16 AM

Wow...

juliel 11-19-2012 08:17 AM

Don't worry about calling. They just tell you since the system is down they can't help you either.

froggydukes 11-19-2012 08:17 AM

another fail like last year, the site is completely down

harbey 11-19-2012 08:17 AM

guess there are lots of silver members. heh

MrDaytona 11-19-2012 08:18 AM

Is there a link to go where you can offer Amazon to price match a competitor's price?

8mpg 11-19-2012 08:18 AM

all I wanted was that damn cheap 27" monitor

ncasolo 11-19-2012 08:18 AM

Anyone with any thoughts on the picture quality on that 55" Panasonic 3D TV? I can't seem to find any "professional" reviews.

typesdragon 11-19-2012 08:18 AM

dumb BB, wasted my time.

juliel 11-19-2012 08:18 AM

Clearly they had a cute graphic prepared for the crash, so, no, you DID know there would be a blizzard. Arseholes.

What was the item # on that tv? I can't checkout

adg565 11-19-2012 08:19 AM

I saved screen shots from most of the pages which I will include with my bbb complaint. This happened last year.

8mpg 11-19-2012 08:19 AM

are there really that many silver members?

froggydukes 11-19-2012 08:19 AM

i should have checked out every two minutes like is ay i wil levery year and of course i didnt, how does best buy not expect this and now what, will anybody be able to order anything,

adg565 11-19-2012 08:20 AM

There is NO reason they should not have been prepared for it this year.

tgenius 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

I laugh that the site went down.. I feel for anyone trying to buy come Thursday Night/Friday...

juliel 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

So, dare I ask, how many hours did it take for them to sort it out last year? I can't sit here refreshing all day.

ceril 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

had both a laptop and hd in my cart, GF said I dont know if I want this one or the other. By the time she made up her mind I cant checkout. LOL oh well

froggydukes 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

even tried on my phone but they shut down EVERYTHING! lol

tamagotchx 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

still down

onefatsurfer 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

2 holiday seasons in a row where their site gets totally fubar

krighton 11-19-2012 08:21 AM

oh well, their deals were crappy anyways......not sure a refresh will help with this type of implosion.

Even with these lackluster items...the website and phone lines still crashed 10 minutes in. Wow. BF-ers are serious this year as the savings decrease. Must be the economy.

Stickboy46 11-19-2012 08:22 AM

its a horrible idea to have this many people hit a website at once

DocMo 11-19-2012 08:23 AM

BestBuy just can't seem to get their act together. They're going to have to come strong to get me to deal with their mess this year.

slopokdave 11-19-2012 08:23 AM

Was able to grab the 27" LG Widescreen monitor, but now, nothing else! RAWR!

GD. I want movies and an SD card. This isn't anything that should be this hard. You know they have plenty of stock but I'm really worried they'll pull the "too late to get this deal" crap when it comes back up.

jreuschl 11-19-2012 08:24 AM

I'd rather have them leave a very slow site up, vs. this automatic "blizzard" warning.

Most of SDers are SM because its not hard to get to that status.. They have lot to learn from amazon and apple before they will close the doors.

hope it comes back..

chaderino 11-19-2012 08:25 AM

They just need different tiers, in my opinion.

I have it for the first time this year but i swear I didn't spend $2500 last year. I have no idea why I got it. I don't even think I spent $2500 including stuff I returned.

Some time after now.

They are quite good at generating negative PR for themselves. Any bets that when the site is finally back up, everything will already be sold out?

hyteckit 11-19-2012 08:27 AM

site crashed on me at checkout but i got a confirmatioon email. so im hopefull.

coloradoman 11-19-2012 08:28 AM

I almost finished checking out before the "blizzard warning" popped up. Delivery of the TV not until the week of December 10, at least in my neck of the woods. That's a big time JOKE

oldrtyfrog 11-19-2012 08:28 AM

I'm surprised there are so many Silver members that it crashed the site.

8mpg 11-19-2012 08:28 AM

not only that, but PS members are a teeeeeeeeeny sliver of the total number of people that shop at best buy. this should not be an issue for a sale that is open to so few people.

last year the tv deal they had for $85 sold out instantly. But later in the day they had plenty more to order. So its possible that items will come back if sold out. Possibly due to them cancelling multiple orders or other things. Though i know people are still able to purchase multiple items

It is VERY easy to spend 2500 bucks at bestbuy in a year. Specially if you used BBFB for work stuff. (reward zone points flow in when you are ordering software licenses and other business equipment!)

Got lucky lol. I did like 6 with 1-4 items per order, with the slow site. Only got one shipped then when i tried to order something after black friday (which was when all my other orders got cancelled) my online orders were immediately all cancelled. I called about it and got rude people saying can't help you you're a reseller or competitor, was a huge headache.

That's a real slap in the face to the people who do spend over $2500 a year there.

king5six1 11-19-2012 08:31 AM

Managed to get the 27 inch LG monitor and email order confirmation right before it went down. Planned to go back for some games and blu rays but like others said they will likely say sold out when the site is back up. Its only Monday and its not like a bunch of other sites are not having comparable deals. I think these "going to the BBB" posts are hilarious.

RonDo 11-19-2012 08:32 AM

You know, aside from the main site being down..they still manage to show off the Black Friday preview ad. I know I'm being cynical, but looks like an effective advertising tool for the ad.

Jrs3000 11-19-2012 08:32 AM

Epic fail calling the number they dont even let you wait they just tell you they can't answer right now and hangup. If i wasn't using points to buy everything I would say f them and go elsewhere on thursday.

twanek 11-19-2012 08:32 AM

Did they really? So $2500 in one calendar year or a free phone to get the same requirement? Yeah, thanks a lot BestBuy for wasting my day. 30 minutes still website and phone lines down. This is pathetic to the max

I'm not saying going to the BBB is worthwhile, but I wanted to buy in one place and have it done, where I had free shipping. If I have to order 2 blu rays from WM and 2 from Amazon and whatever I'll end up getting screwed on the shipping charges. I was looking forward to placing one order and not having to go out to 7 different places on BF.

Yeah, my brother bought a phone and used my rewardzone card and I got silver. I haven't bought more than $50 from them all year otherwise.

krighton 11-19-2012 08:34 AM

they should have a Super Silver for people that actually spend $2500.
