Best Buy RZ Premier Black?

Just got an email that I was upgraded to Premier Black...which looks like a step above silver, which I don't even qualify for at all. Anyone else get this? Sadly, the website is not up yet so I can't see the concierge service that's promised. But I do get free shipping on everything now

I just got the same email and came here to see if anyone else did. I am also not able to connect to their website...

I got the email too. Not sure how, since I've barely used the Reward Zone card.

Nothing. Not even in my junk folders

They also owe me a $5 cert currently that I so desperately want by the time I pick up Rock Band 2 in 11 days.

Got the same thing as well.

I first logged on the the reward zone site (not the link provided in the email) and I logged in and nothing on there indicates anything about Premiere Black.

I only buy dvds mostly and only a few every few months. Only have about 80 points right now.

I have spent far more at Best Buy than a friend of mine and he got this today and I have received nothing. I wonder how they go about selecting their Black members?

I got it too. From what I'm seeing on other forums it sounds like everyone received it. Most people seem to be thinking it was an error. Instead of going out to people that have spent over $5000 like it should have, it was mistakenly sent to everyone with a Reward Zone card.

Got the same email. It's hard to tell what else it offers above Silver at this point. I qualified for silver a while back and all that has added is a 25% bonus on points (which is pretty nice.) I guess banking points is pretty good as well.

I wonder if it's going out to people who have not been using their cards as incentive to do so. I got the email today. I think I've used my card once this year. I remember signing up for the rewards card when it first came out - it was free by invitation. After the first year went by I got a notification that I needed to renew - and there was a fee ($20 I think). I deleted the notice and went on about my business. A few weeks later they renewed it on their own and it's never expired since.

I remember that. I wonder if this is part of the plan for black rz: to entice people with the extra points and services and then after x amount of time offer to renew the service at a price. (And, yes, I received the email notice, too.)

Yeah, I recieved this too. I've also spent about $3000.00 there this year. SO unless their Blu-ray prices come down, I've learned my lesson and won't be spending as much. Good deals from various web sites have helped.

I got the E-mail, too. I do shop at Best Buy, alot, but, I'm not sure that I do enough to qualify for this level. I mean, I'll take it if I get it, but, I think it's strange that people are getting it, and don't even use their Reward Zone card.

Got this in email. Bummer it was a mistake. Free Shipping would get me to buy more things at best Buy.
