Nice. I'll have to look into what advantages this would get me over the freeloader tier. I've got plenty of Best Buy gift certificates.

Here we go. I'm assuming it would put you in the "preferred status" category.

I'm pretty sure that gets you into the preferred status.

I'm ordering but i can't believe they actually wrote "guarenteed christmas delivery". I placed 2 orders on 11/24 and only recieved one of them all of 2 days ago.

Alright so to anyone else who tried to order but was denied shipping.. be prepared to just not recieve this. If the product isn't in stock when best buy actually sends you your ready for pickup info.. which could be in several days.. they'll just cancel your order.

If you really want it, buying it off the shelf after work would be the best way. Just saying because a couple weeks ago they canceled a $150 order i placed, cause magically the cheap items weren't still in the store a week later (imagine that) when they actually processed my order.

Totally worth it for the storage and sprint at level 1, IMO.
