    Best Buy decides what products it wants to sell to customers. It is also possible the FTW3 will come later. 

    Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3

    Its weird because they have the Evga entry level XC3 but not FTW3.  Then for Asus they list the Strix but not the Tuff.

    I worked at bestbuy for a few years, their corporate is completely disconnected with both customers and store staff. You express to them what products the customers want and they will make sure they short change or not carry those items.

    Often it’s down to the price they pay and the price they charge. Often times stores didn’t make as much as people think and it’s better for them to buy a larger stock of a single product then multiple product lines.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Many online retailers do not list parts until they at least have a commitment on the PO, have creative/copy and a plan for distribution to the retail side.  With the delayed launch of the FTW3 cards, I'm sure they are just not ready to advertise the products.

    Was just coming to the forum to say this, but the 3080 FTW are now listed at Best Buy as "Coming Soon" on the product pages.  Anyone have any ideas on when Best Buy normally makes things live or is a crap-shoot like Newegg and just have to refresh at the right time?

    Was just coming to say that, must have happened in the last 30 minutes or so. The normal FTW card still shows as Coming Soon though...
     
    Edit (3:17pm ET): all 4 "new" cards on Best Buy are bouncing between "Coming Soon"  and "Sold out" randomly

    Cards are added. Haven’t heard of any in stock though. Anyone else seen them yet? Best Buy used to suck but I’ve bought some things online from them and it has actually been really good. Fast delivery, prices match mostly everywhere else. Good supply for the most part.

    They don't even have the 3090 FTW3/Ultra listed properly. They have different SKUs but no way to tell them apart. They also don't have the NVIDIA Bonuses listed for them. (FYI i asked they do come with them even tho it doesn't say they do.)

    BestBuy.com has them listed but not BestBuy Canada. We get very little options in Canada :(
