The Xbox One Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta is well underway and there are many users still waiting for an email from Best Buy with their Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta code that users need to register for the beta so that they can start the Black Ops 3 beta download.
Activision and Treyarch started the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta late Tuesday, earlier than planned. Immediately there was an issue redeeming the Xbox One Black Ops beta tokens for many users.
But another group of users are still waiting for their Best Buy Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta codes that come from a pre-order. If you ordered online from Best Buy, there is a good chance you did not get the code you need to register with Call of Duty to get the download codes.
Here’s how you can ask Best Buy for a new Xbox One BO3 beta code without waiting on hold, waiting for a Twitter reply or going to a store for a new pre-orders.
Over the last 24 hours we’ve seen a number of users asking Best Buy where their Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta codes are. Best Buy states that it can take up to 72 hours for a code to arrive, but for many users it is a week or longer.
This is how we contacted Best Buy to get a Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta code after waiting for it to arrive for weeks. Once we contacted the right person at Best Buy, we had a code by the next morning.
You’ll need to register for an account on the Best Buy Unboxed forums. This is a login separate from your Best Buy login, so keep track of the password and username.
Once you are set up there, you need to send a message to Mike-BBY asking for a beta key. Here is the message you should send and the subject you should use. Go to this profile page and send click on Send this user a private message.
Subject – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Xbox One – Beta Key
Hello I ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on DATE and still do not have the beta code.
BBY Order Number
email – Your Email
Can you help provide the code so I can play the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta on Xbox One with this pre-order.
Mike is fast and in our experience is doing a great job of filling in the gaps of the automated system that failed for a number of users.

The list above is just a sample of the users who did not get their Best Buy Black Ops 3 beta code email.
Once you get that code you need to use these instructions to sign up for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta. This will result in an email from Activision that will include three Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta download codes that will let you download the Xbox One Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta and share two others with friends.
