It's in the Points "Archive" Spoilertag showing that it expired yesterday, and I just signed-in at NewEgg to make doubley-sure; yeah, it's dead.

As it says, Buy.com became Rakuten. In another thread, someone mentioned that Rakuten is big enough in its home country to be compared to Amazon. Also? When you make a purchase, your transaction is covered by Google--a prompt comes up as soon as you confirm your order asking if you'd like to have your purchases covered by them and after agreeing, you get a confirmation from Google via email.

Many of the third-party sellers have high ratings, it's just like Amazon's third-party seller's market in that respect. They all have their own return policies and usually there's an umbrella policy covered by Buy.com/Rakuten on top of that.

Bunch of rather-bland 12-month gold deals known for this week added to the OP. Still waiting for Best Buy to get there shite together on their site (as usual), this time with the Gears:Judgement Pass extra-400pt deal--deja vu, anyone?--there's supposed to be details for the promo but it leads to a 404 page; way to be, Best Buy.

Best Buy is running a surprise Easter Day ONLY sale, bonus 400pts with a bunch of point cards--but if you don't use their individually unique links, you don't see/get the bonus. Deals & links are in the OP (as usual), the best deal is obviously the 1600pt card + bonus for $19.99, I listed them in order of best value to worst (that 4k card is downright miserable, but still a deal technically).

Seeing as how Best Buy isn't opened today, perhaps this is best worried about if the bonus holds-over for more than just today, yeah? :booty:

I ordered two of the 1600 point cards and one of the orders got cancelled because apparently you can only order one per household.

Anyways, they sent me the bonus 400 point code about 1 hour after i ordered.
Good deal.

Interesting. Last week I had no trouble ordering two. I think I had to make two separate orders.

I was going to hold off since I'm not really in need of points, but I received an email from BB Reward Zone of a $10 bonus certificate that I had to use by 4/1. 2000 points for $10? A no-brainer now... :)

With the points cards on Best buy (1600+400), do they email you? I'm scared it'll ship the physical card.

400 point card is digital, 1600 point card is physical. So you're either going to have to do in-store pickup or get it shipped.

I thought it kind of goes without saying when it says "card" that means you're getting a physical XBL card.

Don't be scared, bro. It only takes a week-or-so to get a card shipped. If you urgently need points, then I guess this isn't a decent deal... but why turn to ebay? If anything, in dire straits, and you neeeeeeed points, why not turn to Amazon...? At least that's reliable, and from the search I just did on ebay, about the same rate.

This must be a recent thing since the Best Buy clearance event I was able to order 2 rayman origins but then the week later when Prototype 2 was 5 bucks, they canceled my second order. I guess they are catching on with the multiple orders people tend to make.

Woot, 1600pt cards are back in-stock for shipping. Ordered a second one, no problems for me. Even earned some Discover cashback--granted probably two bucks, but money is money. :D

Starting today and running until 4/17, that same page now offers a $10-discount if you use V.me as payment (the new Visa-sponsored PayPal rival--and no, you don't need a Visa to use V.me).

Will update the OP a little later, I'm not doing so hot this week. :headache:

Alright, OPs appropriately strikethru'd and aforementioned V.me promotional price on Rakuten has been added, absolutely nothing going on elsewhile--which sucks. Half the reason I waited to update was in hopes that something would turn-up by Tuesday but tis not to be this week, and the other reason was this massive sinus infection I've been fighting since Sunday night (these Upstate NY drastic weather changes can go shaq-fu themselves).

As soon as I saw Fred Meyers I thought, 'this must be Cornelius,' sure enough. :lol:

Got an email from Groupon offering 12-months of Gold for the un-spectacular price of $45 (and maybe tax -- not NY though so maybe just CA?) for those very desperate and don't want to sign up for V.me; frankly though, in the two-three weeks it'll take to get this in the mail, there'll probably be a better price pop-up.

Slapped up the vague deets in the OP about the Gears: Judgement Season Pass with bonus points, will update tomorrow when a real link is given and everything is confirmed. (Man, this card is like a bad penny lately, but that's good since it's been about the only consistent deal for over a month--aside from last week... which felt like a forever-long drought for some reason.)

Hooray for having a deal on points again! \\:D/
