I just think everyone is a little jealous and envious of all the success you have getting PM's; especially atypical PM's that involve GC's or coupons and bundles.
I understand you put a lot of legwork in and took the time to get familar with the reps at your store and at the BB Forums; but honestly I feel like if I make a big commotion at my store then I'm going to have a bullseye on my back. I spend a lot of money on games there and if it is a super hot deal I buy to resell or flip elsewhere. That is against BB's T&C. You can not be a RZ member and be a reseller. Saving an extra $5 to $10 isn't worth me having my account red flagged. Also, I only have one Best Buy in my market, the next closest is over 100 miles.
I am fairly positive that if I started bringing each game, system, accessory etc back sometime during the 45 day window to get a price guarantee or a return/rebuy or a price match to another retailer I'm going to get myself banned from that store.
Why would you get banned for exercising your rights to their PM policy? Not arguing just questioning.
Enuf told me to complain on BB forum for a store not complying w/ PM protocol.
I received a phone a call about a week later from the manager of the store.
During the conversation I told her, "You do you BB is not doing me any favor when you guys are PMing right? I am doing you guys a favor by giving you the opportunity to earn my business." At that point she acknowledged the shortsightedness in her store and apologized graciously about any inconveniences.
