Quick question for those of you that got silver membersship. How did that happen? Did you use your BB GC to buy GCs to other stores? I've only gotten $6 in credit for my "silver status" and I think that is because I bought a subscription to Gamers Club.

May just have to stop in and ask the girls to do a test trade-in for me. I'm almost out of Best Buy gift cards...

OP updated. Changed the "promo" font color, so many we can stop complaining about the mobile version of the site.


that shade of yellow is very aggressive and hurts my eyes. Change it to an grey-ish color. I demand you conform to my every request. Even if all i had to do was switch to the full site from the mobile version by pressing one button.

They did the same thing with my Max Payne pre-order. When I told them to fix it they said to just do it at home on their Reward Zone website. :roll:

I know I personally just spend a crapload of money there, always (and only) when there's a sick sale, coupon, or glitch (just like a lot of CAG's). Yes, I'm the proverbial 'devil customer' in their classic definition, yet I spent $1000's there each year, and they keep rewarding me for it! :)

I'll probably trade in ME3 (360) with the 60% bonus towards Max Payne 3 so I can also get the $20 eGC bonus.

i think you'd basically just cancel the one and put the 5 towards the other one.

Yeah. I'm not sure that will work with the 20$ gift card but didn't feel like arguing.

I'm still completely dumbfounded as to how I got silver on not one but both accounts I have with BB.:lol: I have my main account and the one I made when I forgot my log-in info that I only used to make online purchases with.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Why wouldn't it work? The same thing happened to me with my Max Panye 3 order so I just added it to my account through their RZ site. Its now pending under my purchases. I had to do the same thing with the pre-order 5 deal as well and I still got my cert at the end with no problems.

You must have got silver from the amazon cards then, since BB gcs don't count towards the total. I bought like 15 games in the past 2 months (with tradein credit) and I have $6 spent for silver.

Amazon cards don't work either.

Consolidating BBGC's will get you to silver though.

That still doesn't explain the second RZ account I have getting RZ Silver though. The only purchase I made on it this year was those Black Ops Prestige bundles and that was last summer sometime. I think I spent around $150 or so then.

Since then I haven't used that account for anything, yet I still got the bump. Maybe it's BB's way of trying to entice some customers who don't make a lot of purchases into buying more stuff due to the RZ Silver benefits?

all my tivs stayed the same. fingers crossed.

and nope. didnt consolidate giftcards at all. idky but i got silver.
i know you dont earn points with giftcards, but you must earn silver. that's the only reason i would have it cuz i spent $0 and my friends using my phone # didnt spend anything over like 100.

also seems you can get a free rental from nba 2k11 preowned @ bestbuy and play for a few days then flip back for some free rz points.

now worth the hassle for me tho, especially for a sports game, lol

ooh also amazon gives 10.80 for 360 version. you would need it complete tho. not like this is big money tho
lol, it's 9.75 total for instore pickup. i might as well just buy amazon credit if im only making a dollar. haha
i keep trying tho! PERSEVERANCE

You either have to have them scan your RZ card or look up your info via the phone number linked to your Reward Zone card.

Actually, you don't have to earn it. Best Buy dishes out free 1 year Silver memberships on lottery to just give Reward Zone members a taste of what it is like. I am Silver now and legitimately earned it. The first time I got it though, was the same way you got it...by good fortune. When the year is up, it will revert and they will send you a new card...the standard one...unless you meet the buying threshold.

I took my cards, put em with the 3 from Nintendo club and netted like $13 on eBay. Lots of bids for them. I was fine with that.

Best buy has FFXIII-2 at $16 TIV so over $25 with promos for those who may have mastered since getting it for $15.

I tried telling them that, but they wouldn't listen. They kept insisting that it would have appeared as an offer or something. I had to go with Customer service since i was with the wife and kids (2yrs and a 2mo old) and the guy at the gaming site was out to lunch. Is there any way i can get the adjusted amount and the points, its an extra 5 bucks in rz points damn it.

They dropped it to 10 right after the deal unless it's back up again?

Out of curiosity, what is everybody's experience when doing a return/exchange when you paid for part of the item with a RZC?

Both times I've done this I was told the RZC is refunded back to your RZ account. Both times that didn't happen and then I was told by RZ CS that you just completely lose it. First time they credited me "anyway", this I'm still waiting to hear back. What ticks me off this time is that not only did I buy two things so that RZC could have been counted to the other...but I bought a preowned DS game that was faulty so it wasn't even my fault that I had to return it! Plus it was a $20 cert! Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll credit me that back plus some more...

You don't lose it. It gets credited back to your account in 3-5 business days, as the amount of points proportional to the dollar amount of the cert's refund.

So, if you get $5 back on the return, 250 points go back to your account. $3, 150 points.

If they told you that you lose the RZ cert money, they're completely wrong.

I've been told by numerous CSRs at multiple locations that I'd get my points credited back to me in 30 days.

I had recently used $210 in RZC towards a laptop. That is why I asked them the "return" question.

Well I was told in-store both times that it would be a "few days". But then by the RZCR I was told "about 30 days". Which is why I kinda threw a fit the first time and was lucky enough they just refunded me immediately.

This time I emailed them again and still waiting to see what they say. I get the 30 day thing to keep you within the return period for adding the points...but 30 days for a return (especially when it was due to a faulty item) is pretty crazy.
