Reward zone was done today for mantinence. It just came back up so it should be working within the next hour.

Funny thing though, BB took points away from my g/fs account and issued her a 10 dollar cert only losing 17 points total. My g/f called and asked why she lost points if she has a credit card with them and also because it issued us a cert but we couldnt find it or print it. They said it would show up in a few days and to wait but then we checked her account the next day and the cert was there but they also added 500 points to the account.

Fast forward to today and she was reimbursed 325 points today as well lol.

The Facebook app isn't working for me. Is anybody else having trouble, or is it just me?


I don't have a Facebook Account. If I made one say today would I be able to start taking advantage of the Best Buy poll right away or is there a waiting period? Also any idea how long BBY plans to continue this?

From my experience, if the game is not listed online, it will not scan in-stores, as well ... and they won't accept it unless you want to settle for the $1 generic value game UPC barcode.

My Current Lowball Sale is NOW CLOSED.  I lost so much sweat & tears. [cries]

Yeah, still down but hey, just noticed this when the main reward zone site finally popped up for me a moment ago on the right hand side under account info: "Premier Silver member through Feb 2014"

Guess I got silver for another year. Wasn't sure if I had just made it or not.

Wonder if BB is shutting down the polls lol. Either way, apparently they kicked me into another free year of Silver, so I aint complaining. Wish I had found out sooner though, barely got 125 points from it

Traded in Assassin's Creed 3 (Xbox 360) for $20. Should have been $21 with my Unlocked membership, but the cashier was clueless on how to make that stack on top of the 100% bonus so he lazily lied to me by saying it would show up when I tried to use the gift card. I knew he was full of BS but I was not in the mood to argue over $1, so $20 it is.

The app seems to be working again. Although it's now some mobile app and it's only giving 10 points instead of 25. Is this permanent or what?

Apparently not. Got 2 polls today and got 50 points. Also finally got all my pending points, so I got another 5$ coupon today.

Basically the only thing BB trade-in is good for now are the new releases. Older games have better TIVs at GS. I should have gotten Crysis 3 :(

This week has actually given me some hope that Best Buy is actually working to make the trade in/pre-owned system work. This is the first time I can think of that pre-owned games were specifically advertised (as in the specific game and price) in a weekly ad. Plus, the clearancing out of all their PS2 and PSP pre-owned games shows that they are clearing out and eliminating parts of the program that don't make sense any more. Combine that with the fact they are still offering good values for new games gives me some hope that someone is over at corporate trying to make the whole thing work.

As a heads up, the reward zone facebook app is giving 25 points per poll again (well, for today's poll at least). There is also a new member choice thing available which will net another 25.

Now to just see what the TIVs go to when it's only 50% bonus. They need to be at least 24 base to be equivalent to now. I have faith.

That's BS. Try another Best Buy or different employee.

Its not bs. Stores have to abide by local pawn laws. You can see what restrictions your store has by searching the trade in store locater.

Pawn laws? Those pawn laws are bs. Which makes Best Buy's rule bs. You can only trade in a game you bought in that store? That's so stupid.

LA has the same problem. 4 closest to me don't take trade-ins. They won't take it unless you have a receipt to prove it. Doesn't matter if it's 1-20 years old, you need the receipt. So lying and saying you purchased it there won't work.

EDIT:
Aliens Colonial Marines is up for $18. Might want to trade that in before the price plummets.

Really? I have never ran into that requirement. They do swipe your ID and scan your fingerprint though. Maybe you didn't present your ID?

The Tampa Best Buys require that you bought the game from that specific store (with receipt) supposedly due to the local pawn laws. But it doesnt make sense to me as how in the world do regular pawn shops exist in Tampa? I have never stepped foot inside a pawn shop, but I thought you could sell your stuff to them if you wanted to. I doubt all the pawn shops in Tampa could exist without being able to buy stuff that people didnt buy from them.

Fuck work

Laws like that exist to discourage/prevent pawn shops from opening. Its quite possible there aren't any pawn shops in city limits.

Note I have no knowledge of tampa politics or laws. The above is not meant as an absolute truth.
