If you have a BB credit card, you can use that credit card to buy things and it's very easy to reach $2500 requirement (you pay your bills and buy groceries etc.). After $2500 requirement, you can stop use that card and you're Silver for the year, it's really that simple. People tend to take your post negatively because you don't even bother to see how easy it is to rake in the benefits... Silver members get free shipping, that's one cool perk if you ask me.

I have no doubts on the good deals you get for being Silver. You also get 60 days to PM and return things, so it's a great perk. But on the other hand, it's still not easy to reach the requirement.

When I received the offer I claimed it and printed out the page that had the barcode on it. I took it into Best Buy last Wednesday, and the cashier wouldn't scan it. He compared the number on it to my Reward Zone card, said it was the same and he didn't need to scan it.

I only made a small 14.99 purchase. Currently my pending points for that transaction is 14. So I don't know if it worked or not.

I'm going to try again in a couple of days, to see if it even works and if it works multiple Wednesdays. There are items I want anyway so Double Points isn't a make-or-break deal in this case.

It's not easy to spend $2500 on a credit card within a calendar year? I don't know what your budget/income and whatnot is, but that can easily be done with groceries alone, no?

these type of points promos do show once they show as pending on your account so if they aren't showing then you didn't get them

call customer service

One way is to buy giftcards for the phone company you use, basically paying your phone bill at best buy. Another is to buy the visa giftcards that your can use anywhere.

A lot of CAGs including myself were upgraded to Silver status earlier without spending $2500 a year.

Terrible that this double points offer is a one-time offer, not every Wednesday.

Looking at the wording, I would think that this does work every Wednesday. The offer can only be redeemed/claimed once but the offer itself includes multiple Wednesdays.

Let me see if i read this right: You get a one time 2x point purchase on any Wednesday only if you redeem the coupon and hand it in.. AND its only in store.. is that right?

What a friggin worthless reward. Most of my purchases the past week or so were online, and the few that were in store are no longer on sale either.

I considered taking them in and return/rebuying them on a Wednesday, but then i wouldn't get the prices I originally payed... seriously, am I missing something? I read it twice but it seems thats how it works. A single use coupon you print out that can only be done on a single Wednesday, and ONLY in store. Can someone clarify this. It may mean that it works for every Wednesday which is slightly better, but even then its still quite weak.


You are reading it wrong.

It's every Wednesday. Per the offer page: "Wednesdays are more rewarding". That's plural. And later "you get 2X points on all in-store purchases made on Wednesdays, now through 12/26/12". Again, plural. After you claim your reward, all you're really doing is printing off your member #. "Reward Zone member number or claim coupon must be presented at time of purchase"

"Cashier Instructions: 1) Scan member number barcode below or look up member. 2) Scan qualifying product UPC(s) and all other product(s) being sold. 3) Press total."

You are right though, it's in-store only. Basically, if you are a silver member, you may as well claim this offer ASAP no matter if you decide to shop on Wednesdays or not.

I suppose I overreacted a little. But it's kind of ridiculous expecting us to spend $2500 a year at Best Buy. I'm not bitter, I just find it to be a rather stupid requirement.



I didn't see anything about that in other threads. How do you get Silver status so easily?

$2500 is so very easy since BB themselves allows u to turn all of ur purchases from anyplace that accepts visa into a "bestbuy" purchase. Say u have a cell phone bill which is $100/month thus $1200/yr. Buy a pre-paid visa & pay it ur halfway way to silver status right there. $200/month $2400/yr car insurance puts u within $100 of silver status on just 1 bill. Points earned thru trades count towards silver status as well.
There's a $6 fee but ur earning points on the full $206 purchase already & once ur silver that fee is negated by the RZ points earned.

Also, $2500 isn't really that big of a deal from BB's standpoint(although each persons ability to spend is different based on of ton of factors) since it's geared towards people who would be spending more generally. $50/week is the break down so 2 blu rays, 2 dads a week, larger items mixed in thru the yr, an @gamer sub, cheap games gets u there quite easily. Add in some purchases from friends who don't care & done deal.

Trying to figure this out too. So last week I had to go to two stores to get movies since each store had different inventory. Spent over $100 specifically for the double points but in multiple transactions.

Also, I have a best buy credit card and automatically get double points without doing anything. I checked my pending points and see nothing mentioning the Wednesday off so I assume I'll have to call customer service to get my 2x points.

Did you ‘claim’ the offer ahead of time?

I bought a Wii U yesterday, so I am interested to see if I actually get the 2X points, the store reps were pretty confused when I presented them the coupon.

Has anyone had the site change from claim this offer to offer claimed? I've clicked it on different days, but every time I check again, it still says to claim this offer. I have no idea if I would get double points or not, since it seems like it isn't going through.

I can still claim it from the detailed page, but on the overall offers page, it states that I have claimed it with a green check.

I bought a laptop last Wednesday and there's no mention of it on the RZ website transaction. Looks like I'll be calling CS when I have the time.

Maybe someone can clear this up for me.

Let's say I was buying a 3DS at $169.99.

I would obviously get 169 points.

Now I'm also a Best Buy Credit Card User, so I would get 2 points for every $1 spent, so I'd actually get double that, which is 338.

If I were to buy one Wednesday, I'd get double points as well?

So it'd be 169 (Original) + 169 (Credit Card Bonus + 169 (Wednesday): 507 total

Is that correct? Or am I missing a bonus somewhere? I assuming I wouldn't get the 25% premier silver bonus as the Wednesday one would be overriding it?

U can convert the gc to pre-paid visa then buy walmart gc's to convert into walmart pre-paid visa which earn points again. Factor in $10 in fees but if u have tons of credit the promos make it work

I don't think the double points on gaming works on hardware, just on software.

I've read in the thread that the coupon is just your reward zone #? So do I actually need to use it or am I good as long as I clicked "claim" on the website?

You should be. The fine print says "Cashier Instructions: 1) Scan member number barcode below or look up member."

FWIW, I called up RZ and asked about the double points for this not showing on my pending points transactions. They said that because it's a promotion and not a coupon, that it won't show up until the points post. I'm watching my first Wed purchase like a hawk to see if it posts with double points or not.

That's what I'm going to do as well, wait it out.
