Yeah, reminds me of that $10 instore pickup promo glitch. People made bank on that and would go absolutely ape shit when someone would mention it in the thread. They went even more ape shit when someone blew the whistle over at the BB forums. Haha it was pretty funny, but its all Best Buys fault. I just hope they can last a couple more years since their gaming deals are always great.


o i thought you was talking about the other glitch about buy 3 used games get 10 buck gift card i think it was to be on 19.99 and over games only

but all games worked

was grabbing sets of 3 for less then 15 then take the 10 off

3 games for less then 5

this was last nov 2011 this happened.. I remember i thought they would zero out all of the gift cards so i got myself a tv for 300 bucks

ended up with a TV + 30 games i think for less then 400 bucks whice i still have like 20 of them still sealed that i will never play since they are pure junk
WOOOO I STINK

Freakin' Best Buy took over 5 days to actually fix and put a stop to the glitch after that person blew the whistle on the forums. That was really unbelievable! What the hell were they thinking? It is definitely largely their own fault.

Why not just trade them in then? Most games will at least get you a few bucks at BB or GameStop.

We will most likely know is 1-2 days I guess.

It just depends how the system sees payments. If they do no see any difference in orders from cash vs gc then I doubt they catch anything. The fact they allow gcs to purchase these indicates to me they do not have any way of flagging these transactions. Now if the # of transactions is the flag then maybe you get caught. Just depends on how close they look at account activity. Someone with $5,000+ in activity this year might not get flagged lets say.

I believe their limit is 3 games per year for the same system. I've done two at the same time on a couple occasions when they had a 100% trade in bonus and the employee didn't bat an eye. As long as you aren't really sketchy about it, you should be fine.

Well if this means anything only my first order is at "preparing order" and cannot be cancelled. The other few are verified payment but can still be cancelled.

Edit: They are all starting to go to cannot be cancelled. Thanks OP!

In for two $10 cards, used my $23 gift card. I'll definitely be hitting up BB later today to buy some $40 games for those $40 gift cards...Then I'll really take advantage of this promo. Thanks everyone.

I believe that $40 gift card deal ended yesterday so you will not be able to really take advantage of this promo. :D

Placed 4 orders, they were all canceled:

Dear:

The order you placed on 12/16/2012 has been cancelled because we were unable to verify your information.

If you used a Reward Certificate for this order, the Reward Certificate will be reinstated within 14-17 days and may be used again. If you no longer have the Reward Certificate, please print a new one at myrewardzone.bestbuy.com.

Questions about this cancellation? Call us at 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289). For faster service, please have your order number ready when you call.

Sincerely,

Lisa Smith
Vice President
Best Buy Customer Care

I believe this account may have been flagged like 5 or more years ago though, so maybe the orders all automatically cancel forever. Sucks, I'd love to be in on the BB Gift Card Swap promo.

Let's say hypothetically someone were to use a Debit card to buy a ton of these. It's not using the GC glitch so would this hypothetical person have any risk of a ban? If not then I'm in for a tv off this deal.

they're not digital GCs so you'll have to wait until they show up in the mail to re-use them on this deal. So, no free money unless you already had GCs to use.

These are physical gc's so it is impossible to start with $50 and do it over and over unless you're going to spend $3,650.00 out of pocket.

I was able to get 2 free $10 gifts, for one $50 gift card, total now shows $60 in the cart. Pretty good deal there, I'm done!



That means you paid $60 for free $10 gc.
