Somewhat wrong. Gift Cards do in fact count towards your total spent (towards silver) you just don't get RZ points for them.


Only buying gift cards counts towards silver(and you get points for buying them). Using gift cards gets you nothing.

I highly doubt the facebook points will count towards it though, outside of a glitch because technically it views the facebook polls as stuff from the "partner mall" I believe.


I am not sure what gave you that idea, but no that is not correct, using any form of payment that is not a true form of cash (CC/debit card/cash) will get you nothing in terms of RZ points or progress toward premiere silver.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

It's being funny with my points now. The last poll I took, the 25 points disappeared then reappeared. Now my 50 points from the Ultimate Space thing disappeared.

Not complaining - I got enough for a second $5 certificate since they started and I'm well on my way to another. It's just strange my points keep disappearing then reappearing

Using gift cards does not get your points (this is correct) but you do get progress towards silver. You have to. I came about $100 short of making silver last year and I probably only spent about $40 in cash at Best Buy all year (exaggeration but not by much). Even counting my trade ins (which also work towards your silver) there is no way I got that high without my gift card purchases counting towards silver because it is based entirely on how much you spent; not on the form of payment used. For example, Since December 7th I have spent $12 in cash at Best Buy and that is atypically high (I bought something online when I couldn't use my gift card cause I didn't have it and I bought something for someone else because as silver I got 2 day shipping). If only cash payments counted I would of been at or around $100 towards getting silver again rather than at around $2,400. The same was true the year before when I did get silver and spent about $600 in cash at Best Buy all year.

If you mean pending points, usually a day or two. If you mean for the points to process I believe it is still 30 days despite the extended return policy. If you're points aren't showing as pending after 4 business days I'd enter them as missing using your receipt. Course you could check your receipt now to make sure your RZ info is listed on there.

its not 30 days if you have silver status. I know that much. Ive had points show up to my total alot quicker then that. I think its 2 weeks but was just hoping for some confirmation.

FYI, look through the activity feed on the app. Just found a poll for Sharp's TV's I didn't see on the other pages and a new Member's Choice poll called "The Big Game." Also, a new promo to "completely the ultimate living room" that gives 50 points.

I have points pending from January 2nd so I just assumed it was still 30 days.

The patio section in the ultimate space tab starts in 105 days, I guess it's safe to say that these polls may last until then. We'll have to see if they if they cap the points once you reach a certain amount though.

If that's true, it only takes $1250 to get to silver. Buy $1250 in gift cards and get $1250 towards silver. Spend those gift cards and get another $1250 towards silver for a total of $2500. I only have 2 purchases this year so far and one was partially paid with a gift card, so I'll see what my meter goes to when they post.

I was just about to post this, I was a little disappointed to see 10 points. Curious to see how much the next survey is worth.

I have used 5 separate ones in one transaction (one game as well). I also used a coupon with it as well. The one thing to note is the pre-tax total has to exceed the certificate total used ($10 in certs cannot be used on a $9.99 plus tax purchase).

Wow, the 10 point thing is a downer. Can't say I didn't expect a cutback sooner or later though.

The other bonus things (Member's Choice, and The Big Game) were a nice surprise. I'd prefer the 25 daily points, but you can't have your cake and eat it too...
