I doubt it is as easy as 10 returns a week and you're banned. If it was, Best Buy could had implemented this without needing to pay for TRE's returns tracking system.

They say it's around 10+ returns per week for a short period. Maybe like doing this for a month.

I'm not banned or flagged at around 3 returns per week. Sometimes, I like to drive to other BBs to return because that Geek Squad guy is remembering me... ;)

As for how the hell do I do 3 returns per week, I spend a lot there thanks to CAG. And with Silver, the points and stuff keep racking up. I currently have a $20 cert waiting for me. With a lot of impulse buys, some stuff goes back. :)

Exactly.

Telling people what the criteria is for a ban is never done. For obvious reasons.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

So now that the magazine is digital, what happens to new Gamers Club paid subscribers?

Do you get the current month issue sent/emailed to you right away? Or do you actually need to cycle through to the next month?

I'm thinking about finally signing up. Especially if any of these go on sale (Doom 3, TTT2, ZOE HD).

I thought I saw people talking about using these coupons 2 times. Are you using the code online for 1 and then taking the actual coupon to the store for the second use? Or am I just imagining things? If not, has anyone tried this.

Doom is disappearing from the shelves! I doubt this stuff is gonna hit 10 bucks, I gave in on TTT2 and am satisfied. Is doom BFG(PS3) worth $20 too? I never played it but heard great things back in the day.

When you re-up your forced digital.

It is only for those that somehow snuck by the cut off date that still get a physical mag. Anyway, digital is better anyway with 2x the use of a coupon - if they happen to not throw clearance game coupons in the mag, lol.


How are people using the digital coupon twice?

One coupon is a barcode to use in store. The other is a promo code to use online. Not linked to each other.

Example: use barcode coupon in store for DBZ for $5. Then go online, put DBZ in cart. Checkout and enter promo code where prompted on checkout screen. Set for in-store pick up. Bam 2 copies of DBZ for $10 + tax.

I live in the land of Best Buys (Twin Cities area) and have to say that Doom 3 and Zone of the Enders are disappearing fast. Of the four stores within my "daily ruote" if you will, only one seems to have a single copy of ZoE left and two had Doom (one only had one copy left though, can't say about the other).

I have talked to many BB employees, and they say that you have to do about 10 returns in a week before you're flagged. I do around 3 returns per week, and I think that's a bit high, but it's totally fine.

Many CAGs should be safe. :)


There is more to it then what you say as there have been plenty of people with less returns in a week then get banned. Working with the forum mods and customer cases of bans it seems to be a weighted system with added flags.

This is all speculation but what I've seen:

It weights money in returns vs money used for purchases the most. Ie you spend a lot then you can do more returns.

Secondly it weighs large ticket items differently then small ticket. Mainly because of the above. Sometimes for the customer sometimes against.

There's flags for quantity returned vs quantity bought. Ie you return 50% of your items regardless of prices etc.

There's time frames also. As no return for x number of days seems to lesson the strikes against you. Or possibly what you mentioned the x times in a week.



Probably much more also. Just small things I believe are part of the equation.

It is worth $20. Lengthy campaign and the expansion. As long as youre good with it being a corridor shooter. Just know what youre getting.

How do they track purchases vs. returned for individuals?

For example, I can buy two games and pay both with cash. When I return, they'll track my return on my ID.

Does their system track purchases? If I bought 20 games on one receipt and returned none and paid all using cash, how do they track purchases like that to deem a person as a viable customer or not?

It would have to be a MSRP drop, I don't ever recall a clearance item going on sale that wasn't part of a promo for the newest game.

So i am not sure this has been answered already. I have never done the price matching before. Based on best buys website, it seems if it doesnt say price match guarentee they will not match the price on an item? Or will they match any item or is it store by store basis? I was planing on trying to get a few price matches but dont want to get there and they say no for some reason. The prices are from one of the competitors they match.

Okay i have a question.
If i don't have a best buy i can get to nearby, is the @gamer subscription still worth it? I don't know if shipping for BB is reliable since i remember last year
Alot things that went on sale ended up backordered for me *ahem Vanquish *ahem. And are the costs for shipping on these items reasonable? And are the coupon codes usable for all these items online? Or are there certain ones exclusive to in store only?

Digital subscriptions (all new ones now) get an in-store and online coupon. Some of these coupons are for clearance type items that aren't even listed online anymore. I don't know about shipping because it's free for me as premier silver.

Yeah! I finally received my magazine today, and was glad to see that the coupons active dates are from March 3rd to April 6th. Already have BF3 and AC:R, so I'm hoping ZOE HD will be on sale by then.
