Are you sure you just didn't get a RZ auto issue certificate?
Because that's what probably happened.
With that said everyone feel free to waste their time discussing this topic further.

The certificates appear to be linked to being a bonus for having a Best Buy Credit Card. I just logged into My Best Buy and that's the description it is giving me for my issued cert.

See now we can call and complain about not getting it because they won't give us a credit card!

The crazy thing is that even though the Best Buy Credit Card is solid on its rewards as long as you use it solely at Best Buy, you actually get better Cash Back with a US Bank Cash + Visa Card.  Just make sure to choose "Electronics" as one of your 2 categories each quarter and you get 5% on all purchases at Best Buy.  You can also actually use it to get better rewards at Amazon compared to the Chase Amazon Visa Card (3% Cash Back) by using "Book Store" as a category as well (US Bank Cash + Visa = 5%).

If anyone is considering signing up for a BB CC. Not sure if at all stores so YMMV, but my BB is offering $20 credit on your first $50+ purchase with the CC after you sign up.

Fat Wallet actually has a good thread in their Finance Forum discussing all the various credit cards that are worth getting for rewards.  This is why you would be using it, yes?  The thing about rewards credit cards is that you never want to carry a balance on them because that will negate the rewards because the interest is generally higher on them compared to other credit cards.  From my understanding, the Discover It credit card is great because of the 5% in rotating categories and the free FICO credit score in your statements now, but it would not get you 5% at Best Buy all the time - only when the appropriate category is used that quarter.

That was the first thing I checked, but my points that I need for a cert hadn't posted yet. Appears to be a lucky $5! A first for me, I NEVER get their cert emails...

Where is the "hide thread" button?

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

You always get bonus points at bestbuy on discover if you log into your discover card account and go to the shopping section and select a retailer on the list then click the hyperlink to their site and either order for shipping or in-store pickup. That includes all of the retailers on the site.

The rotation bonuses are for normal in store swipes of your car. But any of the retailers always get the bonus points when you order online through a link via discovercard.com

Thanks for the helpful information!  I do not have a Discover card yet, but I do plan on eventually applying for a Discover It card.  Out of curiosity, if you are purchasing through Discover's shopping section within their website, that would prevent you from getting Cash Back from another referral service like eBates or FW, wouldn't it?

They gave me a $10 certificate when I emailed them, asking why Wii U version of Watch_Dogs isn't apart of the $10 preorder promotion. They blamed Ubisoft...

They gave me a $60 cert when I told them the ps4 I got from AWD didn't include a game. They were totally confused but after 4 hours on the phone, they agreed. You people are so negative. I spend thousands of dollers every month at bb. Doesn't hurt to ask.

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.

Best Buy never sends me anything anymore. I think using all the Reward Zone certificates they mistakenly printed to my account has caught up with me.

I got Amazon credit when I called BBY, so I complained about it to Amazon and they gave me some Target credit to make up for it.  Now I can complain to Target about the B2G1 being over and they'll give me some BBY credit.

I spent the last thee hours on the phone with Best Buy trying to get a $5 credit. I'll keep trying until I get a supervisor who gives in. However, I feel they now they owe me a $20 credit for wasting my weekend.

My luck is up on the horizon!!! I received 4 emails in my different accounts, I wonder if I can combine them in one purchase or I'm going to bitch at BBY customer service over something they have no control over.
