LOL. Given GCU combined with DOTD and random sales, no way in hell am I going to get a "we miss you" coupon from Best Buy.

Is there a "You again? Fu....." coupon?

Same here. I bought a few things from best buy the past couple weeks and received the coupon. It's the first time they've sent me this mysterious coupon, so keep hope alive 😉

What is the point of these "Check your email" threads? As if no one ever checks their email.

 

I imagine 99.9% of these are from people who earned a rewards certificate and didn't pay attention. Besides these aren't actually deals because its purely by random chance that a small select set of people will get one, and if you didn't get one there is no way to take advantage of "The Deal" thus negating the purpose of posting it.

Sometimes Gmail puts some of my Best Buy emails in the spam folder.  A thread like this helped me in the past.  I am glad the OP posted this even though I didn't get one.

 

If a thread doesn't interest me I don't click on it.  Seems simple enough.

Well, it might prompt people to check their spam/junk folder if the email got filtered away.  I check that randomly maybe four times a year.

 

FYI, I didn't have to check my spam folder to see mine. ;)

Wonder if everyone will troll your thread as bad as they did mine last week. Once upon a time the CAG community appreciated these heads up....now it's all about flips.

(I have Gamer Unlocked and I have shopped there at least once a week the past few months)

The point is to check your junk/spam folder so you don't lose out on the coupons. Some people have multiple emails and spam folder that they may not check regularly.

These emails specifically stat they are "we miss you" coupons with a 2 week expiration, not multiple months like the standard certs. Some people in the past (not me personally) have called customer service, and politely asked if they would recieve this "deal" and have been successful.

If you have any further questions, please continue to Troll this thread I will try my best to educate you. Together we can conquer your ignorance.

I never get these :/.

Make sure all of your info in synced mybb, email address & phone #.

Also, even with the random coupons it`s not all that random at all, putting yourself "in the system" more frequently not just with purchases makes a difference too. A few CAG lurkers stated things changed after they did a BB phone & email/store survey,, seemed like once they responded a few weeks later they starter getting more attention.

I think I'm just going to just fraudulently make up one of these threads some day. Then EVERYONE will know what it feels like to lose five dollars that they never had in the first place. 

 

FYI: I feel lousy, but very "meh" about the lousiness.

I don't believe it.

I honestly don't believe this.

 

For the first time I've actually received one of these things over the past year and a half of seeing these damn topics. I actually got the cerificate. I'd crack open a beer if I didn't have to go to work now.



Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

I got an email from Best Buy this morning too!

 

Unfortunately all it was was them telling me how I get free expedited shipping. Thanks BB, as if I didn't know, I've only been Silver/ Elite Plus for the past few years. 

 

Still continuing my streak of never once having received these promo certificates.

they dont actually miss anyone, it's just a data collection technique...they can afford to send out $5 certs to a random sample to see how many people use them, and on what....write that off to marketing or research or whatever.  

 

 

edited to add:

my point is that it would sound weird to say " you've been randomly selected to be included in a data mining event" so they tell you they missed you.  which only sounds a little less weird.  ;)
