Nice. Will use the free $10 to get a Gamers Club Unlocked sub for $5. Then I can get in on all those $20 pre-order bonuses for next year.

Thanks OP.

Definitely can't with Reward Zone Certificates =(. You also can't use RZ Certs to buy the prepaid Visa cards anymore.

Went all the way to checkout and you are able to add certificates to it. Which is weird since usually gift cards block off the area to add reward certificates.

Yeah I was given the option to pay with GC but it is not the right amount. Not sure what to do since I tried as a guest and a different browser already and nothing. Weird.

Yeah I am not sure why GCs are being allowed. It is so tempting to get $50 in free money but I also don't want to abuse it. I will do it one time for sure if it ever comes out right just to see if it goes through.

That's nice Best Buy. But at least do better than Target. It's called competition.


What is Target doing?

If BB allows people to use gifts cards (which the will) people with tons of BB credit will abuse the hell out of this. Why u so dumb Best Buy?

Deal works for me. $50 total for $60 credit and I'm out in CA. BB was smart enough to do this for online shipping only and not for store pickup. Chose expedited shipping since it's free with Silver members. Hopefully my new gift cards will get here in the mail in a few days before the deal expires on the 18th.

RZ certs didn't work on my order.
