Not as good as the 3X RZ point coupon for in-store use on Sat. after Black Friday when combined with the sale prices that were taking place. If you have a big ticket item now is the time to get it. They also give free swag/coupons to those who show up(ranges from good-great).

BB has a b2g1 game deal for ALL GAMES $30 or more so it's almost an extra $5 credit per set.

If you have interest in that 3Dtv + PS3 deal for $600 this would also work for you(even better if you received your $100 RZ)
$600 + tax for the package w/$20 credit & 200 outta 250 RZ points(600 Base RZ points, 600 bonus points)
***add another 150 RZ points if your silver & the credit jumps to $25 w/100 outta 150 RZ points needed for another $5

Each $60 game would come with 240 outta 250 points needed for $5 RZ cert(unless RZ silver)
120 base RZ points
120 gamers club points
***15 points for 25% Silver bonus

Also, text "REMINDME" to 332211 & check the store locator for the stores participating in the Private shopping event.

There's a Itunes card deal in next weeks target ad that can be pm'd & combined with this deal for those who want/need itunes cards.
edit:it's not as good as I thought
4 pack of $15 cards for $54...I thought it was $45

The new weekly ad hasn't surfaced yet, has it? Maybe there will be some nice deals to make this event a little more worthwhile.

I forgot about this. Hopefully free stuff is awesome. With maybe a price match or two.

Unfortunately, if you're not Silver, you will likely get screwed out of points just like I have for the last two years in a row. Basically, anything you earn in December is lost the first week in January, even if it's not posted yet due to the annual reset. Just a warning to anyone who is counting these points in any potential savings.

Hey Enuf.. SD has a thread stating that next week BB will be offering a $50 GC with purchase of a 3DS console. Can anyone confirm this?

I know..the BB ads are usually slow, but they should be out by now, judging by history.

I don't have the BB ad yet just Target but it wouldn't surprise me though

Just saw that as well... would the @Gamer coupons stack with that? You could get Once Upon a Monster for $29.99 then...

I have a $30 gift card, so if it works on $29.99 games, It would esentially be a B1G2 deal for me, hopefully there will be some games on sale or something that will be worth $30 to me.

Didn't they already do the annual reset? I was about 4-500 dollars away from Silver but now it's back to $2500. Either way I'm on a semi-boycott of Best Buy until they fix my account. Right now they don't have my games for the preorder promo and now my gamer unlock is gone too. Next year I'll just go with Amazon.

Do they ever have anything good at these private shopping events?

Seems like I've already been getting 2x points on game purchases I've made in the past couple months. For example, last week I had bought Deus Ex, BF3, and AC Revelations for ~$68 (B2G1 coupon) and I had received 128 RZ points.

Why do people always think the bonus points will double as well?

If you pay with anything other than a BB credit card, you'll get the regular points (60 for Enuf's example), 'double' bonus points for the event (60), and the GC bonus points (60). If you pay with a BB card or RZ Mastercard, you can add in another set of bonus points, bringing the total up to 240 for a $60 game.

No stores doing this anywhere near me and not worth me driving a distance Sunday night.

Nope. In early January they will actually clear out any pending or existing points in your account. If you have 250 or more, they will automatically be converted to certs. Any less than that or anything pending but not posted yet gets wiped totally. Last year I lost something like 700 points from purchases in early December that never posted when they did the reset the first week in January.

JESUS CHRIST!!! :O I didn't know that. I already calculated all my points so by early January I'll will only have 139 points left in account. Thanks for the info :).

unless your planning on getting a big ticket item it wouldn't be worth it. But that 3DTV + PS3 deal with this can be good if only the $100 RZ was already in my account or PSVita was in-store then I'd all set.

I'm wondering if any of this will work since it states right on the site that "Bonus points (as defined in the rules) will not be multiplied. Not good in combination with any other coupons or offers. Visit MyRZ.com for Reward Zone program rules."

How did it work on the event after Black Friday? Can anyone actually verify that they were able to use the B2G1 free coupon, or that they received double unlocked bonus points?

I like the sales Best Buy has had lately, but these reward points offers do nothing for me. And things like wiping points totals at the beginning of the year makes them an even worse deal.

Taking my mother-in-law tonight because they want to buy an Xbox. They have deal at the event that you get:

Get a FREE1 Just Dance 3 game
for Kinect™ with Best Buy exclusive bonus tracks when you purchase select Microsoft┬« Xbox 360┬« Consoles with Kinect.

In their weekly ad they have:

Free $75 Gift Card
with Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle

So I am opening she can get the Bundle for $399 and get the free dance game and $75 GC. It seems to be the best deal I can find so far but not sure if they will let her do both.

Their website says $1000 off some 55" LG 3dtv, I assume this is just going to be the $2700 model which will just make it $1700, which isn't even as good as Amazon (Order Subtotal: $1,566.72 in cart)?

No sure on the LG either.

Here is the description for tonight - LG 55"2 Class LED 1080p 120Hz 3D HDTV

The only two that match the limited description:

55LW5600 - $1365
55LW5500 - $1499

If they take a $1000 off of either of those I am in! Just don't see that happening...

Does this work on gift cards?

Here is my thinking

Normal points=2% RZ points back
3x deal over $1000 is 6% RZ points back

Buy $1000 in amazon GC, get 6%($60/1000) back in RZ points>

EZ GAME?

MSRP is $2,399 on both those TV's according to Amazon. So, $1,399 probably.
