so for the people who got order completed when did you guys order late last night or early morning? I wonder if it has anything to do if you got in on this early vs. later. has anyone who ordered more then one late today get there order shipped?


I got my shipping confirmations for my orders. I placed it right when the promo started.

I placed 5 orders in the afternoon right before heading out. I had no idea about this supposed 5 order limit (had enough for 5 on my pitch card). Also read reports of cancellations while I did my orders.

I received cancellation emails for the last two of my orders, a bit over 10 hours of them being placed. The first three orders are still in "process" whatever that means...

I placed my 11 orders in the early morning hours--the first five when the deal launched, the other six about three hours later, around 4am EST.

I ordered 5. 4 of them were placed in the first hour or so that this went live and they shipped. The last one was placed around 900 am pst and was paid for with a gc. That was is still in processing but it doesn't show up in my order history on my account. Yet it shows up when I do a check status using the order number, my phone number and last name. Also, the last one was the only one I used my account with since I checked out as a guest on the first four orders with different emails.

They need people like me if they want to stay in business. I spend nearly 25 percent of my income at BB.

hmmm...since giftcards do not expire, why not say... buy 50 of these and get your next-gen console paid for by Best Buy?

plus for everyone else, you'll automatically level up and be the holy grail 'Silver' premiere customer?

you're welcome. ;)

All of my orders have now shipped. Four show in transit with an estimated delivery on Friday and the other order barely shipped today.

I got all my orders today. The funny thing is I think they lose more sending each dam GC in a separate 2 day air envelope than on the promo itself. Consolidate that shit into one package.

People may want to check there GCs when received. People on SD are reporting receiving non activated ones.

I got my gift cards today and wasn't able to check the balance on either of then. Does that mean they're not activated?

Yeah, I just checked all 22 of my GCs that arrived today (11 of each kind) and they're all good. That's a relief. Sorry to hear about those who received defunct cards.

Been trying to resolve my issue with my unactivated gift cards. Called customer service and they couldn't do it over the phone citing computer issues. They told me to go to a store where they assured me they could activate them. The store ended up not being able to help. They called their help desk and told me that there is a known company wide issue with gift card activations and they were slowly rolling out activations. So I guess I'm just supposed to wait and they'll magically be activated.

Edit: as of this morning, my cards have been magically activated. I hope the same for others with unactivated cards.

Got my cards late yesterday and they were activated. Sucks that they could even screw up on gift cards.

My $70 in Amex credit showed up today for making 4 orders. Nice though I hope my BB GCs are activated as I would hate having to deal with unactivated cards.

Someone refresh my memory. I don't remember if it was game related or not, nor what promotion it was but...does anybody remember BB sending out $100?? GCs instead of $XX GCs or something like that? BB sent out letters saying the original GCs would be voided (they never were) and they were sending out GCs for the correct amount. Maybe it was game trade-ins.

received one set yesterday and two more today. I had 2 of my 5 orders canceled. Might try to complain about the cancellations after the holidays as the limit was supposedly 5 and I didn't go over.

I haven't had time to check balances.

Received all of my GCs and all of them are activated. Certainly happy and will probably put it towards an ipad or a laptop. Not sure yet.
