Worked for me in Chrome but not Firefox. Placed an order, people on SD are abusing the shit out of it.

SD is classy like that.

Yes... but not until you're received them in the mail.

Yes, they just mail them to you and you scratch the back off and add them at the checkout screen.

I"m not sure how you can go nuts with this.... unless I'm missing something any money you put towards this deal is "Dead Money" until you are mailed the new gifts cards. And unless you pay for Express Shipping you won't get the new gift cards until the promotion ends.

I suppose if you had thousands of dollars in old BB GC stockpiled or wanted to invest thousands of dollars into BB credit at essentially a 20% savings it would be great.

But it's not as simple as recycling credit and getting free gift cards... rinse and repeat... because that won't work

that's different. i already have countless hundereds of dollars in best buy credit from all my trades. i'm not expecting to get the cards in on time to re-order more. in essence, i'm not starting from scratch. already have a ton of gift cards right now that i'm using on these orders. so i'm not losing money up front.

Yeah that's awesome. I have like $400 in GS credit so maybe I'll try to move it over to BB before this promo ends.

I have close to $300 in RZ certs and another $200 as a promo RZ cert from when they cancelled a order on me but I can't use either of those during this promotion.

If there was something I absolutely needed at Best Buy I would invest $300 or $400 in cash/credit toward this promotion but I don't feel like tying up funds when I already have so much in RZ certs.

SD is going nuts so I would get in on this before the promotion gets pulled.

I would guess more than half of CAGs have more BB credit than they know what to do with. Now they/we will have even more.

Thanks OP! Wasn't sure why I was browsing CAG at 12:30am local, but I'm glad I did. Bought 3 sets from all the gc's I had lying around from various trade-ins.

BB has treated me very well over the years, but gaffs like this will put the nail in the coffin much sooner than later.

With all the rampant abuse, I will not participate. Good luck to the rest of you.

I really do not want my account to get flagged but I could make about $280 right now. Not sure it is worth it.

Your account can get flagged if you place to many orders of the same item. Not sure if that pertains to gift cards though.

The deal does not put a limit on # of cards at least. I am sure someone would take advantage of this to get 20% off a TV or something.

Edit: I guess it is more like 16.6% off.

Yeah, reminds me of that $10 instore pickup promo glitch. People made bank on that and would go absolutely ape shit when someone would mention it in the thread. They went even more ape shit when someone blew the whistle over at the BB forums. Haha it was pretty funny, but its all Best Buys fault. I just hope they can last a couple more years since their gaming deals are always great.

Got a description of that one? I think I remember seeing it, but what were people doing?
