Anyone know if I buy something that comes out to say $4.75 and use a $5 cert if it'll work online?

I know in store, the certs error if you buy less than the total, but the employees at my local store just override them by making $4.99 stuff ring up at $5. (Which is awesome, since it also stops the tax)


Unfortunately, it won't work. When I tried to order something that was $9.99 with a $10 certificate, it said that the total before tax and shipping must exceed the value of the certificate. I had to find something cheap to add to my order (I got a Dunlop glass guitar slide for $3) in order for it to work.

Ok, thanks. I sort of figured this. Guess I wait and go to the store.

In Best Buy stores you can find Amazon Kindle Gift Cards for either 25 or 50. They are usually in the computer department. Just buy them like anything else then scratch off the back. Go to Amazon and enter the code as a gift card code. It will add the amount to your account then you can choose to use it anytime on your Amazon order. They work for almost everything on Amazon, not just Kindle.

I always buy these cards before I order from Amazon. That way I get Reward Zone points but I can get better prices from Amazon. You only get points when you buy the cards with money though, not with Reward Zone certificates.

^That;s a good idea, I really wish there were a convenient BB for me to do this at. Closest BB is an hour from me.

Just a heads-up, but I don't know if it's a new thing or if my BB just started... You don't need to print out or bring in your RZ certs. They can look them up and apply them to your purchase after they scan your RZ card at the register. When I went yesterday, I forgot to print mine out and was having trouble with the app, and the cashier said that it's not needed. He scanned my RZ card and applied the cert to my purchase. Pretty nifty knowing that I don't have to waste paper and ink any more.

And the new poll's up.

If I want to buy amazon cards with the points then is it ok if I hand them a 20 Point coupon and a 5 point coupon?

How many points have you gotten in total since this promo began? Maybe some people have reached a certain limit and that's why they're getting zero points.

That has nothing to do with it. Half the time it says I get 0 points bit its still credited to my account.

I have no problem remembering to do this on weekdays for whatever reason, but on Saturdays and Sundays I usually forget. I just missed Sunday's poll by like an hour. Gah.

Based on when I tried to do it no, I asked to put $5 down on a game and use a $5 certificate. The employee tried but it did not take the $5 off. You can use it when you pick the game up of course though.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Thanks for the reply! I actually just did a mock preorder to see how far I could get and you could actually apply the reward zone certificates to the pre-order. I did this online though. Figure I'd stack as many RZ certificates to pay off a couple of games.
