I also got the freebie $5 reward zone certificate. Planning on getting a few games on Tuesday so definitely will be using it. First time I've gotten something like that. Usually always miss out when others get them.

WTF? I did the two polls and the gym thing. Before I had 200-something and now I have 37. Has this happened to anyone else?

Me twice.... sucks...

I only got 25 pts for doing the Gym yesterday. I wonder why they give different point values to people for doing the same thing?

Well, I'm thinking the people who got "2" Ultimate Spaces probably just missed the previous one so 2 were available to them. Same with the daily poll, I think they change it out at 11pm EST or so, so it's possible someone did yesterday's poll, then the new one after 11pm and got "2".

As far as the points goes, it looks like this is what they are settling in on:

Member's Choice (25 points)
Ultimate Space (25 points)
Daily Poll (10 points)

If Member's Choice resets weekly, it would net 95 points per week and a bonus 25 when the Ultimate Space comes up. If people are getting different points then that I have no explanation other than it's a mistake on Best Buy's part, which considering Best Buy's track record, is highly likely.

I just think it is awesome that Bestbuy now matches online in their Low Price Guarantee, this should make it easy to get great prices on any game out there as well as the ability to use my RZ certs on them. It does suck that the Return/Exchange policy changed to 15 days for normal customers. If you are Premier Silver though it is still 60 days for a return and 15 for price match, but if you don't return and repurchase at that point you must be stupid.

Mine finally showed up. It was posted like you but I couldn't find the actual cert anywhere. It had to have been within the last 3-4 hours that it showed up.

Ah ok. Well, I ended up calling back earlier and the woman just ended up giving me 250 points as customer satisfaction. Guess I get 10$ instead then lol.

Same here. Seems like they made it to where you only get 10 points if you are the most successful poll answer. Guess we need to start sharing that info here.

Hey how many points does this members choice thing give? I'm guessing 10 but just checking before I do it.

Zoombucks - http://www.zoombucks...f=Puppet-Master
InstaGC - http://www.instagc.com/59976 - Like this one since you can get 2% back from most Amazon purchases

I believe it was 25 when I took the current Member's Choice poll. It's definitely NOT 10 like the daily polls.

Not entirely sure what the hell happened in my account, but I woke up with 3 5$ reward certificates. One expires this month so it must be the bonus, no idea where the other 2 came from

Looks like you get 10 points for successful answer and then 10 additional for answering anyways. Just showed 0 yesterday but got it the 10 anyways.

Today's successful poll answer is "Yes. It's Fantastic!"

MYRZ is glitching or something. I redeemed 500 this morning for my second $10 cert, which I already spent, and my account is now showing another 490 points. It won't let me redeem, it just keeps giving me an error, so I'm sure it's just a hiccup or something...

Weird, I had my points back too, but it actually let me redeem and gave me a new coupon. Both are expiring in September

I was having a similar issue earlier today. I tried to redeem but it wouldn't let me. I just left it for later on. When I logged into the account, I saw the new $5 cert. in my account (for today) although my balance hadn't been reduced.

It fixed itself later on.

Yes, just let the cashier know you have a reward cert available and that you want to apply it to your order. No need to print of certs anymore.

Does that mean we'll only have to wait 15-20 days instead of 35 for reward zone points to post now? I assumed the 30 day return was part of the reason why

Can litepink put something in the OP about the "You got 0 points" error? It seems like somebody goes Chicken Little on each page over it. I know few people will bother to read the OP, but at least we can point them to it when the error occurs.

I think BestBuy runs out of polls and uses old ones. It shows I already took today's poll.
