This was my first every best buy poll. This thread is hidden pretty well. I never check out free stuff.

Is it weird I used a fake facebook account so it wouldn't clutter up my regular account?


I know what you mean...who would guess that threads about free offers would be in the Contests & Free Stuff subforum? BLOWS THE MIND

I just got my second cert from this. Slightly off topic does anyone know if the certs can be applied to a existing order like a pre-order?

There was a new poll up about New Year's Resolutions, but when I tried to cast my vote I got repeated errors. Hopefully it'll be up and working soon.

They also finally gave me points from the polls I had done and not gotten credit for last week.

Wow I just stumbled upon this thread too!

The New Year's resolution poll gave me 25 points immediately.

When is the annual point expiration day? Early February? Do you think I'll be able to accumulate 47 points from this FB app before my 203 points expire? How often do they put a new poll up on the app?



EDIT: Whoa! Turns out no one has to answer any of my questions! I clicked around in the app some more, and was able to get well over the points I needed to be issued another $5 reward certificate! If you haven't already, be sure to take advantage of the "Get points for..." offers on the app's Member's Choice and Ultimate Space tabs!

Where has this thread been all my life? Thanks, OP!

They fixed it. You can go back and do it now. This is great, every 10 days you can a $5 RZ cert.

Best Buy does not reset your points. There is truth behind it, but it has been taken to an extreme. If you have 422 points in your account you will get a $5 certificate and the other 172 points will go away.

Does that still think? Yes, but not as bad as losing all 422 points. Plus there are ways around it.

1. Be Premiere Silver, not really ideal and I understand how this is not a real solution
2. Be Gamers Club Unlocked, seeing how this is CAG and how overall the program has been great due to some useful coupons and the $20 pre-order bonuses this is much more likely.
3. Have a RZ credit card, not ideal either, but an option none-the-less.
4. Call up RZ customer service and explain to them the situation, you should easily get your remaining points back. If that person refuses, call back again and be a bit angry about how the last person treated you. If that person still does not do it, call back one final time and be really ticked off and ask for a supervisor.

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.

Anyone else having issues with filling out the living room? Whenever I select the spot in the room (ie Receivers, Blu-Ray Players, etc) I get the list of choices for that spot, but I'm unable to add them. It's like my 'ADD' button next to the choices are dead.

Interested to see if anyone else has experienced this? Could just be my computer for some reason.

I think I figured out why some people are showing that they got "zero" points when filling out the polls daily.

You might have FB up in another CPU. (For me... my FB is logged in at work PC and home PC) So, make sure you close out one of them before doing the poll.

Another way to reset the page after you do the poll is go into the "My Account" and this should update your BBPoints. I works for me everytime.

Does anyone know how long this promotion is going to be active for? It's kind of hard to believe that considering you can obtain a $5 credit every 5 days, that they would keep this going too long. But I'm not complaining lol.

From the room promotions, looks good for least another month or two.

My guess is they will at a cut the amount from 25 to 10 or they will cap the total amount of points one can get from this.

Until then I will be doing it every day.

How are you getting $5 every 5 days if it is 25pts per day?

It hasn't yet been 24 hours since I took that poll. I believe the change over occurs in another couple of hours. 12:00 A.M. EST perhaps. -- if it is a Monday thru Friday thing.
