I wonder if it is like redbox, tied to the card number. Unless it works on pre-paid master cards.

I wish BestBuy used NFC payments, the only Mastercard I have is the virtual one Google Wallet uses. :(

I'll be in front of Best Buy at 10am to try it out, apparently some stores open at 9...but not mine.

Hmm..... if this works, we could pick up some skylanders giants, and a BT keyboard and mouse I was eyeing up.

Or maybe they have some CE editions in stock worth picking up?

To bad the Best Buy cc isn't a mastercard, so you could stack the reward credits.

I got that e-mail but didn't have a link to print out the coupon, could it be just for best buy mastercard users?

Did anyone else notice under exclusions that the 90" Sharp TV does not qualify? You'd think they wouldn't mind giving you an extra $50 off a $9,000 TV. It is already on sale for $1,000 off, so maybe that's why.

Nah, it says "Save $50 when You Spend $100 in-store
and pay with any MasterCard®1"

If this isn't a unique coupon then I can see this getting extremely out of hand.

I do not see anywhere that it excludes preorders...Can you even pay in full for preorders at store? If so, this is golden!

Agreed. It seems almost too good. Who will be the first brave soul?

I just closed my bank account that used mastercard...

I want a 3ds XL, so I would have bought a Bestbuy giftcard for 100 and then immediately used it on the XL. Maybe I can have a friend or parent used their card and I just give them the cash.

This just doesn't make much sense. Unless MC is offering incentives for BB to take MC payments, this just...I don't know. How could this not end up being a disaster for them?

If this worked on pre-orders by paying the full amount up front, you could pre-order 12 of the “Victory can be pre-ordered” games for about $770 after tax. Minus the $50 off for each pair and divide that by 12 and it’s about $40/game, plus your $20 reward.

Any chance I could preorder dead space 3 and crisis 3 in full and pay 70 with 40 in certs?

Secret going-out-of-business sale? It may be a secret to them too...

From what I've been told in store, the new system for preorders has been updated and allows you to pay in full!

That is my hope! Although I'm going to go with MGR instead of Dead Space. I won't be able to try it until tomorrow at the earliest.

I pre-paid all my in-store pre-orders last year. I hate trying to deal with that mess at midnight releases. So I don't know what needed updated.

My stores never let me do that. It was always the $5 max, return the PO then apply it to the full price when checking out on release. They had 2 SKUs for 1 item. They updated it to where it's only 1 now and lets you pay in full. You might have been the testers for the new system? I'm not sure.

But on topic, anyone try this out yet?

Can't wait to hear the reports on gift cards. If it works, Best Buy out of business by the end of year from this one week deal! ;D
