You would think that wouldn't you?
I don't know if the @Gamer coupons are different for some reason, but I have never been able to get a Best Buy employee to honor my Reward Zone coupons or gift certificates when I've pulled them up on my phone.
In their defense every time this has happened they have given me access to a computer to log into my email and print out the coupon and then accept it, with only one exception. But I have never been able to get them to take any coupon digitally.

So I guess I am wondering if you have to download a special app or something for this to work? I always just pulled the link up on my phone through my email or my Best Buy member's page.


Your store needs to freshen up on policies then. MyRewardZone has it detailed more in their terms for certs.

But the coupons still only work for the subscribers and for in-store only?


The coupons itself shouldn't require a GCU member to redeem them.

The digital coupons work in-store only.

To what? The mag requires an account id and the coupons are 1 time use.

I just hope my magazine actually shows up this month. I didn't get a copy last month.

Here we got a small pamphlet with actual coupons in it. (Work at bb)


So are the coupons available to anyone who buys the pamphlet? or are people forced to enroll into he full year in order to activate those coupons?

@Gamer magazine is going entirely digital! Any new or renewing members of Gamers Club Unlocked will be signed up to receive the digital version of @Gamer, which allows customers to receive the magazine quicker and access their copies via iPads, Android powered tablets, or web browser.

You should receive two separate emails per @Gamer edition. One of the emails should inform you that your new edition is ready to be downloaded and the other email should allow you to print off the gaming coupons included in each edition. All current members who receive the print edition of @Gamer will receive the remainder of their 10 magazine subscription and will be signed up for the digital version if they choose to renew their GCU membership.

Bioshock Infinite will be this upcoming month's cover. I also copy and pasted a quote from one of the BB connectors regarding the shift to digital only. Current print subscribers will continue to receive the rest of their subscription in print unless they renew, which will force them to digital immediately.

P.S. Digital subscribers can access the Bioshock Infinite issue right now.

I was reading this thread at work today to figure out what's what, and my @Gamer magazine was in my mailbox waiting for me when I got home :)

While DBZ:K is tempting for $5, I'll have to pass after watching Angry Joe do one of his best reviews I've seen to date:

We can? I don't seem to have access to it. I log-in and it still brings up the Joker Jan/Feb issue.

That soon? And no surprise, there still hasn't been a drop on Prototype. Fucking Best Buy.

Does anybody know how I can actually say the f word on here instead of seeing this turn thing. Fuck

Okay. Is @gamer always like that? Seems odd that the March issue isn't out yet.

As TooPoor said, they did have a price drop. And you can still use the coupon now and get it for $15 new, which is cheaper than you will find it anywhere else. But hey, we all know there's no room for "perspective" around here.

Ironically, the short length, repetitiveness and lack of challenge are all selling points for me because of my massive backlog. :)

Not sure when the current physical subscribers will be forced to transition to the digital version, but yes, you will get sent an email from Best Buy Reward Zone with two links. The top link in the email will be for the digital magazine and the bottom link will be for the digital coupons. Both links will clearly differentiate the content between the magazine vs. the coupons. Note that the coupons specifically state "one-time use" with a unique barcode for the cashier to scan. The coupons will no longer be using a standard SKU for the POS anymore.

To access your digital mag, you will need to know your @Gamer account number. This is not the same as your RZ account number. For physical subscribers, the @Gamer account number is displayed on the mailing label of your most recent physical issue. For digital subscribers, an email with your @Gamer account number will be sent to you upon initial registration. So for physical subscribers, I would make sure that you do not throw away your most recent mag as it's likely you will not be getting the email that includes your @Gamer account number. You will not need to know your @Gamer account number to access your coupons as the link will take you directly to your coupons.

I can see this transition confusing a lot of CAGs so maybe we should include my post in an OP somewhere for the 10% that actually read the OP :)


I agree this is a very good post that should be in the OP. Thanks Donut. This is exactly what I was looking for when reading this thread.

Wow... Just... wow. I cannot believe anybody could mess up a DBZ game like that. I thought to myself "no matter how bad people say this is, it cannot be that bad." I was wrong. I wouldn't take this piece of crap for free. It's Duke Nukem ForNever all over again...
