He had to also scan your rewards card, that is why it is linked.  Coupon email is just a barcode anybody can use.

since he said he didn't have to produce nothing im thinking the cashier probably asked him for his phone number and that is what linked it

I'm willing to give someone $10 in amazon credit for a coupon. PM me if you are down, I'd like to get on board but I'm not chancing it on the 10th.

Someone scanned the coupon and gave me it and i printed it and redeemed it in stores no problem. You just give them your account info and they scan the coupon and done. Just make sure they follow the instructions on the coupon.

No he didn't. I was even getting my RZ card out of my wallet and asked him I he needed it and he said no.

Maybe he saw your email address on the coupon and looked it up that way.

That may be a possibility. I'm in there a lot and see the same people often for in-store pick up purchases, but I can't imagine any of them remember my account number or anything off the top of their head

Probably not. You could ask bestbuy cs for a newer coupon, but as far as I know the latest ones expire tomorrow. You're probably out of luck.

If you call Best Buy customer service, ask for the digital downloads department, then ask them if they can check to see if you're eligible for unlocked 2 year/$30 promo e-mail they'll send you a new coupon with the 2/10 expiration date. 

 

I had originally received a coupon with the 12/31 expiration date.  I called them today and they instantly sent me a new coupon.  The person even stayed on the phone with me to make sure I received the e-mail (which is good, because I didn't get it the first time he tried).

Weird : I redeemed $30 code, verified as unlocked by 3 reps, and then last rep said im not

Fellas,

 

Ive heard some werid crap happeniing with their gamers club unlocked $30/2 year renewal promotion.

 

heres my story: after 4 hours, i finally got it redeemed. i verified i was unlocked with 3 different reps because each time i tried to make an order i got disconnected, and each department was clueless as to what the next one was to do.

 

so i make my order, buy a new game, got 20% off total, but then i got told im not unlocked.

 

whats up here?

 

I was verified by 3 different reps, and finally, when i make an order with the 20% off benefit, which obviously checked out, im told im not actually unlocked....?????

 

now i asked the guy who assured me i was definitely unlocked that there is a check by name showing that i am unlocked, and i asked him if theresa way i can see it or verify it, and he said there isnt, but he assured me i am, there is a check showing i am unlocked on my acccount, and that the price would reflect it, which it did.

 

yet somehow, i was told by someone else im not unlocked.

 

HOW DO YOU VERIFY THAT YOU ARE UNLOCKED!!!!!!! lol??????? manic episodes and inconsistent information are incongruous

 

Please share any info pertinent.

 

Mike seems to be AFK, but I got my code and did the membership, made an order w/20% off, so i dont know why the rep said that.

 

Thanks guys

Weird... 

Go to mybestbuy.com

Login

Look in the upper right under your name and account #.  It will show your elite/elite plus status, if applicable, and below it, your gamers club status.  If it doesn't show Gamers Club Unlocked, then you're not.

Instead of risking using the coupon tomorrow, I decided to drive half an hour to my nearest Best Buy and used my $30/2 year coupon. The cashier scanned my Rewards card and then the coupon...only it zero'd out. She must've pressed the total button before selecting the membership(?) and it spit out a receipt saying the coupon was removed. When she tried to ring up the transaction again, it said the coupon had already been activated. She called for assistance and, luckily, the next guy that helped us out knew how to fix it. He voided the previous receipt and ran the transaction again but this time, adding the GCU item to the transaction and voila, $30. This will easily pay for itself come March (Titanfall, Diablo III, FFX/X-2 HD, Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends!) and Titanfall has a $10 preorder rewards certificate promo too!

I wouldn't mind trying out a $30 coupon tomorrow if someone's not going to use theirs.

Think I might sign up for this. The downside is my closest BB is about 35 minutes away. So I would probably do most of my shopping online. How do preordered work on Bestbuy.com? If I preorder a game, will I receive it the day it's released? Or will it ship the day it's released?

I'm not quite convinced yet, but I think this was BB's way to get customers to limit their own purchase quantities. Instead of paying employees to monitor that stuff, they make their customers pay to monitor themselves. It seems the weird sale/clearance prices came with the new GCU. Stacked with the 20% discount, it brings games to a price at which they would have wanted to sell/clearance the game anyway. But customers can only purchase a qty of 3, lest they get banned.

All they need to do is write a loop into the program that stops the discount after 3 of the same name, but they don't want to do that.

Exactly, but why do that when they can make us pay for it?
