Hmmm since I'm already a member and good to go for a while I think I'll hang off for a minute to see if the "number of years" issue gets resolved before signing up.

Good find htz. It would be ludicrous for them to do so. 20% alone will give them all my day 1 purchases for the next two years if that coupon comes through.

If this is true, no one will sign up for it. $60 a year to save 20% in the long run may add-up if you buy new, $12 off each game, so 5 games and the year is paid off. But most consumers will see it as $60 on an unknown and rather spend the $15 at Gamestop and get very similar perks. This is 4 times the price for IMO very little benefit.

 

If you a buy a LOT of new games this is an INCREDIBLE deal.  All you need to do is buy 5 new games per year at full price, and the program pays for itself.  Everything after that is crazy savings.  I don't know about you guys, but I buy, at minimum about 20 brand new games per year.  Seriously considering this now.

Just went and renewed for $30 for 2 years with coupon from email. Store employees had no clue what i was handing them or what it was had to get manager who didn't know what this new program was. They called into bb corporate i guesa but was taken care of over phone

Hrm, my sub just expired on Oct 28th so I am really hoping the renewal coupon shows up before PS4 launch! (Although I'm still going to try Target for my game purchase needs..)

got the $30 coupon.  went to my BB to redeem it and low and behold it didn't work.  about 5 different people tried to scan it and they kept getting an 'already redeemed' error (so they tell me).  

 

*sigh*  nothing comes easy for me when it comes to doing ANYTHING at my B&M BB.  they concluded that it must not work until 11/10 (of course that's wrong).  

 

guess i'll have to call customer service or something..... :headache:

Not bad....with my tax rate of 7.6x my savings per game is about 11.50...plus all the other benefits. I have been putting together my action plan on how best to take advantage of these deals. I have some BBY credit but I was really saving it for a laptop for school/business. DR3 is the only launch game I plan on getting for X1. I have three preorders at Gamestop (paying w/credit) and really  don't want to crush any rep, but this GCU has so much potential and includes the 3 PS4 games I have preordered at GS. On my way to BBY now to check mystery rzw and will report back when I figure this out...at least BBY is giving me good problems!

Did you do the following, in this order?

1. Have the employee look up your phone number or scan your membership card (if you have one).

2. Have the employee scan the $30 coupon.

3. Ask the employee to enter the SKU for GCU (located on the coupon, 7 digits and starts with a "3", IIRC).

4. Wait for the employee to total out the transaction.

If you didn't do those things, in that order, that would explain your difficulty.

Yeah, i'm pretty sure they tried that. They followed the directions from the coupon.  They even tracked down a card to scan just in case it had a different SKU (it was the same as on the coupon).  Kept saying "already redeemed" according to them.  

 

Don't worry, I'm sure it will work for everyone else just fine.  I just have the worst luck ever with BB.  Maybe I'll try a another store tomorrow....

 

Thanks though

From the BBY forum page, it looks like those that have not received it via email is because they have deactivated the preference to receive emails,  Anyone know where the option on the mybby site is to change that?

I can't find it.

Yeah sounds like BS. I couldn't find any such option. I get all types of emails from them - deal of the day, GCU issue/coupons, you left your cart full, etc.

Can't be true since I also have several emails from mybestbuyinfo@emailinfo.bestbuy.com including this one "Your free $5 bonus reward certificate"

Hmm.. so since many of us preordered our PS4s online when preorders were made available, does this mean we do NOT get the double reward zone points? Didn't we get double with the old premium membership?

I'm definitely going after work to re-up this shit, the dude that couldn't because his was already "redeemed" has me scared. I just want to get this over with.

It's for everything. I tried it on a 2.99 game and it came up 2.39.

 

Titanfall collector's edition drops from 250 to 200, but has a cart error. Not sure what that's about.
