No real exploit. You'd earn a $5 certificate for every $30 spent.

This seems like a good time to pick up some PC parts possibly... Anyone know of any other good deals to stack with this?

Wouldn't it be $50? $50 x 5=250 =5 Gift cert or did they change it to 150 points?

Yeah, just bring the box with you. Just let them know that you want to change the way you paid for your system. They'll just have to put that the item isn't open. Then they can cash you out on the next transaction.

I was thinking about doing this as well. I bought a PS4 and Ghosts. I know you don't get points for using a gift card, you only get points for getting the gift card. I spent $250 from a gift card, and put the rest on my card. Sorry for rambling, I'm exhausted at the moment.

I thought it was 150 for game related items (as long as you've activated gamers club) and 250 for any other stuff. I was just assuming people would be buying gaming stuff.

According to the deal guidelines this doesnt stack with other point promo's, in other words I dont think it would stack with the double points for GCU and really hard to verfiy that I suppose without asking on the forums.

It used to be spend $150 on games get $10 but it hasn't been that way for a long long time.

Last two best buy in store special events I went to they were offering double points. I did not get quadruple points on the games I bought but I did get triple. So perhaps we get six times points on games if in gamers club. Regardless. ..great promo for big purchases especially if open box.

So the most real exploit would be just buying those Visa Prepaid card that enuf always spouts about. (If they work. Technically they aren't the gift card that BBY would refer to.)

So I already get 4 points a purchase on video game stuff with the Best Buy CC. So with this, damn. 1 base point plus 1.5 bonus points from the CC, plus 1 bonus point for GCU on video games and a 0.5 point for being elite plus. That's 4 points a purchase, or 8% back. With an extra 4 point that would be 8 points a purchse, or 16% back. Or 14% back on non-video game items. Any confirmation on the exact nature of the points stacking?

5x points? I have a $150 game purchase I earned 600 points on. That is 4x points. Does 5x mean I'd get 750 points or will the other bonuses stack?

I think it's:

150 - purchase
150 - gamers club
225 - bby credit card
37.5 - elite
37.5 - elite plus

My guess is on a $150 purchase you'd get:

 

150 - purchase (1x)

600 - 5x purchse bonus (4x)
150 - gamers club
225 - bby credit card
37.5 - elite
37.5 - elite plus

 

$68 back on a PS4 or $80 back on a XB1 would be sweet!  Finally  more than the tax!!!!
