Yeah, I had some issue with the mover's coupon tonight buying my Xbox One and it's good to know I'm not alone. The employee helping me out said it was because I was getting a "bundle" deal (since I was buying an extra controller and Xbox Live at a discounted rate) and that the coupon wouldn't apply to it. I originally said forget it and I wouldn't be able to buy it, but then a manager was called over and he applied the coupon to just the console itself and it worked. I lost out on saving an extra $9, but at that point it wasn't worth it. Plus I did manage to get my GCU, so I guess I made out pretty well.

Can you remember what order the manager scanned it in? From reading, I'm unsure if the process worked without a manager's override. I'm going in tomorrow so any info helps, thanks! From my understanding, you wanted the 10% off entire purchase mover's coupon to also apply to the controller+XBL but didn't work but when you scanned it for just the console, it worked? Did you scan the coupon before the console or vice versa.

Well its already nerfed based on what we kept hearing Friday. Whether it gets really killed could depend on what he tells the mod in that private message. Hopefully he doesnt refer best buy to our movers coupon thread lol. Better off he just never responds

I think Best Buy already knew about the movers coupon glitch, it just took them awhile to fix it. The higher than normal usage of the coupon during the Destiny launch probably prompted them to prioritize the fix, which appears to have been applied 2 days ago.

Yeah sounds like the movers coupon fiesta is over, gonna try it out on a game this weekend and will report if it still works.  It hasn't worked online for months on games.

 

You can test it out yourself on bundles online, it used to work a week ago on Console bundles, if it doesn't work online it probably was fixed online and in store.

Wednesday I purchased the Madden 15 bundle, got Destiny free, and had GCU added to my existing account.  She scanned the game first, then the console (which prompted her for the free GCU), then scanned the mover's coupon before totaling the transaction.  It worked without manager approval and came to less than $400 w/tax.  Hopefully other CAG's will have success before the MS promo is over.

The movers coupon is not suppose to stack with GCU but it does in store since it is glitched. They had the exclusions set correctly online. If you don't have GCU, the 10% does work on video games online.

BB probably sold more systems than they expected due to the coupons but with such tight margins on consoles probably right. At least this promos success means BB may do the free/discounted GCU w/pur more often though.

Well I can't validate whether it was patched against hardware but I can vouch that it still works on software in-store Friday.  Picked up an extra Destiny CE in store today and the coupon discount stacked on top of GCU.

The mover`s coupon is NOT "supposed to work on consoles but it obviously does when scanned correctly. Unfortunately, this happened so those depending on it to last when other console bundles drop later this yr maybe disappointed.

Why do some people bring up the good deals to best buys attention? If they read the coupon it says excludes bundles... On Sunday I bought an xbox one, with an extra controller and expected the coupon not to go through with everything but thank goodness it did.
I pmed Ryan and asked him not to reply to the moderator just in case there is any chance the coupon is not nuked already.

Because people are dumbasses. Even more likely, this was some junior detective or CAG/SD do-gooder (we've all seen them here) that was pissed about the coupon and hoped this would ruin it for everyone. That's my guess.

Sorry guys, it was a rash post when I came back from the store, coupled with the fact that my credit card was declined, so my head wasn't on straight.

 

I won't reply to the forum post/

Did you scan the coupon before the console or vice versa.

Originally the employee scanned everything first (console, controller, game, XBL card, GCU card) and then scanned the coupon. I don't know if he hit tender first then tried the coupon though. Either way it wouldn't apply to anything and his reasoning was because the system was counting everything I was buying as part of a bundle (denoted by an asterisk on the register screen). The manager managed to just apply the coupon to the console itself though I'm not sure if he actually scanned the coupon or just gave me 10% so I would buy everything. 

 

If they tell you it won't work try having them just apply it to the console. Good luck!

Its ok. Honest mistake. Abusers of the coupon almost certainly bring more attention to it than a lone BB forum post

I think it's important that if you use the coupon to pick up the visa prepaids, you don't apply your rewards id to the account.

There is no way you actually believe this.  Ryan950 may have effectively killed this coupon for everyone, whats next?  Going after the Gamestop Birthday coupon too?

First rule of using the BB 10% Mover's coupon is you don't talk about using the BB 10% Mover's coupon.

Did they even attempt to scan it or they refused to even try?

Excludes Unilateral Minimum Resale Price (UMRP) products = Regrettably, vendor agreements prevent us from discounting gaming systems like this, which is why your coupon would not have applied to it.

Black lady refused to try it. But I just went to another best buy and at first, the lady at this other location did scan it and nope nothing. She said it doesn't work on bundles. So I said "oh,ok" and then I decided to add a play&charge kit and boom!the lady said "it took off some from the kit And the xbox... I guess I tricked it somehow" I was like "yeaaaah" at the same time I was shaking my wife. I guess it works if you add another item. Hope it works for others. Oh and one more thing... Fuck you ryan950 for stupidly posting the coupon glitch on the best buy forums for the best buy moderators to see.
