Got an order confirmation email and then a cancellation email shortly after for one order, lol.

 

Still have another order that's pending on my credit card, but it doesn't show up on Best Buy's website and I haven't gotten any emails about it.

Got an order confirmation for all 12 cards I ordered. Nothing shipped of course but this is crazy! If these actually ship and are of the value purchased... I just. This is too much  :D/

 

EDIT: Also got a $10 rewards certificate shortly afterwards too.

There are really 3 outcomes:

 

1) Some people get the giftcards (2% outcome)

2) Best Buy cancels and gives out a $5,$10 or even $25 GC (73% outcome)

3) Nobody gets shit. (25% outcome)

 

Be positive, hope for 1 or 2.

Like others here, I'm just crossing my fingers. You never know. If not, no big deal. My order confirmation email came in around 10am, payment validated. Just waiting

People getting cancellations:

1) How many cards did you attempt to buy on your canceled order?

2) Has anyone gotten a $75 card canceled, or only $200 so far?

It won't matter if it's one or ten. They are losing 93% of value. The only possible way you get yours is due to human error on the cancellation. My guess is mine got canceled faster than others because I did it early and w paypal instant so they had my money. bank CC Will take at least a few hours after the system to approve the transfer.

The only thing I'm sad is that my money will take at least 4-5 days to go back into pp AND I guess I will have to transfer it back to my bank account and that takes a few days as well. Oh well at least it wasn't a huge amount.

I'm hoping for number 2. But Best Buy NEVER cancels anything I order, even when I'd prefer the gift card. Destiny, Majora Mask New 3DS, Majora Mask Skull Kid... I forgot what else.

It took Walmart 3-4 days to cancel some things from their fiasco. Very few, if any, of these will go through.

I feel like I'm going to be the last one to get an email. I'm so envious.

My orders are preparing for shipment now. Waiting for my cancel email now.

Although an order shipment email would be much better.

Does anyone's order show item can't be canceled? This would be a pretty clear indicator that the item will ship.

I hope you all used Paypal. If this goes through, they will most likely ban or flag accounts. BB can track giftcards per purchases. Just giving you guys a heads up.

The amount of people that got this, you really think BB is going to ban that many accounts. Yeah, not going to happen.

I don't have a BB account and I was on mobile, so there was no PP option at checkout for me.
