I’ve gotten an email like that in the past, but they were actually just informing me of the value of reward points I had earned. No bonus for me. If you actually did get 500 bonus reward points, lucky you.

Nothing, but I did just use one of those promo 10% coupons that saved me $3 so at least I got that much.

I used to get these also.  I no longer do since I started shopping there more.  You are very lucky, my friend.

These coupons are historically known to reward people who don't shop there. ;)

Only thing I found was this in an email (subject Let us tackle your tech issues–get Total Tech Support.) , probably not related:

I got one. I'm close to the 5 dollar redemption so this is independent of that (given what someone said above.)

You guys need to stop posting a new thread every time you get a personalized offer. I get them from time to time as do others. If every person made a thread every time they got one, that's all the front page of CAG would consist of.

Heh. Idk about that. I spend a small fortune at BB, and not just video games. I get these. 

 

I've also noticed that when I look at a high-ticket item, like a fridge, but don't buy it, that BB sends me a "JUST FOR YOU SAVE 10% OFF ANY SINGLE ITEM" coupon shortly after. 

 

That was a poorly worded sentence, but you get the idea.

I always spend a lot there too and I never get these emails.  I thought it was because I had emails turned off in my marketing preferences but even after I turned them back on, I got tons of spam from Best Buy each day, but still no offers.  Said "fuck it" after several months and turned the marketing emails off again.

I had elite status for the past year which I realize lapsed at some point recently but I never really received any of these freebies they would give out periodically. I used to spend a ton there last year with all the video game trading and buying. I do tend to turn off marketing emails every now and then when it starts to get super annoying

Yeah I am pretty sure they send them out at random. I didn't get one this time, but I have gotten them in the past.

I got an email a couple weeks back saying I would get a $10 certificate if I spend $25 or more before the end of June, but I still need to buy something.

Didn't get the $10 code, but a family member who has a My Best account and hasn't shopped there in forever just gave me her $5 code that expires 6/29 that was received today in an email titled "Handpicked offer direct to your inbox".
