Best Buy Mystery Certificate (Check Email)

It would cost me $5 in gas to drive all the way to a best buy (none near me)

So this is pointless...

I am suddenly "not elligible for this reward," unlike every other year before. Must've done something to tick em off, I guess. Not sure what it was since I barely shop there anymore lol

 

While everyone else got the $5 code... they accidentally sent you the $5000 code... thus "not elligible for this reward"

See, they do give out the $5000 code, they just revoke it when someone actually gets it.

As per the usual, nothing for me yet again.  Good to see BB always rewards its loyal and best customers with these promotions.

I'm elite and I got nada. It seems backwards, but I think they give these out to people who don't spend money at BB in hopes for sales?

That is likely true.  But you think they would throw their most loyal and highest spending customers a bone every once in a while.

Pretty sure I got $5 as well; sucks it has to be used before BF, might have to use it to pre-order BFV but IDK. :-k

You’re not alone. I’m Elite as well and I didn’t get the offer.

I got to two different emails. I thought Best Buy had merged my accounts but I guess not all of them. My Elite account got one and an account I haven’t used since July 2016. Both are $5 so I plan buying 2 $10 eShop cards and paying $5 each. I will be it at Best Buy tomorrow to pickup Hitman 2 Gold Edition.

If these work like regular certificates, you won't be able to use them on points cards.

I just used my $5 promo cert to order a $10 eShop card via BB.com website.

Maybe I'm thinking of gift cards then... I know I went to BB a few months ago and they wouldn't let me use something on a PSN $10 card.

 

How did you use this cert online?

When checking out, there is an area for Promo Codes during the Payment section.  Entered the Bar Code Number from the left hand side of the cert (be sure to include the numbers on the ends of the barcode, not just ones underneath).  Once entered, you then click a button to confirm the dollar amount being applied.  After that, checkout as normal.

WooHoo!!! $5!!!  Everything I was thinking about getting is much cheaper on Black Friday so I just picked up Edward Scissorhands blu ray for $1.  Thanks OP for pointing this out.

I would really like at least a $5 gc because I’m planning to buy Tetris effect tomorrow with my GCU. It would have been great to get another $5 off, but I never got the email.

I've gotten them in prior years when I shopped there more. Haven't shopped much this year and got nothing. I'm pretty sure it's just purely random.

Does the certificate stack with GCU? I tried to use it and it would not take $5 off the discounted price after the cashier scanned the barcode.

I rarely go to Best buy anymore, so I'm glad I got this when I did. My wife asked me to pick up an external Hard drive and some SD cards in preparation of some family pictures. So I should be all set until they send me another random $5 next year
