Also got the email and got $5 off as well. Cool beans since I hadn't got one in a while.

I'm an idiot, I had my e-mail communication preferences disabled on Best Buy. Anyone have a link to try for the certificate?

Go to a physical store, give them your member account number and ask them if they can check if there are any certificates in your account.

Got myself $10 from the Elite member mystery certificate.

 

That and already had a $5 and another $10 cert.

 

Used them all on Pokemon Sword which was discounted to $40.

Went to two BestBuys yesterday. Went to look for a microSD card then looked around to use my $5 certificate on something cheap. Their $9.99 bargain movie bins are gone. Like literally I went to the second store and their entire movie shelves were gone and what was left was just random movies and tv shows that I didn't care for. And anything worth buying has either been removed from shelves/store or double/triple the price online and you can't price match because the item/version numbers don't match. Fuck are they expensive. After that i was literally looking for anything to buy and I find some plastic wiring for airpods so that you don't lose em that I thought would be useful and it was 20 bucks. Seriously? 20 bucks for that?! like I bet they didn't even cost 50 cents to make and they're charging 20 bucks! At this point I'll just let the coupon expire. I can't even give it to somebody else because it's tied to my account. Or maybe I'll just stop by and buy a soda with it.

Maybe get some batteries.  Always need batteries for something.

 

I was mad when the music section disappeared, when the game and movie sections are gone I have no reason to set foot in a Best Buy except every few years when I need a computer or a TV.

Physical media is almost done in terms of being at retail, man.

Where you been?

I went to a store looking for Wasteland 2 NSW. The Switch section was way smaller than the PS4/XB1 sections. I didn’t find Wasteland 2 or any signage for it. As I was leaving, I noticed that most of the Switch games were locked up behind the registers. I kind of snuck back there and found Wasteland 2 among a bunch of other games. It rang up at $9.49. I got it for $4.49+tax after $5 cert.

So today was the last day to use my 5 dollar certificate, I had already decided to buy a copy of the witch on blu-ray because eh Halloween right? it was also $4.99 so I thought perfect item to buy. I go to the bestbuy and because I always go straight to the ps4 games I end up finding Call of Cuthulu on clearance for $9.49. Snatched the last copy. Only paid $4.49 + tax.

Yeah I don't know why they keep all those games locked up behind either the registers, or even worse in some cases, sometimes hidden and totally out of sight behind the customer service desk. Having visited multiple Best Buys and seen half-bare shelves that are consistently poorly stocked there is no way to physically verify what games they actually have without having to jump through hoops. There's also been plenty of times that I've seen other people looking for a particular game, especially a first-party or big AAA one, and then when they can't find it on the shelf probably walking out assuming that they are out of stock (which is often not the case). It's really stupid how Best Buy handles this.
