#14054088 ►Best Buy: Get $10 in Rewards or Gift Card w/Pre-Order

Posted by segasaturnsnk on 17 September 2018 - 04:33 PM

no, it isn't normal since you preordered so early.


i have the same situation.


we'll probably have to contact BB on their forums after 20 days to get the $10 lol


Am having the same issue as well, no pending points. Do not see anything related to TR in my rewards history.

I just called, took about 10 minutes, and the lady told me I'll get my points within 24 to 48 hours.  Just checked, got my points just now.  I had mine preordered since Aug. 27th.

As far as the Get $10 promotion goes, this bundle does qualify for the $10 Certificate, as all physical versions of Fallout 4 qualify for the promotion. You should receive the points within 15-20 days of fulfilling your pre-order.


Those who asked about this question, I asked on their forums and got that reply.  Deal is even better now. 

#12718076 amiibo Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by segasaturnsnk on 31 May 2015 - 05:35 PM

This just happened to me:I have been looking for the amiibo meta knight forever. I was able to check at another besbtuy Store via SKU number 1375009 that my local Bestbuy in MI had 15 amiibos available. I went to the store yesterday, 5/30/15 around 410pm and talked to a sales representative, and they told me they were sold out. I then told him I just had talked to another agent from another store and they were supposed to have 15. The agent checks his system and tells me yes, they had 15. He told me: "great, I was looking for one as well". He went to the backroom and talked to another representative about having this particular amiibo in stock and they all seemed excited.

He came back and told me they had none. He had just told me they had 15 and I saw the system myself, 15 were available. He seemed bothered when I confronted him, and he and went back to "look again". I waited 35 minutes and they were just wandering around. I finally decided to give my name and number to them so the could call me once they "find it". They never called me.

I then called around 820pm and asked another representative to check if they had this item via sku. She says"yes, we do sir". I then asked her to put one aside that I was on my way to pick it up. She then puts me on hold. Another person picks up the phone and says he is the manager, and asks what was going on. I said I did not know what happened, I did not ask for the manager and I just asked the previous person to put one amiibo on hold for me. Then he says they were all sold out after I had just talked to them seconds ago and they confirmed they had plenty in stock.

I was so upset that I did not ask this "manager"his name. I am not even sure if he was the manager or another employee trying to keep the amiibo for himself. The way he was talking over the phone was not very professional, so I guess it was not the manager himself.

This morning I decided to go over there again and try my luck. I talked to a different representative and he checked the system via sku and said he had in stock, but was in the backroom. He left, brought a box full of metaknights, and gave me 2 (I left plenty left for others, will open one and keep one sealed). In less than 5 minutes, I was out of the door with the meta knight that was supposed to be "sold out" yesterday.

That sucks right? Employees trying to keep the amiibos for themselves

You should send Best Buy an email about this and which store this was.  I complained one time about having a terrible experience trading in a game and the guy ended up giving me 10 dollar gift card.  Never know, might get something.  It's def. worth the trouble, just a simple email.  Be polite, write professionally, and wheather you get something free or not, at least those pieces of shits will get in trouble.  You don't owe them anything plus you went there two times and had to deal with their crappy services over the phone.

#12585921 Best Buy Trade-in 5.0 - see FAQ in OP!

Posted by segasaturnsnk on 22 March 2015 - 11:23 PM

For the first time ever I was too annoyed to fight for the GCU 10%. I just said screw it. Employee firmly believed she knew what she was talking about, I knew we were going to have to cancel the transaction and start over and get another manager or employee to help.. I let the $5 slip away. Very unlike me. But, I'm just getting really sick of this.

But let it be known to the newcomers: if an employee tells you they can't stack the GCU with the bonus they are full of shit. They can, they just don't know how to and you need another employee to show them the way. I was just too tired to bother.

End of rant.

Send an email to BB man.  There was this one time when one of these dumbasses didn't know how to do trade ins and didn't apply the 10 percent to my game.  I realized, went back, had to wait on line forever, then told the guy, didn't know what to do, called someone in, they didn't know shit too, and had to call someone from the gaming department.  That also took forever and it was the worst thing ever.  I was there at least an hour to just get 10 percent back which didn't happen.  Guy didn't do anything but wrote on a piece of paper without the mananger's approval saying how that my next purchase, I'll get 10 percent, NOT 10 PERCENT OFF but 10 percent lol.  It was a joke and I seriously hate trading games in at BB, their system sucks and going to customer service is the worst thing ever.  I only trade there if I'm desperate and if their trade in deals are better than anyone else's. 

I sent an email to BB, complaining about how all I want is just a 2 dollar gift card for the whole hassle and they end up giving me a 10 dollar gift card.  Doesn't hurt man, tell them your story, and you might get lucky and get yourself a 10 dollar gift card.

Time to move on guys, stay on topic.  Even though I'm a nobody here, I like to sign in and settle things here so we can get back to amiibos and less BS.


Gone, wish my Frys order would update me on date :(

Same here but for my Mega Man.

Calm down dude, WinterAvenger's probably just saying that as a joke. I believe he's a pretty big Fore Emblem Awakening fan since his profile picture used to be Chrom, the main character from that game.

Internet is serious business and come on folks, it's a brand new day, let's start this page fresh with some useful info besides the typical I HATE YOU FOR MAKING INTERNET JOKES!

While you are technically bitching, I agree with every word you just said and feel the same way about the super Mario amiibos. They aren't super important to me, but if I miss Lucina and robin because that info is obscured in a sea of useless posts then I'm gonna flip out.

THIS!  I def. need Lucina and Robin.  I sometimes come to this thread and read the last 2 or 3 pages and scroll through the bullshit until I read something useful lol.

This thread seriously needs a Mod alone because there is so much crap you have to go through to actually find some useful info at times.  Real pain in the ass, just PM each other and curse each other out or go make a youtube video crying about it.  OH, ANOTHER USELESS POST RIGHT HERE!!!!!

Feel bad for those that are spending 50, 60 and 70 bucks on her on ebay.  Saw the bids today, I was there shaking my damn head.  Could of spent that money on 3 of her and a movie to snatch the free shipping.

Just ordered two online, thank you for posting that man.  Thank god I didn't waste my time with the stores, it would of been a fail for me.  Just hope my order doesn't get canceled. 

Funny thing is I was taking a dump, decided to read some posts here, and once I saw someone mention she was online, I wiped my ass super quick, got on the comp, ordered her, couple of pj pants for my mom, and a cd to get the free shipping.  Might have to wipe my ass some more though but thanks man, you made my DAMN DAY!

Just remember, you get that stupid logo on the front paper sleeve saying it's refurbed in Spanish or whatever.  Remember getting the Punch Out and being pissed about it.  For someone who doesn't care, great but for collectors, major turn off.  I ended up trading it in and just getting the game digitally for 10 with tax last week.  It's 20 now digitally for anyone who wants to know.  Wii U.
