In Topic: YMMV new Best Buy Mystery Rewards Certificate

06 November 2019 - 12:32 AM

For the first time in a long time I didn’t get one of these coupons. My main Best Buy also closed for good last Saturday and I got no official notice.[emoji24]

I called corporate today and Corie Berry there new CEO is personally issuing a $500 reward certificate for me and upgrading my account from Elite status to Elite Plus for free. [emoji12]

You should also take note of how close you are to Elite or Elite Plus before they "hide it" to keep the site stable for the holidays. :roll:

Thanks for the reminder. I am only $39 short of making Elite status again. Sadly the Best Buy close to my jobs closed Saturday. [emoji24] I went to it on Saturday to say good bye and to what was left of the store. That Best Buy was my go to Best Buy when I was a kid. There are 2 other close Best Buy’s but I normally don’t go to that side of the city but once a week when I go to my main AMC so shipping will be main shopping method versus in store pickup. I used to swing by Best Buy on my way home from work and pick up my online order now I won’t have time to. I might have to have packages delivered to work again so I don’t have to go to my apartments office during their business hours which is when I am normally at work or getting ready for work.

In Topic: Target Cartwheel Deals September 22nd - 28th: R.I.P. Cartwheel

23 September 2019 - 02:32 AM

This was a bad month for deals for me: My Best Buy GCU finally expired, and now Cartwheel is gone.

Don’t forget GameStop maybe closing sooner rather than later.

No its not you! The very first experience i had with GS has been similar since. It was about 15-20 yrs ago. I had recently gotten my 1st console and put a few games on my Xmas list and ended up with a duplicate game. My Gma saidd she'd purchased the game new at GS. So the day after Xmas i took the game still in shrinkwrap (course now a days i think they still open new games) to my local GS and told them the situation. I asked to simply swap the game for another newer AAA game. I didn't ask for cash or for a more expensive game like a collectors edition. The guy asked if i had a receipt (this was at a time before any stores had return policies or offered gift receipts) and i explained i did not because i didn't want to hurt my Gma's feeling that she'd got me a dup gift plus who knows if she still had receipt. So the guy tells me that the ONLY option is to break the seal on the brand new $60 game and open it, then he could give me $9 of in store credit as a used game. I left with my new game and took it to Walmart which gave me cash (ah those were the days!). So you can only imagine the times i tried to get a penny guide (i think i walked out with 1 soft cover because my wife screamed it was on the shelf so they had to sell it). I hate GS!


My first experience with GS as adult they tried to sell me an open PS3 game as new when it already opened and who knows if someone scratched it or took a code. I grabbed an ad and said f*** that. I went to Walmart in the same shopping and priced matched GS price. I work retail myself so I understand theft issues. GS could ask their supplier for cardboard or plastic pictures of the game case. Then keep the sealed copies of the game at the counter or in the back.

Even after my bank releasing the fraud stuff, the transactions still wouldn't go through on any card. My guess is that RB has some fraud system in place that flags cards for some period of time.


Call your bank and say you “lost” your card so you get a new card number. If I report my Discover card “lost” by 4pm I can have new card with new account number in my hands by 8am via FedEx Overnight morning delivery for free. While I am on the phone with them my Samsung Pay on my phone and Gear S3 and Apple Pay on my iPad and iPhone SE will update with the new account number so I can shop like before except no online transactions on websites that don’t support Apple Pay. Also you can’t use Samsung Pay at Redbox since that requires reoccurring billing which Samsung Pay doesn’t do.
