#14051216 Best Buy Ad 9/9-9/15

Posted by mike568 on 12 September 2018 - 05:41 AM

Problem is I don’t have enough money on my card to pre order a bunch of games coming out next year. Wouldn’t it cancel your order or something goes wrong when they do preauthorization charge on your card

Your order would be cancelled if preauthorization fails. Mine expires October 30th so I am thinking about preordering Smash Bros. and Metroid Prime 4. I haven’t played much of Metroid Prime on GameCube. I wish they would rererelease the Prime Trilogy for the Switch. They released it for Wii and Wii U which I never bought. I just a Snes Classic last September, 3DS in December, and Switch in July. I also got my first PS4 on Black Friday. So just back to gaming on the current generation.

The pack dates are 4/1/15 up and 6/30/15 down. Pub 75 Vol 68. The Best Buy coupon expires 8/31/15. I redeemed both of my codes from the same ip address but different email addresses. It can take a couple of minutes to recieve the email. Atleast they activate instanly unlike Lowes Movers coupon that 1-2 days.

Does anyone have an online coupon they would be willing to give away? I'm looking at the nVidia shield tablet and my local BB does not carry them so I have to order online. Please PM if you are willing. Thanks in advance.

#11846241 [PSA]Target $15 off ANY GAME with $1 Preorder sale

Posted by mike568 on 16 June 2014 - 12:24 PM

If you put it that way, i will hold on to them. I had a COD ghosts pre order card a while back when i got tomb raider for 1 dollar. i cant find it. I would have had an extra 5 dollar gift card. damnit. i'm beating up myself for not picking up copies of ghosts for X1. amazon had them for 27. price match and promotion offer + cartwheel would have dropped it down to 5 bucks a copy, maybe less.

Same here I know I had multiple COD Ghost cards from the Tomb Raider deal but I couldn't find them.

#11822825 Best Buy Trade-in 5.0 - see FAQ in OP!

Posted by mike568 on 08 June 2014 - 12:21 AM

Just traded in watch dogs (ps4) for $40 and of course they messed up and didn enter my GCU and afterwards wrote a $4 IOU on an oval shaped geek squad card and said nothing they can do about the points.

Such a hassle getting the most basic services and it just gets worse all the time.

I took the IOU but I told them "when I bring this paper IOU in a month from now everybody better not look at me like I am from Mars."

Don't sign the paper and call for a manager to void that transaction.

#11777251 Watch Dogs Pre Order and Get Collectors Edition Guide for $10.99 with GCU

Posted by mike568 on 21 May 2014 - 05:48 PM

I am not GCU and the game guide showed up for $10.99. I had to call Best Buy and have them create new order for it at the $10.99 price since I already had Watch Dogs locked in at way cheaper price from a previous promotion that Best Buy had.

Thank you for the information. I bought almost all from the list today for a penny each.

I just went to Best Buy and GTA 5 CE rung up for full price price. Can you post a picture or scan of your receipt marking out unique information.

Thank you for the information, if I go into the store there will be no repeat checks right?

You can put just $5.00 down then pay it off when pick it up. You have pick it up at the same location you preorder at.

Does Bestbuy still do repeated charging on your bank if you preorder with them on their website? Just want to know if I should go in the store to do this or not.

Best Buy still does repeat checks to make sure you have the money in the account. You could pay at bestbuy.com with PayPal or a gift card to avoid Best Buy from checking your bank accounts once a week.

#11274752 Best Buy - Select Black Friday Items Available Now for Elite Members

Posted by mike568 on 24 November 2013 - 11:36 AM

Probably because they haven't updated the myrz site. I must not have opt-in to emails because I never get anything from them.

where do you see upcoming events?

Finally bought a Vita. Went with the one with the 8GB card. Tried to go through the Discover card site to earn the cashback bonus, but the damn site when down for maintenance right when the sale started.

I'm thinking I might cancel and re-order when the site is back up, that is, if the 3G bundle is still in stock. I used a $15 BB gift card though.

Anyone know how long it takes for a gift card to be refunded after cancelling an order? I'd hate to cancel, then have to wait forever for my refund, only for the thing to go out of stock.

It 5-10 minutes to get refund back to your gift card when you cancel an order. Reward Zone Certificates take 3 or 4 days.

-Walk in
-No employee near the video game aisle (shocker)
-Walk to the phone section and find someone
-He gets me Paper Mario: SS
-I have the 70% off coupon + $5 certificate I want to use
-70% coupon somehow duplicates the price, manager gets called, etc
-Wait there for 25 minutes
-They decide to manually override it and it comes out to $12.96
-Can't use MY certificate because THEY had a glitch

What the Fuck? I wait there for nearly half an hour and I can't use my certificate because of YOUR glitch? Where can I call and complain?

They should have allowed you to use your $5 RZ Certificate since your product price before tax was over $5. RZ Certificate can be used with any offer including pricing errors. I would called 1888 BestBuy before leaving the store.
