since this got bumped, and for historical purposes, I'll share my GCU story. I got my GCU membership online and it never worked... well, it worked ONLY on the initial purchase. I called best buy, spoke to managers for days, even went into a brick and mortar store (unless if that store was made out of wood), and nobody could get it to work. They gave me $30 in best buy money and told me to buy another membership. That still didn't work... I ended up somehow buying the membership AGAIN but with cash. That time, the membership stuck to my account. They never refunded me for the second cash purchase, so I had 4 years with everything considered stacked on my account. I was upset, but whatever.
My membership was suppose to end the last day of Feb 2021, 1 day before the official end of the program... I got an e-mail saying that I'll get a refund for each membership. A month or so later, a nice $60 check from BBY showed up in my mailbox . I was happy.
