That's what makes them f-ing morons.
but that doesn't mean the original coupon was incorrect. It just means it was ill-conceived.

Which is, of course, par for the course at BB.

Their policy is not only accept "physical" (i.e. non-home printed) comp. coupons...so you better hope your luck with buying GC's transfers to Staples. Cool
Hmm, you're probably right. You think I'll fair better if I have the link from BB's website preloaded on my phone?

Well it could have been incorrect and someone screwed up. But either way: the wrong one went out or they didn't understand what would happen so they backtracked, they are still idiots. How long have they been in this business and they still don't know what they are doing. How could you be so stupid to put that coupon out and not know the ramifications? Anyone with common sense would tell you what would happen.

It was obvious to most of us that you had to get in good and early to partake in this deal--and we were right.
Excuse me? The fact that the CP went thru in the morning proves that it was legit. It was obviously even programmed into the registers so for you to say that I think it should be a mistake "in general" is idiotic.

Quote from MOkoFOko View Post :
Believing that retailers are going to honor their promotions and not adjust them as they see fit--those are unrealistic expectations. That's a personal problem right there--not an issue with this generation of young folk.

Excuse me? "See Fit". Where the hell do you think "see fit" is legal under contract and advertising law? I'll give you a hint. It's not.

Doubt that will help much...and if they call to confirm with BB, they will state the coupon was only valid yesterday.

Supposedly (like with a select few getting BB to accept the coupon on giftcards)...members have been able to get "magical" requests/coupons/personal favors approved at select Staples stores. Realistically..I would set your sights low.

My God you're naive

No one in the history of marketing has ever made that many mistakes in one SINGLE CP.

just Duh, they didn't want to honor it.
It could have been a preliminary draft copy and someone posted the wrong one.

you really believe they hired somone in their corporation to draft coupons that cost them millions of dollars?

my god
Ok, I think that me saying this will make you feel better: OH MY GOD, they have baited us in their stores and then switched the coupon terms, how could they!

I personally don't know much about programming, but I do have a common sense. There must be a template where they state the items in their terms which BBY prolly loses money on first. This template is applied to all dollars off coupons. Then, once in a while, they will use another template with additional restrictions for items that are say on sale for that particular week, and the additional restrictions make sure that BBY does not go in the red by selling those items. This whole process is initialized by certain people, who then schedule the email blasts to addresses on their listserve. Say a certain somebody or a group of them, accidentally pushed out the wrong coupon and before they realized it, the coupon ended up on SD and as we all know it, it becomes employee's worst nightmare.

So, I'm really not sure what exactly are you thinking. Tell me, why do you think they have issued this promotion in it's original form? Do you really think there's an alterior motive besides getting their customers to empty their shelves for newer merchandise?

Oh, my sights are set low alright. I didn't even expect to walk out with the $100 worth of Amazon GCs that I did, especially as I had no funds on my MC and my PayPal card did not work at the register.

Has anyone else ever noticed that most price mistakes happen on-and-around Sunday?

I know my comments in this post will get buried amongst the thousands of posts, which is good because I'm sure it will be unpopular.

Best Buy made a mistake with the coupon that could've cost the company millions of dollars over the next few days. Who knows exactly who/what the coupon was intended for but it's pretty obvious it wasn't intended to reach the amount of people it did or include the initial things it did. Best Buy is well within their right to change or cancel a promotion at any time - just like any other retailer. Sure everyone is quick to slander Best Buy about how bad they were blah blah blah, but fact is they offered something nice for a little while that many, many people took advantage of. The people that could not participate got all bent out of shape because they think they're entitled - but they're not. With few exceptions, this didn't ruin anyone's day other then the fact that you tried to get something cheap and failed. That's fine and all, but don't think Best Buy owes you anything.

I wasn't able to take advantage of this promotion and I'm not losing sleep over it because we'll all collectively move on to the next deal and so on and so on, the world won't end. Best Buy, while unpopular, is the last remaining major big box retailer in the US and if that goes away it would be pretty crappy.

It's easy on an internet forum to huff and puff but lets be real with ourselves for a moment and try to act at least somewhat civilized.

[/soapbox]

PS, I did laugh about the guy photocopying the coupon on the in-store printers.

Wonder if it was a laid off or disgruntled employee that made this coupon as his going away present.

Agreed..to a point...but it helps to remember who the target audience is with threads like this. Think more along the line of hyaenas...with computer skills.
