here goes my story, ran this morning as soon as i seen the coupon. tried to buy apple tv, they wouldnt let me, so i grabbed a roku 2 xs instead, cost me $55 asked manager if i could do it again he said sure man theres no limit on here, so i got a wireless headset for my 360 and camera bag for $65, i didnt have any more coupons left, so i went home and printed up 6 more with the idea im going to buy all the hdds i need for my new raid, new manager there wouldnt sell me more then 1, and i even had my wife stand in line behind me, but she was using my mastercard the bitch at the counter realized it was the same name, already charged my card, and then voided it out afterwards like a real bxtch. so now i gotta wait 3-5 days for my refund . so i only ended up with 1 2 tb hdd for $65

oh well all in all i still saved $150 on the stuff, but i really needed those other hdd's.. gonna try again tomorrow i guess
wow, so the CSR gets called out (2x) for doing her job...classic Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
More employees like that probably would have saved managers headaches and probably allowed the deal to roll on. She should be promoted laugh out loud

It will be interesting to see what happens at Best Buy over the next couple of days.

Not everybody reads or even knows about Slickdeals. EEK! There are many
people who got the original coupon in their email legitimately from Best Buy.
I was one of those. At the time, I didn't think much of the coupon, bu then I saw
this thread yesterday morning and rushed to Best Buy to TAKE ADVANTAGE
of it. All I got was $200 of Amazon Kindle gift cards for $100. (8 $25 cards in
two transactions, which the manager approved with a smile)

It is now 7AM EST on Tuesday. I'm looking at the original coupon that was in
my email. Best Buy corporate still hasn't sent me a 2nd email telling me about
the revised terms and conditions. If I had not read this Slickdeals thread, I
woudl probably be going to Best Buy today, only to be disppointed or p**sed
of when I get there. I'm sure hundreds, if not thousands, of other customers
will be as well.

My sister-in-law, a nice little old lady, got the coupon in her email. She became
a RewardZone silver last month. She was talking about getting a Cuisinart
food processor($130?) at Best Buy tomorrow. I stopped her and told her about
this thread. Imagine how angry her face turned. Frown Probably even angrier if she
showed up at Best Buy with the coupon. The poor cashier will learn what "hell
hath no fury like a woman scorned" means. In this case, scorned by Best Buy.
She is a like Judge Judy and Sarah Palin combined into one person. She once
made a Macy's store manager(a 6-ft guy) burst into tears for not accepting a coupon.

Quote from NewtonFine View Post :
Actually, I do not watch such dribble at all. If I were such a litigant, I would expense:

1. my time at my professional rate(s),
2. my fuel costs,
3. wear-and-tear to my ride,
4. expenses during my trip (food, drink, parking fees, etc.)
5. any incidental costs that I could think up...

Judges usually give a victor a lot of leeway once you make your case, especially on incidentals, so long as they are not preposterous/outrageous in nature/origin. Using the above criteria, I could easily reach the $1k mark on a "$50 off $100" suit.
No offense, but the judge will probably say, if your professional time is worth that much to you, you shouldn't be driving to Best Buy and dismiss your case. But I could be wrong. If you really try to make a case, please let us know how it goes. Smilie

Went to BB in Tukwila monday night just before closing with intention of buying a SSD. Horrible selection. In fact only 2. 120gb and 180gb intels. Grabbed a EVGA GeForce GTX 550 ti , 2gb, superclocked graphics card. It was on clearance at $108 from $179.99. Presented a coupon, no problems. Paid with a mastercard gift card. Came out to $64.59 after taxes. Pretty damn sweet.

Kicker was you really did not have to use MasterCard for this. They took off the $50 at the register, then you swipe the card to pay. Coulda been any payment form since most had to get the coupon put in manually anyway. This whole thing was a mess, and people who went to print out 10 coupons are pretty pathetic just exploiting something they KNOW was not the intention.

Will Worst Buy publish a correction for correction?

They will probably have signs at stores stating that the promotion was either intended only for MLK day or that the promotion ended early due to overwhelming demand.

I could easily see a class action starting. The real winners in a class action are the attorneys. They do not care about negligible damages. But if they started one, they would look for a lead plaintiff who was induced by the coupon to come in and buy a $100 item for $50 but who was turned down at the register and paid $100 instead. Damage= at least $50

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.


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

It's amusing that someone got $2000 worth of GCs (wow) and that another person photocopied coupons for other customers. However, those stories also underscore why it's reasonable for Best Buy to issue a correction/clarification about a coupon.

They had already posted apologetic signs about GCs and other items being exempt when I went yesterday morning. They said I couldn't apply the coupon to a Kindle Paperwhite, so instead I bought a 2TB WD Passport portable USB3 HDD for $111 ($150 - $50 coupon + $6 tax + $5 prepaid MC gift card fee).

Still a slick deal.

Anyone else scored on the TouchPad deal (in 2011) AND this? (bought a 560 ti video card an hour after BB opened yesterday.)
I managed to get 5-6 Touchpads, then a couple more refurbished ones, and a bunch of accessories and flipped them on eBay and craigslist for a solid profit of around $800. I got $1900 in gift cards yesterday at Best Buy and a Kindle Paperwhite. Key to getting both deals was getting in early!

I still don't understand BB.

We take advantage of coupons every day that are not intended for items because the system accepts it. But at BB, the system is set up correctly yet their store managers override it. laugh out loud Just amazing...

I think you quoted the wrong person. I was pointing out it wasnt bait and switch. Were you so in a hurry to get an insult out you forgot how to read?

Look, I bought $2,500 in amazon gift cards prior to the coupon terms changing, and in my purchase I abided by ALL of the terms set forth in the coupon. I fail to see how this is "abusing the system".
It's also legal for you to sleep with your husband's best friend, but that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do.

LOL! They need to establish some rules about when it's acceptable to override stuff Smilie

I think this was an epic mistake on BB's part, but really, what's new?
Exactly. If they had sent unique coupons to the "select few" it was intended for, this whole thing could have been avoided. You'd think they would have learned by now anything of this nature will spread like wildfire and people will take advantage.
