Next, some people are going to tell the moms not to use several legitimate coupons on top of legitimate store discount to get the price of a bottle of shampoo down to 20 cents.....because, because the store could lose money and it's not "nice". How big of a % off will it become "unethical" for you to go after? Big Grin

its bait and switch because they promote something to get you in the store, and then dishonor the promotion, but give you something else....and although they have an edited exclusions coupon, the original coupon is stll up and they've decided to not take it down, so people that don't know about slickdeals or fatwallet, etc, are going into the stores still and getting duped.... it'd be one thing if they took the iniitall coupon down, but they still have it up... and i've stated this before, but this is a re-occurring thing with BB...you'd think they'd have a checklist of what things to write and include, and what things to not write...its not rocket science...
It's only considered bait and switch if you can prove you received the e-mail offer. Most other people never received this offer. They went on some deal sites and click on the link that cannot be found by navigating thru BB website. They should be taken down but the people who can get there are people who read the deals on other websites.

Remember all it would take is a public announcement about the mistake and Best Buy will be off the hook. Best Buy is allowed to make mistakes and correct them. They are not legally obliged to honor mistakes.

I used the coupon today successfully at Best Buy in Golden, CO. Got the 3TB External Hitachi for $75 with tax out the door. Thanks to the poster and all of the recommendations in the thread!

For all those who bought a gazillion Amazon Gift cards.... can you combine gift card purchases? For example if I wanted to buy a Kindle Fire HD ($200), you need at least 2 gift cards. can you use multiple gift cards for one purchase? Thanks

my guess is mastercard is not happy with thier name being used in a promotion the retailer didn't honor either.
Clearly states MC had nothing to do with it. With all the MC transactions and MC GCs bought I'm sure MC is pleased.

no signs anywhere in my local store.
I don't have a BB within 60 miles of me. I was just going by what people were reporting on here. Several said signs were up everywhere now. On doors and by every register.

That's true. But then again you're talking about 10 truck loads of shampoo to make a store lose a few hundred dollars. Most stores do freebie deals on purpose to make you go to the stores and buy something else. CVS and Rite Aid have free after reward dollar deals all the time. But here we're talking about Best Buy losing $6,000 on someone who claimed to get away with $12,000 worth of gift cards on what's obviously an error on Best Buy's part.

Yes. You can combine as many giftcards as you want per purchase on Amazon.

edit: The easiest way to do this would be to add all the giftcards to your account at once, without making a purchase, then go through and buy whatever you want whenever you want. The amount will stay in your account like a lump credit and be deducted as you spend it.

Are you really comparing a bottle of shampoo to thousands of dollars in gift cards?

Because the deal was a special deal for silver members only. They screwed up by not publishing that on the coupon. As for sticking it to them, not really, because they work at the store and you had to drive there so you're out of time and gas but left empty handed. Either way, BB did screw up but they also have the rights to fix it as soon as they found out.
except best buy didn't earn any time nor do I buy my gas from them. I may have wasted my time, but they didn't profit from it

uhm that would require a lawsuit.. and they don't happen over night. the best they could do is sue each person individually and finally lose at court.. thereby throwing away good money after bad in legal fees. by that time..the money would be long gone too.
well, they don't sue individuals. They will make you sue them, draining all of your cash in court.
They will contact the gift card authorization center to tell them that the gift card sales were considered as abused. The gift card center will then cancel the value. If the gift cards are not used to purchase products yet, they will disappear from the balance or your account.
If the gift cards were already used to purchase products not shipped yet, the merchants will cancel your order. If the products were already ship, the merchants have to decide whether they should recall the shipment, because they might receive no money from the gift card centers. If the products were already received, they would ask you to pay for it as the gift cards were no longer valid.

Gift cards (not gift certificate) are considered as cash by laws. Exchanging $50 for $100 in multiples may be considered as money laundry, and tax fraud if you don't have license and do not pay for those extras you get.

And that's one guy...let's say 100 people across the country did the same thing. That's more than half of a million lost simply because of a coupon.
