If calling to make a complaint at 1-888-BestBuy, SPECIFICALLY request to speak with CONSUMER RELATIONS. Everyone else will give you the run around! Bestbuy will issue you a $50 GC via mail once they verify your receipt for a SINGLE ITEM purchase of $100+.

**I just spoke with the consumer relates dept. and they told me under no circumstances are they allowed to compensate anyone. This directive came down from the big wigs at HQ.** 01/27/13 15:36

Deal is DEAD! Promo was only good for ONE DAY, Monday January 21, MLK Holiday!

Original LINK finally removed from BB servers sometime on 01.23.13

Edit by ReanimationXP, 1/22/13 @ 12:24pm:
Deal is dead officially, but still working provisionally! YMMV.

A correction like this is false advertising! Don't let this one die so easily, SDers!


I just called 1-888-BestBuy and explained that the manager at the Camelback location in Phoenix, AZ was refusing to honor the deal of the printout I had, and warned this could bring about a false advertising lawsuit. She was very nice and helpful. I was trying to buy Amazon gift cards which she could not pull up online (I coudn't either), but she offered to mail me a $100 gift card and only charge me $50 for it. She also double-checked that I would be able to buy an Amazon gift card with my Best Buy giftcard once it comes in. YMMV, good luck!

EDIT: I just mentioned how they took care of the guy below me with the Keurig, and she sent me $150 gift cards for the price of $50 and express shipped them to me without me even asking! This is incredible! They really don't want a lawsuit Smilie

READ the thread for latest info. Some people got denied when using the coupon.

What has been confirmed based on comment in this thread (WITHOUT manager override)
  • Doesn't work on sale items - Not true according to some but Bestbuy forum confirmed this. It is $50 off regular price
  • One Single item must be more than $100 - Not true according to some but Bestbuy forum link in the beginning of Wiki confirmed One item must be at least $100.
  • Doesn't work on GC - Confirmed to exclude gift cards by a Best Buy representative on Facebook, but YMMV

    Note from a Slickdealer about gift cards: "Bought the Amazon GCs and manager thought $50 would be statement credit, told me if I did not get statement credit to come back and he would adjust. Did not want to play that game so returned the GCs and got a printer. The manager had to call their support team, and they said that it does not work on any GCs at all. (YMMV of course). It did not take the $50 automatically on the GCs but did on the printer..."
  • Doesn't work on video games - Not true according to some
  • Doesn't work on Kindle Paperwhite WiFi without manager override
  • Doesn't work on Apple TV without manager override
To qualify for the discount, MasterCard must be used on a purchase of $100 or greater. Some people indicate ONE item need to be over $100, but multiple people have gotten it to work with no override on a combined purchase.

Per the facebook page:
Quote :
Hi Amy-

It has to be ANY Mastercard credit card. Mastercard gift cards would not be accepted.

-Jesse-


Pre-paid master cards may no longer work if the manager is in the loop

* I paid CASH... but had a prepaid Walmart MasterCard($3 fee) in hand because after the cashier and manager were done doing the override,
they paid no attention to the $50 bill I handed over.Just rang it up and gave me the receipt. Smilie
I think the reason is that the coupon didn't scan on the 4 $25 Amazon Kindle gift cards
and they had to take off the $50 manually. If the coupon had scanned, it would probably
not accept any other payment except MasterCard. Smilie

If you don't have a Mastercard, purchase a prepaid Mastercard from any store and use it. Read cashier instructions on coupon. Doesn't seem to have exclusions regarding type of Mastercard.

California
Valencia - purchased multiple blu-rays. bb.com had the LOTR extended blu ray set for $45.99 so price matched plus bought Ted, Sons of Anarchy, Legend and Red Riding Hood. Manager override needed, he came over and knocked down the price of SOA and LOTR to reflect the $50 off. Cashier had issues with the coupon, had to be scanned first but still needed the override to work. paid with best buy card Smilie not mastercard.

Tustin - Wouldn't accept the coupon on multiple items, it had to be over $100 on a single purchase.

Marina - As of 4 pm, my wife was able to snag two Amazon GCs (cashier and manager didn't care). I was able to buy 9 x 16 K-cups, even though the coupon said ONE SINGLE ITEM. The Marina Best Buy is really lax. It's probably because it's in a small town.

Georgia
Atlanta (Perimeter) - Not taking coupon *today* "due to error in BBY system"
Duluth - Worked with Roku 2 XS with mgr. over ride

Maryland
Owings Mills - Gift Cards of any type - no good (manager said no), everything else is okay (minus exceptions) (1/21/13 @ 10:01)
Security Blvd - gift cards are considered "air time cards" therefore will not sell any product that requires "activation" with this promo, else products can be bought. (1/21/13 @ 11:20)
Frederick, MD (21703) - WORKED! needed mgr.. Wanted to buy 3 with seperate transactions, instead mgr took $150 off the canon 430 flash. (scooped for $111, down from $350 on sale for $255)
White Marsh, MD - The manager has asked all the associate to deny honoring the coupon because "the system does not apply the coupon correctly" . I talked to the manager and she refuses to do overrides even though I stood in line for 45 minutes.


Minnesota-
St Cloud - I was able to buy the 24" LG LED HDTV Reg Price $229 SALE price $169-$50 coupon = final price of $119 + tax. I was THRILLED! They were very careful at first to make sure it didn't go against any of the restrictions but went through smoothly. I purchased at about 7:30p.m. Monday though. They weren't going to honor it any other day. There were signs all over the store and on the front doors.

Virginia
Manassas (20110) -Worked on Canon lens
Sterling/Dulles - Worked with xbox 320 GB hdd upgrade without any problem
Reston - picked up the last 3TB WD Green. Manager was needed to process the order, but gave me no trouble about the coupon. Got it for $104.99 after tax.
Chantilly - picked up ANOTHER 3TB WD Green. This time for some reason, they gave it to me for $99.74 after tax! Apparently when the manager overrides the price, the result can be different depending on how they do it.
Woodbridge (22193) -Worked on Apple TV w/ Manager Approval at 3pm. Went back and they won't give any discounts to Apple products as of 6pm.

Indiana
Bloomington (47404) - Did not work on gift cards. was able to use it on a Roku XS 2
Columbus (47201) - Worked on 2x $50 Amazon GC's - overridden by cashier w/out manager approval. Crappy store. Refused to honor the coupon.

Coralville - 1/21/13 8PM would not work for GC and was told "only one coupon per customer." Purchased a 3tb Toshiba external hard drive. $129.99 - $10.00 (on sale) - $50 = $70 + tax Manager override not required. Used Walmart GC MC.

Oregon
Cascade Station - manager had to override on AGC, but seemed to be aware of the coupon and was honoring the terms.

Pennsylvania
Whitehall - did not work on gift cards, manager would not override.

Texas

Austin(78704 on Ben White Blvd) - did not work on gift cards, manager would not override.

Willowbrook(77066) - worked on Intel 520 120GB SSD drive. Coupon wouldn't scan but worked on manual entry.
Edit: They have stopped any GC purchase with coupon here in Willowbrook store. They are NOT doing manual override anymore. Whatever scans will be allowed only. Had to buy a kids DVD on top of Roku-2 XS to bring it above $100. Even school supplied or candy won't work Frown.

Washington : Bellevue and Tukwila are no longer accepting purchases for gift cards

Florida: Jacksonville (St. John's Town Center) - Apple TV will not work. - Other items work

Coupon still wouldn't take but manager (different from the am, obviously) came over and fixed it no problemo. Smilie
Woodbridge - worked 2 min to closing, but they held firm to exclusing/inclusion list. Poor cashiers were hammered today, so I conveyed to them a heartfelt thanks

If they let you return it. Read the policy. They don't have to. Even if they do, you'll burn a DL swipe.

For those that are asking, I used it at Staples on Friday for a computer and my mom used it for two Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight. I'm always in there though and the manager knows me, so she called corporate and asked for an override code for both of us.

I also used it at Best Buy in Victor, NY. It took a few minutes of polite complaining and a manger override. I got a Kindle Paperwhite.

Assuming you can figure out how to print more than one, yes, of course. Is that a serious question?
wouldn't you just need to make copies of it since it's not going to scan for other stores other then BestBuy?

Seriously?

Ok, yes, you could either print multiple copies of the coupon OR print one of the coupons and then make photocopies of it.

Wow, this thread has gone downhill fast.

Thanks for the encouragement!

I was going to call it a day since I got my $50 GC coming from BB, but decided to give a competitor a shot. I called my local Staples and asked if they accepted competitor coupons. The girl said yes, so I headed over. Picked up a Kindle Paperwhite and had very little issue checking out. The girl I spoke to on the phone rang me up. The manager initially said "this can only be used at Best Buy", but I mentioned I spoke to someone who said I could use it there (I figured it was the girl checking me out, but wasn't 100% until she admitted to saying that). He looked it over for a few seconds, then told her to ring it up as a competitor coupon. He tried scanning it (???) but it didn't go through (obviously), so he just entered in the numbers and took $50 off.

Receipt attached for anyone who it might help.

Good luck!
I'm kind of regretting getting the paperwhite over the Kindle Fire HD. Think its worth the extra $70 for the fire HD?

IMHO, I would much rather get (and I have) a Nexus 7 over a Kindle Fire HD. Price wise, they are the same, but functionality wise, the N7 is much better.

Even though I have a tablet (actually a few) I wanted to Kindle Paperwhite for book reading. I prefer e-ink to LCD displays for long-term reading. I have an older Kindle, but the PW has better resolution, and the built in light is nice too.

So in the end, it comes down to your personal preference and what you intend to do with the device.

As with all things, it comes down to what you prefer. Are you still running WebOS? If so, do you prefer that to Android? If you do, or if you installed Android and are content with the capabilities of the TP, then you might not need to upgrade to the N7.

However, from a hardware, software, etc. perspective, yes, the Nexus7 blows the TP away.

I filed a complaint with the bbb. I encourage you all to do the same.
I wish there was a website to file complaints against entitled consumers.

Best Buy made an obvious mistake with this coupon, and they have every right to correct the mistake. If you ever took a wrong turn, and found yourself going the wrong way down a one way street, I would have no problem with allowing you the courtesy to take corrective action, rather than put yourself in danger.

Have you even put them side by side and done a comparison? It doesn't even look like the same coupon? I wasn't even able to use ONE and was given the run around... Spent 2 hours in store, 3 on the phone being transferred around, an hour in driving back and forth twice... Bought $200 in prepaid MasterCard cards with the intention of using two. Ridiculous... Need I add my 2 month experience of being without my laptop last year when their joke repair center couldn't figure out what was wrong with my 5 year old piece of junk other than the fact it was a piece of junk (that was still under their warranty plan.) I'm tired of their bs. No offense. And with my laptop last year I easily spent over 12 hours on the phone over those 2 months, countless times in store after receiving false pick up in store emails...

I totally forgot about this deal and realized the supposedly last day is today - Jan 27th. The thread is pretty long to go through. Is the deal really dead or still works on certain products?

If you ever took a wrong turn, and found yourself going the wrong way down a one way street, I would have no problem with allowing you the courtesy to take corrective action, rather than put yourself in danger.
Voice of reason does not seem to be welcomed in this thread. And folks will use past issues to bolster this issue. I'd be curious to see people actually talk about positive stories at BB, but that is rare. Out of 100 people who could be happywith their shopping experience, 10% will probably say so. Out of 100 people who had a bad experience, 70% will say so.

I've personally only had one bad experience with BB within the past two months and it was with their online customer service, otherwise, no issues. They have room for improvement, but that improvement will need to start with their executive team in my opinion.

I'm going to work in a bit. I may swing into best buy and give it one last try. I need a bluray.
