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.

Shop Status (Post what stores worked, semi worked, or refused. Feel free toupdate this!

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.

Lafayette - Worked on a Nike+ Fuel GPS Watch which was on sale by giving you an extra $10 BB GC at time of purchase.

Iowa
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
Howell - Didnt work on giftcards but I got 2 aqua pure filters for Samsung refrigerator for $100 - $50 total being $50 plus tax. Manager had to override but it worked and still a decent deal.

So on one hand you are saying how great of a person she is by helping you out, and on the other hand you are telling thousands of people to start calling/emailing her demanding compensation???

As the saying goes, with friends like these....

Here is a little SD rule of thumb: if someone at a company helps you out, as Elizabeth seemed to have done for you, then you should never, never, NEVER drop their contact info into the thread for everyone else to harass them. Because now, assuming Elizabeth ever comes back to work, she's never going to help anyone out ever again.

Good job.

What are you babbling about? For someone trying to make a point by acting like they're so much better than everyone else, you certainly have your facts messed up (which just makes you look foolish).

This WAS a valid coupon that BEST BUY sent out to many people. MasterCard has absolutely nothing to do with it - it even says so on the coupon. How do you know that he didn't receive it from Best Buy? You don't. While the vast majority of the people in this thread didn't, that doesn't mean no one did.

And there was no "loophole". Best Buy screwed up and sent out a very good (for us) coupon with almost no restrictions. This wasn't a hack, fraud, etc. It was simply a stupid company making a stupid decision, and then trying to cover their asses from the repercussions.

If you think someone trying to use the legitimate coupon for what it says it's valid for is "robbing" Best Buy, well, you're just an idiot.

Next time you should actually read about the deal and understand what happened before telling people off. And if this thread is 'wasting your bandwidth', feel free to leave.
Like I said many times, there is a big difference between getting a bargain and capitalizing someone's mistake and make him/her pay dearly for that mistake. Even news media mentioned that this deal was too good to be true. I talked to Best Buy manager and he told me not too many people received this offer. But there were so many people who never received this offer, but printed so many coupons they used it to buy thousands of dollars worth of Amazon giftcards at 50% off. They bragged how stupid Best Buy was to give away business to competitors. Let's face it. If Best Buy runs this promo all week, I have no doubt many people here would buy every last giftcards Amazon sells in order to make quick profit on eBay. Nobody cared if Best Buy loses billions on this offer. They don't even care if Best Buy goes out of business next month because of what they did.

So I went to BB yesterday and put the manager in a wrist lock and used the coupon that said it was good for this week. He said okay to that. Then I filled up a kart with stuff and placed them randomly throughout the store. The best is when you ziptie a product to the floor of the kart and they can not figure out what its caught on.

I just thought someone whose job it is to care for customers would be happy to do so. But, I appreciate your advice; perhaps you should remove her contact info from your post as well?

Iagree

I cleaned up my post as well, though Im sure the damage is done. I asked the mods to delete her info and they said if that BB employee wants their information taken off, let that person contact SD, otherwise, let it remain. She is probably wondering where the hell on the internet is her info to be bombarded with calls today after helping that one soul....probably never again Facepalm

Fortunately, the person who posted the info removed it (as I did from my quote). Hopefully the outcome wasn't too bad for her.

I'm surprised the mods wouldn't censor it. Then again, maybe not after some of the other blatant disregard for common sense I've seen on this site lately. The fact that they left the "how to commit coupon fraud against Netflix" thread up for an entire weekend, apparently at the direction of the site owner, for example...

In general, I agree that that type of personal info should not be posted here. But I have a open case with that department, and email tag is slow, so I called her and used her. . .to get transferred to the person I needed.

Thanks (and shame on you) roleya for posting it.

Iagree

I cleaned up my post as well, though Im sure the damage is done. I asked the mods to delete her info and they said if that BB employee wants their information taken off, let that person contact SD, otherwise, let it remain. She is probably wondering where the hell on the internet is her info to be bombarded with calls today after helping that one soul....probably never again Facepalm
Didn't everyone take a screenshot of the personal info???

Agree that personal info shouldn't be given out but BBB should be notified. This was bad business practice. https://minnesota.app.bbb.org/com...bbbid=0704

They only report to higher agencies when complaints are trending.

So I went to BB yesterday and put the manager in a wrist lock and used the coupon that said it was good for this week. He said okay to that. Then I filled up a kart with stuff and placed them randomly throughout the store. The best is when you ziptie a product to the floor of the kart and they can not figure out what its caught on.
lollaugh out loud

Elizebth was not helpful at all.
I sent her email along with my case # as well as I called, she called me back and told me they revised the coupon and they would not honor this. She did not offer any gift card.

I told her that just the last week I bought over $600 worth of goods which she could confirm but still she denied.

Last I said I will return the stuff back to bestbuy and will buy from a different store.

You should have asked Liz to be out on a date later this weekend! Also told her that if she played nicely, you would buy her a nice dozen red roses with a box of the best milk chocolate!

Otherwise, you're just another "dude" among the thousands who are bugging the heck outta her. Why would she care?
