Thread Details

Go easy as this is my second deal posting. This deal is not dead but YMMV. See below

If you still have the college student deal email showing GoPro picture as one of the eligible coupons, then you have 2 options. BestBuy will honor it if you do the following:

1) Print out the email (must click "show original email" when you open the message because the SKU # showing the GoPro is clipped in Gmail)

2) Take it to Best Buy and show them the print out and the email on your phone to customer service. Ask for the manager as only he/she can manually input the discount.

3) Tell them there is a glitch where GoPro code won't show up. Your print out email has the SKU#8374096 of GoPro as eligible for the 15% discount at the bottom. They will do a manual 15% off.

Alternatively,

Forward the email to facebook@bestbuy.com. This is their marketing team. Explain to them your code isn't showing up. They will send you an email apologizing for this BS they pulled and send you a new code.

I just got mine done at the store with the print out of the ad without the code AND got a new code from the marketing team.

What was the in-store price? It was $399 in my local Best Buy and they agreed to match the $329 online price but said they cannot stack up the 15% off coupon on top of the online sales price.

I emailed the Best Buy Facebook Team. Nothing back. How long does it take them to resend code?

They said I can apply the 15%off on the full store $399 price or get the online $329 price matched, but not both. That was from the sales manager that has the ability to adjust the price without further approval.

You are not stacking anything. The correct price is $329. There's no rule saying if in-store matches online price, no coupon could be used. That coupon was supposed to be used online or instore. A lot of these losers who work in retail make shit up all the time.

The coupon is for 15% off which applies online. You could have applied that online. I took with me print out of the price shown in cart. That sales person is just being a negative nancy. Go back and take what's yours.

You had to have gotten the code prior to yesterday. They took it out starting today.

I got it back within an hour. Prolly more like 40 minutes.

They might be off work already if they are in the eastcoast.

I didn't have an actual code, just the email advertising the code. I showed the email to the sales manager, but he wasn't willing to apply it on the matched online $329 price.
I went to my car and called 1888-best-buy. They matched the online price and took an extra 15% off to match the $280 price. I opted for instore pickup, walked right back into the store and the guy at the store pickup counter fulfilled the order, no questions asked.
