Best Buy Poll for 02/12/2013 - FB Needed - 25 Reward zone Points
 
1 Attachment(s)
Warning, some people reported getting 0 points. Might be safer to do this poll after Midnight CST if you have done a lot of polls! MAX 2 per day

https://www.facebook.com/bestbuy/...0188063684




Your recent transactions may be delayed through 2/23.
I wouldn't worry too much if your points disappear after getting them. Also, any points gathered in 2012 have expired.
Lastly, some people have contacted Best Buy customer support by calling them and have gotten their points back and sometimes some compensation. YMMV

TAKE THE POLL
Some cities are famous for their Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) festivities. Where would you love to celebrate?

That's not how it was and I am not sure who set the rules and when these rules suddenly change:confused:. But, I totally agree with you:). Will keep in mind next time.:cool:

okinawanmatt 02-11-2013 08:39 PM

Is anyone legitimately receiving their points? I know that when you take the poll, you see the increase in points right there on Facebook. But if you actually go to the reward zone page (myrewardzone.bestbuy.com) and log in to your account, every poll you've taken in the past few days are probably "pending" and your point total is actually 0.

That's the case for a few other people who had the "Point Adjustment" happen on their account this past weekend, which was supposed to only reset the reward zone points for 2012.

Mine are all there.They also zapped my points on 2/6/13 but I emailed them and they added them back.

deshwasi 02-11-2013 08:56 PM

as was suggested in one of the threads, when you get the points added by poll, leave that window untouched and open another tab for myrewardzone.com and redeem/print certs right then. you *should* be able to redeem for the max points you see after poll.

drkhuls 02-11-2013 09:10 PM

is anyone getting more than 1 poll a day? Thanks OP, for reminding me again...

san83 02-11-2013 09:15 PM

yes you can.

Farslasher 02-11-2013 09:33 PM

My comments are..... If your points are showing up correctly, then you cash out and issue a certificate. Calling Reward zone line is hopeless, they will say your points add up to your new low... So cash out and keep adding em up

mpoling11 02-11-2013 09:37 PM

how do you take the poll 2 times?

Use a second facebook account logging into the best buy rewards zone and doing the same poll again.

It's like doing the poll twice every single day; you get 50 points everyday.

Briwas101 02-11-2013 09:46 PM

Can someone pleas3 explain. How to get this poll to work.

I have tried EVERY day, and every time I click the link it says error.

Is there a program you have to download, or anything else besides just having facebook?

I also try going to the best buy facebook page but it has nothing about a poll.

Would really like free points

zeeshansyed 02-11-2013 09:49 PM

Super noob question but for the people who didn't participate in the earlier pools, is there any way to do that now?

Not true. I tried that but it did NOT work. It said that I have 0 points. Did let me take the pool, but did not give me any RP :(

IamPro 02-11-2013 09:55 PM

I know this is random but is anyone else getting on their account they are Premier Silver Status? I spend some money in BB but pretty sure its not close to the $2500 or w.e. is needed :look:

I spent $2490 last year and they refused to give me premier status. Then when these polls started, I noticed that I had been upgraded to premier so whatever.

No idea. I hope it goes on for a really long time. I think I heard someone mention until the 23rd but maybe they were talking about something else.

Try ordering something on BB.com and looking at your RZ status right before the final check out. I had the same thing happen and it says Core on mine. I think it is just an error on RZ website. You should also get free expedited shipping if you have premier and this wasn't the case for me.

Did you make sure to verify your account email before taking any polls? also, BB is currently doing maintenance on the site. I would just keep doing it since I see the points right after taking the poll then it disappears again. Sometimes, I just get 0 points but it shows up in the total after taking another poll.

What date/time did you take the last poll?

Why didn't you wait until Midnight Central Time? BBY corporate time in Central so if if took the last poll and had points recorded in your account on 2/11/2013 then you can't get anymore until 2/12/2013 Central time.

It does work. Make sure when you sign into the 2nd FB account, the name appearing in the Best Buy app matches the name of the FB account. I sign out of my account if it shows my name and then I sign back in. Does that make sense?

I think 24 hours gap between polls should work fine. I wasted 2 polls y'day as I was doing them less than 24 hrs.

That's not right.

Midnight central time is vital. I got 100 just minutes ago within 6 min.

I took the first poll in my first account at 11:56 Central time. It had already 25 points before , and after taking today's poll , 50 was added from that account.

I repeated the 6 minutes later in the second account at 12:02 central time and got another 50.

Yes, 24 hrs will be fine, but the key in the Mudnight Central Time Zone as another post mentioned. I've certainly taken polls a couple hours apart and gotten plenty of points.

Maybe, but since that poll has a countdown clock I don't think there will anyway to take it early. The MembersChoice aquestion should be active at the same time. Both of those are one time only (per FB account) and can be taken over several days period of time.

It'll be nice to get 200 points in one day again again assuming the points are like the last time.

As a premier, I didn't care much about using Expedited shipping.
Then this one time I order with Expedited shipping and they sent it out as standard shipping.

They automatically give me a $20 GC... I didn't even notice the thing is ship out using standard until the send me an email and offer me $20 GC!

Now I ALWAYS use Expedited!!!

Maybe it is late or because I have had a long day but I don't get it. What you mean is I need two facebook accounts and two rewards zone accounts?

What I did was, I signed in my Facebook account. Went to Bestbuy app (rewards zone) then signed into my RewardsZone account. Entered the poll.

I then signed in using my wife's Facebook account. Went to BestBuy app and then signed in MY rewards zone account to double the points. Entered the poll but it said you have 0 points.

Please tell me what am I missing? Thanks a lot!

GoodDealsGood 02-12-2013 12:08 AM

Just asking... How many accounts do you have while doing these polls? I have two doing twice on each, is that good enough?

This worked for me, was having the same issue of points showing on Facebook but not the website. Did this after doing the poll today and was able to generate a $15 reward. 500 of which were from a csr that added them to make up for 200 points lost because of the point adjustment.

AlwayzJ 02-12-2013 04:42 AM

I had this happen on my reward zone account, did you guys have this happen on yours too? what do I do about it?

02/06/2013 Point Adjustment Annual Point Expiration. See Program Rules. -122

They reset points from 2012 in early February. I would try calling as the ones I have seen get it reversed have called, those who sent emails have not been as lucky. I had 200 points expire and got 500 points added back. The points that expired for me were from actual purchases so if you only have Facebook points on your account idk if they will do it but its worth a try. I called1800bestbuy

andygol 02-12-2013 05:02 AM

Fast easy points

Thinboy 02-12-2013 05:14 AM

Not sure if this has been answered previously, but is it possible to use RWzone certificates from two different accounts on the same purchase? My wife and I have different accounts but have both been doing this... could we use our certificates together without them combining the accounts?

snotface 02-12-2013 06:25 AM

I too had points missing because of the "Point Adjustment / Annual Point Expiration." So, I called BB and the rep stated that on Feb 23 the missing points will be automatically added back to my account. She said they are currently resetting the system. We shall see!

jiannichan 02-12-2013 06:52 AM

3 more days of poles and I can redeem $10...or I can just wait until the end of the month and I will have $20. I still have some points from purchases that are pending.

I would redeem them as soon as you can. Plus smaller amounts are more flexible and you can use more than one certificate if you want so does not make a difference if you do 2 $10 or one $20.

antibiotic 02-12-2013 08:28 AM

Didnt get points for 2 days in a row, showing 0 points :(

Bnnyslippers 02-12-2013 09:21 AM

Strange- I'm up to 350 pts as of today but no new gift certs are showing as available to be printed. The only ones showing are ones I've already printed. I'm due a new $5.00 cert but it's not appearing. Sup with dat?

monkey40oz 02-12-2013 10:52 AM

A side note for everyone, you can combine multiple rewardzone certificates from different accounts onto one purchase. So if you parents or someone wants to let you use their RZ account you can as well.

its4me 02-12-2013 11:54 AM

Call BB customer service and ask them to redirect to rewardzone team.
They will reset it and also add some additional points to your account. :nod:

It defaults to 500 pts.($10) b4 certs are generated. Maybe you got to change that to 250.

Happened to me as well. You have to manually request it. You click on generate $5 cert and it will give you the $5. :)

Had no problems until yesterday! Lost 306 points today. Called BB Customer Service and spoke to the reward zone team. First rep said to wait until the 23rd and the points will show up. Called again and the 2nd rep issued 500 customer satisfaction points for the inconvenience. Points showed up instantly even though she said it might take about a week to show up. Took today's poll 2x and got the usual 50 points on top of the 500 i just got reissued! :)

What I did was, I signed in my Facebook account. Went to Bestbuy app (rewards zone) then signed into my RewardsZone account. Entered the poll.

I then signed in using my wife's Facebook account. Went to BestBuy app and then signed in MY rewards zone account to double the points. Entered the poll but it said you have 0 points.

Please tell me what am I missing? Thanks a lot!

Seriously guys. A little help here?

most of the guys having similar issues, all you need to do is to call bestbuy customer care and report the problem that you are seeing zero points in your account, they will take care of ur points and you will be seeing all your points back in your account within 24 hrs.
