Members Choice ends in 23 hours I think. I assumed same as you first time I glanced it.

shyam09 02-16-2013 08:32 PM

200 points per RZ account (if you have 2 FBs) = one more day for your free 5 :D
wish they gave 100 points every day :D

Are you sure about the max points being 100? What if we do 2 polls and 2 ultimate? I might have done that before. Will check my records and report back. I thought I did more than 100 points in a day... FB not working for me.

As far as i remember, I got only 100 against 2 FB accounts, so 100 max. But you can take the poll again with different FB accounts [Same RZ account is fine] and get 100 max. This you can do as long as Poll is up and running. It may have changed now, but above is my experience :)

Okay. 100 is not the max. Here is proof I did 170 in 1 day.

http://awesomescreenshot.com/0b4xsn377

Max is 2 of each activity per RZ account. So 2 ultimate spaces, 2 polls, 2 members choices, 2 invite friends, and 2 more whatever will come up in the future. So do 2 ultimate now if you can before midnight.

You're welcome y'all ;)

Same as most days 1 of each type reward per account so today it's 100 point per FB -- 200 points total.

I'm going to TRY (if the app lets me) get 100 from ultimate today before 12AM CST, then another 100 after 12AM CST. I will do all my ultmates on 1 account because I want that one with the most certs and not spaced among all my RZ accounts :) HTH

I'm feeling a serious slickdeals effect over here. Reward Zone app is just simply not coming up at all right now. Really want to do that poll before midnight central time.

help1 02-16-2013 09:57 PM

App has crashed. Side note, has anyone tried to redeem multiple $5 gift cards from different rewards zone gift cards? Aka, can I make a ton of accoutns tonight, set it up for anotehr round of voting tomorrow, and make tons of $5 certificates and goto the store and redeem them?

Long as you don't try use them in same transaction. I wouldn't use 2 different names all on same day.

I heard early in this thread that you where able to use reward zone certificates from different accounts in the same transaction. It wouldn't make much sense for Best Buy to make a rule against this considering all certificates are technically valid credit. Now I am sure if you walked into the store and tried to use 10 certificates from 5 different accounts you might raise some red flags. But if you had 10 certificates from 2 different accounts and said the other account was your husband or wives then you should have no problem.

Good point and i agree with you. I did that and most of the times, i notice BB cashier don't even notice. They are more busy to punch in the reward zone number. In my case, they pull my certificate when i gave my RZ number. Rest i show it on my cell phone and they entered in the system, no question asked. Situation may be different for some, so don't take my words for granted :)

Jaggsta 02-16-2013 10:07 PM

When i went to use my Rewards i had the Printouts she asked for my phone number she didn't want to scan the papers.

Why don't you just cash out in 20 dollar certs to prevent this problem? o_0

Are you saving up for a laptop, TV, or tablet? I would just buy amazon gift cards and buy from there.

For the record... I love best buy now :D

Well, yes you can change to $20. But what I am trying to do is just make a ton of facebook accounts and accumulate a lot of $5's using different rewards accounts. Essentially I want to make a quick $200 in $5 credits taken from all different accounts. I'm going to assume this won't work.

I guess the next question to ask would be would multiple RZ certs from different accounts work on an ONLINE order? THat would make life simple for ppl.

If so, tomorrow is going to be a fun day.

just make each account get 25/50 in credits then get 25/50 dollar amazon kindle cards. Because of the long expiration dates (like 4 months), should be pretty easy to do even if you have many accounts. Stagger it out BRAH

bestbuy.com accounts are separate from reward zone account. So anyone can combine any bestbuy account with any reward zone account.

But , is it possible to use multiple reward zone accounts in the same transaction ? I don't think so ...

CrazyCoconut 02-16-2013 11:13 PM

I get the same error when I try to access my View Points and purchases page.They must be updating the site.

Lint42 02-17-2013 06:12 AM

Screw BB. I don't even want their free points. I don't want to step into any of their overpriced non-consumer friendly stores. Everyone have fun getting free stuff then somehow getting screwed from it.

No reason not to take the free points and buy Amazon gift cards with it. I feel the same about Best Buy as you do but I'm not gonna turn down free Amazon credit :woot:

so in other words, you'll tell us only if it reaches the point where you can never prove it worked in the first place?

Editing your post to pineapples doesnt remove the statement.

clearanceman 02-17-2013 08:01 AM

Surely the OP is wrong, $5 for 250 points? If so a 25 point survey is not worth doing for me. If you do everything listed, you get 100 points? Worth $1 at Best buy? No thanks...

Well i'm up $30 from these polls. You can do them on 2 facebook accounts for the same reward zone account. I'd say its worth it.

you haven't been paying attention. they've been doing this daily for several weeks now. plus some other polls that net another 25/50 points every so often.

a couple clicks a day for 25 points x 7 = 175. those who have two FB accounts get 50 points per RZ account, that's 350 points a week.

free is free.

a couple of clicks = all of what 30 seconds? if you're already on facebook (like i am), responding to messages and commenting on posts, its not too much more.

if that's too much for you, then i don't know what to say.

i can't name any company that does anything similar to this. while BB isn't the first choice for purchases these days, they do occasionally come out with a good deal or two, and this social promotion has been one of their better moves in a while (though the little fiasco with the fiscal year points expiring caused some ruckus).

jcknows0 02-17-2013 08:23 AM

so did they pull this app from facebook after the former owner pulled his takeover bid? Is that what this and the other sales were all about because the last few weeks since their last quarter closed has had some sucky sales. I wonder if they are even going to honor the $2800+ RZ CC points I accumulated last month.

Carry on. $5 for 500 points isn't worth it to me, but obviously it is worth it to some people. I'm the guy that bid on auctions I doubted I could ever win to get 5 cents Upromise click throughs back in the day. I made $250 doing it so imagine how much time I wasted. In my defense, that was almost 10 years ago, and it was cash, not Best Buy bucks. But still.... LOL.

currentuserjade 02-17-2013 08:29 AM

So, $90, every 3 months, free of charge, is too little for clicking a few links?...first world problems amaze me...

...and yes, I'm having problems getting into the FB RZ page. Have been, since 3am this morning.

No, 50 points (25 per facebook account) is exactly a dollar day, and though it initially has to be spent at Best Buy, you can use it to buy gift cards to many other places, including iTunes and Amazon.

The real irony is that clicking a link is a waste of your time but posting numerous completely incorrect arguments on the internet isn't. I'm going to go back to having a life now, bye.

They had a thing back in the day where you got 5 cents per auction bid. You didn't have to win the auction.

I'm trying to bail. The OP was written as 500 points was $5. So I didn't know 250 points was worth $5 and not $2.50

It hasn't to be spent at BB. Many SDers know how to do that.

kensteele 02-17-2013 09:13 AM

Last time I check the RZ polls area yesterday, they said Feb 17 was the day a new program would be added to the process....this is in addition to the everyday polls. Does anyone recall that? More opportunities to earn points.

my statement is just a generalization of the RZ program of turning my RZ points into Amazon GCs. i have not earned all those points from the surveys.

it's been going on since the beginning of this year i believe.

ok, i see. Yeah i have gotten a good amount of free money from bb too, mainly from the trade in and save. I still have a $20 giftcard left from the $5 for any small device promo they had, have $25 in reward zone certs saved up with 600 ($10) pending from a purchase and another $5 coming once i can do today's poll. $5 of that was extra points a csr gave me for expired points. Saving up to get a blender at a good price but might do the amazon thing if i cant find a good one at bb.

they are fixing the issues from the past week and a half.

I was able to briefly get in my account after I got an email for a $20 cert

when they did an adjustment on me last week, They issued a certificate for $10 (500 points), then took 100 points for the annual adjustment. Well when I logged in, they credited me back 600 points for that (so it put me over my $20 limit). The great thing, is that I still have the $10 certificate! Now considering they are doing the maintenance now, I am guessing that is still subject to change.

EDIT: Was able to answer the member's choice poll and get 25 points, but it seemed to lock up and now won't reload. Also got into the MyRZ website to veryify the points.

02/17/2013 Earned Points Facebook - Crowdsourcing - 25

JackD121 02-17-2013 10:51 AM

I got a new entry in my RZ account ...

when they did an adjustment on me last week, They issued a certificate for $10 (500 points), then took 100 points for the annual adjustment. Well when I logged in, they credited me back 600 points for that (so it put me over my $20 limit). The great thing, is that I still have the $10 certificate! Now considering they are doing the maintenance now, I am guessing that is still subject to change.

Yeah, that is more likely the issue. So maybe I can get even more out of this once they respond to my email.

Look at what he said above.

NYYSI 02-17-2013 11:24 AM

Looks like the site is down. Gotta remember to come back later and cash in on all of these points.

craigx42 02-17-2013 11:44 AM

Wow they gave me points with out even calling.

Annual maintenance points reimbursement - 887

CyberGuy 02-17-2013 11:47 AM

Is everyone getting rounded up to $20 with the annual reimbursement thing? If so, the ones who are already close to $20 before the reimbursement are getting screwed if they hadn't cashed out.

From what I can tell, their intention was to reimburse the points that they took away. But whatever "geek squad" genius that have that wrote the script to do this, screwed up. They are not issuing any certificates, they are simply reimbursing the points.

The key screw up on their part, is that if they issued a certificate when they adjusted your account (in my case, they adjusted me down 100 points, and issued a $10 certificate - 500 points), they are actually reimbursing the points they took away PLUS the points for that certificate (hence I got back 600 points instead of 100 and still keep that previous certificate).

If you did not get a certificate issued when they deducted your points, you are only getting back those points.

So it has nothing to do with how many points you have now. I had 600, they reimbursed 600, so my account automatically generated the $20 certificate and I still have 200 points.


On a different note, just found this on their facebook page (see attachment)

JuMpMaN6235 02-17-2013 12:06 PM

I only got 100 points reimbursed...

tam421602 02-17-2013 12:21 PM

one acct got 200 points and one account got 100...

jjmai 02-17-2013 12:30 PM

didn't get any reimbursement on the myrewardzone site.
And their facebook app is still down.

jonse 02-17-2013 12:34 PM

My account got 225 points reimbursed, they only took away 49 points for their annual adjustment.

riotxheart 02-17-2013 01:05 PM

My account says it's Premier Silver Status now? I've probably only spent around $100 there this year.

dotgone 02-17-2013 01:38 PM

Not only did I not get any points back, my $5 certificate is missing.

pall79 02-17-2013 01:57 PM

Have 2 RZ accts .. My acct i lost 212 points last week .. So called them last week as suggested by many in SD .. CS reimbursed 250 points .. 2nd acct (my wife's) lost 45 points this week .. Did not do anyhthing .. Today see they reimbursed 445 points .. Had enough points now to issue a $ 10 certificate .. Cant complian :) ...

doltran 02-17-2013 02:19 PM

Lost 175, got 375.

Not sure if it's coincidence or not, but 375 equals the 175 I lost plus (25 x 8) surveys I did in between when I lost the points and when I got the reimbursement.

This is what happened to me as well. I lost all of my points, but they recently showed up (both lost points and survey points). Congrats to the people who were able to call and get more points added to their accounts due to this error. But all of my points are now accounted for, so no big deal.

lost 207, got 412 back + 250 points ($5 certificate for calling) :lmao:
edit: ahh guess it all made sense in the end.

Hmm checked my account, it looks like i got 3 entries for 2/15 for the poll and the points have been included and counted for (everything matches up)

I'll try doing three again today... we'll see how things work out.

You have to go to the physical Best Buy store with printed rewards certificates to buy an amazon card. You can't buy it online.

Grateful11 02-17-2013 02:34 PM

Can't get the page to load, never had this problem with BB and FaceBook before.

IT hasn't been working today. Might come up at 6:30 est.

JerryW9777 02-17-2013 02:42 PM

Has the BB Rewards page been down all day? I have tried all day and still can not get to the facebook poll.

totalkev 02-17-2013 02:44 PM

They just reinstated 566 points after 147 expired earlier this month. I quickly cashed them in for a $10 certificate, in case they actually get their act together at some point. I'm up to $40 in rewards certs so far this year without actually buying anything.

moneysavesu 02-17-2013 02:45 PM

Read the wiki people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweepaholic 02-17-2013 02:45 PM

I asked multiple times they wont reinstate any for me

currentuserjade 02-17-2013 02:50 PM

The BB site is undergoing maintenance, read the front page. They say around 5pm CST, but I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a little longer, cuz once they get it fixed, they are gonna get hammered on the site.

Mofo Jones 02-17-2013 02:54 PM

I can get onto Reward Zone via BB's website, but no go for the FB app just yet.

IgorekNYC 02-17-2013 03:03 PM

Hmm... usually they pull this crap when they realize they are losing too much money, like with that $50 off $100 coupon that was supposed to be valid for a week but was pulled after only 1 day...

They NEVER do for me, two years in a row I have lost and those were from ACTUAL purchases.

Can this be done with multiple facebook accounts on the same REWARDZONE? IF yes, how many is the max?

THe FB page is down for me as well. ALL DAY.

you can do max 2 facebook polls per day on one reward zone account(meaning two different facebook accounts.) or 100 points total for the day.

think that was a typo.

Point Breakdown per Facebook account (if you have two, then you get double)
Poll: 25 points (daily)
Members Choice: 25 points (every few days)
Design Your Home Challenge: Living Room was 50 points, Kitchen = ? (weekly gaps)

some days they have more points given like today there is a second poll up that gives 25 points also the living room challenge gave 50 points and now the kitchen one is another 50 so for today you can get 100 points in total from just one facebook accounts. therefore for today you can get max 200 points if you have two facebook accounts but since you can only collect 100 a day its better not to do all the polls today you will not get full points.

haha "today" ... wonder if BB will extend this till tomorrow? I hope so, but don't expect it.

Oh question: can we use the same FB accounts to vote on different RZ accounts. So like I have two FB accounts and two RZ accounts. Can i just go vote using the same FB accounts on my two different RZ accounts?

Wait, two polls a day? How two? I thought its ONE poll per day? I know its probably discussed a million times already and I do appreciate your help. Its NOT in the WIKI.

members choice poll is a second poll they put up every few days or so. It is different from the usual day poll they put up everyday. For today its members choice + regular poll + you can create the kitchen thing all three give points.

when you sign in using another FB account, you can "retake" the poll and you get the points too.

oh i tried that method, but since RZ was down and really slow i couldn't use the contact us form, and i got a "bot" email that said "sry we will be back by 5 PM CST or whatever...

esquire415 02-17-2013 03:25 PM

I went to my RewardZone account at BestBuy.com to send them the email
https://myrewardzone.bestbuy.com/contactus

Don't bother calling, they'll just tell you to wait. Chat is useless too as they would just say they have no access to their Facebook page from their computer.

Anyway, I just realized that they gave me 150 points adjustment. This is on top of the 500 points I received for calling the other day about taking away 139 points from me.

clearanceman 02-17-2013 03:27 PM

Wonder if they will ever bring back the McDonalds Best Buy bucks? I'm guessing no.

help1 02-17-2013 03:28 PM

dang it. today was gonna be a good pay day. Oh well.

mrm16 02-17-2013 03:29 PM

so no free points today? oh well.....hope they will extend the ultimate kitchen poll for one more day !
