wikipost 02-18-2013 02:02 AM

This post can and should be edited by users like you :)
 
25 points = $0.50 if you account gets the points and they do not have a glitch

Anyway to get "Best Buy" alerts without the word "facebook" included?
"Best Buy"| bestbuy -facebook
won't work for posts like this where facebook isn't actually written other than in the link.

LINK: https://myrewardzone.bestbuy.com/...k/userpoll
Click on User poll tab

Best buy did not fix it until 5am EST. I think its down again, sorry :(

25 free rewards points
250 points = $5 gift card

Rutherford B. Hayes had a lot of "firsts" in the White House. Which one was the most interesting?

Ultimate Space is not live yet, says live in 2 days

No room designer thing either. 50 points is better than nothing though

Best Buy Poll for 02/18/2013 - FB Needed - 25 Reward zone Points
 
1 Attachment(s)
Warning, some people reported getting 0 points, but you sometimes still get credit. (A glitch in the app)
Might be safer to do this poll after Midnight CST if you have done a lot of polls!
MAX 2 polls/ultimate space/member's choice activities per day!

Also, new RZ accounts take at least 1 day before they start earning points so don't fret!


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



Your recent transactions may be delayed through 2/23.
Lots of people reported getting an "Annual maintenance points reimbursement" on 2/17 if you previously lost points.

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.

Looks like Ultimate Kitchen and Member's Choice were pushed back a few days (Look at the countdown for Ultimate Kitchen).
Better than missing out! Coming soon in less than 2 days.

People have been using 2 facebook accounts to access the same RZ account. My wife and I each use our facebook accounts, but login to the app using the same RZ account. That way, we get the points on the same account.

I see it as another $50 spent at Best Buy. Each dollar you spend at Best Buy gives you 1 reward point. So to get 50 reward points you would have to spend $50.

Is that okay to do? I dont want to lose all my points, I've been doing one poll per day. But if its not against the rules, I'd love to do it on 2 accounts and get twice the points.

Same here. Why do people say it's back online when it's not? To waste my time trying?

So I guess we'll miss today's poll too, and then tomorrow's... how hard is it for this joke of a company to get their website working or is nobody working on the weekend and everyone on vacation today?

It took me a couple tries, and even then, it took much longer than usual to load up and to actually take my poll votes. However, I did get the 50 points posted to my account.

redonkalous 02-18-2013 06:20 AM

There's really no use in making new threads every time it goes up since it goes down ten minutes later. But I expect new threads regardless.

I just tried several times the same way I've tried on days past, and I always ended up with a URL in my address bar that says "errorprovider=" or something like that. I'm getting tired of wasting my time retrying on that page. I'll wait a while longer and hope they can finally get their act together.

purple 02-18-2013 06:23 AM

haha bestbuy has become smart. no more free points.

bequettc1 02-18-2013 06:23 AM

Not working for me either, tried many times and it never loads the page.... maybe I'll try later

Yeah, I got that same one a couple times. Like I said, I just tried a couple times more until it loaded. If mine hadn't loaded by now, I'd probably suggest waiting until later in the day.

smidge1 02-18-2013 06:26 AM

I agree. People love to make new threads on SD.

If people simply post "it's working now" or "it's dead now" periodically in this thread, that would be sufficient.

kishlay80 02-18-2013 06:39 AM

Is the link working yet? I couldn't take the poll even yesterday.

shaosam 02-18-2013 06:40 AM

How long are they going to keep doing this daily poll thing for? I've already got $10 in RZ certs, surely this has to end at some point.

cupcake42 02-18-2013 06:46 AM

I'm glad I got in on it today!

Good luck everyone.

I've perused many threads about the daily polls and nobody has ever posted that they know when it ends. If Worst Buy keeps their web page down 90% of the time going forward as it seems to be since yesterday, then it is effectively over already for most people.

One thing I can tell you having had a lot of unpleasant dealings with Worst Buy CS is that probably only a small handful of people in the entire company know when the poll is really going to end, and Worst Buy should get awards and medals for its lack of communication between departments whenever any promo is run. So if it's business as usual, probably nobody else at RZ has any clue when the polls will end or if or when the web page will start working again.

I've been amazed in the past how you call up a RZ rep and most of the time they'll be 100% clueless about whatever promo is going on, I ask them to ask others nearby who are also usually clueless, and I normally give up. Every once in a while you find someone who knows something, but it's a rarity.

Sweepaholic 02-18-2013 06:55 AM

OMG do we really need to post this every day? Im sure one thread would be enough!

Jase2004 02-18-2013 06:56 AM

it was up this morning...

Teesus87 02-18-2013 06:57 AM

I assume they won't end the daily poll because it gives people a reason to go to the store and shop. They may end up making it a weekly poll worth 50 points instead one every day worth 25/day. I hope they don't get rid of it.. Daddy needs a new TV!

3 more months , until May 18 at least, i think.

Actually , i am guessing based on their ULTIMATE CHOICE schedule. Users will be done with designing the whole home (dining/bedroom/kitchen....) on May 18th.

Anyone order online either shipping or instore pickup with a reward zone certificate lately with no issues (within the last 24 hours)?

Just wondering since I placed an order and no updates. Wonder if it has to do with their messed up Reward Zone system as a whole...

I placed an order yesterday morning and used my certificate without problems. I also received the pick up email yesterday as well.

Anyone know if there's a way to not issue a certificate once you hit $20?

only way is to become premier silver so you can bank it, however you can try calling customer service and ask them to reissue you the points and take away the certificate. (Why?) So that you can extend the expiration. Just a thought

Edit: Wow it almost went through, i got to the page and said there was an error processing the request, i tried clicking on the poll and got in the endless loop again. Maybe some progress is being made!

You could always use the $20 GC to buy something then return it. It does take 1-2 weeks before the points get put back into your account though.

If you go to the URL directly, it takes you to the main BBY FB page. If you try to search for it, it doesn't exist.

Nice...

shyam09 02-18-2013 11:20 AM

Best buy did not fix it until 5am EST. I think its down again, sorry :(

25 free rewards points
250 points = $5 gift card

Rutherford B. Hayes had a lot of "firsts" in the White House. Which one was the most interesting?
FIRST PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY
FIRST TO USE A TYPEWRITER
FIRST TO USE A TELEPHONE
STARTED THE WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL

Ultimate Space is not live yet, says live in 2 days
Members choice says live 2/17 but is not active yet either

Damn it! I missed two User Polls already because of this BB (intentional?) screwup. A total of 100 points.

NHL22 02-18-2013 01:10 PM

How dare they remove the Reward Zone App from FB! Now how am I going to get free money to buy cool gadgets?

esquire415 02-18-2013 01:13 PM

So lame that they now reduced the User Poll points to 10. That would be more work to get to 250 pts let alone 1250 pts to get $25 Amazon GCs.

Site is down again probably because lots of SDers accessing the app page while they were trying to "fix" it.

Just got in on the site. 10 points for all that button refreshing, thanks BB, NOT!

mattford11 02-18-2013 01:23 PM

Looks like it's only 1 per RZ acct too - tried w/ both of ours and the poll had already been completed.

its back

mehrab012 02-18-2013 01:25 PM

App is live now. Just checked it. But 10 points only for the current poll

mehrab012 02-18-2013 01:28 PM

You can take a little risk , and skip the current poll. Best buy mobile's polls are always of 10 points. If you are lucky , the 25 dollar poll will be up sometime later.

A lot of "if"s though...

grouchymorning 02-18-2013 01:29 PM

I still think that the fb app is buggy since the 10 point poll appears to be the mobile app poll and not the regular 25 point poll.

So buggy. Taking forever just to earn even 10 pts

JRJR 02-18-2013 01:33 PM

Thought I would would finally get 250 today with the 25 points, but 10 points only brought me tantalizingly close at 247. I guess, as usual, the overuse of more than one poll per account made them step it back. At least the greedy didn't kill the program completely, yet, like they did the WB Insider Rewards program.

chimmy826 02-18-2013 01:36 PM

Says I already answered the "Best Buy Mobile App" poll, even though I didn't do any new polls today. I think this was a former poll and not new.

rking0122 02-18-2013 01:37 PM

Well this was pretty cool while it lasted! Got just enough to get one more $5 certificate.

Lord_Riku 02-18-2013 01:38 PM

What's really weird is that earlier this morning I took a 25 point poll. Then the site went down and now they have a 10 point poll. Maybe its just an extra one for today and the 25 will be back tomorrow.

Oh I got the impression that they permanently changed it to 10 points a poll. I still have had no luck accessing the app though.

rking0122 02-18-2013 01:49 PM

I really don't understand what Best Buy is doing with this marketing. Just as soon as they have an idea people seem to like, they change it to make everyone mad at them again. Unless they're going for the "no press is bad press" approach, this just seems incredible to me.

And why the hell do they think paying Amy Poehler to be a spokeswoman will help?

esquire415 02-18-2013 01:51 PM

Got in with my 1st FB account for only 10pts. Still can't get in with my 2nd FB account, redirecting me to the BB FB page

CrazyCoconut 02-18-2013 01:54 PM

How are you guys getting in if the page does not exist?

NoBantheSnowman 02-18-2013 02:01 PM

you all shouldn't worry since it's free points.

im sure it'll be back soon

keung 02-18-2013 02:06 PM

If the marketing people know what they are doing
They should get the RZ silver member 25 points and give regular member 10 points

Silver member are people spent money with them!

Geronemo3 02-18-2013 02:40 PM

Yup, it's back on and got 10 points instead of 25 points.
Can't complain because it's free. 25 points was a steal.
25 points meant $15 certificate/month
10 points meaning around a $5 certificate/ month.

I am sure a lot of ppl are gonna rant, but hey which store gives out free point?
Only BB.

popyu 02-18-2013 02:46 PM

esquire415 02-18-2013 03:16 PM

BB just announced that they are Pricematching (pre-tax) all local stores from now on and 9 other online stores to prevent people from "showrooming".

Will not stop me from buying online because I will only buy from them if they PM with the tax.

beachmouse 02-18-2013 03:45 PM

10 points a day for a single question is still a pretty decent freebie. Still better than Audience Rewards which is only 2 points per trivia question, and you end up with 2-3 sets of 6 questions per month.

best buy sells amazon kindle gcs for $25 and $50. you can use your reward zone certificates toward them

wavetwister 02-18-2013 03:57 PM

At least, if they change it to 10 points, they will keep offering the poll til mid may. I never expected them to keep handing out 25 points per day for this long.

I've walked away with $10 so far and added a 2nd facebook a few days ago. 90 more days would give you $20 per facebook account till my guess when the party stops!

kishlay80 02-18-2013 04:17 PM

So typical for Worst Buy. Just like coupons they issue, such as the Mastercard coupon, where as time goes on and the hours pass, Worst Buy starts to reneg on it piece by piece and worsen the deal until it's dead. Issue a $50 off $100 coupon good for a week with very few restrictions. Then start restricting it to no GCs. Next restrict it to 1 per person. Then restrict it to items not on sale. Then expire it early. That's the Worst Buy way. Never issue a correct coupon to start with... always issue something you never intended and then keep backpedaling.

It reminds me of Worst Buy saying in Darth's voice "I have altered the deal. Pray I don't alter it further". And we quote Lando saying "this deal is getting worse all the time".

The RZ was worth 5% when it started, then I think 3%, then 2%. The polls were worth 25 points x 2, now 10 x 2, and soon they'll be worth 0. In fact, it's not worth it for 10 x 2 because it takes about 3 minutes per account to get through all the FB overhead garbage and Worst Buy's site is slow to respond.

One certainty with Worst Buy is that whatever promos they have going on, they will keep reducing them until they're worthless. Same with their return policy which is going to 15 days. I wonder how long until they take pricematching online retailers away again.

No kidding. Sometimes the SD crowd is like a swarm of locusts. Attacking a store until it's stripped of anything of value and then moving on to the next one. If a 50-point survey popped up these crybabies would be all over it like flies on sh*t.

Sad really. I put in 10 good years at BBY back in the 90's. Made alot of money. Worked my ass off. Glad I sold my free stock when it was up there.

Astro7x 02-18-2013 05:47 PM

So glad I got my 25 points in this morning when it was actually working.

I do not understand the approach to this marketing campaign. 50 cents a day to take a quick poll? 20 cents is still not bad... I'm assuming that too many people jumped on the free points train and broke the app.

soloz2 02-18-2013 05:48 PM

I was never able to get on the last few days and I just tried now but no go. The page is completely different and there aren't any polls?

Not sure why it takes you 3 minutes to do the polls, i could do under a minute on 2 accounts. Sounds to me like your connection is just slow

25 free rewards points
250 points = $5 gift card

Hmm my survey page is showing the old q "have you downloaded the best buy app" which I already answered days ago. Sucks that I am missing out on easy points because the Best Buy web dev team SUCKKS at their job. At the very least I called the Best Buy # that someone suggested and they were nice enough to gift me 250 points as an apology.

MassEffect757 02-18-2013 06:58 PM

Lol we'll the bb app was down the whole time to fix the loophole of getting double points using 2 Facebook accounts, 10 pts/day is not worth my time compared to 50.

bigballs 02-18-2013 07:05 PM

It looks like my plan to get $1000 worth of Amazon GC will have to be scaled back to only about $400. I am 3/5 of way there but will stop once I get there. Not worth time opening more fake FB accounts.

no30fan 02-18-2013 07:14 PM

Well my 300 pts from Dec were wiped out per RZ rules so I called and gave me my 300pts back and another 250 for my inconvenience....wtg!!

But as far as I know they haven't changed anything/ That question about the Mobile App has been around forever and has always been 10 points.

The critical moment will be in a hour or so when the next daily poll is put up. If that one is 10 points, then I'll sad but it's still free points in the end.

true 10 points is better than nothing, but now we'll have tons of posts from those people who complained about wasting their time for 25 points, now complaining about what a big waste of time this is since they are only getting 10 points... lol

They didn't really change it "yet". This poll has been around since the start. It was always worth 10 points. It shows up briefly every night when they are changing polls. I did this poll weeks ago. So, in reality, there are no current activities in the app.

Now I will say, the kitchen space was open briefly last night and it was 25 points instead of 50.

At this point, we just need to wait and see what they do with it, I posted a question on their forum to see if they plan on providing some kind of explanation about the changes.

Umm, the poll that is there now for 10 points has been there from the beginning. There is no indication that the daily polls (once they start them up again) are going to be reduced to 10 points.

Not sure exactly how giving away tens of thousands of dollars a day is keeping a company afloat.

While many of us on slickdeals just want to cash out on Amazon or something, many people will use these certificates to buy higher priced items.

For the same reason why they announced the price matching policy now permanent.

I got the 25 poll points on one account today just fine. Now if points.com would just get their Priority Club issue fixed so I could move the BB points toward my vacation fund.

No. I did a poll in each facebook account and both stated 0 points. Oh well, they are probably clamping down on individuals like me as almost $100 in free certificates in the last couple of weeks. Plus I already had $40 in certificates ready to use before this poll points started. If they keep it up I'll just open up an account in my spouses name and add two facebook accounts.:bounce:
