One Single item must be more than $100 - Not true according to some
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 Kindle Paperwhite WiFi without manager override
