It will be interesting to see what happens at Best Buy over the next couple of days.

Not everybody reads or even knows about Slickdeals. EEK! There are many
people who got the original coupon in their email legitimately from Best Buy.
I was one of those. At the time, I didn't think much of the coupon, bu then I saw
this thread yesterday morning and rushed to Best Buy to TAKE ADVANTAGE
of it. All I got was $200 of Amazon Kindle gift cards for $100. (8 $25 cards in
two transactions, which the manager approved with a smile)

It is now 7AM EST on Tuesday. I'm looking at the original coupon that was in
my email. Best Buy corporate still hasn't sent me a 2nd email telling me about
the revised terms and conditions. If I had not read this Slickdeals thread, I
woudl probably be going to Best Buy today, only to be disppointed or p**sed
of when I get there. I'm sure hundreds, if not thousands, of other customers
will be as well.

My sister-in-law, a nice little old lady, got the coupon in her email. She became
a RewardZone silver last month. She was talking about getting a Cuisinart
food processor($130?) at Best Buy tomorrow. I stopped her and told her about
this thread. Imagine how angry her face turned. Frown Probably even angrier if she
showed up at Best Buy with the coupon. The poor cashier will learn what "hell
hath no fury like a woman scorned" means. In this case, scorned by Best Buy.
She is a like Judge Judy and Sarah Palin combined into one person. She once
made a Macy's store manager(a 6-ft guy) burst into tears for not accepting a coupon.
