Dave

@Dan: what credit card should i use?

Mark

@Aron:
They only charged you $50 for $100 card or is it a credit on statement?

steve

tried using it on 5th ave in nyc. Cashier said that corporate sent store email that it was a fake coupon and it should not be accepted. oh well.

Bill

Did not work. They said it was fake

Dan

@steve:
Funny because Best Buy sent it out and it’s being hosted by them.

joey

Eli

Rt 3. Manager won’t let me use it

Shira

Worked for me at the best buy in paramus, nj. Got an amazon giftcard. Thanks!

joey

it is a valid coupon but they are saying it now excludes gift cards and their POS system wont accept it

Nebo

tried at the best buy in freehold. Manager said he had no way to override it to deducts $50 from the purchase without detucting $50 off the gift card 🙁

Gary

Purchased $1000 worth of amazon gift cards at Best Buy on Upper West Side. Even bought a few with a Visa and it still worked. Thanks Dan!

Jacob

Caesar’s Bay Best Buy said it’s legit. However, must find a participating store….

Steveo (one word)

@Gary in 1 transaction?

BUY

@Gary: HOW DID U DID WAS IT IN ONE TRANSACTION???

Gary

@Steveo Nope. Separate transactions for each $100.

Steveo (one word)

@Gary. kool. same coupon though?

Yossi

Can Visa GCs be cashed out at ATMs?

sholom

I have a friend who just tried it in lakewood and didnt work. they had correction notices

Adam

No stores in baltimore will honor the coupon on any gift card

Tim T

Best buy Atlantic center & Chelsea at 23 st. Honor it

Yaks

@eli
Which store on rt 3 is it the one in little falls New Jersey or the one in seacacus?

Yossi.

Just left Best Buy at 62nd and Broadway. Just bought $400 worth of amazon gift cards in 4 different transactions at 3 different cashiers. Manager finally caught on it and the only “reason” he could give me is that it says “No copies” on the coupon and that he couldn’t scan it anymore. Thanks Dan and sb5917!

Anyone try the best buy on bay parkawy

Mr

@Norma: @Bill: ya i am in best buy now and they said it was fake

John

@Shira:

@shira,

How did this work for you? I tried and they told me no? Please let me know who did this for you?

Thank you.

Gary

@Steveo (one word): Yep, just printed multiple copies.

Miles

If you wanted something excluded from this list, couldn’t you just buy anything totaling $100, then return it for a $100 store credit and voila! Purchase anything you want now with no restrictions?

Yossi

Brick is not honoring

Hans

Limited to one coupon per customer in the DC area.

Tim T

Any New York branches sell visa gift cards ?

Avi

5th and 44th in NYC honoring on select items. No movies even though it not on fine print. Called corporate and they said they never heard of such a coupon…

moshe

1. if someone used at store, and scanned that copy, would it make same coupon code no longer valid? (as a photocopy)

2. you buy a card of 100 and pay 50, or buy for 100 and pay 100 and get some 50 credit? what form is credit?

TY

Anon

I was told kindle was “airtime” cards and didnt count after cashier had to call mngr because $50 didn’t come off.

Derick

Tried at my local best buy. Would honor it but not on gift cards.

hi

@Anonymous: let me no

DJE

Does anyone know how to tell Dan about a deal so he can post it for everyone? Does he want people to email him? Tweet? Anyone know? He isn’t posting a deal I posted in the comments

Yaakov

Bought $2400 in Kindle cards (can be used on anything on Amazon). Cashier had to manually take the $50 off each transaction. Bought every GC card they had.

Mocha

One in bk said they just got an email to not honor them.

Eli

Can someone explain to me how they get Amazon gift card with this coupon? Isn’t the coupon for 50$ off after spending 100$??

hey

@Mocha:
which one?

chaim

@ mocha which store in brooklyn

mclovin

just tried best buy in kings plaza. didn’t work. it took 50$ off the gift card

Anonymous

Does anyone no if u pay 50 or get back 50 and pay 100

Tim T

Caesar bay by bay pkwy. Said not honoring

h

50 off the total bill of 100 so you pay 50

Fargus

If they refuse to honor, have them bring up the coupon *on Best Buy’s website*. They aren’t going to claim that someone hacked the BB domain, are they? Don’t allow them to refuse to honor something actually put out by BB.

drsp

I just successfully bought amazon gift cards. The register took the coupon, but took $0.00 off the price. A manager came and overode it. I’m not sure if this will scale for me as POS is not giving the discount.

A

My friends went to Ceasars bay Best Buy and they told them only for those who received email, anyone have the same thing happen?

Yaakov

@drsp
That is what happened to me, but the cashier manually did the coupon by pressing F7. Did not need a manager override.

chanie

i got a $50 gc to best buy and a $50 gc to amazon this morning at best buy in howell with no problem. thanks!

Eli

HOW DO YOU GET AN AMAZON GIFT CARD WITH THIS COUPON?????

henche

I don’t own a mastercard. Maybe I’ll buy a mastercard GC from somewhere, then going here to do this.

Kenny

I tried buying it, and the cashier said that people have been trying all day, and it didn’t work. The manager claimed that gift cards “are not an actual product we sell” and that’s why it wasn’t working.

chaim

@yaakov which branch

chanie

@eli they sell amazon gc in best buy

Lakewooder

UPDATE: It worked for me in Brick NJ but many other DansDeals,com readers came in and they are now NOT HONORING IT FOR GIFT CARDS IN EITHER BRICK OR HOWELL.

Best buy in westberry long island not honoring it for gift cards

Upset

At best buy in Owings Mills, MD the manager would not honor it (jerk) he said it was only for the use with the best buy master card, not just any master card

Anonymous

Went to two different BB stores and attempted to buy amazon.com gift cards. Coupon does not work when scanned in by a cashier, was also informed that corporate said not to honor these as they are fake 🙁

Miles

I live in Campbell, ca. Which one??? The store on Almaden expressway?

Naomi

Just tried in Richfield, MN. They tried honoring the coupon, but it wouldn’t work on Amazon Kindle gift cards. Worked perfectly on other items in store.

Michael

Doesn’t work in California on Visa or Amazon Cards!! DamN!

Chay007

Just bought a $100 iTunes GiftCard for $50 in Los Angeles!!! Thank you b

Eric

No luck on the gift cards (Tampa, FL), but it’s still a great deal since Apple products are NOT excluded (other than iPods), and no exclusion on any software.

Anonymous

tried threee stores in south florida and each store’s manager told me it won’t work on gift cards!!

Michael

@Anonymous:
Fake they aren’t. The store manager was able to pull up the deals in their system and see the info at my store.

Tim T

What do they mean ” one per household” ? How would they know if I went in ten minutes later to a different store & did it again ?

jack

lakewood it was huge waste of time also someone came in with a double stroller with 2 kids and i think they left a kids shoe there

sara

just went to the one in union sq (nyc) and the manager said best buy corporation retracted offer & that they cant honor it

thingywingy

@Lakewooder: did it work for them for non gift cards?

zee

Which south florida stores did u try?

Anon

Tried visa, amazon, and even itunes. They wouldn’t honor on either. I probably should have bought a small item and an amazon card togethger with it without asking first. Once I asked then they all knew there was something up. Oh well.

lynda

I tried using my MasterCard to purchase two $50.00 gift cards for Amazon and Best Buy would NOT honor the dansdeals coupon even though it says on the coupon “not including gift cards.”

I am the only who can lose money – Purchased what I thought was $400 from Palisades Mall. Paid $350 + 5.95 handling fee for each card – And I just checked the balance on the cards and its only $350 – I lost 11.95 – Cashier screwed up the coupon

Gary

Doesn’t work when you try and redeem it for a gift card.

mrs.

Why not look for other awesome ways to use the coupon? I bought a samsung galaxy 2 tablet, retail 349. Got it as an open box item (brand new, everything included), was reduced to 198, plus this week they’re giving 10% off open box items..plus $50 coupon for a grand total of $130!! That’s a deal! Thanks Dan!

@Gary: Paramus Park & Garden State are both not working. Didnt Try Palisades but I assume not working there either.

chani

I tried buying a phone that was ninety nine ninety nine. They didn’t allow it and they claim that it has to b one item above a hundred. Oh well

Moshe

Tried in Pallisades Mall, I tried getting a digital pic frame for $80 and a camera case for $30. They said that it’s only for non sale items which means it can’t have a yellow price tag. I asked the person behind the counter if there’s a single item in the store that’s not “on sale” they said prob not. Anyway I asked what the non-sale price of the digital pic frame is, they said $100 so I asked if I can get it on the non-sales price and apply the coupon, they said no 🙁

Moshe

My wife went to BB in Riverdale, NJ at 5 PM, she couldn’t buy Amazon gift cards (they said no gift cards would work), but she was able to use the coupon to buy a DSLR lens, even though the customer service cashier didn’t think it would work since it was “one of the exclusions”. Luckily it did.

double u

Worked for me for 2 transactions of 2 amazon gift cards each.

Didn’t work for gift or prepaid cards in Detroit area at 3:10pm — manager refused to honor.

The Dallas BestBuy off of 75 at Park Lane would not permit amazon kindle purchases, but they did honor the coupon for a regular purchase of $100 or more, but it required a manager to come over to approve.

Bacc

Tried at 5:30 pm Staten island store, NYC. Coupon was tried earlier

on gift cards and cash register would not accept them.

Well YMMV is often the case when it’s really better than they intended.

Timmer1001

in San Antonio TX, they had a correction notice up that required $100 single item purchase, but no mention of a gift card. “But, we meant to exclude gift card”. They made up rules as they went along, so I just left and I am complaining to CS on their website right now

Didn’t work in Miami Beach. Manager said a gift card is not an item.

I don’t wish to post the following to the Best Buy Facebook page using my Facebook account because I carefully curate my Facebook presence for affiliation reasons; but I sent it via private message to Mastercard’s presence on Facebook. Would somebody who agrees with the gist of what I said post it to the Best Buy Facebook page without attributing it to me?

———-

Dear Mastercard social media personnel,

Please escalate to corporate management the fiasco which Best Buy has created by issuing a coupon for $50 off $100 in purchases with a Mastercard with clearly listed product inclusions and exclusions valid 1/21 to 1/27, and then in a single day (1/21), re-issuing many changes to the terms & conditions (including but not limited to dates of validity, products included, products excluded, requirement of a single item priced at or over $100 instead of a total transaction at or over $100) and opening up accusations of false advertising and bait and switch.

The original coupon can be found at:
http://image.emailinfo2.bestbuy.com/lib/fef41d77766c04/m/43/13729-2_MasterCardPromo_Coupon_final.pdf

I recognize that the Best Buy coupon asserts that Mastercard is not the sponsor of this promotion nor does Mastercard have liability, but what Mastercard DOES have and cannot disclaim is the memory of thousands of customers subject to miserable customer service experiences thanks to Best Buy employees and store managers handling this fiasco from Best Buy corporate marketing as best they can but because corporate has provided such confusing and poor guidance, leaving everybody confused and angry.

As a corporation, I expect that you carefully manage your brand image. Your brand has gotten dragged through the mud through this incident.

– Sincerely, a Mastercard customer who is looking at his other credit cards with the pretty Visa logo

Anonymous

I’ve just added this sentence in private message to Mastercard:

Perhaps Mastercard can provide Best Buy some assistance in promotional error recovery crisis management.

Sarah

terms were revised. was one day only. no gift cards. and its over. see ddf link.

tt

went to Atlantic mall in brooklyn , manager wouldn’t let me buy a single item over $100 with it(lg monitor $140), it was prob. b/c it was on sale as one of the commenters above mentioned. btw he also hid all the gc’s in the store, except the BB ones.

milechazzer

One more exclusion they through into the mix (at least when I tried to make a purchase) – No sale items. I spent 40min at my local store trying to make a purchase, and came to the checkout/counter no less than 4 times. Each time I tried to make a purchase, they made up a new exclusion. Some of their new exclusions were included in their “correction sign” in the store, but most of them weren’t, and the manager seemed to just be making them up as he went along. It’s disgraceful how they handled this, and I would say that I’m not going to shop at Best Buy anymore, but I never would have regardless.

dave

i called bb customer service and they said not able to use on gift card bec it says excludes cash back and gift cards are incuded in cash back

milechazzer

Is there any way to return an item that I bought from Best Buy wiht this coupon, and receive a store credit for the full price?

HL

Hey PPL I just chatted with a best buy rep, and he told me that offer will expire today, so hurry up…

milechazzer

@HL:

You may have a hard time with that, since they seem to have told all of their store employees that it expired last night

What time did u do it? I was there later and they were not honoring it for anything….

@milechazzer
No. Best buy (being terrible with customer service as always) has a very strict return policy if u have no receipt they will not take if back period. If u give them the receipt they will only give u back what u paid and put that on your MasterCard.

Yaks, isnt it just fair? you want to scam them and for them to agree?
