BestBuy, reminding me to use my new Rewards Zone certificates before they expire. Intersting since I haven't been to a BestBuy in over 3 years.... I am pretty sure those certificates have LONG since expired!
was Best Buy's automated system nagging to shop at their stores again and use my reward card. I've stopped shopping there months ago because they make it a huge choir to price match (I bring in the other stores sale ad or printed from website and they don't believe either to be legit so have to make *several* phone calls). Screw them, I hope they go out of business!
They have an expiration date on them. My problem is the bait and switch of the program. If you have one for 10 bucks and buy a 4.99 dvd - they won't except them. You must spend more they they are valued at (that is what they told me at the counter when paying). I said no thanks and walked out. I completely understand not giving money back (that makes sense) but no credit or new balance is dumb. I also hate spending them because their DVDS are way overpriced. 22.95 for a DVD! Same one is 14.95 at target - it is just a waste but whatever. To save enough rewards for a video game for example in the amount of time (before expiration) is very difficult.
Got a second call today on my cell phone. I have never walked into a Best Buy. After the first call I was assured they would remove my phone number from their list. Today I got another call. When I called back they couldn't direct me to who called. I let them know that since I work nights I don't appreciate calls soon after falling asleep. I now have a whistle to blow into the phone. I am sure they will remember when they get that response. It is enough for me to make sure I never deal with Best Buy.
In CT and many other states it is illegal for a store issuing a gift certificate to have it expire EVER. It is another form of the buyer's money, and money doesn't expire. Nice of Best Buy to remind that you have one at all, but don't accept expiration if it's illegal in your state for a store to 'expire' your certificate and keep the money.
Got a called from this number, heavy accent and bad connection. Said he was from Best Buy and had talked to me this am. Said they had a security crash and that was why my WebRoot did not get updated. While I have been in contact with the Geek Squad, I didn't actually talk to someone, it was all done via online texting and had nothing to do with WebRoot. I told this person I wasn't sure what was going on n would check it out. He said ok n hung up fast.
Best Buy, left robot voicemail with reminder that Reward certificate was getting close to the expiration date (which is legit!). Nice reminder, but their automated voice system totally butchered my last name. ;-)
Best buy Reward Zone cert is no a gift card - it is a coupon earned when making purchases at Best Buy. Members subscribe to this program and are (or should be) aware of the programs rules. Laws that restrict expiration on gift cards would not apply.
I got a call from this number. They said the worked for some business and had my application. I researched the business to see if I could find anything and found nothing. Heavy Indian accent and sounded like they were reading from a prompt. I've blocked the number since than.
This number registers on my phone as Best Buy Express. Call lasted 28 Seconds. Representative wanted to send me some information on a job to work from home and wanted my email address. I said No thank you and the representative hung up on me.
