    I got an email this morning about a 2 hour private shopping event this Sunday, 7:30-9:30 PM for RZ members only. Has anyone ever been to one of these before? Is *everything* in the store on sale? Is it worth going?

    I got the same email, but I assumed that the "sale" was just the coupons in the email. Hopefully someone else knows for sure.

    I got a $2 Best Buy gift card for filling out a 5-question form at the last event of this sort (on Oscar night).

    The one here is at the furthest Best Buy from me... If it were at the closer one, I'd go visit...

    you didnt miss anything.
    it was just an event with various venders trying to get you to buy into their products.

    LG, verizon, comcast Microsoft office.

    they were giving away a bunch of junk such as little pocket tape measures, little sponge baseballs, a pocket screwdriver.
    nothing really usefull.

    first 100 peeps get a free tripod.
    tripod is about 3 inches tall.
    i wouldnt put my camera on it and not many camcorders would go on it without causing it to collapse.
    legs are like a bendy toy, not very strong and tough to get angled right. junk

    there was no special prices for anything.
    just the double/triple rewardzone points and an extra 50 points just for showing up.

    a raffle every 15 minutes for gift cards and a dvd player.

    i was there for 1 1/2 hrs.
    there was only 4 numbers drawn during that time and NO ONE claimed a winning ticket.

    i doubt i would go again unless they offered speciial discount pricing.

    i forgot, they do givve you a $2.00 for a short survey.

    Good thing I wasn't notified about this one, but kind of annoyed I'm not getting RZ notifications and coupons.

    I, too, am annoyed I didn't get any notification. Within the last month I spent over $300 at BB. You would think that would get me on the list.

    I did get a bunch of stuff under the double points. No prizes other than the $2 gift card for filling out the survey, though. [​IMG]

    I went and wasn't too thrilled either. The first 100 people were supposed to get Titan mini tripods, and I was given a ticket in line for one. When I tried to redeem it, I was told they ran out (huh?!)... I emailed Reward Zone and was given 1500 points for that...

    On the plus side, I did get free Chex mix and a Coke. [​IMG]

    I got an emailed invitation to the "Private Shopping Event" -- "only at these select stores": "Best Buy Albany" (that's Albany, New York). Since my weekend plans didn't include travel from Houston (where there are at least four Best Buys within 10 miles of my house) to New York (where I'm sure I'd find a lot to do other than going to a Best Buy sale -- even in Albany) :>) I skipped this "special" event.

    As someone who went to college in Albany for four years, I think you may be overrating the amount of stuff to do in Albany.
