    I just received some coupons in the mail.

    BEST BUY FOUR-DAY SALES EVENT:

    ---

    One coupon is for 10% off any regularly-priced movies, music, video games and computer software. You are limited to 5 items with this coupon (and only one coupon like this was included in my packet) and also limited to 3 of one specific title.

    ---

    The biggie here seems to be 10% off any single item from Entertainment, including TVs, DVD players & recorders ($299 and up), MP3 players * DIRECT TV systems ($199 and up), digital camcorders ($349 and up), home theater systems ($399 and up), digital projectors, portable CD players, musical instruments, car electronics, speakers, etc. etc.

    The same coupon offers financing with no interest for 18 months for any of these purchases $299 and up. Additionally, there is a section listing computer products eligible for the same 10% and interest-free savings. Actual PC's are not included in the deal.

    ---

    Finally, I have a coupon for an Instant $20 Best Buy gift card for every $100 you spend on computer peripherals, accessories and services (networking, memory, cards, drives, keyboards, controllers, MP3 players, blank digital media, etc.). You may spend up to $500 on these items and receive up to $100 back in BB gift cards.

    ^ As someone not happy with his current computer who is looking into buying a laptop in the coming months, I really wish this wasn't happening right now. I wish the coupon allowed me to receive $20 for every $100 I spend on DVDs. That would be sweet!

    ---

    I don't know who is going to receive these coupons, but good luck. They don't seem too special unless you're in the market for some computer stuff.

    15% would be nice. $20 BB giftcards for every $100 spent on media would be nicer. Oh well. I was going to go to BB on Friday anyway, so this will be 10% less than I was going to spend. [​IMG]

    Of course, when you combine the 10% with the 4% Rewardzone credit, you get into the realm of 15%.[​IMG]

    Got mine too. I'm tempted to stop at BB on my way to Circuit City just to tell them where they can stick their damn coupons. [​IMG]

    You guys should be happy that you receive any coupons. Bestbuy or I should say, WorstBuy, never sends me any and i've spent almost thousands of dollars there. Oh well.

    Can you post the coupon for ten percent off dvds? I might be able to use this on the CSI box set that always over price there.

    We got our coupons for the weekend of the 16th on the 17th or 18th. Have to love that post office service.

    On the other hand I did receive a coupon for Best Buy for the weekend in email which did arrive in advance. I was busy that weekend, but appreciated getting the notice. So, if you get on their email notice list you might get them via email as well.
