    I was very surprised to receive a few Best Buy coupons in the mail the other day for the first time. Unfortunately I have no idea how I got on the list (sorry Mike Frezon).
    • 10% off regularly priced Music, Movies, Video Games
    • 10% off Computer products, Entertainment equipment *
    • free $10 gift card with $50 spent on digital media, pc gaming controllers, computer speakers, mp3 players, pc cameras(?), networking, mobile storage, surge protectors
    So for those who may also be on the list be sure to check your mailboxes before this weekend.
    Chris S.
    * includes other items such as 2-way radios, 35mm & digital cameras, phones, microwaves, etc. Basically just about everything but music and movies

    In the Phoenix market I got 2 coupons for 10% off dvd's. Im guessing my wife got 2 as well. couple that with good deals on signs and Sixth sense, and ill be there this weekend. BTW, as far as I know, If you have a Credit account with BB, you get on the Preffered Customer List.

    I've been on BestBuy's "preferred customer" mailing list for 3 months now and have noticed that their "preferred weekends" are landing on the 10th-ish of each month (2nd weekend).

    The manager at my local store has let me use the 10% DVD coupon early so that I can use it on New Release Tuesday. If you have a good relationship with your local store, go ahead and ask about using your coupon early.

    Technically, you're not supposed to be able to use the coupons on sale items. Only regular priced items. Enforcement seems to be very spotty, however.

    Well, I'm going to try and use mine today.

    Each time that I've tried to use them on a Friday or Saturday they're sold out of the movies that I've been intending on buying.

    Hopefully they won't put up a stink... otherwise I just go back to the store on Friday and return the DVD's and rebuy them with the coupon.

    Color me happy.

    *Technically* they aren't supposed to let you use those coupons on sale-priced items. However in my experience I've had both success and denial at the attempt. The two times I was denied was by 1) and assistant manager, and 2) by a cashier that I think aspires to be an assistant manager.

    Going to the Westwood store (near a college) means that a lot of the employees are young-uns who could really care less about enforcing that policy. I recently got a 10% off of the BTTF trilogy which was already sale-priced. It really is a crapshoot as to whether or not they'll let you use the coupon.

    I recently moved, and just placed an order on Bestbuy.com... for xXx and Dark Crystal... and on the same day they arrived, there was an envelope from BB with the coupons.

    So if they've got your info, they're sending you coupons!

    Our local Best Buys have 18 month 0% financing on TV's $299+ right now. I planned on waiting until Friday when the 10% coupon was good to get the TV. Does anyone know if I should even bother with waiting and trying to use the coupon? Ill go get the TV now if im going to be denied with the coupon. [​IMG] Then I will go back this weekend and pick up the DVD player and AR component video cables using the coupon. [​IMG]

    Lloyd,
    Last year I was able to pick up a TV with the 0% financing for 15 months and us the 10% off coupon. YMMV.
