    Congratulations Mike! I know you don't want to hear I got them for the first time this weekend without trying, but I'm excited too.

    I'm a former BB employee and yes If you sign up for the BB Card that's how you get them. See if you use there card they make more money, If you use Visa,Mastercard,etc. they have to pay the card co.a percentage. So thats why you get them.So that you will use there card and hopefully don't pay it off in time then they make a whopping 19% interest and get there service plans! They make all there money on MSN, NEtflix, bb cards and service plans. The Mgr. Bonus is directly related to how many PSP's PRP"s they sell some are good some suck, the old ones sold about a year ago are better because if it breaks the plan extends to the new one, now if it breaks you have to buy a new one. TV's for instance use a local repair shop if it sucks your plan sucks. I've had numerous repairs on tv's that left the TV in worse shape then when they came. BB pays a flat service fee to the repair shop no matter how many times it takes to repair it. So good repair shops tend to tell BB to go fly a kite because they can make more money on their own.

    Rich, that sounds like the reason why some - or even many - people get these coupons.
    My wife has been getting the coupons for years. I started getting the coupons a short time ago.
    Neither of us has ever been a Best Buy credit card holder. Neither of us ever bought a service plan until I got one for a device we bought using the first coupons I got in my name. None of the things you mention have a thing in the world to do with how our names could have gotten on those lists.
    OTOH, Mike got the credit card and didn't get the coupons for months. [​IMG]

    Well Mike, we are all dying to know what the latest proud holder of a BB coupon mailing will choose to purchase[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] what will it be???
    Whatever it is I sincerely hope that it is not defective in any way, thereby necessitating a return/exchange, whereby aforementioned coupon is forfeited.

    I just hate the inconsistency of my coupons.

    None have arrived for this week, and I would like to use them to pick up Season 1 of Angel.

    Oh, well.

    If not, then I'll just order it online and then not have to worry about the sales tax.

    I just got some of these coupons, too. I got some back in October, and then I moved. This week's coupons showed up with my new address on them, even though I have not bought a thing at BB since I moved -- though I tried to buy something and did get a rain check there last month. I also have a Zoner card and I did change my address with them, so maybe that is how this happened? Anyhow, hopefully they will keep on coming. In the past I got them sporatically at best. One of my coupons doubles my Zoner points if I buy a CD or DVD at 10% off (I believe). I am considering picking up the soundtrack to Chicago -- something I have been wanting.

    For the record, I have never had a Best Buy credit card.

    I received a coupon for the upcoming weekend...but I just purchased a 42" Mitsubishi this past weekend! [​IMG] Given that it hasn't been delivered yet, should I return it and repurchase it this weekend?

    I didn't get my coupons until today. I was going to email BB asking how it could be possible that *Mike Frezon* was getting coupons and I wasn't, but let it pass. [​IMG]

    The wife and I both got our coupons today. Mine were:

    1) 10% off any one item (the usual)

    2) 10% off any five items from Music, Movies, Software, or VideoGames/VG Accessories (the usual)

    3) Netflix: $20/month

    4) Free $10 gift card with every $50 spent in computer accessory items/limit 10 $10 gift cards

    Hers were the same, except for the last one:

    4) Buy any Pentium 4 desktop package and get a free 3-piece Altec Lansing Model 221 speaker system instantly ($49.99 value)

    Matt,

    Thanks a ton, but I actually received mine today.

    I just hope that I can use mine on Angel and BFGW.

    Just a note to add that another BB Preferred Customer Weekend is about to come and go and I am STILL not receiving coupons. Could've used a set this weekend, too, for some computer items.
    Found some .pdfs over at FatWallet but my manager was a stickler and didn't allow me to use them on my big-ticket purchase.
    Anyway, it was interested to see at both Fat Wallet and DVD Talk that there are many, many people out there all wondering how to get on the preferred customer list and why they receive the coupons with such irregularity.

    I did! But since they sold out of the 120GB Maxtor hard drive that was on sale last week, I bought nothing with the coupons.
