Standard 10% off coupons plus a nice "5,000 bonus points with a $25 Best Buy credit card purchase" coupon for me.

Mark: Does Best Buy actually print "Alienate Mike Frezon Coupons" right on the envelope you get in the mail?! :D

Well, not yet, but I have it on good authority that they will be doing that starting with the next mailing or so, as well as introducing a new time table for these coupons, including the weekend after your birthday, in alignment with any big DVD release weeks for you, and basically corresponding to any other occasion where it's absolute torment for you not to get these coupons.

You've become an institution, Mike.

I've recently moved to a new state and have only been here six weeks and already I've received these coupons! I've only bought two things at the store and I've returned one of them so this is clearly how they got my address.

I don't know if you've tried this angle yet, Mike, but it might be worth it to give it a try. Buy some pc speakers or something and take em back the next week and see what happens.

Good luck!

Oh man, I've been Frezoned! [not to be confused with Frozone'd--hey maybe Mike can be a superhero in The Incredibles 2!]

(I'm posting this because last time I did, the coupons arrived within a day or two...)

:D

Here's a scan of this weekend's coupon (link); this is for all of the charter members of the Frezon Fraternity. ;)

Got mine today. I'm either going to pick up the second and third Batman sets or give it to my BF...it really depends on if I get a job in the next three days. :)

Probably not...unless you can get a higher quality scan of them than the one above [so that the fine print and barcode are clear], and use a nice inkjet on thicker stock paper (semi glossy) to mimic what they use.

Or you can try to print that and say "I got this emailed to me but my inkjet printer sucks" and see if they buy that. Hopefully you won't get some up-to-the-minute manager who's aiming for district V.P. who replies "I know all BB promotions and we certainly didn't email any out this week!" :p)

Yeah, I heard they're going to change their envelopes from "Other mailboxes will be envious," to "Mike Frezon will be envious." ;)

Odd. I have been off the mailings for a long time, but after a recent purchase by the BB credit card, I am back on the mailing. I wonder if that is the key?

BUT, I don't get a coupon for 5000 RZ points with a BB credit card purchase. I did, however, get an additional coupon to the ones pictured in the link: 10 percent off any single item in a wide selection of Entertainment, Computer Products, and more stuff.

It's a YMMV situation. If you have access to a colour laser printer, the result is pretty good. I've also printed them on my Canon inkjet at home. Using a whiter, heavier grade of paper usually helps (e.g. 24lb. and 97 Bright or higher, as it absorbs the ink better and colours are more vibrant), but I've also had cashiers accept coupons printed on regular photocopy paper (20lb., 84 Bright) As long as the barcode is legible, it should work (most of the time).

I dropped a coupon in the store once and couldn't find it on the floor anywhere. They still gave me the 10% off after getting the manager to approve it.

And I didn't get a coupon for this weekend either and still waiting to see if I can get my reward zone card renewed for free. I have been cutting down on BB purchaes though...

This was the first time I DIDN'T get the coupons. I was a little ticked off too since I've been seriously eyeing a large ticket item. I printed off the coupon at the link above and was prepared to make a go at it. When I got to BB, they had printed off 8 1/2 x 11 coupons from, what appeared to be, an internet version of the %10 off deal. These were lying all over the store.
