I'm not aware of Blockbuster having "preferred customer" weekends. Best Buy, on the other hand, does have them approx. every 6 weeks or so. It seems like BB had lots of these sales during late-2003. However, I've only received about one coupon book in 2004. I wonder if Best Buy is scaling back the number of these sales in 2004?
Are they still having these?!?! I honestly can't remember the last time I wasn't sent coupons!
Hey Malcom, maybe I shamed them into giving up on these non-events, exposing their coupon distribution system for the sham that it is, ripping into the very underbelly of the Best Buy beast and tearing away the flesh......
Yep, I got one. I think you only get them if you've used BestBuy.com to order previously, as they said it was tied directly to your existing account and only your correct username/password would allow you to get the discount.
I got one, then deleted it by accident. But that's OK, I shouldn't be buying from Best Buy anyway.
But, the aggravating part of the thing is: for us folks who DO spend time & money at Best Buy not to be included in a "preferred customer sale" when the point of the thing is to give discounts to...just that--"preferred customers".
On a semi-related note, when was the last time they offered bonus RZ points? I seem to remember them offering them on Sundays & Mondays back in October, but I don't recall anything since. Suncoast seems to have bonus weekends all the time, but I can't really think of any noteworthy bonus point events at Best Buy.
They've got bonus point promotions going on all the time. They just don't have "bonus points on everything in the store" specials like Musicland stores do with Replay. For example, this week you get 250,000 bonus points (that's worth $100) if you buy a plasma big-screen TV ($1500 or more), and bonus points if you buy any video game.
