Piling on...

I did receive an email and a phone call a week or two back. Yesterday I received the gift card in the mail. One $100 card, for 2 purchased HD-A3 players back in November last year.

Not a bad deal. I don't recall seeing any mention of an expiration date on the gift card, but my memory tells me the last time I had a gift card from Best Buy that they are not supposed to ever expire.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

In CA - gift cards never expire - It's the Law - and if your gift card has less then 10 dollars they have to give you the cash - sweet.

I bought My A-1 back in July of '06 and used my moms reward zone card, as I never setup my own reward zone account because she would give me all the reward zone stuff she receives. Anyways, she called me today and said she received the giftcard and she is going to send it to me in the mail tomorrow. I called 1-888-bestbuy later today on my A-30 I bought in Jan. I did not use any reward zone card on that purchase so they did not have a record of who to send the giftcard to, the guy on the phone confirmed my info and said I should receive a $50 gift card for my A-30 purchase in 3-6 weeks.

Format Neutral. Living in HD bliss with the A1, A30and PS3.

Nice, that is cool! Still waiting for my Giftcard. I don't remember if this coupons can be combine to item. I am hoping I can use them for the bluray bd30. I am guessing you can because you are using giftcards as part of the payment minus the 10% discount right?

Although it was after launch day when I purchased mine, it was well before November 1, 2006. My guess would be June 2006 as a purchase date.

Please do not send me PM's asking for software! You will not get it.

Received my $100.00 today, I thought I would only be getting $50 and then I remembered I purchased a HD add on for the x-box360 when they first came out...no wonder I have purchased 10-12000 thousand dollars from BB over the last 4 years....

Same question here. I never called and only received one email. Today I received $100 GC for my two BB.com purchases. Wonder if my 3rd purchase from BBFB will be coming at all?

I just received a $50 gift card. Today was the first day I heard about this. I purchased 4 players from BestBuy but only received one $50 gift card.
I never received a call or an email.

EDit: I see it includes Add On players. So that makes 5 HD DVD players I've purchased from Bestbuy and only one $50 giftcard. If they send me more cards I hope they don't get lost in the mail. $250 would be great!

Edit: Crap! I see the cutoff date is February 22nd. Two of the players I purchsed on February 25th. So I still expect two more $50 gift cards. Although two more would have been nice considering the A35 and addon I bought on FEB 25th were under $150 total. The two $50 cards would have covered a big portion of that and I could have put them toward a BD50 to replace my BD30 BD player.

for those who are expecting 2 or more giftcards. I am expecting 4 GC's and recieved only 1 (yesterday) but I called and the lady verified it to me that they are being sent and she verified to me that a total of 4 GC's are scheduled to be sent to me. But they will come 1 at a time.

Question with you folks.

When you received your 100.00 or more is it in 1 giftcard for 100.00 or 1 giftcard for each 50.00 dollars?

Thanks

Peter

It looks like each purchase of an HD player generates a gift card. So if you bought 2 players on separate receipts, then you get 2 $50 gift cards but not necessarily mailed to you anywhere near each other... However, if you make a purchase of 2 players on the same receipt, then you get one $100 gift card.

Probably would be a logistical nightmare to try and find all purchases of multiple transactions by a given customer and try to combine on one single gift card mailing. I imagine its easier to process each individual transaction as a unique customer even if that means multiple mailings to the same person over time.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Interesting theory but unfortunately not true. I purchased two players almost 4 months apart. And yet, mine came in one card of $100. However, I am still waiting for my 3rd one purchased from BBFB.com.
