Same here. Amazon and Best Buy have been wonderful with their swift gift cards. Fry's and Circuit City need to offer the same!

Has anyone received gift cards from BOTH place and know if the letter you get with the gift card is exactly the same?

I might be mistaken but I think my letter explicitly said Best Buy for Business. I will check when I get home so don't get your hopes up yet.

Could you imagine the Backlash for Circuit City if it comes out that Toshiba gave a huge chunk of change to each major retailer to ease the pain of discontinuing the product?

What if CC decided to use that money for themselves instead of giving it back to the consumer! People will be really pissed if that is the case! Although CC did offer to extend their return policy to 90 days. That was a decent gesture. Not quite worth $50 though.

Got my GC last Friday. Never got a phone call or e-mail. I had bought the last HDA1 they had in the store, store display with no manual for $179. I've had it for over a year with no problems. I was pleasantly surprised to find the letter and GC in the mail. Went into BB Saturday and picked up Fight Night Rd 3 and NCAA BBall 2k8 for the PS3 and paid $13 out the door.

The problem with obsessions is that they are insatiable.

Yes, please check that out and report back. I double-checked my letter today and definitely no sign of Best Buy For Business or BBFB anywhere on it. If your letter does say one of those 2 names, then there's a good chance I have a 2nd gift card on the way.

Sorry I checked it only said Best Buy. No mention of Best Buy for Business. Sorry again for getting your hopes up. You still might be surprised though!

I received my BB Gift card and the only HD DVD player I purchased from Best Buy was from the Best Buy for Business. Even sweetened the deal as I ordered an A2, Received an A3 and now have the gift card for $50 to boot!

Got my other $50 yesterday. It's for my BBDB purchase. The letter itself is the same as BestBuy. No mention of BBFB anywhere. I know it is BBFB GC because I already got my BB.com GC a few weeks ago.

I never received an email or phone call. Got a letter with a $50 gift card today explaining it was for a hd dvd player bought from Best Buy through the Rewards Program. I purchase an xbox 360 add on a year ago.

I received an email from best buy a month or so ago, stating that some customers who bought an hd-dvd player between this date and that date would receive $50.00 gift card. I called the number w/ my receipt in hand and received a recorded message that i would be receiving a gift card in the mail before May 1st. I still haven't gotten mine. Any ideas on what i should do?

Maybe just be a little patient?

I'm still waiting also,I received an email over one month ago.
I read they will be sending out the gift cards in alphabetical order depending on your last name.

Unless they're going backwards I don't think this is the case....I purchased 2 add-ons and 1 A3 from BB and BB.com and I haven't received anything from them, I called and confirmed I was receiving $150 from them the day the promotion was announced, and my last name starts with a B......

I called around March 20th and they said it would take 4-6 weeks. I think called about a week or so ago and they said I would get it early May. I haven't received an emails but I might have deleted it. My last name falls right in the middle of the alphabet but I don't think that is how they are sending out the rebates.

I just really wanna get mine because I already have a $150 gift card there which I wanna use on a PS3. Even if I get the PS3 now, I could probably easily spend the HD-DVD rebate there but I'd rather not.

I still have't gotten mine either and I've got $150 coming as well. I was in a bit of a rush to get them because I thought the BD50 was going to be out sometime soon but it looks like it's getting a June/July release now so meh. Whatever. I guess I'll get my tax rebate around the same time and will haev $750 to spend instead just $150.

wewt.

"IBTL" isn't cute, funny or original.

Also: you couldn't care less and purposes are NOT intensive. For all intents and purposes if you don't know these things, you probably shouldn't use them.

I somewhat have the same feeling if I should wait or not to get this gift card. I wanna get GTA4 the day it comes out but I doubt that I'll receive my gift card by Tuesday. I should probably just get the system now and use my HD-DVD gift card later but sometimes I find it hard to find something good at Best Buy that isn't marked up too high.

I never got an email or phone call for the XA-2 I purchased in store last August. Just called and they had no information about the purchase. I paid with a BB credit card so she looked that up. Lady (very nice) told me I should receive the gift card in a couple of weeks.

I called the number on 5/3 and got a recording it would take 4-6 weeks, but I remember them saying if it didn't arrive by 5/1 to call them.

I figure I'll give it another week and then start screaming.

4. I will still get the $50 gift card

Basically if you paid by credit card you can call in and they can look up the transaction...kinda scary they know every item you buy but that's how it is.

Who are we supposed to call?

GRRRR...still no gift cards. I think if they don't come today, I'll give them a call. Is it just a recording though? Or can I actually speak to someone about it?
