I’m very iffy when it comes to shopping at Best Buy. It is NOT my first choice to go to when it comes to electronics, games, and other things. My first choice has always and will always be FUTURESHOP!
On occasion, they do sometimes have things on sale and even price match + give a 10% discount for matching a price if you find it at a competitor for less (like Futureshop). I also signed up for their Best Buy Reward Zone awhile back because I figured I might as well earn some points for the few times I shop there.
Well, this is what I get for signing up…

Thank you so very much. I’ve been wondering why I’ve been getting 50+ junk mail a day out of the blue. I appreciate it. NOT! I could have done WITHOUT signing up for the rewards program and getting spammed by a gazillion junk emails in my inbox. Ughhh… Back to cleaning out my inbox.
