I already have a RewardZone membership, do I still have to sign up? Doubt I'll spend $100 in a month, but who knows...

Yes, you have to go to the Reward Zone site and register. When I did so, I took a brief 2 minute survey which immediately credited me with $10 towards the $100 spent. I'm like you...I don't know if I'll spend that much, but with the right sale or two, you never know.

My previous post was to remind another poster who indicated he spent near $100 on tv sets.

anyone have luck with BB accepting a printed out version of the coupon (even though it clearly says "no copies")?

where does the original coupon come from?

No word yet on whether anyone is having any luck this go-around. Previously, it was suggested through this forum to print it out on a higher quality paper (glossy?) to increase the likelihood it would accepted. Actually, I don't think anyone was turned down because of the 'no copies' wording, instead it was because the items being bought were on sale and the fine print said something about it only being on regular priced items.

The original coupon came directly from Best Buy, IIRC, and were distributed through some kind of in-store promotion.

I'm going to go in the am if I get the time to pick up the Arrested Development sets and I'll see if the coupon is working here in Fresno. For $4.99 a piece if the coupon is working thats a steal!

I used 10 printed copies of the coupon in order to purchase the ten different seasons, and had great success.

So, the coupons are scanning or do they need to be manually overwritten?

Thanks. A couple weeks ago, when we had all the Fox sets at 9.99 after coupon, the coupons were working automatically for the first few days, and then stopped taking the $10 off automatically.

Having them take the $10 off automatically increases the chance of this working.

If you want an actual $10 off coupon check back in the TV/Home Theater section. My BB had stacks of Fox "HOME THEATER Demo Disc" which has a white cover and is in a normal dvd case. They are FREE and don't ring up at the checkstand. Inside are 5 coupons for FOX titles, including the $10 off FOX tv shows.

Coupons are scanning at the Best Buy in Fresno. No override needed like the last time. Walked out with all three seasons of Arrested Development for $4.99 each. Casher just rang up all all of them one by one and didn't bat an eye.

I just got back from BB (San Diego - Mission Valley) and was able to score all three seasons of Arrested Development for $16. Great Success!

I only brought 2 coupons to Best Buy in Cleveland (Mayfield) and was able to get X-Files seasons 2 and 3. I'm going to go back after work and see what else I can get. The cashier had to do it as 2 different transactions but it probably took less than a minute.

I had 1 original coupon and 4 printed ones, but my printer is low on ink so they were blurry and red. The printed ones wouldn't scan but the guy at the cash register was cool and just scanned the original 5 times

for simpsons season 7,8
and arrested development seasons 1,2,3

I'm only 22 but I always feel so old going into these places where everyone working there is in their teens

Picked up X-Files Season 4-6 today with the coupon. Dude didnt even look at it, just scanned it and never said a word to me..... I dont think he had a tongue.

I had gotten season 1-3 during the last sale for $10, so I guess in the next few days I'll get the last 3.

To X-Files fans, when is Mulders last season and where does the movie fall into place (between what seasons)?

No resize at all. I printed right from Firefox. I used 3 the other day on X-Files.

You guys are getting the $10 off the SALE price right? Also you are using more then 1 coupon at a time correct?

The chick I had said she had to take the discount off regular price. I was like WHAT? She said, "That is what the coupon says". So instead of paying the $19.99, I would be paying more just to use the coupon. I just left and guess I will try again. That was after she told me it was 1 coupon per person, per house hold. UGH!!
