Best Buy $5 Coupons Question!?

I just notice that the $5 off $19.99 coupons for video games expired on 3/31/03 but I managed to buy kung fu chaos with it and I didn't notice they had expired.

Are these the last of coupons around or has anyone seen some that have and expiration date until the end of the year?

The ones I have gotten from the Gamer's Gift cards all expire 12/31/03. However, I have used expired $5 off Best Buy coupons for video games from EGM, and other magazines without issues before. They don't seem to check the expire date and the computer does not catch it... so lesson is ... never throw away a Best Buy $5 off coupon.

Gamer's Gift Cards are in CD cases w/ a greenish cardboard backing. Most BBs have thousands of them. Could be in the video game section, customer service area, front counter, or in the Gift Card only display near the front. You should buy like 20 of them, putting a dollar or so on each card. On the back of the cardboard is a $5 coupon good until 12/31/03 on any video game or accessory. Coupons good at all CC stores also.

Thanks for saving me the trouble Cope !

I can't believe people still don't know about those coupons. I've been whining about them for months now

Maybe I'll just change my signature to your quote, adding that they usually work on sub-19.99 items also.

You're welcome....I too am a bit shocked that this question gets asked on a regular basis. Just keep that quote on your clipboard and just randomly post it, maybe it'll sink in eventually

I thought someone did start writing a FAQ a month or so back, but I couldn't find it.

The video game FAQ does cover the $5 coupon question, and is now stickied at the top of the page.
