[Best Buy] 5 X Reward Zone Points On LG 120HZ LCD,LED And All Plasma TV's At Best Buy

As per page 20 of the current flyer get 5 X Reward Zone Points On LG 120HZ LCD,LED And All Plasma TV's At Best Buy until Nov 3rd. If past offers are any indication, it is likely that this offer will survive a price match or negotiated price drop and still be valid. This equates to $20 - $80 of value on TV purchases. They did confirm that this offer does extend to all LG plasmas, but this is BB after all, and there could be an error, as previous similar offers did not extend to 720P models. I would confirm if this offer applies, directly in store to be sure.

Would this cover price protection if a LG Plasma was purchased in the past 30 days? The points for the purchase are still pending as well...

I would think so, as you could just return and rebuy, if they refuse. So I can't see them giving you any BS. But this is BB after all, who knows.

I guess I will give it a try and also ask for PP for the Giibby current price of 1498.44 as well to get another few bucks back just in case it does not drop any further by Nov 9th.

As I remember, you didn't pay much more than the Gibby's price after your PM?
I don't know if I'd try to get both at the same time, personally, I think I'd try for the $75 in points first, and maybe the PP later.

Yeah.. I did not bother with the 15.00 difference but they did do a return\exchange so I should get the 5x points :) . Will log into my rewards account next week to confirm the points got applied.

So they rewrote your invoice to todays date!! I thought they might.
Sounds like 30 more days of PP to me?
I wonder what would happen to the points if you tried to get price protection on a lower price, after this week. Would you lose the 5x RZ points? I'd guess yes, but....
Maybe Gibby's or EHR will come through this week and hit $1449 and you can make another run at BB for $$ this time.

BTW it may also be possible or advantageous to get another vendor to PM the after points price and get a cash discount or gift card instead of the points. Future Shop will often do this with BB offers and so will Sears. YMMV.

Is dated Oct 29 so yeah I guess I may get an extra few weeks PP as long as I get another CS rep and they do not remeber me. Receipt does not give reason for exchange so I can say exchanged defect... but it also has the original transaction date on it so that may be an out for them. They could say you only get 30 days from the origianl purchase date... now if they gave me two seperate receipts.. one for the return and then a new purchase then it would be good for sure. If the price does go lower on BF sales I will definately try.

Probably another one of those things that will be applied differently depending on the BB store and CS rep you go to. At least it's a possibility if it hits $1299 in a couple of weeks.

BTW there is also a 5X RZ points offer on Microsoft products and software this week, and 2X RZ points on everything else.

Most of the offers above with Gibby's as a PM source will end today.

I checked online Mon and they had my pts at '0' for oct 29th PP\Exchange. So I emailed them and said they made an error... today I checked and they added this :)

11/03/2010 Cert Goodwill Adjustment $100 7,575

... and it is not pending... also they left my pending 1515 pts from the original purchase :) So I got 6x RZ points !! So now my final cost is at 1395 + enviro fee and taxes.....

PS
I rec'd the BB flyer early this week and they still have the 5x RZ points offer for LG products.

Congrats, and thanks for the info J.
Just a thought, but Future Shop started their Xmas price protection extension, this week, to Jan 1st. I wonder if Best Buy started at the same time? and if you can therefore take advantage of any price drops, until Jan, without them wanting to deduct the points value?
