Just thought I would update this so the good people here would know what the outcome was.
Allan sent me a couple of messages and I assume he tried to work it out with the store in question bit I was never contacted by them and in the end there was no resolution.
I am happy to report that I have really stepped up my efforts to make sure everyone I know (or sometimes those I just come in contact with) knows of my experience. I have to say when most people hear about the school coupon book they are pretty appalled.

Just to be clear, I'm not bashing Best Buy in general. I got the impression that Allan actually tried to help me. I'm bashing my particular store. I'm also not just walking up to people I don't know and telling my tale. But if I'm at a school function and mention how Best Buy wont honor their coupon as small talk, it does draw a bit of a reaction.
I do know that they lost my business. As a programmer, gamer, audiophile and general techno nerd, I am someone who buys electronics fairly regularly. I'm currently looking for a new laptop and I want the keyboard dock for the Transformer Prime my company just gave me. I'm also the guy that gets asked for advise when someone is about to purchase electronics.
