Mailer for $10 Reward certificate for spending $25

I got a mailer for stating I would get a $10 reward certificate if I spent $25 or more at Best Buy or within a period in January. So I bought a $1000 tv and figured I would get my certificate. Never was emailed, so I called and talked to a nice woman who said I would get an email after a ticket had been made up to resolve the situation. The response wasn't what I was looking for saying I was wrong in interpreting what the flyer said. It had to be purchased with a BB Visa. However, there was no mention of a BB Visa or credit program at, so I took a picture of the flyer, and a close-up of the fine print and sent it back saying as much. That lead to what I'd consider one of the most condescending emails I've ever gotten, stating "The promotion "Get $10 reward certificate when you spend $25 by 01/31/17" is  applicable to the outside purchases made using My Best Buy Visa card within the specified dates. However, considering that you are not well-educated how does the said promotion works, as one-time exemption, I have manually adjusted 500 points on your account equivalent to the $10 reward certificate."


Don't get me wrong, I was glad the issue was resolved for what I wanted to happen, but to be belittled and told how wrong I was as a customer (all over $10) makes me want to jump over to Amazon the next time I look to purchase something.


Did anyone else get this same flyer? I wish I could attach a picture.
