Allow store purchasers to earn the Verified Purchaser Badge on reviews.

I purchased 2 items in the store, and I only have Top 250 Contributor and My Best Buy Rewards Member badges on my review.


I think you could allow the badges if you asked for the Customer Service Pin Number on the receipt, the people who moderate the reviews can add this badge to people who want to review. Its very important to let legit people who purchased in stores know their legitimate purchase has just as much weight and legitimacy as those who purchase the items online and people could have a better purchase decision versus those who review products who have not purchased from Best Buy but from other retailers but saw the product on Best Buy and decided to review it based on their experience.

Specially since it wouldn't be too difficult to add, me saying this without knowing how the website is coded, since the purchase is already linked to a My Best Buy account.

Also, some reviews are actually discussions of the product itself I've found out and have no real relationship to reviewing the product or actually purchasing them.


Gamestop had some kind of system in place where they would moderate the posts like Best Buy does, but would move the posting to the Discussion area for that product if they felt like it was not a review.
