GCU members should ALSO get double points for Console purchases.

I never understood why we get double points for software,accesories, and digital content but not for buying a console? That would really entice members to buy the console at Best Buy along with their games.

I support the idea but if I recall correctly this was previously shot down for several reasons. Profit margins on consoles are EXTREMELY small for retailers/console makers alike that`s why there`s so few discounts. Most promos that exist are partly/primarily sponsered by the vendor in the past it was common to sell consoles at a loss for some time while profitting on the add ons/games now profits mean so much more. Only purchases made during the bonus MyBB pt promo weekends and/or BB credit card recieve extras. Maybe this can be a perk of a BB Amazon prime copycat program and/or a BB Redcard copycat card. http://www.forums.bestbuy.com/t5/Best-Buy-IdeaX/Offer-a-service-to-compete-with-Amazon-Prime-and-or-... http://www.forums.bestbuy.com/t5/Best-Buy-IdeaX/BestBuy-version-of-the-Target-Redcard-w-5-discount-a...

Absolutely. I actually just bought my Xbox One from Best Buy so it would be great to receieve a bonus for doing so.

Yes! This would further entice people to purchase consoles at bestbuy. As long as BB advertises correctly about members and GCU getting points for a console purchase I'm postive they could push a lot more consoles.

@enuf  I really don't see what the problem would be. The MyBB points are funny money and BB is guaranteed you have to spend that with them. So what's the harm in throwing....say $10-20 worth of points for a console purchase at somebody buying one.

 

They just spent $200+ on a console. That extra money will be an incentive for them to come back and buy games at BB with a mix of the certificates from those points and their own money.

 

Seems like a win-win to me.

definitely agree with this idea, there is no reason why consoles are excluded from this tiered gaming club

I agree with @CheapestGamer . I would also purchase the console at Best Buy over other places that might have a better deal because of the MYBB points. As with the extra points I could come back and buy a game.

In the meantime you could include a subscription for Gamers Club with a console bundle that would incite a sale or 2 if you explain it to a consumer
