I would like to propose that Best Buy consider providing military veterans a modest discount on Veterans day each year. I am aware that you keep your pricing low to provide the best value for the money. However many retailers provide military discounts all year long. Some even double that discount on veterans day. As a veteran living on a modest pension along with social security, I have to pinch pennies and look for real deals. If there were a modest discount offered once a year, I might be able to splurge on a new TV or computer.
I appreciate your time and consideration of this suggestion.
To whom it may concern,
I think I speak for thousands of Best Buy employees and customers across the United States/Canada who depend upon Best Buy for our gaming necessities. As a best buy employee I even found enthusiasm in offering Gamers Club Unlocked to my customers. We as a community of enthusiasts implore Best Buy to re-institute Gamers Club Unlocked or an updated membership with similar benefits. Without this membership to unite gamers to Best Buy, I see no link to keep gaming customers purchasing from Best Buy. Thank you.
I would like to see Best Buy copy the program they have up in Canada at FutureShop for video game steelbooks. It would be great to get more exclusive video game steelbooks as pre-order bonuses. Best Buy here in the USA does offer steelbooks for video games but it is only on rare occassions.
Upcoming Steelbooks from FutureShop

Why cant I load my gift cards into my account so that I always have a balance to use vs. having to ensure that I have the cards with me when I travel. You are missing out on HUGE opportunity. I just used Amazon instead of Best Buy for this very reason. I was able to go right to my balance without having th physical card. GET INTO THIS CENTURY PLEASE!! IT IS A REAL TURN OFF TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOUR STORE.
I've noticed that there's been a large focus on used games & there's been several @gamer coupons for used games that have resulted in good deals. But the problem for many is that their local stores don't have a large selection of used games which makes the coupons "useless". Also, when there's deals like buy 2 get 1 free on all used games or buy any used game $30 or more get a free Unlocked membership these are also not enticing if there's little to no game to buy. BestBuy is new to the used game market but if your gonna compete with Gamestop in their backyard you gotta provide the same services.
I think these are reasonable things to add to the current unlocked membership program. Shouldn't cost Best Buy much to implement and gives a little bit more reason to join.
Best Buy has Express Kiosks at a number of airports. 3 in my local airport.
What I would like to see incorporated into the Best Buy web site or as its own site is something dedicated to the Kiosks.
Showing their locations and what individual machines carry. Not necessary a guarantee of an item being in stock but the fact that this or that machine carries this item.
Now it would also be great if it could be included in the app.
Example. I was traveling to a different city for a business conference. I needed a jump drive. I picked on up at the Best Buy Kiosk in Minneapolis Airport.
What would be slick if if your in that situation and you can pre-purchase the item from your phone and then pick it up at the kiosk on your way through the airport.
I am wondering if Best Buy plans to sell this item. I would like to get it with the Best Buy card. This lens has been recomended by pros and I have a trip coming up. I am planning on geting it but it would be better if I got it with the card.
Why has Best Buy taken away points earned for special financing? I made a purchase for $249.99 and never recevied points due to selecting 6-month financing. Why is Best Buy taking away points from its customers and not making the store employees aware of such a policy? This policy is not posted anywhere on the store fronts or by the registers. How is this ethical? Til this policy is made known in the store and online, points should be given to customers accordingly. This now makes me want to cancel everything I have with Best Buy move to buying straight from the manufacturers. Please fix this Best Buy, or show your customers the policy!
There are quite a few games that could be added to this promotion. These are just some ideas. Granted, not all of them are going to come out this year but at least five are going to for sure.
The Order 1886
Kingdom Hearts 3
Metal Gear Solid 5
Borderlands The Handsome Collection
Just Cause 3
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Forza Motorsport 6
This is one of the best promos going & will be even bigger than the 5 for $100 deal last fall but there's quite of few titles missing some big sellers have been forgotten. Other sleeper titles have been left off too but with this credit promo BB can ensure themselves getting a huge share of the pre-orders on these titles. There were a few titles I had to purchase elsewhere b/c they weren't included in the 5 for $100 deal so hopefully these can be added so I can keep my gaming dollars @ BB.
Little Big Planet Karting
Skylanders Giant(New casual huge selling franchise)
Dead or Alive 5
Tekken Tag Tournament 2(Top 1-2 2012 selling fighter game)
Sleeping Dogs(New top notch franchise)
New Super Mario Bros 2(huge seller)
Transformers Fall of Cybertron(sleeper title)
I'm sure there's a few titles I'm missing too.
So here are the only remaining titles available for this promotion.
I will be getting GTA V (midnight release I hope) and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
Victory Can Be Pre-Ordered is the best new release incentive hands down, no competitors even come close.
This can't really be the end of this promotion?
It's the main reason why I choose Best Buy to get all my new releases.
Not when there's still so many great upcoming titles to be released!
How about continuing the promotion for the following titles.
New Suggested Titles:
• GRID 2
Sorry for missing some PlayStation exclusives but I'm an Xbox man.
So feel free to suggest any titles I may have missed.
We did it once HERE, can it be done again?
My wallet sure hopes so!!! lol
Currently, Best Buy Gamer's Club Unlocked members save 20% off new games. This is a great feature, and that's why I don't mind paying for the new (much more expensive) service. However, the exclusion of digital games makes me less likely to purchase more titles.
Since we're now paying $120 for a 2 year subscription, it seems logical to include digital console titles seeing as how digital is the future. Many of us gamers want to move away from having physical copies, and instead have digital copies.
Going with this, the amount of digital games for systems like Xbox One and Playstation 4 are extremely lacking. I'd love to see more games available, similar to how Amazon has done, so I may purchase more!
Finding items from BestBuy can be a pain when the item get de-listed from BB.com since you can no longer use the site to search local stores. This has been a consistant problem with video games & it happens alot on titles that are specifically part of @gamer coupon promos and/or Gamer's club exclusive coupons.
Yes, you can still call the store but since you have de-listed the item a non-BB savvy customer may not know how to get a hold of the SKU # or the rep who answers the call may have little to no knowledge of the item that is being requested. There's a big difference in the vanilla version and GOTY version but non gamers won't have a clue as to what GOTY means.
I see there's a way to research de-listed items being customer reviews but that only gets you the SKU # not the ability to look it up in stores. As a customer who drops into 7-10 different BestBuy's a month I see how big this issue is and too mahy times some stores have 2-3 stacks of items that are de-listed. Since it makes sense for you to sell them I'd assume allowing a cusomer to find the item would need to be made a priority.
I thinks it's been suggested before but a system update in general is probably past due.
I know there are many other PS4 owners who would take advantage of this if it was offered.
Since The Last of Us and other PS exclusives were part of the similar $20 promotion last year it only makes sense for this title to be a part of this one.
Besides, if Xbox gamers can have Titanfall on this promotion, why can't Playstation gamers have Infamous?
For this idea, I am envisioning some type of digital display in each section (computers, speakers, cell phones, etc.) that would allow the customer to easily compare two or more products based on features. The display would show a list of products and after selecting the ones to be compared, it would show a gridded list of features and reviews side by side so the consumer could make more informed decisions. This would also allow Best Buy to highlight certain products in each section by having a digital, customizable display. For instance, if there was a sale on a certain computer, Best Buy could have that computer pre-loaded on the display along with any of the physical marks of the sale in the respective aisle. This technology could be enhanced by having customers request help from Best Buy employees in certain aisles directly, rather than having to seek out an employee that may be on the other side of the store. This added concept is similar to how an airplane passenger can request help from the flight attendant to their specific seat. I think this would greatly increase the benefits customers receive in-store and would create a greater passion for shopping in stores, rather than shopping online.
