Birthday Coupon applied when it should not have been

Hello, I visited a Best Buy store today and bought an item which I had BBY price match to a competitor. What I didn't know would happen is BBY would apply the 10% birthday coupon first THEN fill in the remainder of the total price match amount. For example, the item was $230 and price matched down to $160 ($70 savings). Instead of getting a $70 price match, BBY automatically took my birthday Coupon and used on the item ($23 or 10%) then filled in the $47 to get to $70 for total price match. I didn't want to use this coupon yet and anyway it doesn't feel like I got the full price match since it applied my coupon to match the price.

How do I go about getting the reversed? Can another birthday coupon be sent to me?

Thank you.

Re: Birthday Coupon applied when it should not have been

Good evening, marffeus,


Welcome back to the Best Buy forum, and Happy Birthday!!!


The birthday coupon offering 10% off a single-item is sent to a random selection of members who have a birthday tied to their rewards account, so there aren't any guarantees a member will receive one.  It's considered a one-time use coupon, and the coupon can't be provided or reissued upon request.  The coupon only applies to an items regular price, which is why it was applied to your purchase before the price match was honored.


You could process a full return and repurchase to take full advantage of the price match difference, but the coupon wouldn't be reissued.  I'd like to go over your rewards account in a bit more detail with you, so I'll be sending you a private message shortly.  You can read a private message by first logging into the forum and then clicking on the envelope icon at the top of the page.
