I forgot to post about this back in June. Email today sent to me from “The Best Buy Rewards Zone Program”
You may remember receiving notification in June 2009 about changes to the Reward Zone® program. This is just a reminder to explain the changes that will be affecting your point balance.Please take a moment to review the important elements of points annualization.What is points annualization?
•In February, Reward Zone program accounts with 250 points are automatically being issued reward certificates to the nearest $5 level
•Any remaining account balance below 250 points will be forfeited
•The annualization of the program is based on your purchases as of December 31, 2009
Apparently Best Buy needed to make up a word to hammer the point home that the Rewards Zone Program is now a joke. What this means is you HAVE to spend $250 dollars with Best Buy within a year to make even being part of the “Program” worth it. If you don’t hit that goal all your purchases are worthless to the program when February rolls around.
Last time I checked I was at about 180 points. Today I’m back down to zero.
I used to carry my Best Buy card with me everywhere. Today I ripped it up and threw it in the trash. Seriously what a bunch of idiots it’s just a worthless matter of control making the customer think their purchases are going to lead somewhere. Honestly it’s not even worth it’s weight in my wallet for a five dollar gift certificate.
