So I went to buy the new Macbook Air at the only local Best Buy that had stock. I had them hold it during the evening of the Reward Zone Silver special event so that I would get triple reward zone points, and brought my student ID in the hopes of getting the $100 gift card. However when I arrived the salesperson in customer service would not give me the gift card or student discount, as they said that Apple had not put out guidelines for the new Macbook Airs. I argued for a while, but finally gave up and purchased it regular priced, figuring that I could always bring my receipt to another store and take up the issue with them later. And I wanted the extra Reward Zone points. The other day I compiled all the research that I figured would help me get the discounts, and went to a different Best Buy than the one I originally purchased the MBA from. I went to customer service and explained my situation, and showed them a printout from Apple's website showing that the MBA is included in their Back-to-School promotion. The guy I was dealing with didn't seem to know what to do, and asked his manager to help him out; she said something like "just do a price match." I have no idea what he did next, but he fiddled around on the computer and then said "okay, you will have $212 back to your Visa." Didn't say anything about a gift card, I was stunned and just smiled and walked out. The next day I checked my reward zone account, and found that in addition to the discount, he had also processed the transaction as though I bought the computer again, so not only do I have triple points from the original purchase, but also from the "new purchase." This resulted in me having over 5000 points! So essentially to sum it all up, my price AFTER taxes was $1100, and I got quadruple rewards points. Suffice to say I won't be complaining about not getting my Best Buy gift card!
