I found this while reading Tuesday Morning Quarterback on ESPN.com Reader Therissa Libby of Annapolis, Md., spent $100 at a Best Buy, receiving a $10 Best Buy gift card as part of a promotion. Here, she reports, is what the disclaimer on the back said:
"Gift card good toward future purchase. Qualifying purchases exclude cellular phones, HP ink and paper, notebooks and desktop computers, monitors, projectors, internal hard drives, Geek Squad in-home services, VOIP, broadband, desktop packages (packages include computer, monitor and printer), video game hardware, Apple products, Bose products, Digital SLR cameras, high-definition camcorders, JBL and Shure MP3 player accessories, Zune devices, satellite radio service, digital music service and download cards, Gift Cards, taxes, prior purchases, special order, clearance, demo and open-box items."
Isn't that pretty much anything in the store? I spend about an half hour thinking about this and looking on the Best Buy website and I still can't find 5 items I would be able to buy with the gift card.
