Best Buy Unpreferred Customer Weekend:

These weekends are not what they used to be. Case in point:

"Free $25 Best Buy Gift Card Instantly* when you spend $150 or more on any combination of Music, Movies and Video Games"
then read the fine print "Excludes advertised items". Heck, most of their "advertised items" aren't even a reduced price and they get excluded?

"10% Off regularly priced Music and Movie titles, any combination. Limit 5.*"
10% off their regular prices isn't much of a deal, IMO.

"Take 10% off any single item* from these categories:"
One category is Computer Products which stipulates "DVD-RW drives, flash memory, printers $149 & up, etc, etc...." I assume that desktop systems, laptops, monitors, hard & CD-RW drives, video and sound cards, etc., etc...are not included since they are not stipulated.

I've never seen such a restrictive Preferred Customer Weekend at Best Buy. I didn't even bother to shop there, like I've done the past few months. Circuit City is now my hangout...can't believe I'm saying that!
