Best Buy


Hope the link works,

I went to purchase the LG Optimus One phone (KOODO) from the Best Buy website. It clearly says that if you purchase the phone on tab you get a $75 gift card. When I get to the store and I was checking out the associate said it was for new activations only. Well guess what If i am abuying a new phone than that should be considered newly activating that phone. He said because I already had an account with koodo that I will not recieve it. That’s not fair at all.

This is one of the main reasons why I went over to best buy to make the purchase in the first place. Talk about false advertising. The add does say that the phone has is not available to be shipped, but no where near that “Free $75 gift card” did it say conditions apply or anything like that

    usually there is a tiny asterisk or a cross n the flyer,at the very bottom in the fine print that states it must be a new activation on usually a 1 2 or 3 year plan,this is customary on most deals like that,same goes for future shop which is a best buy sucks but that is in their fine print.

    Almost all cell companies do this, although when I said “Fine cancel my old plan ” they gave me what I wanted.But I do not have a monthly contract.
