With the impending launch of high end cards I wanted to remind everyone BestBuy gives 10% off on your (or the person ordering) birthday month. Just need a Bestbuy account. Got my 2080ti for $1200-120 = $1080 this way (years ago.)

My birthday is in October, thanks! Edit: How do they know my birthday? I can't find it anywhere in my profile.

Mine is also October, but my guess is 3080/3090 gonna be sold out by then. I guess we'll see!

Interesting. Is this on the whole order or a particular item? Because if you're buying $2k worth of stuff that's $200 off. :D

I wish the RDNA2/Zen3 stuff was getting launched this month so I could pre-order something with it...

This sucks. Mine is truly 9/14. My 3080 is my bdat present to myself..... BUT " If your birthday is between today and the end of the following month, your birthday gift might be delayed."

So it doesn't sound like I'll be getting the discount this month.

I was the 5th, also got the delay message, but might be here by thursdays.

Lining up at Microcenter anyway, have never lined up at a best buy for a graphics card. Do the Best Buy stores actually get em?

I just got a notification from Best Buy that I get 10% on a regular priced item if I use my Best Buy credit card. That'll knock off the tax + $10 for me.

Wait, can you stack this on top of the birthday discount? :nailbiting:

Oh yeah. I remember using that last year.

Is there a limit to how much the 10% can save you?

My birthday is in November... new console release month.
...and after Ampere release month.


Is this completely arbitrary thing trying to push me from PC gaming to console gaming?

They didn't give me a coupon this year despite spending enough the last 4 years to be elite plus member every year.

Do you have to have BB Elite to get the 10%??
Honestly I don't even know. I read on slickdeals its becoming random, not everyone gets one. I used to get it every year but then this year I didn't get anything. I spent enough that they gave me 2 free elite plus invitations which I gave to my father and brother in law. Both of them have birhtdays in december, I wonder if they will get the coupon this year. They used to send it out a week or two before your birthday month.

seems like the 10% coupon does not work on everything, just heads up.

So will they email you when you get the discount? Have a family member who signed up for it. Can we use it to buy multiple items/orders? Thinking of getting 2x of the same GPU.

yes they get them but it's not a per store allotment, been years but if i remember correctly it's area based so they'll move quantity to stores that have a higher customer count if you have multiple stores in the same area.

So if you spend 10k, you'd get 1,000 discount or is there a limit?
it applies to certain regular priced items, but if you can find a single item that is 10k then I guess so. There may be a monetary limit in the fine print.
