Double Points for New Games?

I've been a Gamer's Club member for nearly a year now, and I've never seen the double points for any of my gaming purchases.  Is there something else that I need to do to 'activate' this promotion, or is it just a glitch?
Do double points only happen when you purchase games for your 'preferred' system?

Hi house1548,
I'm very sorry to hear that our Gamers Club has only been half as awesome as it should have been for you since joining.  I can imagine this has been a surprise to learn, and I want to get to the bottom of it with you!
I have reviewed your account, and everything appears to be in order, so I am not sure what may be causing the discrepancy.  I have reached out to our partners on the My Best Buy team for further research, and as soon as I have more information for you I will let you know via a private message.
Thank you for being a My Best Buy member, and thank you for visiting our forum.
Best regards,

  • Will this Desktop Work for newer games?

    I was thinkking of buying this but i wasnt sure if it would be able to run the Newer games like Bf3. And in October Bf4. Here's the website link.
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+Refurbished+-+Refurbished+ENVY+Desktop+-+10GB+Memory+-+1TB+Hard+Dri...
    Do you think this pc would be able to run those games?
    Please Help.
    Thanks in Advance.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Alright, here's my suggested solution
    Graphics card :

    I know this is a bit above the $150 mark, but really anything less than that wouldn't be worth it.
    To compare, the 7450 scored 319 points on the Passmark test, where as the 650 scored 1831.
    It most likely won't be able to play it maxed out on settings, but should handle the games decently on medium.
    Thoughts/criticisms from others welcome, if they can find something better.
    If you like my post, or solution to your issue/question, go ahead and click on the little star by my name and/or accept the post as the Solution. It makes me happy.
    I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
    Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.

  • Dynamic Header for a website.    DOUBLE POINTS FOR ANSWER!!

    I don't even know where to start with this one, let me try explain this:
    I am looking for ideas on how to create some sort of dynamic header for an affiliate website, we have launched a new affiliate program for http://www.africancures.com/ the affiliate program is done through 1shoppingcart.com and each affiliate is given an ID like:
    http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=812264
    Once the affiliate signs up they choose their own website URL like: mikeshealth.com, then we point the affiliate URL mikeshealth.com to http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=812264 which in turn comes to our main website: http://www.africancures.com/ now here is where the problem comes in, how do I make the website display Mikes Health instead of African Cures .
    I hope I was able to explain this well enough as it seems to be a bit confusing to me when I write it down. I really hope there is someone out there who has worked on something like this before or if there is someone who thinks they know how to do this.
    Thank you
    So here is something else I was thinking of, but I am not much of a programmer anymore:
    Have a list of all the affiliate ids and their corresponding website names, eg:
    Affiliate ID=812264 Website name= Mikes Health, then when someone comes to the site the jave works out which affiliate id sent them to the site, eg
    Get(AffiliateID)from Refering.URL then Display.Header(AffiliateID) on main page, do you think you could help me now Sabre150?

    I'm still trying to see what this has to do with Java. Each host name such as mikeshealth.com will need to be registered with name servers with the IP address of www.1shoppingcart.com. Your web server will then need to be configured to perform perform any mapping.
    Again, what has this to do with Java?

  • Looking for new games for iPhone 3Gs

    Hi. Probably in the wrong section but I've got the latest update for iTunes and since then, when I go to Apps Store and select Games, all I see is nothing but Best Doodle Games and Best Race Car Games. I see nothing about New or Noteworthy any more. Am I missing something or is there a problem here?? Thanks.

    I use iTunes 9.1 and I just went to the UK Itunes App Store and selected Games and got it all. Did you try to scroll up to see all the page? I see New and Noteworthy, What's Hot, and What We're Playing above Best Doodle Games and Best Race Car Games.

  • Double click for new tab dont work

    When I hidden the menu bar does not work double click on the tab bar to open a new tab. What it does when you double click, is to restore or maximize the window depends on the status of this.
    If I shows the menu bar, go back to work.
    I have the latest version of Firefox 4.
    Thanks.

    Try middle click instead of double click

  • HT4009 i bought point from D&D dream corporation for headsoccer games. i received my bill, but i didn't get my point. how can i get my money back

    i have bought point from D&D dream corporation for headsoccer games.
    at 13 june 2013.
    i have received my billing from i tunes
    but i didn't get my point for the games.
    i don't know where to report this problem
    thanks

    Try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via the Store > View Account menu option and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find that in-app purchase and use the 'Report a Problem' link and fill in details about the problem (iTunes support should reply within, I think, about 24 hours).
    If the 'report a problem' link doesn't work (it's been taking some people to this site on a browser instead of showing a form in iTunes) then you can try contacting iTunes support via this page : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/- click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page.

    Sorry for violation. I would like to add a menubar to the application containing a single menu button for new game. adding a menubar is simple but how can i reshuffle the buttons using methods like update etc. or any other way.

  • Downloaded Amazing Spider-Man app but keeps on closing when you press a new game.

    I have downloaded the app Amazing Spider man which has cost me £4.99. The problem we got when you press for new game it come straight of it and goes back to the main home screen. I have uninstalled it and also have done a restore on the iPad this is still happening.

    Contact the app vendor

  • Missing 2X points for games purchase

    Unless I am missing something,I am not receiving the 2X points bonus for purchasing new games as a Gamers Club member.
    The first transaction was 12/27/14 for 79.98 which I only see receiving 79 points for.
    The second was on 11/28/14 for 44.98 which I show receiving 44 points for.
    Hoping to get these transactions corrected along with any going forward.
    Thanks!

    There must be well over 200,000 games in the App store by now.  At one point over a year ago, there were an average of 60 new games a day appearing in the store.  Without knowing something about the kind of games you like, it is impossible for anyone to even suggest a genre to look in, let alone specific games.

  • When I upgraded to ios 5, it asked me a for a new game center name.  How do I use my old game center name, since it makes me start some games over without it?

    Carefully follow steps 1-9 outlined by wjosten in this post: https://discussions.apple.com/message/13356770#13356770.  This will not, however, avoid wiping any non-purchased media from your phone (ripped CDs, etc.) as this is only synced one way: from your computer to your phone.  You will have to either rebuild your iTunes library with this content and sync again to restore it to your phone, or purchase 3rd party software to copy it from your phone to iTunes prior to syncing (such as Touch Copy).
