  • I am an employee at Best Buy; I will go ahead and tell you this is a scam. In North Carolina the only "Event" type ordeal we had as of today was 20% everything in the store. Last night anyone who had a Big Lots Rewards card got a 20% off ahead of time

    For Example:

    I work in the Furniture Department and a-lot of the furniture was on clearance, anything on clearance would have gotten 20% that price (with a Big Lots Rewards Card). Today; All clearance items went back to their regular prices and was bought from the original price with 20% knocked off.
