Best Buy Accepts Decade-Old Gift Certificate
The Web site Consumerist.com has traditionally been quite hard on Best Buy, but it posted a story last week about a customers who got a pleasant surprise from the store- redemption of a very old gift certificate.
A reader emailed the site last week asking if Best Buy would accept a gift certificate- issued in 1996- that he had recently found. Last week, the same reader sent a follow-up email sharing the good news that the store, in Springfield, Ill, had accepted it. The certificate had no expiration date and Illinois state laws do not forbid such redemption.
