What can you buy with a 10% off Best Buy birthday coupon?


Earlier today, I received a 10% off coupon from Best Buy because it is my birthday month (go Geminis!) and I was quite excited because I was thinking of the various things I could treat myself with and save 10% in the process.

However, I noticed the asterisk after the save.  See the Best Buy image.

After scrolling down, I noticed the disclaimer, which of course is in barely readable font.
