[Expired] 15% Cashback on Select Products at Best Buy with Retailmenot (Max $70 Cashback), Stack with Amex Offer

Update: Apparently, this deal is only for select ‘Top Deal Products‘ sold at Best Buy, and it might not work for other products. Looks like my Airpods Pro example (below) is still a good one since that, along with hundreds of other products, are found under the Top Deals Products listings.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Retailmenot is offering 15% cash back on Best Buy online purchases when you click through their portal. Max $70 in cash back.

The Fine Print

  • Offer ends ?? (might be today only, 11/12 ?) Expires 11/16
  • Combine with other offers for an even better deal!
  • Cash back is earned on the qualifying purchase total after any discounts and before any fees, taxes, or shipping and handling are applied.
  • Purchases of gift cards are excluded.
  • Rewards earnings up to $70.00. This cash back reward will not exceed $70.00.
  • Turn off all ad-blocking software.
  • Go directly to bestbuy.com from RetailMeNot to complete your purchase.
  • Provide your email address so we know where to send updates.
  • Once approved, the cash back reward will be available to be redeemed from your RetailMeNot wallet 44 days from purchase date.
  • Not available outside the US.
  • A U.S. phone number is required to redeem wallet rewards.

Our Verdict

Max this out with a $467 purchase to get the full $70 cash back. This offer is overly generous with an incredible 15% rate and a reasonable $467 limit. Sounds like it’ll work on anything excluding gift cards. So, for example, you can buy the new Airpods Pro for $250 and get $37.50 cashback. Or buy a new laptop, iPad, etc and get 15% back.

This also stack beautifully with the Amex Offer to get $30/3,000 on a $300 purchase.

Update: my friend Dave notes that this can also be done in-store by using the bar code found in the Retailmenot app.

Hat tip to my friend Adam

RMN had 10% CB at Best Buy on Nov. 7th. Too bad, a couple of items (12TB WD ext HDD and 5TB WD portable HDD) have gone up to regular price now.

if you have “spend $300 and get 3k MR back” amex offer, you can stack it w this offer

Oo0o yeah

Just stacked this, and it worked. One other flavor of this is spend $300 and get $30 statement credit. On one other note, I received 3k version on AmEx ED and $30 on AmEx Green.

Does it have to be something in the weekly/daily deals to qualify? The website says “on top deal products” but the T&Cs don’t seem to be specific

I remember doing something similar last year for 40 dollars Cashback.

It says “top deal products” at the top. This is a section on the best buy page. It may not be any and all products that get the discount.

I have a few Bestbuy giftcards to burn. Has anyone ever had success using retailmenot on bestbuy with giftcards? I know I have used swagbucks in the past and it posted fine using giftcards.
It is today only as well. This page has the timer for the 15% countdown: https://www.retailmenot.com/view/bestbuy.com

I have this question as well. makes sense to buy $300 in gift cards using AMex offer and then using that gift card for 15% cash back

CJ

Recently, I placed an order through RMN which had part of the order paid with gift cards. The cash back is pending on the sub-total amount.

Thanks.

Can I use Best Buy GC for payment and still earn cash back?

I know you can combine this with AMEX offer ($300 and get $30)…. In my case, I had the AMEX offer available on my account for a few days, but I was unable to add to my card as I was traveling. When I came back to add to my card, it was disappeared from all of my cards…. Do any of you know what I can do to bring it back? I reached out to Amex agent, but no success so far… Greatly appreciate your help!

Dont use your app to check for offers. Use web browser and it should be on the bottom of the list

Thomas
Thomas

I always use the desktop browser to add offers.

Stephanie

It will only show a max of 100 offers on the desktop browser site. I had to add a bunch of random shit offers to a card I rarely use to get the good ones to show up on a card I wanted them on.

I see. It’s strange that I saw the Bestbuy offer few days ago and it disappeared. I have about 90~100 offers saved but have only 2~3 offers that have not been added. So I’m not sure if Bestbuy pull the offer earlier than they expected. And trying to figure out how I can bring the offer back… spoke to Amex agent, but no luck. Any input would be appreciated.

Offers are limited in the number of people they allow to sign up. Offers like the BestBuy one (which they run every so often) always seem to fill up and vanish quickly. If you get those kind of offers, you need to sign up immediately because once a fixed number sign up, they remove them from everyone else’s list if they have not signed up. Periodically, they will re-open them and it might pop up again, so keep checking but don’t count on it.

Also, as mentioned by someone else, the max displayed available offers is currently 100, so if when logged in you see 100 available, start adding a bunch of useless ones to clear out some space and try logging in again after and see if anything new pops up. You can “have” more than 100 but only 100 will show, so you need to open space.

Thomas

That’s really helpful… It seems like the offer filled and vanished quickly. Thank you. I guess I have to look out for the offer to come back…

What are top deal products? It’s too vague….

mavic2zoom
mavic2zoom

correct, they are being vague about the offer and it leaves room from them to decline meaning they’ll tell you everything is fine today but when you call looking for your payout 44 days later, at that point they’ll tell you the drone wasn’t part of the top deal or the weekly ad, whatever that means.

can someone clarify please?

I went on to BB website today and clicked on Top Deals / Headphones and saw Airpod Pro is one of those appeared on that page. I took and screenshot and hopefully to argue if they deny my cashback…..

It says 15% back on Top deal items. Does this mean it’s not site-wide?

Eddie B

The app mentions “15% Cash Back on purchases of Weekly Ad items.”

I believe this is what’s meant by top deals. Very important stipulation that’s not well called out on their site.

Stephen

That is interesting since Best buy no longer provides “weekly ads”. I have to buy something anyway that is not on sale. Will report how it goes.

I’m also curious what this covers, it’s not at all clear (imo). I’ve got a few things I’ve been on the fence about, but could be tempted if I knew this would work on those things. Also can’t see my AmEx account offers – happens more times than not – so don’t know if that Best Buy offer is still good. Frustrating, this game of saving money…

To me this seems clear that it is not all items, but limited to the items under “Top Deals” on the website.

As far as RetailMeNot cash back offers, I have had no problems with them. It usually takes a day before I get an email confirming my purchase though. They have had some offers that are significantly better than others-too bad they are not listed on cashbackmonitor.

Mike

does it work with store pickup? I’d rather not have a package with a high value item sitting at my door and can’t make it in store today.

Jonny

Is there any way to stack this with pricematching? The item I want is on sale at crutchfield.com – a retailer they explicitly state they will pricematch.

Mark V
Mark V

Personally I would buy the item online at the current price and do an adjustment later. That way the transaction will track correctly, and they will just refund the difference.

Anyone have the Amex offer initially, and now cannot find it? Same thing happened to me with the Verizon offer.

Celia

Did you add it? If not, they probably reached the limit of enrollment. If you did, check the mobile app. Sometimes the offers show on only one or the other. There’s also a view all in the desktop version if you have a bunch of offers added.

Same thing happened with me.

The bestbuy one must have been very popular, it disappeared like 1 day after I first received it, unfortunately forgot to add to card >_<
