[Expired] Amex Offers: $25 off $250 at Best Buy

This deal has expired and is unfortunately no longer available. Never miss another deal again by signing up for free and instant notifications of new posts.

The Offer

Amex released another one of their twice-annual Best Buy offers. Here are the two versions of the offer:

  • Spend $250 at Best Buy or bestbuy.com and get $25 back as a statement credit
  • Spend $250 at Best Buy or bestbuy.com and get 2,500 Membership Rewards points

The Fine Print

  • Expires 12/31/17
  • Valid at any participating location in the US and US Territories
  • Not valid for e-gift card purchases. Excludes corporate gift card purchases.
  • Excludes Best Buy Express, Geek Squad services made outside of Best Buy, Best Buy Parts Store, Best Buy Private Store & Auction or at standalone Pacific Sales stores

Our Verdict

This offer isn’t (yet?) available via Twitter, it’s showing on many cards in the login. Personally, my cash cards got this offer, but none of my points cards got it.

This is from the more useful Amex Offers since Best Buy stores, and even bestbuy.com, sell numerous gift cards which make it easier to maximize the offer. Check out this comprehensive post Everything you ever wanted to know about Buying Gift Cards at Best Buy to learn more about which gift cards to buy at Best Buy in-store or online. Options include $200 Visa gift cards for $205.95, eBay gift cards, gas gift cards, restaurant gift cards, and more. The options are slimmer online, but they do now have eBay and dining gift cards (Starbucks, etc.) online. You can also buy Best Buy physical gift cards to trigger the offer (single $250 Best Buy gift card can be found here).

You can split up a charge with up to 10 different credit cards in Best Buy stores. Online you’re limited to using one card per order.

There aren’t any easy resell ideas here, but still useful for regular use at 10% off + points. And of course it could be useful for buying electronics too. Best Buy will usually match competitors prices so you can get a really good deal by adding this 10% off.

Is there a way to get Amex Offers via Twitter if they don’t appear on your Offers?

Only if they choose to run it as a twitter promo, they have not chosen to do that with this one (at this point anyway).

It’s only in my personal cards, not business.

Are they still carrying $200 VGC? I couldn’t find any this summer.

They stopped for a while…and then started back up again. At least the stores that I visit.

Woah- no best buy offers (not even on the one personal that didn’t get it) but the Martha Stewart 25 off 75 showed up on most all cards and it was NOT there before. Saw the martha offer on old interface logged out, logged in on the new interface and the offer wasn’t there then logged back in on this old one, offer there. You’re a genius P!

Check for the Maggiano’s Wine Company offer of $20 off $25. They have an introductory offer of 3 bottles of wine and a corkscrew, free shipping or $29.95 before tax. Makes it around $11 for 3 bottles of wine and a corkscrew. It is subscription so you will need to cancel right after it ships.

Thanks, this wasn’t available on my 2 MR cards on the regular login but it was available from your link.

It’s too bad I didn’t know about this for all of the previous offers that didn’t show up. Has this happened before for you?

BTW, there is also targeted offers for Petco, P.F. Chang’s and several others.

Would the new Marriott portal trigger the 1000 point bonus if I used it to buy best buy gift cards?

ddt

I just did. Got 1186 points instantly including the 1000 bonus.

By the way, I bought 250 best buy gift cards, 1186 also includes 62 points for Marriott credit card.

My total points at the Marriott rewards more website reflect the newly earned points. However, they are not shown on the Marriott hotel’s website.

Can you change cards as payment when picking up an order at BBY? I originally charged my iPhone X with a Citi card but now want to split payment with my Amex cards that has this offer instead.

I think it’d be better to pay the whole thing with one card given the purchase protection and warranty.

I hope to see GoC cards sold in BestBuy soon – That would work best for me. Got it on my personal cards and additional cards associated. Nothing on business cards

I keep hoping for this too! Originally it was supposed to be Fall 2017, right? Hopefully by the end of the year…

Found this while browsing just now – Get $10 Best Buy GC with $100 Nike Gift cards (2*$50) – https://www.bestbuy.com/site/offer/243457/pcmcat1507754731317.c?id=pcmcat1507754731317

Not bad if you have anything to buy on Nike + use this amex offer.

Flame

Anyone knows if buying GC’s (BestBuy or other wise) online will trigger any CB’s? With all the portal bonuses going around – this is a easier way of meeting the united/southwest/American portal bonuses going around right now

Buying physical gift cards has triggered mileage shopping portals, including spending bonuses, in the past.

Lucky for me, got $25 off from my PRG and 2.5k points for everyday card.

Do not forget to register for Best Buy’s Award Zone program. Gift card purchases count.

If you are buying VGCs they do not count since last year.

No idea if you buy BBY’s own gift cards would count or not.

Buying BBY GC’s will earn points. Spending BBY cards will not earn points under the new rules.
