You can add this offer to your card in your Amex login or by tweeting #AmexBestBuy from a linked Twitter account. See How To Sign Up For Multiple American Express Sync Offers for more information.

The Fine Print

  • Valid through September 5, 2016
  • $250 can be spent in one transaction or combined between multiple transactions
  • Valid in-store or online at bestbuy.com
  • Not valid on e-gift card purchases (since these are processed by Cashstar)
  • 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 usually comes up twice per year, once in the summer and once at year’s end. It’s 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 split up a charge with up to 10 different credit cards in Best Buy stores.

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.

  • Remember to Shopkick when you make Best Buy purchases
  • Remember to go through a shopping portal for online purchases (might not work for gift cards)
  • For MR-earning cards, enroll in the 2x points offer at Bestbuy.com for an added bonus there for online orders

There are a number of other new Amex Offers which we’ll post about soon. Just wanted to put this one in a dedicated post to give it its own discussion since it’s probably the most useful of them all.

It’s slightly better if you got it on an AmEx card where you added the previous offer of 2x points at Best Buy.

3 of 7 (my 3 MR cards). Didn’t have it on mine or my wife’s SPG primary or AU.

Excludes corporate gift card purchases.

What does this mean? Do Ebay gift cards still count?

Got this on all 3. YAY! There’s also a $20 off $100 at Macy’s offer that just started today. Happy Shopping!

Marcus, use twitter

You know I’ve never used twitter for an amex offer before. Typically I can’t capitalize on them due to location, but I’m actually moving to an area with a best buy where I’ll be able to jump on this deal before it expires. I’ll have to set up a twitter account and start utilizing it. Thanks for the reminder!

What happens after you tweet them and they connect the offer to your card? Do you still have to login to your online account to add the offer, or can I simply go to the store right now and make my purchase and receive the credit?

Ben

Once you tweet the offer it will show in your online account as added to your card.

anyone know BB in NYC that still sells Visa and Amazon GC?
thx.

May I ask, what denominations of Visa Gift cards does best buy sell?

Mike

My local Best Buy imposed a limit on gift cards when I stopped in. I tried to buy ebay GC’s, and I was told there was a $200 limit, then I was told the was a 3 GC limit. This has never been an issue before. I think it was an over zealous cashier, who then radioed his “supervisor” who was a pimple-faced customer service desk employee.

I see ebay gift cards, but only available for in store pickup. Can anyone see ebay gift cards shipped?

Frank
Frank

I bought eBay gift cards via online (3x $50 as that was the maximum I was allowed to purchase via online). I had them shipped about a month ago. Since then I have tried to buy more of them online but have since only had store pick up as an option instead of mail delivery. Not sure if it’s a supply issue or if it’s intentionally no longer available online

Does purchasing third party gift cards (non e gift cards) online work?

I do not see 2X points offer on my Amex PRD Card. Any idea?

Mike Miller

It was there a few months ago, you would have had to add it. I’m sure they already filled the quota and pulled the offer.

Sent tweet to Amex to add BB offer to my SPG Biz card but never got the offer. Not sure if I am doing something wrong?

Jeff

Nevermind. I got it.

Does Best Buy allow split payments? Like 5*200 VGC split for 4 payments, with $250 each?

Does BB still sell VGCs? I don’t see them when I am searching on the site
