Best Buy Rewards can no longer Buy Gift Cards
Best Buy stopped allowing the use of Best Buy gift cards to buy third party gift cards back in May 2018, but Best Buy Rewards certificates still worked to buy gift cards at that time.
Beginning sometime within the past few weeks (likely February 10th), Best Buy Reward certificates can no longer be used to buy third party gift cards, as reported by multiple readers. You can find the change in the terms. They’ve added the following exclusion under Non-Qualifying Redemptions: “point of sale activation (“POSA”) cards.”
It’s possible Best Buy Rewards will still work on things like XBOX gift cards and maybe some others, similar to the way it works with gift card conversion. We’ll update our post on the Best Buy Rewards Program and Credit Card Review, 5-6% Back on Best Buy Purchases to reflect the change.
