Provide option to load physical Gift Cards in BestBuy My Account

I just discovered that there is no option in bestbuy "my accounts" section where I can load up my physical bestbuy gift cards like how Amazon provides. It would be a great feature to provide this option to the end users so that they get full benefit out of it as below:

 

  • No need to carry physical gift cards to store (just give the member ID or phone number to look up and use them)
  • No need to physically type the card number and pin at the time of checkout
  • Keep loading the card in my accounts section and use it as needed
  • No need to maintain physical card, remember which card has balance and eliminate chances of a misplaced card

I feel this is a very convenient feature if added for end users that have large number of physical cards. An option to think about.

 

Regards,

When I purchased my HD TV I had spent the previous 18 months or so tellling everyone that all I wanted for Chirstmas and birthday was Best Buy gift cards for the purpose of buying a TV.  Over that time I probably received 15 to 20 cards.  It would have been a great help to have been able to load them into my account as I got them.  It was a little tedious entering them all in at one time when I finally made the purchase online.

Exactly @bobberuchi ! And i think there is a limitation to the number of gift cards you can use per order right? (i cant recall)

 

Imagine you have a wedding registry and you have 25 friends and family give you gift cards of varying denominations and you want to buy a big ticket item online? Impossible if there is a limit to thenumber of gift cards you can use.

At first I though the post was to laod money onto your existing best buy gift card from say a checking account.  Which would not be a bad idea either. However, there would still be the rewards issue for some people.

 

 It could be like lay away.  Say I want to buy a new top of the line HD TV or gaming computer.  I get paid every two weeks and I simply load $50 to my account every pay day.  After 10 pay days I have $500 saved up and I can now buy my TV
