Elite membership and reward certificate timing

I am currently a regular rewards member and certificates are automatically issued.  If I make a purchase more than $1500 that would qualify for elite status will the rewards points associated with that purchase be automatically distributed as a certificate or can I put distribution on hold.

Re: Elite membership and reward certificate timing

Greetings gishikaw, and welcome to the Best Buy forum,

 

Great question!  One of the main reasons why I strive to reach Elite status each year (always falling short though) is because of the option to bank points.  I like the thought of being able to save up my points and issue a big certificate.  You will not have the option to bank until you account status has officially been upgraded to Elite, which can generally take up to 20 days after spending the required $1,500.  That just so happens to be the same time frame it takes for points from an eligible purchase to post.  You would qualify for Elite status if you were to make a single purchase over $1,500; however, the points for that purchase would likely post around the same time your status is upgraded and before you could change your certificate preference to bank.

Re: Protection Plans

gishikaw,

 

You can feel free to just send me a private message if you have additional program related questions rather than creating a new thread for each one.  You can earn points when purchasing a Geek Squad Protection plan, as long as you use a qualifying form of payment (cash, credit, debit, check).  Any portion of a purchase that is paid for with a rewards certificate or gift card would not qualify for points.
