It’s that time of year again – kids’ summer vacations are winding down, and parents are likely either counting down the days until they can reclaim their homes for a bit of peace and quiet, or are about to cry while dropping their kids off at the dorms for college. Being a student is no easy feat – especially on a student’s budget – so when your family and friends are willing to help out, we’ve got the perfect way to help you get the technology you need for you to have a successful year with our Back-to-School Wish List!
A Back-to-School Wish List is a list that you can create under your BestBuy.com account to share with your friends or family of the great tech that will help you throughout your studies. Much like a Wedding Registry, friends and family are able to choose from the list, make the purchase for you, and it is marked as purchased on the list to prevent duplications. You can have up to 20 lists (only one Wedding Registry at a time though) each with up to 50 items.
Sign in to your BestBuy.com account and find an item you would like to add to your Wish List
If you're using a desktop or tablet, click the Add to List button on an item's product details page and then choose the appropriate Wish List to add the item to the list, or select Create a new list, then select Add Item. If you're using the Best Buy mobile app, select the Add to button on an item's product detail page and then select Wish List.
From Best Buy stores:
Open your Best Buy mobile app and sign into your BestBuy.com account (see above details if you don’t already have the app).
Open your list from the More tab on iOS or side navigation on Android and select Add Gifts and then select Start Scanning.
Scan the QR code on the price tag or bar code on the item's packaging to add an item to your list. If the item is eligible to be added to your list, you will be directed to the item's product details page. From there, select Add Gift to Wish list.
*Message and Data Rates May Apply. For full terms and conditions, visit BestBuy.com/mobilefaqs. For info, text HELP to 332211.
A fantastic thing to note is that adding an item to your list does not hold or reserve the item and the price of the item is subject to change. Furthermore, not all items are eligible for our List program, such as products that require a plan (such as some cellular devices).
Now that you’ve got your list created and your items added, you’ll want to share it with your friends and family! Directly from your Back-to-School Wish List, you can choose to share it via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest or e-mail. Also, you may simply choose to have your friends or family search by your first and last name, although that may turn up several results especially if you have a common name. Instead, you may utilize your Wish List’s unique List ID to share with friends and family to bring them straight to your list!
To ensure you don’t get duplications of the same item, the purchaser will want to ensure the following steps are completed.
