Never apply for Bestbuy credit card!!!!!!!!!!!

When I plan to buy a macbook pro for bestbuym, I saw there was 10% rewards for the first purchase on a new account if the application for credit card was approved. So I set up an account, applied for the credit card that was approved immediately, and then placed one order for mackbook pro. However, I did not receive the rewards after 15 days post purchase. I think I am not the only one to be deceived.

Re: Never apply for Bestbuy credit card!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning Baobing,


Welcome to the Best Buy forum!


I am not entirely sure how you may have been deceived.  The promotion is pretty straight forward.  If you met the terms of our 10% back in points offer, then we will make sure you are awarded a full 10% back in points.  It can generally take up to 20 days for points from an eligible Best Buy purchase to officially post to a member's account, which would start after an item ordered on has been shipped.  We do need to allow a full 20 days to pass before considering any other potential options.


Do you at least see the everyday 5% back in points pending in your account?  If not, then it could mean the purchase is not eligible for points.  Did you perhaps apply it to a promotional financing offer?  Any portion of a purchase that is applied to a promotional financing offer will not qualify for points.  That would include any promotional offers like the 10% back offer.  I attempted to look over your account but was unable to do so seeing as you signed into the forum via Facebook rather than registering an email address.


With that all having been said, I will need to gather some additional information from you before we can move forward.  Please send me a private message with the information listed below and I will see what I can do to further assist.  To send a private message, you will first want to login to the forum and then click on the blue button in my signature that just so happens to be labeled "Private Message."  I look forward to speaking with you.
