Gift Cards!!

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎11-28-2016 08:24 PM

Why cant I load my gift cards into my account so that I always have a balance to use vs. having to ensure that I have the cards with me when I travel.  You are missing out on HUGE opportunity.  I just used Amazon instead of Best Buy for this very reason.  I was able to go right to my balance without having th physical card.  GET INTO THIS CENTURY PLEASE!!  IT IS A REAL TURN OFF TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOUR STORE.

You aren't the first customer to make this suggestion, and I have to agree with you here. Would anyone else like to see this as an option? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

Last I heard back on this idea I was told they are looking into this. Given I have not heard back since on this I would assume we have decided not to move on with this idea at this time.

Gift Cards should be able to be loaded into Apple Pay. Most restaurants do that now w/ gift cards. Best Buy takes Apple Pay, why not let the app create an apple pay gift card?

I just logged into my account to see if I could do this very thing. I have so many gift cards with small balances and get tired of carrying them around in my wallet. This needs to be added to Best Buy accounts. I would have thought all bigger store websites would already have this option. It's so much easier, especially if I don't plan on going to that store, but while I'm out, I may decide stop in, so always have to carry all those gift cards. It would be sooo much easier

Please add a feature to add gift card balances to accounts

This has been suggested in the past.  Instead of creating a new idea, up-vote an existing one because they do not merge like ideas so it's counter-productive to good ideas gaining traction:
