Let us use best buy rewards and gift cards to purchase gift cards

Status: Acknowledged

I am a best buy elite plus member. I spend several thousand dollars a year a best buy. One of the main reasons I do that is the rewards program. I enjoy being able to use rewards to buy Microsoft gift cards to buy Xbox games. I have not bought a physical copy of a game in 5 years, but I still go to Best buy for my Xbox cards. Relatives know that I enjoy best buy gift cards for holidays. If you cannot allow us to buy gaming gift cards with our rewards, then you have lost my business. I will gladly cancel my best buy credit card and take my business elsewhere if you are going to take away the biggest benefit of shopping there.

This has always been a thing at Best Buy. They claim its to minimize fraud.

It is also double dippiing. You don't get rewards when you use a gift card but you do get rewards when you buy one. So using free money to buy free money returns a negative. 


And using a gift card to buy a gift card just does not make any sense, unless your intent is to get more rewards without  actually purchasing anything
