Rewards Points

Status: Acknowledged
by JerryHuot on ‎10-04-2018 09:44 AM

My wife buy gift cards for points to use for gas discounts, so when I spent $1695.00 a month ago using gift cards, I thought I would get my points. That did not happen because I used gift cards. I buy Starbucks gift cards and get points from Kroger, I spend the money at Starbucks and get points from Starbucks with no problems, I have spent a lot of money at Best Buy in the nineteen years I have lived here and will spend no more because of not getting points.

It is correct that a My Best Buy member would not get My Best Buy rewards points when using a gift card(s) to make a purchase. The reason for this is that when purchasing a gift card from us a My Best Buy member should get My Best Buy rewards points.

Sounds frustrating.  

 

However you only get points for buying the Gift Cards from Best Buy not using them. 

 

The reason is because people would buy a $100 gift card and get the reward.  Then they would use the card and get the reward again.

 

To allow rewards on both ends would be double dipping.
