Sell BestBuy giftcards through Amazon as a 3rd party vendor

Kind of surprised BestBuy doesn`t already sell their giftcards at amazon already. This would allow you to get more customers by taking money/sales directly from your primary online rival. By accepting amazon credit as payment for your giftcards you can see why this would extremely benefit you.

 

I`d also suggest promos where a customer would be rewarded for purchasing larger amounts of giftcard credit. A $10 bonus per $100, $25 per $250, $75 per $500, $100 per $750 and $125 per $1000. In theory, a person converting the larger amounts of credit would be interested in buying big tickets items which you would then have the chance to upsell warranties on.

Keep in mind that there are two parties involved when any vendor tries to establish a business relationship with a retailer. Our gift cards not being sold on this retailer's website might not be our decision.

upon further review RZ points won`t be giving for the purchases made using the giftcards so RZ points should be given once the cards are purchased. Either that or design a variant giftcard that does issue rz points when used.

Understood I actually was surprised that they sold giftcards to other companies in which compete for sales like Target and Gamestop. If Amazon isn`t an option what about ebay? Any way which you can secure "sales" is a benefit. I also was stunned at the # of unclaimed(lost/forgotten) giftcards.

You actually can't use Amazon credit to buy GCs.
