Refund to gift card possible?

Hi , I am wanting to return an item I bought and I see I am eligible until July 3rd. It looks like refund would go back to the card I purchased with but I had to close that account recently due to fraud and so my question is if it is possible to have them put my refund onto a best buy gift card rather than refunding it to my Visa card.

Re: Refund to gift card possible?

Hi there, Chadw97,  


Welcome to the Best Buy forums!


Thanks for reaching out to see what your return options are for this purchase.  Dealing with a compromised account is no fun at all, so I understand wanting to see about a store credit, instead of the return going back to the compromised account.


Generally, it should not be a problem to get a store credit instead of having the funds returned to your original credit card/bank card.  I know I’ve done it in the past when I knew there was something else I was going to get at a later time.  Just make sure that when you do the return you are specific with the associate that you are looking for a store credit, so that they don’t accidently process it back to your original payment.


If that does happen, your bank should be able to either provide you with a refund, or in some cases, the refund would process to the new account (assuming a new one was created).


I hope this helps!
