My Best Buy credit card purchases outside of Best Buy

Do purchases on my My Best Buy credit card outside of Best Buy count towards elite/elite plus membership spending requirements?

I was a little over $1,500 in spending back in March so i rerouted most of my regular spending to myBBY card and spent over $2,500 (gas, food, and other purchases) by the time my statement closed on April 13. By April 28 i had not received any points from my credit card usage so i called and initiated a missing points investigation. Today (May 4) i do see a big points adjustment, and slight spending adjustment that still leaves me shy of elite plus status.

Does ONLY my spending within Best Buy count towards membership status?

Good morning SilverSonic,


Welcome to our forums!  I’m glad you took the time to join our community to post this question, as I imagine a lot of our My Best Buy® Visa cardholders have found themselves in a similar situation, and I’ll be happy to answer your question.


Our My Best Buy Program Terms actually covers this particular question, and I’ll include the relevant text below:


You become a My Best Buy program Elite Plus member by spending $3500 at Best Buy or or spending $3500 on your My Best Buy Visa during a calendar year. A My Best Buy program member qualifies for Elite Plus status approximately 15-20 days after the member spends a total of $3500 on qualifying purchases.


As stated, it can take up to 20 days before you see your My Best Buy status change.  If you’d like me to double check your My Best Buy status, feel free to use the blue “Private Message” button in my signature to send me your full name, phone number, and email address, and I’ll be happy to review your status further.


Hope this helps,
