Good afternoon, Guywhitey,
Welcome to the Best Buy forum, and thank you for connecting with us!
While I do enjoy the 5% back in points I receive when using my My Best Buy™ store credit card, it would be nice to earn points for purchases made outside of Best Buy with the Visa card. I could get points back for gas or when my wife and I go out for dinner. My wife actually has the Visa card, which makes me a little jealous.
An eligible purchase made by our members with Elite Plus status can receive 1.25 points for every $1 (2.5% back); however, that only applies to eligible purchases made at Best Buy. A purchase made outside of Best Buy with the Visa card, no matter a member's status, would be eligible for .5 points per $1 or 1% back. We do occasionally have additional outside spend bonuses though, such as 2% back on dining purchases and 3% back on gas, but most purchases with the Visa will be awarded 1% back in points. Let us know if you have any other questions.
