10% Back in Points on your First Purchase with a Newly Approved My Best Buy™ Credit Card
This promotional offer has been ongoing for a couple of years and is a great way for a member to earn some extra points. Here is how it works:
Q: What purchase qualifies for 10% back in points?
A: After being approved for a new My Best Buy™ credit card, any eligible Best Buy purchase made the first day the card is used.
Q: How soon after being approved do I need to make a purchase?
A: A purchase would need to be made within 14 days.
Q: Is the offer valid on BestBuy.com and in-store?
Q: How long does it take for points to post to my account?
A: It can generally take up to 20 days for points from an eligible Best Buy purchase (35 days for Pacific Sales and Magnolia) to post to a member’s account. Those time frames would start after a purchase has been picked up or delivered.
Q: Would I qualify if I chose a promotional financing offer?
A: No. We do not award points with the use of promotional financing. You would need to choose standard financing.
Q: Can I pre-order an item and qualify for 10% back?
A: Only if the pre-order is fulfilled within 14 days of being approved for a new My Best Buy™ credit card and no other purchases are made.
Q: Why is only 5% back in points pending in my account?
A: It is common for bonus points to not appear as pending with base points and simply post after a full 20 days (35 days for Pacific Sales and Magnolia).
Q: Will I qualify for 10% back if I process a return or exchange?
A: Our system may not recognize the very first purchase as such if any sort of modification is processed after the fact. That would include a return, exchange, or price match.
If you believe that you have qualified for 10% back in points but only 5% back have posted to your account after a full 20 days (35 days for Pacific Sales and Magnolia), then please feel free to reach out to us on the forum and we will see what we can do to help. You can also send a private message to Tasha-BBY or Derek-BBY.
