I purchased a Nintendo Switch recently with the 20% cash back for using a Best Buy credit card promotion and it was a pick up order made on February 19th. It was a one day promotion but for some reason in the rewards section it is only showing pending reward points for a purchase made on February 20th.
I would like some clarity on this to make sure I will get 20% cash back on it or I will have to return it.

Greetings, BigBrain, and welcome to the Best Buy forum!
Did you receive an email with a Flash Offer to receive 20% back in points? Did you activate the offer via the email? Did you make a purchase using your My Best Buy credit card on 2/19? Did you apply that purchase to standard financing? If you can answer yes to each of those questions, then you should be golden. We recently had a few Flash Offers that were presented to a selection of random members who have an active My Best Buy credit card, including 20% back in points on a single purchase. I've included the terms for that particular offer below.
The points currently pending in your rewards account are likely the everyday 5% back you can receive for simply using your My Best Buy credit card with standard financing. The remaining 15% back (maximum 5,000 points = $100 certificate) should be awarded within up to 6 weeks. If those points haven't been awarded after a full 6 weeks, then send me a private message and I'll see what I can do to help. A private message can be sent by clicking on the blue button in my signature. In the meantime, let me know if you have any other questions.
Offer valid on 2/19/21 in select stores or on BestBuy.com. This offer is only for the intended recipient of this email. Get 2.5 points per $1 spent (5% back in rewards) on qualifying Best Buy® purchases when you choose Standard Credit with your Best Buy Credit Card. Activate offer and get an additional 7.5 points per $1 spent (an additional 15% in rewards, for a total of 20%) on your largest qualifying single purchase, when you choose Standard Credit with your Best Buy Credit Card. Maximum $100 reward. Points are not awarded on promotional credit purchases. Points will be awarded 5-6 weeks after the promotion ends.
