Thank you for reaching out regarding your Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra pre-order! Phones can be quite an investment, so it's fair to ask how our My Best Buy program works with these. As you are aware, points are awarded for pre-tax amounts. As such, points awarded for phone purchases would entirely depend on how the phone is purchased.
Should you purchase the phone in one payment, you would then receive points for the pre-tax amount. However, should you choose leasing or installment billing with your carrier, your payments for the phone would ultimately be made to the carrier through your monthly bill, and would not receive points as the only thing you would be paying on our end would be the tax. For more information, you may wish to check out our My Best Buy Terms.
I know this may not be the news you were hoping for as it sounds like you chose installment billing for your phone, but hope it provides clarity in what to expect. If you should have any questions, please let me know.
