BBY is promoting another 10% back in rewards. It's an easy way to get elite from purchasing visa gc. haven't bought any GC myself but will try on the weekend.

Best Buy running a deal through 9/6 for 10% cashback when using best buy credit card. Purchase $200 VGC has worked in the past.

$205.95 yields $20.50 rewards backs - 5.95 = $14.55 profit.

Good stuff. Plus you'll gain a little more if you're elite plus.

Should put via BB credit card in the title so ppl don`t confuse it with a reg. Elite/Elite Plus shopping event promo.

If you`re already elite plus you get $5(255 mybb pt) back on a visa normally so this is an amazing deal.

Im about to check my recent receipts because Im sure as far as video games go this 10% doesn't apply. But the other stuff it does work on for potential profit or w/e I gotta look into.

 

So ya like I thought you get 10% on select purchases but not sure what just yet. 

 

*Update: Actually is it 10% on everything but the receipt just says (up to 6%) because it may not be up to date?

You get 10% back on any purchase done with a BBY credit card.

I was about to say, even in your scenario ($1K spent) it would still yield $100 in Rewards.

Yes. Run as debit. PIN is last 4 digits of card number.

No. That's why you need to find a no/low cost way to liquidate them.

Preorders will get the 10% as well. When this ran during Memorial Day I preordered the Kinect-less X1, Sniper Elite 3 and Sunset Overdrive. I got the extra points with the X1 and I have the bonus points pending with Sniper Elite.

Interesting.  This should also qualify for the 12 month financing on purchases over $399 I assume. Does anyone know for sure?

This promotion will not work with any long term interest free financing plan.
Stick to purchases you can pay off in the first month to get the benefit.

Noob on the Blackbird card.  How would you load it using the BB cards?  Here are the ways according to the Blackbird website:

 

  • Add all or part of your paycheck or government payments with Direct Deposit
  • Add checks with the Bluebird Mobile App on your Androidtm device or iPhone®
  • Transfer money from your checking or savings account
  • Add cash at virtually any Walmart checkout register2

It's technically the last bullet. Instead of cash you tell the cashier at Walmart you want to load using debit. You can also load at the kiosks.

Gotcha.  So basically this is a no cost move from PP BB cards to cash?  In theory, could you load the Blackbird and then buy stuff anywhere AMEX is taken or even transfer that into cash via bank transfer?

Yes and Yes. Check out Serve also. Same thing with a few more features. You can only have one or the other.
