$25 off $100+ at BestBuy.com.   Click the VISA CHECKOUT button at the bottom of the cart page (you have to login), not the Best Buy Pay Checkout button.  Its supposed to be good until end of monday but they can pull it anytime.

 

FAQs:

  • Works on current orders, pre orders, whatever.  
  • It'll prorate as long as the amount is $95+.  
  • It does not work on digital orders.
  • If you order 3 things over $100 total, cancel 1 thing so your order drops below $100, the discount will be completely removed and you will be charged the regular amount
  • yes it stacks with GCU

 

Yes, it does stack with any daily deal, GCU, weekly deal, etc.  This weeks deal is B1G1 40% off select 3DS/Wii U games, see the weekly best buy sticky thread for more info.

 

Its a great way to pre order games, two $47.99 (GCU) games will total $95.98 and it will take $24 off, or $12 each game making each $36+tax.

RE 7, Persona 5, Yakuza 0 or Tales of B... the backlog never ends.

Last time this was supposed to last 10 days and disappeared after about 18 hours, so if you want to do this jump on it ASAP don't wait around - the page says it should be good until end of 12/12/16, but Visa or Best Buy limits how many times it gets used and once it hits that limit they take away the offer.

Just to be sure, if I have a AMEX offer spend $250 get back $25 statement credit, the visa checkout should stack with that right?

Tried ordering Persona 5 and RE 7 but since my debit card expires 03/17 I couldn't because "We cannot accept credit cards that expire within 15 days of a pre-order shipment date".

I thought they charge your card immediately?

Hmmmm, decided to preorder Horizon Zero Dawn CE with this. $77 after tax, not too shabby.

yes, AMEX offer will stack with visa checkout.  visa checkout takes amex etc no problem

 

it works with gift cards but the credit card portion has to total $100 or more.  so if you had a $150 order, paid with $49 in gift cards it'll work fine but if you have a $100 order and pay $20 in GCs or reward certs the $25 discount will disappear

 

they do a hold/auth on CC/debit card for the amount, and roll that preauth sometimes for a while but they don't actually charge until shipment.  theres no fix for if your debit card expires before the ship date.  you can use a fake date for credit card and it might work but it might fail authorization too.

"Discount will be automatically applied to a qualifying BestBuy.com purchase of $100 or more when you select Visa Checkout as your only payment method."

As far as I know BB doesn't give us the option to split payments online to different debit/credit cards, so I assume they are talking about reward certificates and gift cards as alternate payment forms that could split the payment method. Last time around I picked up the Xbox One S BF1 Limited Edition for $299.99 and added a $120 reward certificate, and the discount remained on the order just fine. But perhaps it didn't matter because my order total after the reward certificate was still over $100. I would just apply the gift card in checkout and see if the discount stays, if not you can always remove the GC again.

Thanks OP for the heads up on the offer being back, I think I will sit this round out since there is nothing that I really need.

WARNING: Best Buy is enforcing the limit of 1 discount per customer this time around.

On my second order, the discount shows up on the final page of the checkout

but the discount magically changed to $0.00 in the order confirmation.

And yes, I checked the best buy website and the discount was lower to $0.00 as well (on the second order)

 

edit:
I'm the only one affected??

maybe it was just a glitch??

I guess you also don't have to hit $100 pre tax huh? I got Horizon CE that's $95 due to GCU, and Visa Checkout discounted $24 instead of $25.

remember to click on visa checkout in the cart page, not just regular best buy checkout.  you will have to login (or create) a visa checkout account.  if you don't see that step you pressed the wrong button

For pre-orders that ship in 2017, does it count for your 2016 myBB status towards Elite?

It's only working for me if the order is over $100, won't work when I just do Horizon CE by itself.
