Quick question!

 

Someone here said, using your Bestbuy CC (purchase made outside) will count towards elite/elite plus status. Is this true? This offer might be pretty good for me to reach elite/elite plus before Black Friday. Someone please let me know, thanks!

Yes. All purchases on the card, even outside of BB, count toward status.

Per their FAQ:

Elite status is automatically awarded when you spend $1,500 or more on qualifying purchases at Best Buy and BestBuy.com in a calendar year, or $1,500 or more in total anywhere on the My Best Buy Visa®.

That feel when you only have the store version and not the Visa version. I am forever pissed off at the guy who signed me up for that version instead.

How is this a gaming deal?

Should we post all credit card cashback and bonus points deals in this forum too? Slickdeals 2 coming right up..

Call Citi, they can convert it for you.

.How is this as a general credit card?  I've never dealt with Citi before.

Wow. That’s pretty sweet. I recently started using my BB Visa for everything to help subsidize my gaming so this will definitely help that!

I’ve used Citi cards for years and have had no problem with them.

It will count as opening a new account and closing an existing account though, right? I'm planning on buying a house soon and I don't wanna mess with my credit.

There's been a google deal up here for weeks - how is that a deal and this isn't? You really have nothing better to complain about?

Nope, I really don't. Lots of otherwise great stuff going on here. Do you feel like there's a lot of complain about here? No one is asking you stay.

See how I flipped that like a 4 for $20 deal at Gamestop?

On a serious note I agree that stupid google express deal shouldn't be here either.

Interesting, I got an email about a "spend 2000 and get 50", wouldn't mind this one instead.

If you don’t like a deal, don’t click on the link...it’s pretty simple. I’d say from the popularity of the google thread, your opinion is in the minority.

Guess I better check the minority report.

Interesting...I got a notification about a week ago that if I spend 2,000 outside BB I get $50. This is a much better deal!

I'm thinking no. Its usually cards by chase only that count.

Good to see another Churner here! It's been a great year so far with the bonuses.

Definitely, I am at $600 with credit card bonus and over $1000 with bank bonus.

Gotta love M&T. I think I made over $1000 in just credit cards alone.

I haven't done any of those yet, though I do know you can do multiple. What are churning right now?

Is this for everyone? I charge everything to this card on a monthly basis so I won't have a problem hitting $500. I didn't get the card in the mail yet.

You are crazy for not jumping in on it! I joined fairly late (though, I may just be subjective) and was able to sign up for 7+ accts. The bonuses pretty much post right after you use one of the DDs to trigger it. I used Wells Fargo (Thanks to that $250 bonus :razz: )The only code that doesn't work is "QJ" unless you're in the listed states (I'm in FL). I didn't do multiple because I'm afraid there might be some retaliation although, nothing has happened. I believe the code QD is alive at the moment.

Yea I did $250 Wells Fargo one too( Cancelled right as soon as i got the bonus though, lots of negative things about Wells Fargo). Currently working on the U.S Bank one, though the bonus still hasn't posted yet. Do you know if chase works with M&T?
