But that's harder to find than a Nintendo Switch

Does anyone know if this will work for the AMEX $30 credit back for $300 spent at BB?

Don't think so. E-Giftcards are handled by a separate company.

Sucks that the bonus card only has a 2 weeks limit :-(

Can you buy the $150 e-gift card with a current gift card?

No, the website only accepts credit/debit cards.

Hate that they put a time limit on the bonus credit.

I'm assuming you can preorder games using the code during that window even if they're released later?

Believe BestBuy disabled that recently.  Also can't buy physical BB GCs with digital BB GCs to prevent the digital ones from being compromised.  This used to be almost a no-brainer when they could be converted to physical but not as easy a pull with that option gone. :/

Love these when they come around. Almost as good as a supply of 10% off discounts at bestbuy.

 

But be warned, you will probably get a fraud alert on your credit card when you try to buy from cashstar for the first time.

They are normal e-gift cards with pins and barcodes you can print out.  Even the promo amount is treated like a gift card but supposedly only valid during the 2 week period stated.

The AMEX offer specifically excludes egiftcards, since they're processed by a separate company.

Hmmmm...should I get this and preorder Mario + Rabbids, South Park, and Super Mario Odessy? Then I could use code plus rewards to pick up Battlefront 2.

 

Bah so you can't use BB credit card to pay?

I ordered a $150, when I click view card I get "page not found". Should I give it some time to process? I thought this was reliable since it was advertised on the actual Best Buy site.

 

Edit: It's not showing because I'm outside the U.S. right now.

They are the official bestbuy e-gift card supplier, so should be legit.  Could be a temporary problem with your browser/internet/their server if you just bought it.  They make you go through a challenge where you enter your email and shows a gift screen you click through, maybe you are missing a plugin or security settings are disabling that?  I am assuming you are trying to click on the link they email you a few minutes after purchase.

I tried using my Best Buy credit card to do this deal, but every time I tried it I received a "transaction declined" error. I ended up using two other credit cards for 3 total purchases of $150 each, and both cards required confirming to them that the transaction wasn't a fraudulent charge, like scottman mentioned.  I got the $150 cards within a few minutes, worked fine in checkout.

Do you still get the reward zone points purchasing the gift card through CashStar?

you get reward points, when you are putting in your payment information there is a part where you can put your best buy member id so you get your reward points.

Bought 150 worth on my desktop and for whatever reason the gift card number did not come through. I logged in through my phone and everything popped up fine.

Since when can you not convert this way? I believe it's just YMMV as some stores allow it while others don't.
