This would be great if I was looking for an Xbox X or hadn't already bought a PSVR.

Thanks OP

Is cashstar legit? I'm really tempted to do this, but I've never heard of them before.

Can I buy gift cards with a gift card?

Edit: No. This offer isn't directly from BB, cashstar takes credit or PayPal

it's legit. If you go to best buy gift card page, it will link you to cashstar website.

They had this deal back in July or August. Worked like a charm. Make sure you put your BB rewards member ID in the field on the cashstar page. I didn't for one of my purchases and had to call them for a manual add of the certificate.

They are legit. I've used this deal every time it pops up and it's always via Cashstar.

That's just the third party BBY uses to handle it.

Good deal. I have been thinking of getting either a switch or an X1X. I'd hate to go through all this and BB not have stock during the usage window though.

Does anyone know how the saving codes work? If I were to use a different Paypal/CC to buy more than 3 (looking at buying maybe 5), can I use all of the codes in the purchase of a single item?

This might swing me to grab and X1X.

From my understanding from doing this deal in the past, the codes are similar to GCs in that they have a GC number and PIN. They just expire on a set date (although...). Thus, they should be treated towards the GC limit on a single order like all other GCs, which I think is capped at 10.

Even though it's through CashStar, does anyone know if still count as a purchase towards Elite Status (I'm guessing yes since you get Reward points)?

If I remember correctly, yes it does count towards the $1500/$3500 spending.

I just don't think I can pull the trigger on this without knowing the stock level of consoles. If none are in stock before 12/14, I would be so pissed, especially since there will be hardly any games left to buy after getting plenty on BF.

Hmm. You just cleared everything up! For some reason I was thinking the entire 150 plus 15 had to be used in that 2 week window. I may do this then. Thanks

The only turn off is that the $15 savings code must be used between 12-1 to 12-14.  By then Black Friday deals are probably all sold out.

True, but usually best buy does a B2G1 around that time as well.

I bought 2 of the gift cards and ordered myself a Switch, which is still in stock at BB's site. Then I should get 30 dollars in savings to order Xenoblade 2 for 18 bucks when it comes out.

Has anyone had issues with their credit card not going through? The GC-buying interface is a bit dated—it isn't accepting my Best Buy card, even though it's active and there's no balance. 

 

Wanted to see if anyone else had encountered this before I call their customer service.

This may be a stupid question, but you can use these e-gift cards in a brick and mortar BB store, correct? The offer says the $15 "Savings code" may be redeemed in-store, but it doesn't actually say anything about the e-gift cards themselves. Was planning on buying a couple of these, as long as I can use them on BF in store.

Yes. I have had this problem with a different card. I called CS for my card and told then I'd be buying $150 three times from Cashstar and it worked fine. Keep in mind you won't get bonus BB rewards for using your BB card because you're technically buying from Cashstar.
