Best Buy is giving a 10% bonus when you purchase a Best Buy egift card. Best Buy is a good option for exchanging store gift cards for 3rd party gift cards like Disney. So, this can be a helpful strategy for saving on a Disney vacation.
10% Bonus (Details)
This deal is being offered between November 5th to the 18th. When you purchase a $150 Best Buy egift card, you’ll get a $15 bonus “code.” These codes are basically gift cards with an expiration date. The code will be emailed to you on December 1st and expires on December 14th. This means you’re window for using it is only two weeks long.
Maxing It Out
There is a cap on the number of gift cards you can purchase. The maximum is three $150 gift cards. This means you’d end up with $450 in egift cards and $65 in bonus codes.
Best Buy My Rewards
Don’t forget to log in or sign up for a Best Buy My Rewards account. When you purchase egift cards, you’ll earn My Rewards, worth roughly around 2% of your purchase price.
Will Not Stack With Amex Offer
There was a recent Amex Offer to save $25 on $150 spent at Best Buy. Unfortunately, because this new bonus offer is handled through Cash Star on the Best Buy website, it does not code as a Best Buy purchase with Amex. So, this is a friendly disclaimer. If you try to take advantage of both deals at the same time, it won’t trigger the Amex Offer.
This Deal for Disney GCs
You’ll need to use the gift cards and codes to purchase Disney gift cards in-store. If you try it online, it’s very likely your order will get cancelled.
Every Best Buy we’ve visited sells Disney gift cards. Best Buy policy allows for using their gift cards in-store for third party gift cards. We’ve done it and never had a problem.
However, it honestly depends on the person checking you out. Anytime you’re using store gift cards for third party gift cards, some people report having problems. Sometimes you get someone at checkout who doesn’t know and says they won’t do it. I can tell you from experience at Target, it won’t help to argue. Just come back later and go through the line with a different person at checkout.
That being said, here’s the rule we live by with these kinds of deals. Ask yourself, “Would I be able to responsibly spend these gift cards (Best Buy) if I can’t use them to buy other gift cards?” If you shop at Best Buy from time to time or could easily spend them during the holiday season, go for it.
