You can pay your credit card bill by cash or check in any Best Buy store. You also can pay online, by phone, or by mail.
For the uninitiated, the Best Buy credit card has some attractive features for consumers who regularly make purchases in the stores or online.
Types of Best Buy Credit Cards and Rewards
- My Best Buy cardholders earn 5% cash-back rewards on all purchases.
- Cardholders who qualify for Elite Plus get an extra 1% off.
- Watch for Flexible Financing deals for zero-interest-charges purchases.
Both also have standard rewards offers for cardmembers. The retailer offers 5% back on Best Buy purchases for both cards but My Best Buy Visa cardmembers can earn 3% cash-back rewards on gas purchases, 2% on grocery and dining purchases, and 1% on all other purchases.
The standard My Best Buy store credit card can be used only at Best Buy stores or Best Buy affiliates. Its affiliates are websites or apps that link customers to Best Buy offers.
Which credit card you receive is determined only when you apply.
Best Buy has additional rewards for its Elite Plus customers. Cardholders can qualify to be Elite Plus members after spending $3,500 at Best Buy or an affiliate in one calendar year. After earning Elite Plus status, cardholders earn 6% cashback on Best Buy purchases.
Credit Card Rates
The My Best Buy cards carried annual percentage rate interest charges with variable rates between 23.24% and 20.24% and fixed rates from 9.00% to 26.24%. My Best Buy Visa cards were issued with variable rates of 10.74% to 27.99% and non-variable rates from 9.99% to 20.24%.
Which card you get is determined only when you apply for a card.
One attractive feature at Best Buy is the Flexible Financing feature for big-ticket items, which allows purchases to be paid over time at zero interest. Currently, appliance and Geek Squad purchases over $599 can be paid off over 18 months at no interest.
This is an unusually good deal if you're certain you can pay off the entire balance within the allotted time frame. Otherwise, it's a very bad deal since you will have to pay a high interest rate retroactively for the entire promotional period on any outstanding balance still owed.
Special financing offers do not earn cash-back rewards.
Both cards allow customers to create and manage their accounts online. By using the online feature, cardholders can update their personal information, view transaction activity, and check their card balance.
Visa offers consumers zero fraud liability in the event of a lost or stolen card. Any lost or stolen cards should be reported to the company as soon as possible.
