Another great perk we got when we bought the new refrigerator from Best Buy was the rewards. Yesterday morning I received a certificate for $30 in my email, just for buying the fridge with them. I’m not a big fan of these certificates since they expire and you have to print them out but I will say I’ve cashed in close to $200 in rewards over the past year:
The program basically gives you 1 point per dollar spent. When you reach 250 points they send you a $5 dollar certificate. You can chose to bank your points which is how I got the $30. When I signed up I put the little key tags on my parents and the wife’s parent’s key chains. I told them anytime you shop at Best Buy, please scan the card. I also offer family and friends to help them upgrade their TV’s or appliances and I will go pick up the items for them. Last year I bought 3 HDTV’s from Best Buy for family. I normally put the purchase on my Citi card, get Thank You points and also get the Best Buy Reward Zone points. They write me a check and I pay Citi back. After spending a certain amount of money you can also become a Premier member which means you get 1.25 points per dollar spent.
This certificate for $30 will expire in August. There’s nothing I really need from Best Buy at this time so I will just add it to my gift card collection and set a reminder on my phone to use it before August.
