Best Buy Rewards program changing: TWO major changes!

If you are a member of the Best Buy Rewards program (aka “My Best Buy” program), they are changing the terms, and there are two major changes, one is good news, the other is kinda sideways.

The good news? Effective immediately, “My Best Buy” members get free shipping without a minimum purchase amount required.

The sideways news? Effective February 14 in 2023 (it’s their Valentine’s Day gift?), the Best Buy rewards program ENDS for all EXCEPT for those who have the “Best Buy Credit Card”. If you don’t have the BB Credit Card, you can apply for it, and they have a couple of special promotions for it to entice you to “cross over”.

If within 60 days (of February 14, 2023) you don’t get the “Best Buy Credit Card”, Best Buy will issue a rewards certificate for the points remaining in your account. Not sure if this will be for the total amount or following the standard points redemption rules.

Contact their toll-free customer service for questions and complications and such…
