My Best Buy® Visa®

For People with
Fair Credit



Use the My Best Buy® Visa® (formerly the My Best Buy™ Mastercard) for deferred financing on eligible Best Buy merchandise or to earn rewards.

You’ll get 5% back in rewards for Best Buy purchases (6% back for My Best Buy Elite members), or you can choose a deferred financing plan for purchases of $199 or more. However, these deferred financing plans can be dangerous because if you don’t pay back the entire balance in full by the end of the term, or if you make a late payment, you’ll be charged interest on the full balance going all the way back to the purchase date.

You can read more about these deferred financing plans here.

When applying for this card, you’ll first be considered for the My Best Buy Platinum Visa. If you don’t qualify for that, you’ll next be considered for the My Best Buy Credit Card Preferred; then you’ll be considered for the My Best Buy Credit Card; then you’ll be considered for the My Best Buy Gold Visa.

The My Best Buy Gold Visa has a $59 annual fee, but if you cancel the card within 30 days you won’t have to pay the fee. The other versions of this card have no annual fee.

Can I get cash with my Best Buy Visa?

You may be able to get cash out of an ATM with your Best Buy Visa as a cash advance, but this will be very expensive and we do not recommend it. Learn about how cash advances work here.

This is a store-branded card with lots of bad reviews. You may be able to get better rewards and terms with a cash back credit card that isn't for a specific store.

Where can I use my My Best Buy® Visa®?

Great Benefit

Not sure why there are so many reviews. I have used my card several times for purchases. I always make a purchase when their is 'no interest for 12 months' or more. The very first purchase I made was for a very big TV; I kept making payments, but was short when interest kicked in. I called the credit card people, they said make your last payment the balance and they removed all interest. Do not get this card if you cannot make the payments, period; if you are responsible than interest free payments are a great deal.

Great card for responsible People

So I see a lot of people complaining about this card , I have the version where it can be use anywhere . I see some people on here that cannot even spell properly. If you can’t even spell I don’t know how you even got approved for this card . Anyways like someone else mentioned if you’re responsible and you make all your payments on time then honestly this is a really good credit card for people new to credit. They tell you everything in crystal clear before you get the card of exactly how much the interest rates are , how much time you have to pay your items off before the interest takes place ; I have 30 months to pay off $750 dollars with no interest ..: I paid 748$ for what I needed in Best Buy and now I’m gonna pay $748 for it . If you can’t pay $750 over 30 months then you shouldn’t have a credit card . Plain and simple . I buy so much stuff from Best Buy also it’s ridiculous so this card I just got a month ago is going to come in handy many more times down the line! Great card , oh yeah and the $59 annual fee is worth it if you take the points and use them towards purchases and consider no interest the $59 pays itself .Cheers folks

DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got this card while I was purchasing a brand new TV and Best Buy workers brought up this credit card and was hounding me to sign up and said lot of good things about this card like rewards, cash back etc. and i do buy lot of things from best buy so I signed up, which was a biggest mistake. My original tv price is 1515 now I am being charged a interest of 1000$ for a pending balance of 770 which is humongous and ridiculous!! They have highest interest rates ever. Called customer service they are extremely rude and said there is nothing they can do about the charges. This is really frustrating to be on phone with them and to receive rude responses. I am closing down on my citi bank credit cards they are a huge rip off DO NOT GET SIGN UP FOR THIS CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great card

Everyones complaing about this card but I have the bestbuy only one and it is AMAZING they give you 6 , 12 , 18 and even 24 months to pay it off with NO interest . Yeah if you go over the time they chargee you the interest but just be responsible and pay it before time is up. Its a creditcard they have interest and yeah ita high so maybe you ahould have checked that before you got it ?? I have never paid any interest . I buy so much here . I recently bought a fridge and pay only 90$ a month for 18 months and save soo much on interest withoit having to spend a couple thousand dollars up front .

Best card I’ve ever had

I am surprised by all of the negative reviews I’ve read on the Best Buy VISA. It is by far the best credit card i’ve ever had. I only use it for my gas, groceries and Best Buy purchases but I’ve earned enough certificates to buy my kids Apple watches and Computers for Christmas. I pay my card off every month so do not have to worry about the interest fees and have had no issues in the four years I have had the card.
