My Best Buy® Credit Card


For People with
Fair Credit

Reviews

The My Best Buy Credit Card offers cardholders 5% in rewards for every purchase, or you can choose a deferred financing plan that allows you to pay over time at no interest.

However, if you choose a deferred financing plan and fail to pay back the entire balance by the end of the term, or if you make any late payments, you’ll be charged interest going all the way back to the purchase date. You can read more about these deferred financing plans here.

This card has no annual fee.

There are two versions of this card: the My Best Buy Credit Card Preferred, and the My Best Buy Credit Card. As far as we can tell, there is no difference between these cards.

When applying for this card, you’ll first be considered for the My Best Buy® Visa® (Review), a different card offer from Best Buy. 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 Gold Visa has an annual fee of $59, but if you cancel your card within 30 days you won’t have to pay the fee.

Where can I use my My Best Buy® Credit Card?

This card can only be used at Best Buy stores. There is another version that can be used anywhere Visa credit cards are accepted called the My Best Buy Visa.

To see our comparison of both of these cards, see our Review of the My Best Buy Credit Card and the My Best Buy Visa.

The worst experience ever!!! Don't apply for this Credit Card company!!!

The worst experience ever!!!What they are basically doing is lying to you in the store, where they telling you that you are getting a CC for 18 month no interest, and all of the sudden after 15 payments (I made auto-pay, not to be worry about it) you get a letter where they telling you that; you are paying interest. Because my CC promotion was for 12 month, not 18 month!!!! I was mad and I am still mad the way they pull-sheet me and everybody. Plus they charged me interest after 5 month after I open this CC account, I made another purchase in the store ''Iphone", where I am paying 50% cash, and the remaining balance I put on CC. I went thru the statements and I find out that after my second purchase they charged me every month interest for no reason but "I still have 7 month with no interest right??". I am very disappointed about their Cred Card service. I will never ever again buy anything from them it's just a scam.

Added $200 6 months later! Beware

I made a purchase at Best Buy with this card and received a store credit as part of the promotion. I used the store credit a few days later to help buy a computer (that I wouldn't have bought without the store credit!). 6 MONTHS LATER they contacted me demanding that I pay them the amount of the store credit because they (not me!) had made a mistake in the original promotion. BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND THE RETAILER I HAVE NO APPEAL! Beware buying at Best Buy. Beware getting caught in their honeypot - even if you walk out of the store with store credit they still have their hooks in you.

Best Buy Credit Card SUCKS

If I could give a negative star I would. They are charging 26-28% interest very soon after your purchase. Avoid. Go with New Egg or Tiger Direct. Best Buy SUCKS!

Customer Service Stinks

No option to speak to a human when you call the number listed on the website. Lost my card; no option for that either. Terrible!

Rude

I tried customer service number too make a comment. Apparently they didn't like what i had to say and hung up on me. I then called rewards number and they just offer automated deals. No human to interact with. I won't be using this card ever again. I got it for the rewards to save for a computer. I found out you have to use rewards by a certain date. You are unable to accumulate over time. There ia nothing i need or want at best buy at the moment, but i have to use $10 by tomorrow or i lose it. What a crock. It's there way of getting you in the store to waste money ever month. Shame in them.
