If it's still relevant, I can sell you up to $300 Best Buy GC.

Can you use My Best Buy certificates to purchase Best Buy or other store GCs?

Yes I know I'm bumping an almost year old thread.

Changes in the Best Buy Rewards earning structure effective today:
Quote
On Aug. 28, some important changes to our Terms took effect. These included changes in how members receive points through our My Best Buy loyalty program. There was no impact on how Elite Plus members and those who use their My Best Buy credit card receive points.
  • My Best Buy members previously received 1 point for every $1 spent. They now receive 0.5 points for every $1 spent.
  • My Best Buy Elite members previously received 1.1 points for every $1 spent. They now receive 1 point for every $1 spent.
  • My Best Buy Elite Plus members receive 1.25 points for every $1 spent. There was no change to how Elite Plus members receive points.
Other important changes to our Terms included:
  • Certain exclusions from eligible purchases at Best Buy Properties.
  • Receiving and using points with My Best Buy Partners.
  • Changes to the Limitation of Liability and Dispute Resolution provisions so customers can resolve issues more efficiently, including filing individual arbitration claims.

Full terms including changes here

Not sure if this is already known. I just came across a way how to extend your best buy certificates. You place a order using your soon to expire certificates then right away cancel the order. When best buy will place the certificate back in your account they will re issue the value of your certificate as a new certificate so you will have a whole new year to use it.

I hope someone can clarify this for me:
I have not been able to use BB GCs in store, without the bar code. However, I called 2 stores yesterday, and they said that it can be done, no problem. Then I went to the store today, and they said it can not be done. They showed me the screen, where there is no field to input the #.
Does anyone know if/how this can be done?
Thanks.

The store is correct, needs either magnetic strip or barcode AFAIK.

Thanks. Is it possible that some stores/cashiers have a different system that allows it?
