B&H Payboo Card
« on: May 06, 2019, 06:32:02 PM »

Nobody likes to pay sales tax, but everyone must pay sales tax! B&H, and only B&H, has the solution to the sales tax issue.

Tomorrow, May 7th, B&H will be making a game-changing announcement, and as a loyal customer, I’d like you to be privy to some inside information in advance that will change your shopping experience forever.

Nearly one year ago, the Supreme Court ruled that out-of-state retailers must collect sales tax on internet sales. This, of course, included B&H. For 46 years we have been committed to providing unparalleled customer service, and so we began the tedious process of implementing a way to eliminate the impact this ruling would have on our customers.

We are now ready to launch “Payboo”, the solution to the sales-tax challenge. Tune in tomorrow for details on how to become a part of “Payboo”!

I know you have many shopping choices for creative gear and consumer electronics, but with “Payboo”, there will only be one best choice: B&H!

I look forward to a continued great business relationship and remember, at B&H, the customer always comes first. That’s why we’ve created “Payboo” to solve the sales tax impact for you.

Sincerely,

Menashe Horowitz
CEO

Why does this sound like an April Fool's joke? I guess with a name like PayBoo....

On a serious note, I'm curious what their plans are...

Just saw an ad for 'sales tax sale' where some company discounts price based on sales tax.

Maybe this is along the same concept?

Maybe a type of membership that if you spend a certain amount you get rebates for sales tax?

I think if you pay cash you don't need to pay tax.

Very interesting concept.... not sure how they can offer a 7~10% deduction on everything even sale/door buster items. Doesn’t seem feasible.....

So what's the loophole? How are they doing it?

Considering that's the only rewards the card offers, I'm guessing they're counting on it being offset by income from the CC.

Worthless!
only good for ppl who spend alot (10k +) at B&H. Remember if u use B&H card u also lose out on the regular points that u would of earned on a Chsse or Amex card etc.

Regular CC is 1-2.25% cashback. This is 6-9% cashback. How is it worthless? It's an interesting idea. Not sure how it's worth it for them besides for marketing purposes.

If you're just regular spender at B&H it's not worth it. If u spend 5k -10k then it makes sense to sign up for this CC. IMO
Just another store credit card with a different twist, if you spend at that store enough it makes sense if not dont touch it.
