Best Buy Amex Offer Visa Gift Cards
This past weekend Best Buy had a “Black Friday in July” sale and today they are following it up with a “Cyber Monday in July” sale. While these sales can be good for merchandise, I know some people are looking for ways to maximize the recent Best Buy Amex Offer without buying anything.
Visa Gift Cards
Usually around the holidays Best Buy carries Visa gift cards, but other times of year they do not. Thankfully, they seem to be getting some in stock in their stores. While I can’t speak for the rest of the country (I am in Las Vegas), I saw Visa gift cards in-stock at 3 Best Buy stores over the weekend.
Maximizing the Offer
If you were able to get the Amex Offer loaded to your cards, then you will get a $30 credit when spending $300 at Best Buy. The Visa gift cards sold can be loaded with up to $200 each with a $5.95 fee. So, if you purchased 3 X $200 cards and split the payment between two Amex cards with the offer you will make some money.
- Cost: $617.85
- Minus Offer Credits: -$60
- Final Cost: $557.85
- Profit: $42.15
Liquidating the Cards
Best Buy Visa gift cards are PIN-enabled with the PIN being the last four digits of the card number. They work anywhere Visa cards are accepted and may work as a debit card as well. For more information on liquidation, see: How To Liquidate Prepaid Visa & Mastercard Gift Cards
For those not looking to get the latest electronic toy, this is a good deal to cash in those valuable Amex Offers. I personally am glad to see Visa gift cards make a return to my local stores since they have been a valuable tool I have used in the past.
