Your Best Buy® Credit Card number can only be found on the front of your physical card. It’s the 16-digit number located right between the card’s chip and the cardholder’s name. This is where you can find the Best Buy® Store Card’s number, too.
You will need this number, as well as the expiration date and security number of your Best Buy® Credit Card, when making online and over-the-phone purchases.
To find your credit card number without the card, try looking for it on your monthly statement. Some credit card companies will disclose the full number on their statement, while others will only show the last 4 digits, though.
You may also try signing in to your online banking account to search for your credit card number in your account information.… read full answer
Ultimately, calling your card’s customer service phone number may also work. After some thorough identification, you might be able to get your full credit card number from a representative.
The only difference between the Best Buy® Credit Card and the Best Buy® Gold Visa Credit Card is that the former comes with a $0 annual fee, while the latter charges $59 per year. Your creditworthiness will determine which of the two you get approved for. Both cards offer the same rewards, which include 2.5 points / $1 (5% back) at Best Buy along with 10% back in rewards (5 points per $1 spent) on your first day of purchases made within the first 14 days.… read full answer
Here’s where you can use a Best Buy® Credit Card:
The Best Buy Store Card can only be used at Best Buy.
The Best Buy® Credit Card and Best Buy® Gold Visa Credit Card can be used anywhere that accepts Visa.
All three cards offer 2.5 points / $1 (5% back in rewards) at Best Buy, and 6% for Best Buy Elite Plus members. Best Buy Elite Plus membership is awarded after spending $3,500 in a calendar year.
The Best Buy® Credit Card and Best Buy® Gold Visa Credit Card offer 10% back in rewards (5 points per $1 spent) on your first day of purchases made within the first 14 days.
The Best Buy® Credit Card and Best Buy® Gold Visa Credit Card offer 2.5 points per $1 spent on Best Buy purchases, 1.5 points per $1 spent at gas stations, 1 point per $1 spent at restaurants, bars and grocery stores, and 0.5 points per $1 spent on all other purchases.
You can use your Best Buy® Credit Card and Best Buy® Gold Visa Credit Card pretty much anywhere as Visa is widely accepted internationally. However, using the Best Buy Store Card is restricted to Best Buy. Regardless of where you use your Best Buy credit cards, you’re still going to get the most bang for your buck at Best Buy. You earn rewards at a higher rate, and those rewards are only redeemable for Best Buy gift certificates.
If rewards on gas and restaurants are what you’re looking for, the PenFed Platinum Rewards offers 5 points / $1 spent on gas purchases. And the Capital One SavorOne gives you 3% cash back on dining and entertainment. And they can both be used anywhere.
You can check your Best Buy® Credit Card application status either online or by calling the Best Buy® Credit Card center at (888) 574-1301. Both methods are quick and easy, and will tell you whether your application is approved, denied or still pending.
Give the representative your application reference number. If you don’t have it handy, Best Buy can look it up with your name and SSN.
If you’re approved, your card should already be on its way. If more than 10 business days go by, you should call the Best Buy® Credit Card center again to check. If you’re denied, you can always ask for reconsideration. Citibank issues both versions of the Best Buy® Credit Card, so you’ll have to go through them. And you’ll need to convince them that your credit or income is actually better than it appeared on your application. The number is (888) 201-4523.
