The Best Buy® Credit Card does not offer price protection. The Best Buy® Credit Card’s lack of a price protection benefit is not uncommon these days, as more and more credit cards have dropped this perk. Recent advances in price-tracking technology have led to a dramatic increase in price protection claims, making the benefit too expensive for some issuers to sustain.
In general, credit card price protection allows cardholders to receive a refund for the difference between an item’s original purchase price and a lower price advertised within the following 60 to 120 days. Coverage amounts and excluded items vary, depending on the credit card issuer.
The Best Buy® Credit Card does not offer extended warranty, unfortunately. However, Best Buy offers its own protection plan that customers can sign up for, so that they’re covered when a manufacturer warranty ends. But this will not be free of charge, unlike extended warranty benefits offered through credit cards.
No, there is no annual fee for the Best Buy® Credit Card. So you don’t have to worry about paying a cent for just having it. You can keep it open with 0 balance and it will help you improve your credit score. Just remember to use it from time to time to avoid it being closed due to inactivity.… read full answer
