To make purchases in a Best Buy store, you’ll need to bring your ID so Best Buy can look up your account and verify you’re authorized. To do so online, you first have to save the card as your primary payment method in your Best Buy online account. After that, you’ll be able to make purchases on bestbuy.com before your get your physical card. Your new card should arrive in the mail within 10 business days after approval.
Here’s how to use a Best Buy® Credit Card in store before it arrives:
Tell the Best Buy cashier you’d like them to look up your account.
Give the cashier a government-issued ID.
Make your purchase.
Here’s how to use a Best Buy® Credit Card online before it arrives:
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.
