Citi Best Buy 20% Rewards - Today Only

Hello everyone!

 

I awoke to an interesting email from Best Buy today. It looks like they're offering 20% back in rewards for any purchase that is made today. I'm not sure if this is going out to everyone or only certain people but I wanted to give those of you with the card a heads up Smiley Wink.Screenshot_20200731-093312_Gmail.jpg

I don't have a BB card, but a reward that high HAS to be targeted. Otherwise they'd lose out on a lot of money. Smiley LOL

Targeted. And I wasn't with that offer.

I got $25 off $100 instead.

I didn't get any recent offers, though I only use it for Best Buy purchases that are infrequent. I even skipped the spend $100 and get a $50 gift card offer last year, but I am kinda kicking myself a little bit for skipping that. 50% back is huge....

BBY must not be doing very well if they're giving away free money. Sure, their stuff is marked up, and I think they're just trying to get people in the doors to move some money.

 

With a discount that big they're targeting larger spends such as TVs, which inevitably they'll be able to sell some of their finest cables and close that lost margin.

 

edit: my snarkiness has been undone. Apparently BBY is having the best year in their history. wut

I didn't get the 20%, but I did get an email today for 10% with an expiration of 8/21.

While they certainly have a tendency to have a huge markup, they have one of the best price match policy. Even through phone.@Azza wrote:

I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.
