UPDATE: This has now changed to “up to 6%” back, it depends on the item purchased.
Purchases at Best Buy can sometimes be quite expensive, like an iPad, computer, speaker system, television, etc. so getting 6% back can be a huge savings. The online shopping portal topcashback.com (which I’ve written about before – you can learn more about this site by reading this previous blog post) is will credit your account 6% when you go to BestBuy.com through their shopping portal.
Now, I know many people are skeptical about online shopping portals and that the points/cash back never comes through like it is supposed to, but I personally just used this shopping portal for a large Best Buy purchase and everything worked smoothly (and extremely quickly).
The terms on TopCashBack.com does state that this 6% is ending soon, so I am not sure how long it will actually last. Most other shopping portals are giving between 1-2% cash back or points per dollar spent. So 6% back is pretty big! I’d also prefer cash back on such a large purchase to bring down the entire cost. So on the $1,099.99 purchase that was just made (pre-tax) my TopCashBack.com account was credited with $66.00.
Remember, this is only for online purchases, BUT you can purchase online and do in-store pickup. No shipping fees and you can go get the item that day – usually it is ready in about 30 minutes. If the item is not currently available in-store than they will give you a timeframe for pick up, typically somewhere between 1-5 days.
Enjoy your 6% cash back!
