Thread Details

For anyone looking to use their Best Buy gift cards to purchase Amazon goods, I just found that you can buy kindle-labeled Amazon gift cards at B&M Best Buy stores. I rarely find any good deals at Best Buy but BB gift cards are still a common gift to receive so I assume some fellow SDers will be in the same boat this holiday.

Going through plasticjungle you'd normally pay $8 commission on $100 exchange, plus you have to send in your card and wait for the exchange by mail. Not a "hot deal" but didn't know where else to post this where shoppers could make use of the info.

Only catch is that the cards are only available in $50 increments, oh and I haven't actually tested the gift cards to make sure you can buy anything at Amazon.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Worked in San Jose, CA. There were a lot of gift cards available (over a dozen $50 ones, and about 5-7 $25 ones).

RZ cert for Amazon Kindle GC still works in CT. wasn't too hard to find after looking around the tablet accessories area. as you can see from my photo my location has a lot of $25 cards and a decent amount of $50 cards.

#2 is the big one. If it's only good for Kindle it's useless for most people.
Amazon kindle cards can be used to purchase anything on amazon.com, they only started making them because of kindle

I redeemed $70 of Best Buy rewards for iTunes gift cards. Not only did I get the gift cards, but there was some type of promotion and got an extra $5 of iTunes for free.....

It baffles me how people rack up so many RZ points. BB or "worst buy" as I like to call it, has such terrible prices I can't fathom earning $600 in rewards. But hey, maybe that's just me.

only hit them up for the absolute best deals. plus you make rewards quick if you got premier silver and the gamer unlocked club. i've been doing most of my gaming pre-orders with BB and getting the $20 RZ cert bonus, then flipping it to amazon gift cards soon after.

This year I spent 5k with BB.... Every item I bought with 3 exceptions was for resale. Set Bestbuy as deal alert and you'll be amazed how many deals they have. I still call tem worst buy and I hate stepping in BB stores but if there's a $ to be made i have no problems shopping with them.

OfficeMax had a deal last year buy $50 kindle gc for $45. So I bought a handful. Unless they added restrictions since then you should be able to buy anything you want at amazon with a kindle gc.

there are other ways to get bb gift cards that do not involve rz points. some of us went nuts with the recent gift card sales/promos

heck yes. i cashed in $100 in RZ certs the other month, applied them to my Amazon account and used them on my new laptop woot

note the cards say "Amazon gift cards are good for Kindle books, accessories, and millions of other items on Amazon.com.

How rare are these in stores now? I noticed none of my stores carry the Kindle anymore, and they aren't available for ship to store. If a store doesn't carry the Kindle is there still a good chance they'll carry the gift cards?
