Update 11/26/20: All of these gift card deals are now live. Don’t forget about a potential stacking opportunity with the current Amex Offer for Best Buy. Also note that I wouldn’t ordinarily expect portal cash back to stack here, but it’s possible that it will. Along those lines, I’m not sure which products are eligible for 8% back from Retailmenot as they just say “top deals”. Since this sounds like a top deal to me, it might be worth clicking through (note a max of $30 back from Retailmenot).
Update 11/22/20: The DoorDash and Xbox Game Pass deals are now live, but the Apple gift card offer and 15% discount on other brands is due to come at some point later this week.
Best Buy will be offering a number of noteworthy gift card deals for Black Friday that you could snag online to save a few bucks. The headliner deals are on Apple and DoorDash with a limited number of other more niche discount options.
- Best Buy will be offering the following discounted gift card deals for Black Friday:
- Buy a $100 Apple gift card, get a free $20 Best Buy gift card
- Get 20% off on DoorDash gift cards
- Get 15% off on other select brands (including H&M, NFL Shop, CBS All-Access, Domino’s, WWE, Fanatics, NBA Store, MLB Shop, NHL Shop, and Fandango)
- Direct deal to this promotion (our affiliate link)
- Not live yet (I expect these will go live ahead of Black Friday though)
- Limits will likely be in place
The marquee deals here are the Apple gift card deal and the DoorDash deal.
The Apple card deal is obviously good because Apple gift cards can be used to buy Apple hardware or iTunes-type purchases. Getting any discount on Apple is a good deal, so if you value the Best Buy gift card at all that’s a good deal.
The DoorDash gift card is also nice given that it gives you the ability to earn a nice discount on delivery or pickup. Keep in mind that those with DashPass via the Chase Sapphire Reserve or another Chase card can not keep DashPass benefits while paying with a different credit card, but you can pay with a gift card and still get DashPass benefits. When you join the Fluz app, you can pick up vouchers for 20% back on DoorDash gift cards, but only up to a max of $3.50 back per voucher (though you can stack multiple gift cards if you have multiple vouchers). I can’t recall an easy opportunity to save more than 20%. Keep in mind also that discounted gift cards stack with promo codes.
The cards available for 15% off don’t excite me much — things like NFL Shop, H&M, and CBS All-Access will appeal to those who would ordinarily shop at those places, but merchants like Domino’s are pretty frequently available at similar (or even sometimes better) discounts. YMMV as to whether or not those deals are exciting.
