We wrote yesterday about the current Chase Pay offer going on at Best Buy where you can get 10% back on up to
$400 $300 of spend when paying with a Chase Freedom card.
Edit: This offer’s now available on other Chase cards.
Depending on your local Best Buy, it’s possible to stack this promotion with additional gift card deals.
Marshall commented on our original post that his local Best Buy had some gift card deals. Those offered a $10 Best Buy gift card when purchasing $100 of gift cards for BP, Shell, Southwest and others.
These gift card deals appear to be localized, so YMMV. Greg went into his local Best Buy today and saw the offer in the photo above offering a $5 Best Buy gift card when purchasing a $25 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card.
Stacking these gift card deals with the current Chase Pay promotion could make this deal profitable for gift card reselling.
For example, if your Best Buy has the same deal that Marshall mentioned, you could get
$400 $300 of BP gift cards and $40 $30 of Best Buy gift cards for $400 $300.
$354 $265.50 for $400 $300 worth of BP gift cards and $35.80 $26.85 for $40 $30 of Best Buy gift cards. This would therefore earn you $389.80 $292.35, although you may be able to earn more depending on your reselling relationships.
You’d also earn
$40 $30 on your Chase Freedom card when using Chase Pay, making you a profit of $29.80 $22.35. If you have a premium Ultimate Rewards-earning card, you could instead convert your 10% cashback into 4,000 3,000 UR points.
Gift card sales also earn My Best Buy points, so you’d also earn between
$4 $3 and $10 $7.50 in Best Buy rewards depending on your status in their program.

Are these targeted? I haven’t received an email. In fact, I NEVER receive emails from Chase! Although I did max out the 10x’s in December at Walmart and BestBuy, thanks to YOU! 🙂
I don’t believe they’re targeted as there’s a standard Best Buy landing page for Chase Freedom cardholders and there’s no registration required.

Just got an email from Chase: same offer 10x on $300 @ Best Buy with CSR.
Ditto – it seems they’re rolling out this promo slowly for some reason.
I earned 874 BB points on GC purchases (Shell, HULU, Netflix, Tracfone). I even earned Elite status this year with the extra points. All were bought using 25/250 Amex deals or the December 10% Chase pay deal.
Thanks – I’ve updated the post to show that 3rd party GC purchases do earn the reward points.
Email I got from from Chase said you get up to 10% cash back for BB when buying up to $300 in store using Chase Pay, NOT $400. See below from email:
Earn an extra 5% on up to $300 maximum in purchases when you check out in-store using Chase Pay.
Yep, unfortunately they’ve changed the terms as it was definitely $400 before. I’ve updated the post to show that it’s only $300 now.
Thanks for the hot tips. This looks like a pretty awesome way to cash in on the Freedom 10 UR bonus right now.
Marshall also said it ended yesterday.
Greg’s example of the BWW gift card deal was from today, so it looks like there might be some deals still out there, but YMMV.
