Best Buy Gift Card Retailers _HOT_



Scammers favor gift cards because they are easy for people to find and buy, and they have fewer protections for buyers compared to some other payment options. Scammers can get quick cash, the transaction is largely irreversible, and they can remain anonymous.

Scammers also tell people where to buy the gift cards. In the first nine months of 2021, people who reported losing money buying gift cards mentioned Target stores more than other retailers. Reports suggest that Walmart, Best Buy, CVS, and Walgreens stores are also popular with scammers.


3 From January 2021 through September 2021, 39,263 reports indicating $147.8 million in gift card and reload card payments were submitted, compared to 36,682 reports indicating $115.1 million in reported gift card payments in all of 2020. Earlier year figures for comparison purposes are as follows: 35,323 reports with $100 million reported lost (2019), 32,084 reports with $70.6 million reported lost (2018).


5 From January 2021 through September 2021, 12,239 people reported losing $35.5 million to business impersonators using gift cards, and 7,844 people reported losing $39.6 million to government impersonators using gift cards. Excluding reports that did not indicate a contact method, a phone call was the method of contact in 37% of reports indicating gift cards as the method of payment, followed by email (18%) and social media (16%).


7 The median individual reported losses from January 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021 by gift card brand are as follows: Target ($2,500), Walmart ($1,380), Apple ($800), eBay ($600), and Google Play ($500). Median individual losses are based on the total loss reported by the consumer, which often includes more than one gift card purchase.


8 The percentage of reports from January 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021 indicating a loss of $5,000 or more by gift card brand are as follows: Target (30%), Apple (13%), Walmart (12%), Google Play (6%), and eBay (3%). Of the $148 million reported lost to gift card scams during this period, $111 million were losses reported by people who reported a loss of $5,000 or more.


Although progress has been made on this issue, gift card scams remain a threat to consumers across the country. The Office of Attorney General will continue to collaborate with other state Attorneys General and retailers on this initiative to reduce scams and fraud. Accordingly, the public should be aware of the following:


Since 2017, the Bureau of Consumer Protection has received complaints from at least 54 consumers about gift card scams, with these victims losing about $411,000. Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Sarah Frasch, Assistant Director for Financial Consumer Protect Nicholas Smyth, and Deputy Attorney General Jill Ambrose led the work on this initiative.

Best Buy gift cards are available on its website, which you can order physically or send digitally. Cards are available for products or tech support. The retailer also offers a special program for businesses that want to set up rewards in the form of gift cards for employees.


When you sign up and are approved for a Best Buy credit card, you can start earning rewards on day one. You can earn up to 10% back in rewards on purchases made on the first day and then 5% on every $100 spent at Best Buy. Purchases made at other retailers that accept Visa can earn between 1% and 3% back in rewards.


Cardholders can use rewards points towards future purchases at Best Buy or special offers from other retailers and travel partners. If you are looking to get a new TV, Apple Watch, or laptop, this can be a great way to save money. The card has no annual fee, and you can use it to finance large purchases for up to 24 months with no interest.


Origins: In October 2012, a scam purporting to offer free $1,000 Best Buy gift cards to those who accessed a proffered link then entered a "winning code" spread by cell phone text message. It was a reprise of a March 2012 scam that invoked the name of the same retailer to lure the unwary.
