Best Buy MasterCard

What’s the deal where I may be able to use a Best Buy MasterCard?

Right now, you can get a $20 savings code to use online at simply for signing up for Visa Checkout promotional emails – whether you’re a new user or an existing one. There’s no minimum spend and Best Buy has free shipping on orders until early next year, so this is basically $20 for free and not much work! You need to redeem the code by December 24th, 2015.

You should be able to use a Best Buy MasterCard (or any MasterCard even) to get this deal, despite it not being a Visa card. The name ‘Visa Checkout’ is a bit of a misnomer – the FAQ states that you can add a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover card to your Visa Checkout account to use across all your devices. We wrote a mini guide to Visa Checkout here.

The bad news is, the site is being problematic and causing readers to tear out their hair when trying to get this code, so we’re writing this to try and help you through the process.
