$25 off $250 Best Buy Amex Sync
 
Tweet #AmexBestBuy or look on offers/FB.

Looks like online and in stores.

Splitting payments across multiple GCs is probably the easiest thing to do. Anybody know if Shopkick still gives points?

Thanks for heads up! Synced all cards.

Apparently if offer existed on one of cards in Offers For You section of amex website, it will disappear if sync other cards via social media channels. So one better save offer from Offers For You first.

Not exactly sure what your saying but I just synced the offer via FB for one card and via twitter for another.

Since I don't like overpaying for electronic stuff, I don't go to BB very often.

Can you use 3 or more CC for split payment in one transaction to purchase multiple VGC?

If your store allows CCs to buy VGC, you can split payments.

Even though it was in "my offers" only for my Everyday card, it worked on my SPG cards too by tweeting

They did last year.

It's back again. I've done it twice before already, know the drill.

Bought 5 X $200 VGC and paid with 4 different Amex cards for an easy $100 bonus. (The BB elite bonus and my CC bonuses will wipe out the $5.95 purchase fee).

Already received Amex sync confirmation thanking me for using my cards. ^

The BBY I went to had $200 VGCs but the register only allowed one card per transaction. Not sure if it was that BBY or if it is corporate policy? The CSR tried a few times but the register didn't allow it and the manager came and said it was only one card per transaction. They were okay with me buying multiple cards but I was trying to buy it in one transaction and split payments across Amex cards.

Definitely not corp policy, and a nonsensical rule too. Try a different store. I believe corp policy limits you to 1k/day, or at least that's the limit at most stores, but that's enforced by the store personnel and not the registers, which will allow you to ring up more than 1k at a time, or at least did the last time they let me do it which was awhile ago. I've found many BB cashiers have no idea how to ring up VGC as employee turnover is high and not many people buy them. Unless this store has their own version of the register software, which seems unlikely,
