Which evrewards program to use when shopping with Best Buy?

I'm about to make a few large purchases at Best Buy and wanted to use a shopping portal to get some extra points but I'm not sure which one to use.
Best Buy Coupon Codes + Best Buy Cash Back Rebates, Rewards and Discounts | evreward.com

Credit Cards I have:
Amex Platinum - 70k MR points
Delta Reserve - 70k skymiles

I live in NYC, I have Gold status on Delta so that seemed to make the most sense but Delta Skymiles isn't an option for BestBuy. I also don't have any meaningful amount of points saved up in other programs. What would you do in my situation?

How do you define "a few large purchases"? At 1 cent/point/mile or less per $, these purchases are unlikely to result in a life-changing experience.

I use Citi 2% for everything, and even double isn't life-changing.

We like to check Cashback Monitor and Cashback Holic (they're both aggregators) before making larges purchases to see which portal is offering the largest cashback/bonus at the moment of our intended purchase.

I use BeFrugal (BeFrugal.com Cash Back Portal CONGA--Get $10 for signing up!) myself, and of course there's Best Buy's own rewards program on top of that. If you don't care for warranty and protection you can also buy BB GCs at a discount and go that route
