If you have ever wished, you could use your Citi ThankYou Rewards to snap up a HD TV or some other kind of electronics at Best Buy then you’re in luck because they have just signed the electronics retailer on as a rewards partner.

People can use their rewards points to buy merchandise when shopping online via the retailer’s website or app. They will be given the option at checkout to either pay for the purchase in full with their points or use a portion of them to complete the sale whether buying new headphones or a new computer.

This partnership is seen as a way to give cardholders more options when using their rewards, especially since electronics is a very popular buy for consumers. “At Citi, we are committed to evolving our ThankYou Rewards program to provide members new ways to use their points how they want and when they want,” said Mary Hines, managing director, Benefits, New Product Development and Global Rewards. “Our partnership with Best Buy is another important milestone for on-demand points redemption that offers members the flexibility to choose to cover all or part of any purchase made on”

Let’s get the party started

To get started using rewards via or their app, people simply go shopping using those options, although they can also start shopping at

When they find something that they want to buy they proceed to check out as usual, using their Citi ThankYou credit card to make the payment by either keying it into the system or having their mobile wallet do it for them. The system will then display how many points they have available to make the purchase, giving users the option to use as many or as few points as they like to check out.

At that point the credit card will be charged and the points they opt to use will be credited to their account for the cash value as a statement credit. It will show up on their statement within 24 to 48 hours.

People using their Citi ThankYou card will also get the usual perks that come with the card including: extended warranty, damage and theft purchase protection, and Citi Price Rewind. As a side benefit. all shoppers whether they are using the Citi ThankYou card or not can opt to pick up their purchases at a nearby Best Buy location so they can skip the checkout line.
