pay with different card ..don't return

I know this is a long shot but has anybody been able to repurchase an item on a different credit card without returning the product and only using the receipt at best buy ?

it's a tv I bought and the cash back card came too late ..was wondering if I'm able to refund the item ...then repurchase without actually bring back the product

It is possible but YMMV.

You will need the original card holder to process the return with the original credit card. Since the return would go back to that credit card. You also need to find a rep willing to do this, which might not be exactly easy because most stores will have seasonal reps right now who might not know how to do this. You should explain the entire story to them in advance and see if anyone is willing to do it for you. Don’t be surprised if you are denied since this isn’t a regular thing but I did do it years ago while also doing a price protection (tv was on sale during VIP day).

Why not buy the TV with the new credit card and return it right away with the old receipt/card?
I don't think they check any serial numbers !

If the TV has changed price since you bought it, you will be out of luck.

WTF? They scan serial numbers. They scan the bar code on the box.

I don't understand why you need to repurchase it. If you want to use a cashback card, can't you just buy something else with it? Or reload some amazon gift card balance?

The serial number is often also a barcode on the box.

I think you'd be able to do this with the box (so they have something to scan). I think it's understandable that it's difficult to haul a TV back into the store to change the payment method.

However, if the original deal included a cash back card, you'd have to return that too (unless the deal is still active).

Just use that cash back card for other purchases (groceries, restaurants, gas...)

this is the best way I can earn the 10 percent which otherwise I would only get 1.75 percent

I already have cards that earn a high percentage on groceries etc

maybe because I don't plan to spend $1600 on amazon or another retailer ?
