is it possible to use Bestbuy Gift Cards @ Futureshop?

Just out of curiosity as it's the same main company.

Wondering if you could do it vice versa.

Actually I would be interested to know as well as I inevitably end up with a random assortment of cards after Christmas.

This question has been posted several times. Search the forums. Futureshop is owned by Bestbuy, but both companies are distinct and do not accept eachothers gift cards.

The answer to the question is Store Policy: No, in Practice: Yes, the cards will work fine, but the difficulty is finding a representative that's willing to process it for you, as store policy is BB cards are for BB, FS cards are for FS.

Have you personally actually used a BB GC @ FS or is it just hearsay ?

I think if you enter the BB GC on the FS GC check your balance site ( below ) you can get your BB GC balance

or vice versa ..you can check FS GC balance on BB GC balance site .

You can only get away with that on OnLINE purchases
