This is a great promotion if you have any purchases to make at the selected retailers. Best Buy sells a variety of merchant gift cards in-store (though I haven’t seen Visa Gift Cards at my closest store in a couple of years), so you could use these deal to get a good return on spend even if you don’t intend to buy something at one of the included retailers.
Note that this promotion is public and open to holders of the various Sapphire cards and the Freedom Unlimited. The Freedom card appears to have
curiously not so curiously been left out on this one (since Chase Pay was just announced as a Q4 bonus category). In the past, this offer has worked once per card for those with multiple cards, so I would expect it to work the same here, which could stack up to be a really nice deal for those with multiple cards that qualify.
My experiences last holiday season indicated that cashiers at the time were pretty unfamiliar with Chase Pay. I would expect that they have become more familiar, but you might want to check out How to use Chase Pay in-store before heading to Best Buy just to be prepared in case you get a blank stare or a cashier insisting you tap your phone.
