Through tomorrow (11/27/17), Bed, Bath, & Beyond is offering a $25 gift card rebate when you buy a $200 in Visa Gift Card. This rebate can be filed twice per household/address. Furthermore, it could be stacked with current Amex Offers for either $5 / 500 Membership Rewards points back on $25 or more to mostly mitigate the activation fee ($6.95). You may also be able to stack with in-store cash back from Ebates or miles from Alaska/United on in-store purchases (though terms exclude gift card purchases, so YMMV), which could make this one nicely profitable if a store near you still has stock.

I’ve done these Bed, Bath, and Beyond rebates the past couple of years. I keep copies of everything just in case, but haven’t had a problem with them yet. Last year, the rebate was for a $25 Visa gift card, this year it’s only a Bed, Bath, & Beyond gift card. That’s still not terrible as public resale rates on those gift cards are north of 80%, meaning you could likely sell it for more than $20.
If you’re also stacking with the Amex Offer, you’re looking at getting $25+ back on a $200 Visa Gift Card, an easy money-maker.
That’s an extra 300+ miles for every $200 Visa Gift Card. Alternatively, Ebates is offering 4% cash back on in-store purchases at Bed Bath & Beyond. However, the terms on both Ebates and the mileage portals exclude earning on gift cards. I don’t yet know whether or not that is enforced, so I think it’s worth a try.
At the end of the day, this is an easy money-maker. The rebate will probably take several weeks, but I’ve had success with them in the past. I’ll be passing by a store this afternoon and plan to take part with credit cards linked separately to Ebates and Alaska Mileage Plan to test and see whether either work for future reference.
