Can gift cards be used during on-line purchases?

I have $800 worth of Best Buy gift cards that I would liike to apply to a new flat panel television. I have visited our local store and found a better selection on-line. If I order a television on-line for pick-up at the local store, can the gift cards be applied?

Vizio 70 inch screen replacement

Since the screen is 90% of the value, it's very likely not worth replacing. You could probably just as well buy a new TV.
If you really want the screen, contact Sony customer service or parts department.

    Got a 50 inch lcd tv and we broke the screen

    The screen itself is the most expensive part of the TV. Usually, a LCD screen of that size cost well over $3,000 for a single purchase from the supplier. The labor and the part will exceed the worth of the TV. It's best to buy a new TV at this point.

    Online purchase

    Personaly, I like to go in to a store and buy a TV set in person, or send someone who I can trust. If they have the set in stock, I like to unpack it in the store and inspect and try it on the spot. If I like it, I have them re-pack it up, and I transport it myself, or have them do it.

    When it arrives, I unpack it in front of the transport people just to be sure it is good.

    I have seen too many defective sets from out of the box. These were mostly from being dropped or smashed during transport, or they were defective in the first place!

    Gift certificates

    Hey cwms,

    If you are looking to make a purchase on the you can always used Best Buy™ gift cards or Visa/Mastercard/American Express gift cards to place your order. The website is currently able to accept multiple forms of payment, and should provide you with an option to pay by gift card at the time of check out.

    Please remember though that gift cards that are issued by financial institutions like Visa or American Express may need to be entered under the option for traditional credit or debit card payment, as the "gift card" option is generally only for the actual Best Buy™ gift cards sold through our stores.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Unfortunately in most cases the cost to repair the tv is not worth it. The replacement panel plus the labor in most cases cost's more than what the tv cost you to buy. You can call Sony if you are intrested in the cost of the panel. 1-800-222-7669

    Good Luck
