Automate Your Best Buy In-Store and Online Receipts

Overview

We know how annoying receipts and invoices can be even when they are online. But there’s no need to hunt for them anymore. Best Buy makes it possible to automate your in-store and online receipts with Greenback. Greenback fetches them for you automatically and syncs them to your accounting platform. Now there are so many advantages to being a My Best Buy member beyond rewards.

Your My Best Buy membership is the key to setting in motion the flow of your receipt data. When you are connected, your data can be synced. You’ll see your Purchase History along with your receipts in your Greenback transaction feed.

Let’s Start Automating!

First you’ll need to create a free My Best Buy membership.

For a consumer account, go to Bestbuy.com, click on “Account”, under “Welcome!” and click on Create one. If you have one, enter your My Best Buy member ID. You may already have a member ID if you have a My Best Buy credit card or joined in-store. Enter your Enrollment Code to verify your phone number.

Pro-Tip If you have two accounts, Best Buy allows you to combine them. But you don’t have to because with Greenback, you can connect as many as you like.

Next, (login to your My Best Buy account to test your credentials first if needed).

  1. Sign up for a Free or Premium Greenback account at Greenback.com

  2. Connect your My Best Buy account(s).

  3. Connect your accounting platforms. (Optional)

That's it!

As soon as you connect your account, Greenback starts fetching your receipt data. You'll see your transactions immediately. There's no waiting for days or any setup. Greenback can sync all of your consumer accounts to an unlimited number of accounts in QuickBooks, Xero, or Zoho which is great if you have more than one. By leveraging our amazing transaction data, Greenback supplies you key information, in the right context to help you export with confidence every time and reconcile every cent spent. All of your transaction details are indexed, and easily searchable on our platform and the data (along with the receipt) syncs to your accounting package. For high-volume users, there’s a Bulk Export feature that can save you a lot of time or when you need to catch up on record keeping.

No matter how you have your QuickBooks, Xero, or Zoho accounts configured, Greenback’s advanced technology is flexible. During syncs, Greenback automatically matches transactions or creates new ones, auto-fills fields, and automatically attaches the receipt (when available) in your accounting platform for you. Greenback intelligently adapts to your current preferences, custom chart of accounts, and dropdowns. No training wheels are required. You don’t have to worry about duplicate transactions or errors either. Every Best Buy transaction goes thru our thoughtfully engineered validation process to ensure you have 100% accurate financial data in your accounting system.
