Gift cards are the gift of choice, perfect for many people on your list. Beginning on “Giving Tuesday” (November 28) Best Buy e-gift cards will have amazing holiday sweater designs, featuring the artwork of BGC Club members. But more importantly, for each holiday themed gift card sold, Best Buy will contribute $1 to BGC clubs across the country. Learn more about Giving Tuesday and Best Buy’s ongoing partnership with BGC Canada (formerly Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada).

Giving Tuesday encourages us to do good

Improving the world is possible when we all work together. That’s the basic premise of GivingTuesday, “a movement that encourages people to do good.” For the last two years beginning on Giving Tuesday, Best Buy has launched a limited-edition holiday-themed paper bag with our long-time partner, BGC Canada (formerly Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada). Each bag featured artwork by BGC Club members, and 25 cents from the purchase of each bag were donated to BGC Canada. That holiday campaign raised over almost $120,000 to buy tech for Clubs across the country!

This year Best Buy is partnering with BGC for the holidays in a new way. We know many of our customers will be purchasing gift cards online at By donating $1 for each holiday-themed e-gift card sold (up to $75,000), we know we can help purchase a lot of technology for BGC Clubs across the country. And by creating a special BGC Canada e-gift card, we’re featuring the artwork of Club members in a fun and creative way.

This donation campaign will run from November 28 to December 31, 2023, and special edition BGC e-gift cards will available online at the same time. Best Buy gift cards can be applied to the huge range of products found online at and in any of our stores.
