Best Buy opened its doors in 1966 as an electronics store called Sound of Music. The company changed its name to Best Buy in 1983 as it added home appliances and VCRs to its product line. Known for its warehouse-style stores and commission-free staff, Best Buy now has more than 1,200 stores in the U.S. To make paying for your purchases more convenient, Best Buy offers two credit card options.
