              Give Mom What She Really Wants For Mother’s Day!
 A Best Buy Gift Card means incredible choice and the convenience of online shopping

Burnaby, B.C. - Flowers are appreciated, but so overdone. Moms do so much for their families all year
long and deserve the best gifts for Mother’s Day. Technology and entertainment products will make her
life easier and more entertaining – a fantastic gift Mom is sure to appreciate. But if it’s too hard to choose
between the thousands of technology and entertainment products available, a Best Buy gift card is your
answer. With a gift card, the shopping enthusiast in her will get the pleasure of spending the gift card
conveniently online at or in a local store!

“Gift cards aren’t seen as the last minute ‘didn’t know what to get you’ gift anymore, they’re a way of
showing Mom that you care enough to let her pick what she really wants for Mother’s Day herself!”, said
Susan Matthews, Best Buy’s Director of Marketing. “Plus, Best Buy’s website now offers gift card
redemption online so a busy ‘super Mom’ can pick out the item she’s been eyeing for months but hasn’t
had the time to pick up, and have it delivered right to her.”

Moms are in the know and want the latest and greatest in consumer electronics, computer and
entertainment, just like the rest of the family. Here are some great suggestions for how Mom can spend
her gift card:
