Best Buy, Citi team up on rewards app

Electronics retailer Best Buy Co. and financial services company Citi are teaming up on a new app that lets Citi's "ThankYou" reward-program customers redeem points by scanning UPC codes at Best Buy stores in Connecticut and nationwide.

The application, available free for iPhones, iPod Touch and Android devices, lets Citi card holders scan or type in barcodes of products at Best Buy and redeem reward-program points immediately. It also lets users browse for items in the rewards program that are available for in-store pickup, search for specific items such as a flat-screen TV and find Best Buy stores nearby.

Best Buy and Citi say this is the first rewards program to offer a mobile redemption app.
