Employee Stock Purchase Plan

What happens to my Employee Stock Purchase Plan stock and contributions?

After you leave Best Buy, you will continue to own any Best Buy stock that you previously purchased and owned through the ESPP. If your separation date occurs during an offering period, you will receive a refund of any payroll deduction contributions made during that offering period within one to two pay periods.

  • There are two annual ESPP offering periods which govern the price at which any stock shares would be purchases: The first Friday in April and the first Friday in October.
  • The 12-month holding period on ESPP purchases is no longer a requirement after your separation date.

How do I access my ESPP account?

Go to the Best Buy Rewards Site. If you are a first-time user since leaving Best Buy, enter your Social Security Number as your Employee ID and click Register as a New User.

You may also contact the Benefits Center at 1-866-475-6733.
