Best Buy’s APIs have accepted both plain-text (HTTP) and SSL (HTTPS) API requests for a long time. This year, in the interest of improving everyone’s security & privacy, we’re dropping plain-text support. Here’s the gist of what we’re doing:

  • api.remix.bestbuy.com and api.bbyremix.bestbuy.com are going away in favor of api.bestbuy.com

Although we’ll be sending this message again in April, June and July, we encourage everyone to immediately update their API integrations to use https://api.bestbuy.com/. We’ll be dropping previously used hostnames (such as api.remix.bestbuy.com) as well as plain-text HTTP support to simplify, streamline and secure our integrations with your systems.
