Creating a smart folder in Finder

I think a Smart Folder can help me.  I have hundred of image file in my Receipts folder, and most contain the expense name, which includes the vendor.  I want all the receipt containing BestBuy in the file name appear in one folder.  But the name BestBuy may occur at a different location on various files. So a normal Sort by Filename would not work.

I use Mountain Lion.  

Would a Smart Folder work for me?

How do I configure it, if it can help me.

In finder pull down the File menu to New Smart Folder.

Then in the window that opens, click the + sign at the upper right. This will add a new search criteria. Set the criteria to "name" "includes" "BestBuy"

See attached screen shot.
