Best Buy Store Card EFFIN!!! approved

I recently applied for the Barclays Apple Card because i wanted the new Imac. So i applied and got denied due to to many app inquiries. So i went to best buy today.... on my birthday and said What the hell.... let me try it out.... 4/17/13 cuz i think its midnight already in some places.

 

I heard so many stories of Type A, B accounts of some sort some will get approved for 300 some for 500 and will never get CLI. So i was hesitant, but i felt lucky... since ive been wanting that computer i had the guts to apply today on my Bday. After having the girl working at the computer startion convince me to appl so i did. I prayed and prayed and said let this be my bday gift.... after a minute  INstantly Approved for 2k holy moly.... and i thought i was gonna get denied... because of the Barcley Card. I also thought that if i got approved, It would be for 250-500 not 2k... im stoked and super happy. I have recently been succesful because of all the wonderful ideas and stories i get off here.

 

Thanks guys!! hopefully i can stay in the garden... my next goal is auto loan.

 

Btw my credit scores are all across the board TU 675 , Ex 675 and EQ 672

Congrats!!! and nice Bday gift!! For some time i was hot for the BB store card. Tried twice in the past and got denied both times (last time i applied was Oct 2012 and got denied for inquiries). The desire for the card has decreased lately but maybe one day i will be able to get approved.

Great news and happy birthday!   

 

Capital One has been more generous on the BB MC lately.  I have received two CLI's.  Started with $300, then to $600 and now at $900.  I guess it's because they are selling the accounts to Citibank this summer?  

 

Anyway, congratulations!
