My Best Buy card is my oldest open account. I have had it for 11 years. When I opened it they gave me a SL of $500. Every few years I have asked for a CLI and they have always instant rejected me. When I asked for a reconsideration I was always told "this card doesn't get CLIs, it only goes up to $500". Once again in my credit spree this year I asked for a CLI on this card and I was rejected. I was approved for an American Express card, though and asked to have the balance of my Best Buy card transferred over. The day the American Expresss transfer hit my account I got an unsolicited $250 CLI. I now have a 0 balance Best Buy card ith a $750 SL and I am considering leaving it at $0 if they want to play this way.
Congrats on the increase...how absurd they say it doesn't go above $500. Mine is sitting at $15,000 so you still have potential on yours for sure! Mine is from 2010.
Yeah, this is not the Best Buy Visa. It is the Best Buy store card that keeps getting passed around to different banks. Citi has it currently.
That might be the reason. You could probably reapp this card and get the visa with a better sl but seeing as you just got Amex, looks like you are on to bigger and better things , not knocking the BB, I have one lol
