I have been looking to get a tv with the special financing this holiday. I was looking at BestBuy(HSBC), Sears(Citibank), Amazon(GEMB I think), and Walmart(GE too ??). I had BestBuy in my BK in 2005 but have gotton an HSBC Mastercard this year. I'd prefer to get the BB but which store card do you think I have the best chance with?

The HSBC card I got was not a BestBuy MC it was a regular HSBC MC (7K line). I haven't tried for a BB yet but I'm hesitant if BB will carry a grudge that HSBC didn't. I was thinking that a GEMB based card might be a easier try. Also Fry's Electronics uses First Electronic Bank(never heard of them, anyone else?). As for Circuit City they are closing down in AZ.
Are you saying ALL Circuit City stores inn AZ are closing or your local store?

I've had my HSBC MC since March 08. Only have about a $400 balance on the 7K line.
All Phoenix and surrounding area stores in AZ are closing down. Only the few in Tucson, AZ area are staying open. Part of Circuit City's cost reduction and BK filing.
