Approved for Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard!

[ Edited ]

Just thought I'd share! I've applied twice before, but I was denied both times. It's crazy how much easier it is to get cards now that I have a longer and better credit history!

 

BTW, any way to find out my credit limit? I applied online and was approved instantly.

Most recent score: 717

Unfortunetly it's most likely another low limit card, especially the MasterCard version. You have an Amex now, why go back to subprime?

If I had to guess try https://www.hsbcapply.com/status/rewardzonemastercard MasterCard is usually very low limits to start and hard to get CLI. Believe your score was great for reg store card but maybe your AAoA held you back.

Congrats on the card. RZMC also comes in prime flavor, a Platinum version with $5k+ line, 17.99% APR and the ability to earn Premier Silver status via non-BB purchases. Also includes all the 0% financing offers that the store card has.

I was wanting to take advantage of the 18 months same as cash plan... Hopefully I'll get a decent enough limit to do that. :/

You can always call them for the CL.
This was definitely one of my favorite cards when I had it.  It's a great way to get to Premier Silver when general spending counts towards the $2,500.
