Are Best Buy Store Card CLI still soft?

A few months ago I mashed the love button and got an increase to $3200.  However, I haven't always had to wait a full 6 months.  I think the latest one I waited maybe 5?  Anyway, I thought I might press my luck and hit it again here a few months later and before clicking continue it asks for my annual income.  Is this because they've changed their CLI procedures?  Could it be a hard inquiry now?

 

Thanks

The HSBC store card.  Not the mastercard.

fwiw, mine were always soft. But you never know --things change.

 

My guess is that if you've treated them right, and it's time to request a CLI, go for it. If you've had problems with them, or if it's not time yet, hunker down and wait it out.

We're on very good terms with one another, I feel.  I went and and tried and got the denial response.  No biggie, the letter will just say you have not waited 6 months blah blah blah.

I also got the denial on line. Then called and got a instant approval over the phone for the cli.
