I have always requested and always denied in the pas t 3 years. I called this morning and the agent didnt know if it was going to be a soft or a hard. She said it's automated.

 

I chickened out.

Re: Best Buy CLI Question

i think it's a hardpull, because i was declined and they gave me a reason and my creditscore.

in my wallet:
Amex Zync : NPSL (main card always pif)
Discover More: 6,500$ (no balance)
Chase Sapphire : 5000.00$ (no balance)
Citi Thank You Card backed by Amex 8,200$ (no balance)
Amex Blue Cash 21,000$
Best Buy Store Card : 5,700$ (I'm a nerd so used a lot)

Re: Best Buy CLI Question

Best Buy Store is a soft... the score you are getting is the soft that they are getting every months or two.... When you do CLI with Amex, the score they send you after approved or denied can be up to 2 months ago, it shows the date. or maybe that was GE on my Dillards Amex... forget right now.

 

Now recently the stupid Best Buy MC was doing Hard Pulls and that was the first I had EVER seen that and it made me VERY MAD.  She wasn't nice and was putting me down saying I didn't qualify for more then $300 limit, but I had $600... I told her the only reason the card was still opened was because of the transfer to Capital One next year!

Sorry to hear about your experience, I'm hoping Cap1  treats their new HSBC customers with some luv!

I have two cap ones for 4 years now in great standing; always denied for CLI.

 

I also have a BBRZMC and its stuck at $300 no CLI ever.

 

So I always say if cap one takes over HSBC, i'm screwed.

I apologize....I had confused this with Lowe's. I do not have the Best Buy card.

Re: Best Buy CLI Question

The store card is a soft pull.  And it limits requests to every 6 months.
