Hey guys...just received my card the other day. To my suprise I received the BB MC. I thought it would be the store card. I'm not for sure about the luv buton. Thought I might should wait for a CLI. My initial limit is $300.
Thanks for the info....

Just got some REAL LUV from BB Store card.
After reading this thread I decided to give the online luv button a try.
"Your current credit limit is $4,200, would you like to apply for a Credit Line Increase"? It asked.
Why YES, as a matter of fact I would (I thought, as I gingerly pressed the "Yes" button).
The screen changed INSTANTLY and said "
You have been approved for a Credit Line Increase from $4,200 to $8,400. Would you like to accept this increase"?
After some careful thought, I decided to accept their offer (about .001 second), and pressed the "Yes" button.
"Congratulations" it said. "Your new credit limit is now $8,400. You may begin shopping with your new credit limit immedietely at Best Buy".
WooooooHooooooo . . . . I've never seen a 100% CLI anywhere . . . .

Just got som luv from Best Buy!
Have a store card and have had a $2k limit since I opened the card in December 07. Bought about 1500 worth of audio equip at 0% financing for 24 months...been slowly paying it off, so util has been high (was denied luv before when util was at 75% or so...before I knew better)...recently brough util around 47% (yes, the remainder will be easily paid off before the 0% offer ends)...decided to hit the luv button...and CLI to $2,600.
Anything helps with overall util...I'll take it.

When they say every six months you are eligible for an credit line increase, they mean it. Not a minute early. :-)
My last increase was on 03/28/09 and when I hit the luv button last week and they denied my request. I called customer service to find out what happened and they said increases are allowed every six months.

Love the forum! Very useful!
I received the BB MC in May 09, the increased me $300 in August, (total of $800)
But again, this is the BB MC, not the BB store card.
