Re: Best Buy CLI!

How are you guys getting CLI's? I've had my card for 3 years and have tried everything and am still stuck with an 800 limit. Everytime I call, they say noone is getting CLI's right now but every now and then I read about people getting them on here. Just curious.

Is your card the BB mastercard?

Re: Best Buy CLI!

I read something before where if you got approved for a low amount and you never get an increase you never will if it's the lowest tier best buy store card so you might have to reapply for a new one or talk to a csr about that. Im not saying it's true I just saw a previous post about that.

Re: Best Buy CLI!

It is true and they will cite that as a reason for denial on the letter they send you (Tier B card). But I read a post here sometime ago that it is possible to upgrade if you call CSR and nag them

I experienced the same thing the first year i had my card. I'm assuming i was on the Tier B plan cause every time i would request a CLI the denial letter would state I'm at the max CL for my type of account. I called the credit department an complained about this like 2 or 3 times i was told to close the account an re apply to see if i could get a higher CL. That i didn't do. One night a year an a half ago i gave the button one last try an they gave me a $200 CLI to $800. I was shocked not sure if it had anything to do with me calling the credit department  a few times venting about how the card will never grow with me but i been getting CLI every 6 months since then. My credit has improved allot also since when I first applied so maybe that had something to do with it. I was going to close the account glade i didn't.

Re: Best Buy CLI!

Yes I have the mastercard. When I called, they told me the tiers are only for store cards and B cards cannot get CLI's, however, since I have the mastercard, it doesn't affect me, just noone is getting CLI's at the moment. I have the gold card, and they suggested trying to reapply for the platinum so I might get a higher limit. I applied and was approved for the platinum with a higher interest rate and lower CL, so I cancelled the card. Luckily since I did it so quick, it hasn't affected or even shown up on my report that I did it.

Re: Best Buy CLI!

Does the MC offer 0% interest on certain purchases like the store card?
