Best Buy Financing Changes

I could be wrong, but it looks like the Best Buy store card has changed it's 0% interest financing.  It used to be 18 mos no interest on purchases of $299 or more. Now, they are requiring $429 or more or they will only offer 0% for 6 mos and 11.9% for 48 mos.  Looks like this card will be getting a lot less use now.  :smileymad:

When you're allergic to balances, there's no drug in the world that can make you tolerate them!
