Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

be very careful with this card. I have had this card for almost 3yrs now and I am stuck at 300 credit limit. I called every backdoor number and spoke to every rep I could and they told me that the max I can EVER get is 300 on this card, I can not upgrade to another account..etc. This card has never been paid late, and I keep using it and then paying it off. I would say negotiate what amount they give you first if they try and give you 300 as a limit. But other than that I love this card. I have the card that attaches to my cell phone so when I go to places like McDonalds or Best Buy I can just tap my phone on the swipe pad and go..its great because I always seem to leave my wallet in the car but my phone is always with me.

Yes, it is a soft pull. If you decide to go ahead and apply, it's a hard pull.

I actually have two  BB RZMC   one is a Gold with an annual fee it has a CL of $900

The other is a Platinum with no annual fee with a CL of $6000.

I plan to close the Gold card in a few months when the annual fee is due.

I will agree that you can get a decent CL from HSBC with this card. I app'd in October 09 and got the platinum card with no AF and a CL of $4000.

Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

After reading this thread I went to the link for the preselection and apped.  I was preselected for the Platinum Card and apped today.  I got a phone call while my app was processing to verify my phone number- it was a robot just to make sure my home phone works.  I got a 10-14 day message.  I'll update this.  I have had a Rewards Program Card with Best Buy for about three years and they also asked me for this number on the app.

 

BTW I have never apped with HSBC.  I'm trying to get a high CL to lower my overall util.
