Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

Yes I was approved 3/3/2010 for $500 cl and the platinum with no a/f. I used the preapporval link in this thread and it worked. I have no other cc besides the home depot that I was apprroved for in Feb. They did a soft pull for the pre-approval and the hard they pulled eq. which drop my score 7 pts. oh well I need the credit.. this will be my last app for at least six months. during the last two months I was accepted for the hd with $1000 limit and this.. I was denied at citi forward, local cu. four apps I'm 2 out of 4. I want to mention I had a hsbc co dola 2005, so it is possible to get back with them..:smileywink:

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.  


Don't be surprised if they issue you a new BB RZ number.  I have had my Gold BB RZ MC for awhile now and have used it quite a bit. So much in fact that I am now a silver premier member. When I applied for the new card (Platinum) they did ask if I had a RZ account # so I entered it. Unfortunately, they ignored this fact and issued me a completely new RZ # and because one is at the silver premier level and the other at the basic level they can not be combined.

Just something to keep in mind

Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

Thanks for this info.  I checked the HSBC credit card app site- there's a link that allows you to check the status of your application.  I was approved with an initial starting CL of $1000.  I'm not sure if this is a good starting CL with them or not but I know as far as my personal finances go it's sufficient because I usually don't spend more than that at BB.  The largest purchase with them was for a High-def television and PS3 bundle that cost me close to $3000 which I paid for in cash in 2007 that earned me a hell of alot of reward points.  I will have to wait in the mail for it to see the terms but I will post it if it would help anyone. 

 

My highest CL now is my Citi Platinum card at CL=$4700.  That was when I apped for the Best Buy card.

Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

I am still waiting for my card.  One thing I don't understand is why does this "Platinum" card have such a low CL?  I was approved for BBRZ Plat with $1000 and I read some others received $500.  

 

Seems low for a platinum card!  IMHO

Re: Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard

here is the offical response.

 A delinquent credit obligation(s), either paid
or unpaid, was recorded on your credit bureau report. I'VE PAID THEM OFF TWO YEARS AGO. NO BADDIES SINCE. I however did get a home depot card from citi last month.
