Just got approved for a Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard with a very small toy limit of 100, laughable, I know, but hey not complaining, I will let it sit for a year and if no movement then I will cancel. Im rebuilding my credit and just got a 1200 walmart credit card and others. Apparently there are some points attached to every dollar spent using this card. Anyone have this card or know anything about it? Thanks!

have it. HSBC is not granting CLI at this time but when they start again in the fall, they want HEAVY usage... they are kind of crazy, push at least 3 times your CL through them each month and they will give you more attention, otherwise, forget it and close it because you will hate them forever. if you got 1200 at walmart how did you get 100 at bestbuy?

Thanks for the tips on getting clis. I will try to use this small cl 3 xs its limit monthly hehe without maxing it out and going home quickly and paying it off. I have decided I will give it 8-12 months and if it does not grow with me any bit, then I will most likely close at that time. Oh my gosh, who the heck knows whats going on, I got that Walmart card last month for 1200, thankfully its my highest limit and my fav card, so I thought all cards would follow suit. I do have alot of inq lately and new accts, so maybe this is what has affected the best buy lower limit who knows, also I just got a direct rewards platinum discover with a 300 limit 3 days from the discover site as a counter offer, both are from Hsbc, I take it they are a little conservative as well, I know I have taken some hits but GEMB also just granted me a paypal buyer credit card for 500 with the same inquiry used as best buy for 500. lol and this was 3 days after... There is a thread going on and apparently alot of 100, 300 cls from Best buy hsbc going on right now, so I will stick tight and like I said if I dont see anything substantial, I will just close in 8-12 months. Also, the rest of my baddies are falling off early nezt year, so Im on a credit freeze after this last paypal buyer credit, plus everything I need I can get from my 1200 Walmart card anyways, everything else was just to get my total credit granted up. Maybe Walmart made a mistake and didnt mean to give me that much? LOL Oh well, cant take it back now, Im keeping it!! I just canceled First Premier because they were my first starter card yet they were 79.9% apr and no clis for 13 months and they would charge u for them. Now I feel like HSBC is kind of like another first premier, but at least the apr is a littler better. hehe
