My BBRZMC has an $800 with a $59 AF. I havent used this card in over 2 years. I think they dont ax me for hte $59 AF. It's easy money for them. Imagine about 100,000 people pay this AF and don't use the card. That's an easy buck for them :smileyhappy:

Re: Best Buy mastercard?

Yeah I got approved for that silly card in '09 when attempting to get the Best Buy Card for my Iphone. I got a $59 AF and $500. Knowing that my cred was better than that even then with Cap One and Chase maxed out LOL I closed it immediately. If you need it to build credit, keep it a little bit... But monitor your credit and when your scores are 650-680-700'ish with higher limits --$2k+ "chop it" and get a diff card. Any card with an annual fee is BAD! The only one I have is an Orchard Bank card, BUT the AF is only $39, and it's a 6 year old account with a $1,500 limit.
