Best Buy (store card) Apr Increase

Just got notice in the mail that they are changing the terms and conditions of my account. From 20.xx% to 25.99.

 

It doesnt really matter as I only use it for the 0% offers, but man, I thought that 20% was bad. 

 

Anyway just thought I'd share with you.

They just closed mine for non-use, only used it once for the 0% deal back in 2007.  Funny they sent me an email, then I couldn't log on so I called only to find out they closed it.

Haven't received the notice yet, but the only thing I have it for is the 0% offers anyway.

Re: Best Buy (store card) Apr Increase

One thing I've been wondering about Best Buy is the debt cancellation that is on every statement.  I always use the 0% deals but every month there a charge for debt cancellation.  So this leads me to believe that you can never buy anything on a Best Buy credit card that is same as cash.

You need to follow up on this with Best Buy. I've never had any such charge on a statement. It's very easy to unknowingly agree to something amongst all the fine print. Call and ask about this.

Ok I called and canceled it.  Geez they really really try to make you keep it.  I really hated Best Buy for this charge but its HSBC that is charging it not Best Buy. Now my 0% purchases can truly be 0%.  I wonder how much they are making off of people with this stupid charge?
