Re: Best Buy store card w/Capital One

I got mine back in HSBC days, so it was one pull from EQ. I would lock two to avoid three HP application, what a nightmare!

Re: Best Buy store card w/Capital One

I know...that's why I never applied for a Capital One card in the past, on top of mixed reviews with credit lmits and their customer service. It's only because of the Best Buy promotional financing for bigger purchases that caused me to blink on this one. 

 

Please keep the information coming. I'm sure others on here would be curious as well. Again, I'm curious as to what card you were offered, the limit, and what your credit score/history was like at the time, especially if it was in the last six months once Capital One took over the financing.

which credit bureau(s) did Capital one pull? I know they tend to pull all three, but wondered if it's different when applying for a Best Buy card.


They still pull all 3. I think they pull all 3 for every card they offer, including store cards and cobranded cards. 

 

The best buy card isn't a bad one, it just sucks that you don't pick which one you apply for. You could get stuck with the crappy $59 AF Gold, or get the $0 AF plat (which would be cool). I don't mind that GE does apps like this (where they consider you for visa/mc/discover/amex first, and then try for store card) since none of their cards really have AFs. but getting stuck with a $59 AF gold mastercard would suck. :smileytongue: 

 

 

I do know someone on here has a best buy store card with a ~30k limit. I remember seeing that post :smileytongue:
