BestBuy MC Rewards now citi

I was logging into my BBMC Rewards card and noticed the following in the log in screen:

Important Account Notice
Beginning September 6, 2013 your Reward Zone MasterCard will be owned by Citibank, N.A.. From September 5 - 9, this website will be available for viewing account information only. Account management features including online payments, emergency card replacements, update contact information etc. will be unavailable during this period. As of September 9 you will need to register your account through Citibank, N.A. to continue managing your account online.

Is this just the BestBuy MC card or also Best Buy? I hope this is good, because my card was never going to grow being backed by capital one.
My current scores: MyFico- EQ: 8/13- (648), 8/13- EX (637), Wally TU (666)

Prime cards in my wallet: Citi Thank You (1500), Amex TE (1200), Amex Zync.

I believe its only the MC, I have the regular store card and I don't get any notices concerning the switch to Citi

I guess the MC is the only one converting. My husband has the store card and nothing. But, looks like any new issues cards are backed by Citi.

Re: BestBuy MC Rewards now citi

I don't have the card but I checked the store card site and it also has the notice. The cards are now now called My Best BuyTM MasterCard®  and My Best BuyTM Credit Card. The web site is http://bestbuy.accountonline.com/ and these accounts will be handled independently from Citicards CNBA. No PCing into Citicard products and no CL merges, etc. I know a lot of people were excited/hopeful that they could get in with Citi :/ New plastics to be issued in October.

All Best Buy accounts owned by Capital One Financial are going to Citi Retail Services, a division of Citibank USA NA and not Citicards CBNA. The deal made no mention of exceptions or exclusions. The info is also posted on both sites for store and RZMC login.

Re: BestBuy MC Rewards now citi

On my log in it said on September 9th I would have to re-register on the new site with Citi. I'm assuming they will be sending new cards.
