I'm guessing the treatments for this portfolio will be like Sears in terms of CS and policies. Guess we'll be getting yet another new plastic wave late 2013.

Re: Citibank Is Taking Over CapitalOne's Best Buy Portfolio

Good read, thanks for posting it..

 

Maybe that's why I was not approved for a BestBuy Card last week despite my low utils and pretty good CS...  I have 2 CapOne cards and after 13yrs of perfect history with them, I finally received CLIs today from 500.00 and 300.00 to 2,500.00 on each of them.. But, only after sending a letter to the CEO on Friday...  I have a ton of money sitting in their brokerage and they've still be very very difficult to build a relationship with...  I bet Best Buy was not to happy to see how much business they were losing because of CapOnes business model for store card approvals..

Does this effect the RZMC? Would love to get in with Citi although I would imagine C.O. will pc those accounts.
