Close Best Buy MC for Amazon Store Card?

I'm thinking about closing my Best Buy Rewards Zone MasterCard, I've had it since 07/2010 for a Amazon store Card. I'm not a fan of Crap1 and was disappointed when they took over the accounts from HSBC. I have A CSP MC so I will still have a MC on hand. I noticed that the Amazon financing is just as good or better than the Best Buy card's. Although I was able to get the annual fee waived this year, I have a feeling that will not happen again now that Crap1 has taken over. And lastly, CLI's are a hassle to get and I here GE gives CLI every 4 months. Please share your thoughts.

Re: Close Best Buy MC for Amazon Store Card?

best rewards are nice especially if shopping at bestbuy but its hard to push enough money through the low limit cards, I like there resturant reward program, but in the end I dropped my BestBuy card, CapOne just doesn't seem to care about the HSBC cards or retaining there users. No attempt to make me an offer when I was closing the card. Drop them unless you like making multiple payments a month for rewards. 0 interest deals are just too common these days and amazon probably have much better prices anyway.

Thanks! My limit is decent....$2.5k but I just do not trust/like Crap1. Since my AF was waived last week, I'll wait to close.
