Will you kindly participate in a survey? I have hit the luv twice, and the reason I was given for denial was "information obtain off your credit report". These were softs. I know I can't be the only one who needs this info! Hope this is ok to post...if not, mods, do your thing.
1) How long did you have Best Buy?
2) Store card or MC? DO you also have Orchard/HSBC?
3) Spending habits/Payment habits?
4) Baddies on report? Scores at CLI time?
5) Original CL? New CL?
6) Call in or luv button push?
Thanks, guys...I am trying to figure the whole thing out. I was given a $2200 limit, buy something every month, PIF'ed, including my no fees amount from December--$600. I am at my 4 month statement, scores in 68s, and still no luv. I do have an old baddie about to fall off, but I can't see why that matters since they gave me the card in the first place?
I do have two Orchards, both who gave me CLI of $100 this month, but only AFTER I was denied BB. Trying to decide if I should recon...trying to boost score by raising limits.

l9ikjam, I guess I have to keep trying! We have similar stories and my scores are at or above yours, but still no luv.
DId you JUST get your first luv button CLI? How long after the store CLI did you have to wait?
