Re: HSBC Multiple accounts

After being transferred from overseas to credit department, she also did not know the answer, she then transferred me to the application line which then refers you to householdbank.com... Not a help at all!

 

I did the pre-qual at householdbank.com while waiting for her and I was pre-approved for Platinum which is better then what I was getting before but it had an annual fee, I thought that was the whole point of Platinum is no annual fee and higher credit lines.  I'm just going to keep this card for 6 months, then check bestbuy agian and see if they pre-qual me for the platinum

Funny, I was just doing the same thing, householdbank.com pre-qual and also got pre approved but then got "you have the maximum number of HSBC cards message. I wonder if that counts as a hard inquiry anyway.

Re: HSBC Multiple accounts
