Right now I have two too many HSBC cards. I love my 2% cash back (actually has a really great limit) that one was by invitation only. But also have the Best Buy MasterCard and Best Buy Store Card. (just got these last two because didn 't want the store card but the limit on the Master wasn't high enough for my purchase).I dont know what criteria they use but I have heard if they send you an invitation through the mail you may be able to have more than one card. Seems it would be the same on the site. Haven't gotten a pre app since I got the BB cards but all of the ones I had before, said in tiny writing on the back, that the limit was two to cardholder.WBLAKE dont see how they said you have two of the same types of cards unless they mean same tier (whatever that means). A Store Card and a MC are two different animals if that's the Best Buy card you have.
I have an Orchard Card, and know that I'm not eligible for another account, but I still play with the "card selector" to see what comes up.
Last time, it was an "HSBC Platinum."
What *should* come up is a message saying:
"NO OFFER FOUND
you can only have one type of HSBC credit card account"
b/c that's their policy!
