I do not believe the 18 month policy applies to the Best Buy store card.
Yeah- I'm a thinkin' it may only apply to the HSBC card - therefore might be best to apply HSBC first - then HSBC store cards.
I doubt the order matters, but I would always app credit cards before store cards. Store cards are a much easier approval. It is even possible that the CL from the credit card approval could help you with the following store card app.
