Over the last week I have seen several individuals asking whether to cancel their BB cards as they seem to not be willing to give any real CLs. If you accept it I would not look to it  becoming a card with a major CL.

Big difference to us who either had a best buy store card "B Level" or the lower limit MasterCard with or without annual fee that use to be offered by HSBC for just about any credit rating.

someone that has a store card with several thousand cl or mc with no af and several thousand cl probably just have to take the hp and they can go up a lot... Many board members have 10,20, even $40k limit store and MasterCard best buy and I assume since they now offer the same 0% offers on the MasterCard they are trying to swap people out and hope they burry themselves by charging over top of their 0% in store charges with MasterCard outside best buy purchases!!! Brilliant plan actually but if you understand it and handle it correctly and are a best buy shopper it's actually a pretty good card when you step up to elite status on the rewards program

i definitely see your point of view..Citi trying to capture outside sales. I currently have a 10K credit line, so hopefully I fall in with those who have made there cards grow to 25Kplus.
