Re: My first store card in 10 years

Yes...very cool indeed. I have done a lot of Best Buy shopping over the years with no card. :smileysad: Now I can get better rewards than just a $20 gift certificate every year...LOL! The TVs and theater system won't be here until next Thursday...boring!!!! We are living like it is the the 19th Century! LOL! I keep looking for an old music box to play to kill the silence. Good news is we are getting a lot of stuff unpacked and setup.

Re: My first store card in 10 years

Thanks so much Bs n Ts! I was thinking that the MasterCard would be the one with the higher limits. I didn't realize that it is the store card that comes with the higher limits. :-)

Great credit limit, Congrats!

 

I do want to state however that warranties on LCD tv seem  like a waste of money to me, the quality on them seem to be very good these days

Re: My first store card in 10 years

The reason we got the warranty is because even if my son cracks the screen, it will be replaced for free. I just don't want to take any chances with a 7 year old boy in the house LOL!

I did login to my rewards zone account online and I have Premier Silver status...sweet! :-)

woot! Yeah usually takes a couple weeks to clear purchases to make sure you don't return stuff but other then that its pretty good !

 

I use it mainly for the expedited shipping.

But the end year bonus is awesome got an extra 100 bucks back this year. (on a coupon that can only be used at best buy/ not redeemable for cash/or applied to credit account)
