New BestBuy MC

I received a letter stating I am getting a new Best Buy MC.  The card pictured looks essentially the same, we will see what the real one looks like.  

It seems like the Cap1 takeover is now complete.

Re: New BestBuy MC

I wonder if Capital One will ever graduate any cards to no AF.  Considering it's Capital One, I guess I won't hold my breath.

Re: New BestBuy MC

I see online, that effective September 2012, they have listed Terms and Conditions for 3 versions of BB Cards:

 

BBRZ Platinum MC (No AF)  - with 17.99 APR (Intro 11.9% for qualified purchases made at account opening, up to 48 mos)

 

BB Consumer (Store) Card (NO AF)  - 25.24 or 27.99 APR, depending on credit worthiness( also eligible for 11.9% for qualified purchases made at acct opening, up to 48 mos)

 

BBRZ Gold Card ($59 AF) - 21.74 APR (also eligible for 11.9% for qualified purchases made at account opening, up to 48 mos). Minimum limit $300

 

I haven't seen the Platinum card listed there for awhile. I know they stopped taking apps for it awhile ago.

My BestBuy Gold MC (surprisingly) has no annual fee.  Hopefully, I am upgraded to a Platinum card.

Cap1 unlike most people in the subprime market isn't that huge on AFs. All their subprime cards have AFs, but they're not really that astronomical compared to some others out there, so I wouldn't be surprised if cap1 dumped the AF on a store card.

+1000, As much as Cap1 gets on my dang nerves sometimes they are a great lender for people who are looking to Build/Re-Build. They Def helped me out 3 years ago. I think if Cap1 would loosen their grip on Their CLI policy and UN-Willingness to grow with cardmembers, they would look much more appealing to Everyone :smileywink:

Re: New BestBuy MC

I used Cap One when I was rebuilding, but my beef with them is that they almost never graduate their cards once you have rebuilt.  You have to re-apply and take a hit on all three CRAs if you want their better cards.  It's terrible business.

Re: New BestBuy MC

Does the letter mention any other changes? New acct number? Terms? I'm actually surprised they didn't replace Gold with Platinum and Platinum with World. The APR tier is high too 17.99%, expected them to offer a range like the other reward cards of 12.9% and up.
