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.


What score you need to get this account? EQ:632.

Re: New BestBuy MC

I have no idea, due to the various tiers it is very flexible approvals. Your friend will probably get the Gold with AF.

Re: New BestBuy MC

I have a $500 CL Gold that's been SDed - though I don't have an AF for another 10 months.

 

I'm wondering if the Platinum is really available yet and whether or not I should should app for it with a CLI.

 

Thoughts?

Re: New BestBuy MC

There was no mention in the letter about the account number changing.  The letter mentions the new card will no longer support PayPass, tap-to-pay functionality (no idea what these are as I didn't use these features anyway).   Otherwise, the new card is to work the same as the old card.  New account will have an option to pay over time with up to 18 month financing (which I have already taken advantage of for a new laptop).   The new card will give up to 4% back in rewards.  Fine print says the card has Annual fee of $0 - $59 based on creditworthiness.

Re: New BestBuy MC

I just received the letter on the new card yesterday. I was wondering when they would update the card, where the MC hologram is on the back of the card instead of the front. Even though its a plain looking card, I like the new design. The background color looks to be the same blue type color as Best Buy, has a small Best Buy logo  at the type left left hand side, and says "rewardzone" right beside it. Plain and simple and I like it. Sometimes less is better.

I know but I mean the MC version is on the high side, compared to other similar products. Even the Sony Store Visa has a 13.99%+ pricing whereas Best Buy MasterCard is 17.99%+.

Yup. PayPass is going away.

Re: New BestBuy MC

The new design is much nicer, finally hologram on back. I wonder if they will send out new cards for everyone or just the PayPass users. I guess I can just request a replacement card when I know the new plastic is being issued.
