Oh my, I just tried the best buy store card application - I didn't see the appearance of a preapproval or the plan A or B options, but I made sure that I was on the store card. Had to call and verify some info and approved for $2200 cl??? I am in shock. I too have a mid 600 score, guess it depends on who they pulled EQ is higher 600s though. All I can is wow...total shock.
Congrats to you OP on your approval.

I was approved for the Plan B since my EQ was mid/low 600's at the time. Sounds like you got the Plan A with a better APR% and more generous CLI's. I just use the card to float my purchases for small items since they have great no interest for 3/6/18 months depending on the purchase amount.
Enjoy your new store card!

Good to know, with Father's Day approaching this card will be helpful with gift purchases - I need to call back and find out my statement closing date, etc - I want to take advantage of the increased credit but not do any damage to my util!!
