Thank you Best Buy

I opened my Store Card on Black Friday of last year and they gave me $3000 to start which is really great cause they denied me 2 years prior. Fast forward 6 months and they gave me a credit limit increase from $3,000 to $4,500. So just now i thought since the holidays are coming up why not try my luck again for another CLI w/ Best Buy and i got a NO-HASSLE SOFT PULL increase to $6,000.

 

$3,000 > $4,500 > $6,000 all within my first year of account being opened. No other creditors have came close to that.

~~In my wallet: Best Buy $7500, Dell Preferred $5500, Discover IT $4000, Chase Freedom $3500, Barclays NFL Extra Points $3300, Sears $2800, Bill Me Later $2100, CapOne Platinum $2000, Kohls $1500, Target $200

Nice limit increases. They have been generous to me as well. 1200 to 3000 after a few months. I just checked their site. They are now offering 1250 bonus points for signing up.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Re: Thank you Best Buy

It also looks like they restructured their mastercard. Now it looks like a prime card, and the store card looks sub prime.
