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.

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.

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.
