I got the bill before I even activated my card. It was $39.00 annual fee due right away and the limit for the card, which I had not even used yet was only $500.00. Yeah... I did not activate the card and canceled it and paid the devil their $39.00. I will never go into Best Buy again.

WOW! You started with a $500 CL. Not bad for this card! Congrats! Use it and push for CL's. They are not known to be high CL grantors but, it opens doors for other cards!

I would have kept the account open for a year to make the inquiry and the $39 fee that you paid worth it. After a year, call them to see if they can waive or reduce the annual fee.

Since you did close the account, I would suggest writing to them to have the trade line deleted from your credit report so it does not affect your score having a brand new account. It may or may not work, but worth a shot.
