"Approved In Store": My Best Buy® MasterCard® Review
Written by: 7wonders on 2008-11-19
Approved for the Best Buy Platinum MasterCard in-store today. I read some earlier review about applying in the store and took the advice. Boy did it pay off! I received a Platinum status and a CL of $7,000. The employee in the store fills out the application for you, and then enters it in their system (to avoid fraud etc.). She explained I was approved for both the Best Buy store card (CL of $3,500) as well as the MasterCard. I will receive both cards in the mail within 7-10 days, but was approved on the spot to make an in-store purchase ASAP. I'll wait on the card(s) to arrive before putting them to use for X-Mas! FYI, my Equifax score as of 11/18/2008 was 766.

Score and credit lines. Congratulations!! I didn't think they gave that high of a limit on their MasterCards, maybe they're not so bad afterall. Enjoy both cards!

Wow, that is high for them. I wonder if you only got the MasterCard would they have given you $10,500?
I like the card design.

Actually I did inquire about the CL amount, if possibly combined. The answer is NO, but that's OK by me. I am interested in seeing what the Best Buy Platinum card design looks like (color etc.) if there's any difference even at all? I'll let you all know. Thanks for the comments! I have all major cards, except for Discover. However, I will wait on that one until Jan 2009.
