matthew101's review:

I received an offer in the mail saying I was pre-approved for this card.  My scores are btwn 630-649. I applied online and was not approved instantly, they were to get back to me.  I figured that was a no.  Few days later received email welcoming me to the Best Buy Reward Zone Mastercard. Got the card yesterday with a $300 CL. Upon activating the card, I was told that the AF was $74. Finding this website I took the advice of others and called to threaten to cancel.  Transferring me to an Accounts Manager she offers to cut the fee in half to $37 which I was OK with.  Mentioning the low CL, I was shot down by her saying that's all she can do but they do review the accounts on a regular basis for CLI. On a side note:  I was instantly approved online for Capital One Platinum Visa with a $300 CL and after three payments it was increased to $500.

Congrats! Yeap, had the card for 2 years too and closed it because of no CLI. It's def a rebuilder card, but it will help to open doors to other cards in the future for you.

Congratulations!

Ive had the card for over 2 years now, and only received 1 credit increase for $100 a year ago. I recently called in to attempt to get one to be told they are not giving customer requested increases at this time.
