hodgebutt's review: Callout Comment I applied for this card because I love best buy and shop there often, but they only gave me a $500 CL! I haven't had a limit this low in a super long time and will probably lead to a high utilization of the card. video games are gettin rather pricey!

Remarks They are probably charging you an AF along with that low CL!

Give them a call and tell them you want to close the account. When they ask for the reason, tell them the CL is way too low. They might transfer you to an account manager who might offer to raise your CL.

Sometimes this works, sometimes this doesn't.

But its worth a try!

I Only Got $300 User Icon on 2008-06-14

Remarks You should have applied for the store card... I did but they gave me this one instead saying I wasn't approved for the store card... The annual fee is like $59 to $79... I got the same problem with utilization... It didn't take long!!

Go For The Store Card Instead. User Icon on 2008-06-14

Remarks To all those who are about to apply...

request for the store card and apply in store.

i initially applied for the MC and got denied.

after 6 months, I requested for the store card.

got approved for an initial 1800... Which was increased to 3400 after 3 months..

then the increase was every 6 months..( I always hit the love button online!)

now my CL is $5,500.

best buy is a good electronics store.
