Congrats on 2008-08-08

Congrats but Best Buy limits are a joke. Tell me what kind of computer can you get for $300 or flat screen! Circuit City seem to give out higher limits. But then again that is Chase bank vs HSBC

RE: Islander on 2008-08-09

This card is offered by HSBC Retail Services and is a sub-division of HSBC Bank but HSBC R/S is a lot better. They are more generous with their CLI's and report a few days after your statement cuts.

RE: Islander on 2008-08-09

I believe GEMB and Merrick Bank who issues the Hooters card are BK friendly.

RE: Shark6 on 2008-08-09

The Best Buy store card is very generous with CLI's unlike the Best Buy Mastercard. I've had both cards and I love the Best Buy store card but closed the MC because I couldn't stand the way they treated me as a loyal customer.

RE: CASD57 on 2008-08-12

If the card doesn't have an annual or monthly fee, don't close it. Closing an account with a good amount of history will hurt your score especially when you are rebuilding your credit.

For cards that you don't use, make sure you use it once every 2 months to show activity or else the creditor will close the account for inactivity.

AU on 2008-08-14

Does anyone know if the account info gets reported on the AU's credit report? I added my parents as AU's on my account and they didn't ask for a social. The whole idea of me doing this is to help them with utilization and increase their FICO scores.
