vms's review: Callout Comment I applied in the store after reading reviews. This was helpful because it allowed me to ensure I was getting Best Buy Card and not Best Buy Visa. Also, it allowed me the opportunity to state how much I planned on spending in store that date and sure enough - my credit limit of 2000 exactly matches what I planned to spend! Would recommend applying this way.

Remarks For most people, it works applying in-store. As for me, Ive been approved for the BestBuy Mastercard a year ago but it has a bad CL and AF. So I decided to apply for the store card, in the store. Well, I was disapproved for reasons that were on my report since getting the MasterCard. IDK, but I would really like the store card for the higher CL and no AF.

Remarks Did you apply for a promo? I believe they are offering 0% on purchases totaling $699 and up, and 0% for 3 years on TV's $999 and up.

Congratulations and good luck

Remarks Glad to hear of all approvals! With my luck, they denied me online and would not reconsider when I called them.

Remarks WEll when I applied in store, it was just to get the card. I had already bought dvds, and a cd, and then thought about what everyone has been doing to get approved. WOuld my chances have been better if I was to acutally buy something big????? The world will never know. I just didn't want to be embarrassed of having the merchandise rung up then not being approved as I had no means of buying a $700 computer that day. But as I say it maybe wasn't meant to be if I was not approved.
