Best Buy Citibank Tradeline

Postby SuperKirby » Sun Sep 29, 2013 2:27 pm

With the new Best Buy transition from Cap1 to Citi, did anyone see a new added account on their credit reports yet for the new Best Buy Citibank card?
My Cap1 Best Buy TL has been reported as a closed account for awhile now, but no sign of the new Citi Best Buy. I'm dying to see if the kept my old TL.

Yes I did this month. I have a Best buy card and it was transitioned twice. Once from HSBC to Cap One for a month, no change on my report. This month however it now belongs to Citi and the Cap One acct is registered as closed. It was a starter card and when I called for a CLI I was told they are not offering them at this time. That was 2 weeks ago. I don't really care because I do not use it. It along with my other "300" club cards are going to stay just that. I was under the impression I could get automatic increases but it hasn't happened. I have never missed a payment, but I was making the mistake of allowing a high balance to report. I thought this was a good thing. In any event I now have them all paid to zero and do not want to micromanage these cards for the purpose of begging for a CLI. I will wait until my credit scores (that I just got up over 700) to cycle through another 30 to 60 days and go for a better card all together. I am over the sub prime market, I want a card I can grow with, and from reading all the insightful posts here I will do just that!

Thanks everyone!
