Best Buy Card Sold to Citibank. Closed My Original Account.

Postby Dylan1982 » Sat Nov 02, 2013 9:35 am

I was checking my credit karma score a couple of weeks ago and saw that my Best Buy credit limit was taken away and my account was closed out. I didn't think much of it b/c I had not used my Best Buy card since 5/2011.

Got my mail on Wednesday this past week and saw that I got a new Best Buy card from Citi.

The original account was closed and reopened on my credit report..
Chase Freedom - $12,500 (2/2013)
GM Card - $7,700 (7/2002)
CitiBank (Thank You Preferred) - $6,400 (6/2012)
CitiBank (Diamond Preferred) - $4,600 (6/2012)
Rogers & Hollands - $3,300 (3/2006)
Target REDcard - $3,000 (11/2014)
BestBuy - $1,600 (9/2003)
Discount Tires - $1,000 (2/2004)
Kohl's - $300 (4/2012)

The new account has the same open date as the old one. Odd that they closed it but opened a new one. I guess thats normal if the bank change. They also bumped my credit limit up to $3K
