BOA CLI success

 

It has been six months since I got my last CLI on BOA rewards visa card.  Currently at $3000

 

Decided to request a CLI online, and asked for $10,000   the system came back with an approval of $7,000.  (I am sure took a HP for it)

 

Called the backdoor number for recon, and visited with a very nice rep, she asked a few questions about employment info, salary, credit history etc. 

 

Then approved my request of $10,000 !!!!!!!!

 

I also asked if they could lower my APR and she agreed with that as well.  From 19.99 to 12.99!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I am very excited!!! 

 

Thanks for all the suggestions and help!

Re: BOA CLI success

They seem to be the best with credit limit increases. The first increase I got was 5500 and the next was 7500; both hard inquiries, but worth it.
