When I get my current balance paid off which will be in less than 2 weeks i'd like to PC to the cash rewards i have just the normal bank of america card right now. Has anyone had any success in the past with this? and do they do a hard pull, because if that's so i'll need to wait.

I PC'd down from Americard Siggy to Platinum Plus - was able to keep cash rewards. My reason? Platinum Plus reports a credit line; signature cards, by nature, do not which is a utilization killer if carrying high balances.

even though you were downgrading did they pull a CR?

Nope. Wasn't necessary because I wasn't attempting to improve cards - was downgrading.

I upgraded from the plat to the siggy without them running my credit.
How high is your limit? I had a 15K limit on my plat....... If you need to increase your limit to get above 5K it will be a hp. If you are just PCing the card they should not need to run your credit.
My siggy showed on my credit report for 5 months, and then drop off Experian randomly. I PC out of the siggy to make sure the limit reports. In my opinion their are better cash reward cards on the mark that will be certain to report limits.
