Apping for BofA 99/500

Anyone know what BofA pulls for the Platinum Visa?  I live in TX and was wondering before I went through the app process, to try and get the 99/500.
 
Thanks.

They usually pull EX I think.  I'm in Georgia and that's what they use here.

99% of the time EX. FYI...you'll get hit with two hard pulls on the Plat Plus and again on the 99/500 if offered. But card is worth it. You can also get the 99/500 offer off more than just the Platinum Plus.

Thanks for the info.  Why 2 hard pulls for the Plat Plus? 
Which other CC can I app for to get the 99/500 option?
 
Sorry for all the questions.  I just want to be sure I do this the right way.
 
Thanks.

You get a hard pull for the first CC app. You then get a second inquiry once you respond to their second offer.
 
I had appd for a BofA 3rd party CC and was instantly denied. I then app for the Plat Plus but was denied but immediately counter-offered the Plat Plus 99/500. I print those forms and procrastinate. So, inquiry count is 2. I then get a 99/500 offer in the mail for the first app. That was the card I wanted (better rewards/bonuses). So I accept it and take care of payment via my checking acct info. That produced inquiry #3. The day after the first counter-offer arrived in the mail, I get the second. I sit on it for a while to make sure the first goes through OK, which it did, and finally send it in for the Plat Plus. So, inquiry #4.
 
I was approved for the counter-offer I wanted but denied on the second becuase "I had sufficient credit with them". In other words, you cannot have another card outside of the 99/500.
 
Outside of Plat Plus and the card I have (not on their site), I've read that Worldpoints will counter with a 99/500 if denied, and it seems like I read of yet another card. Slips me at the moment....maybe Americard?
 
Whatever card you get, fully secured, 99/500, or unsecured, you cannot go wrong.

hello
 
Opened a checking account last week at B of A, also applied for the same card
 
gotten turned down.
 
received the 99/500 offer today, filled out and sent it out ASAP
 
I will be happy to receive a B of A  CC,  like you FICO wizards state it looks great
 
on the CRA, lol. they pulled EXP and TU
 
 
 
Thanks ALL.
 
By the way FCNB has removed the charge-off on EQ and TU cant wait till it removes it from EXP
 
EQ score is 669      TU is 677
 
EXP will pull when they remove charge off.

Check EX frequently. It will pop on there first, even up to a week before you get your card.
