B of A Approved!!!

Well, I posted several weeks ago about getting two pre-selected offers from BofA.  One was a regular Visa, and the other pre-select was for a secured card.  Well, I contemplated for about 2-3 weeks, and pulled the trigger on the regular Visa.

 

I applied online and was aproved for $1800.  I was shocked because I know they pulled Experian, and that is not my best report.  Although I have paid off quite a few CC's.  I was tempted to try Amex Smiley Very Happy.  But i'm not sure if my Experian report is quite ready for that yet.  

 

But I was glad to get the BofA card, basically to have another major bank card.

Congrats!! You should give Amex a shot, I've read where people on here who have been approved for Amex cards with all types of scores...I've come to notice when app'ing with Amex, it depends on what mood they're in that day..LOL..and if denied you can always do a recon, I say if it's a card you really want, go for it... I will say I suggest app'ing for one of their charge cards first..good luck and Congrats again!!
