Re: BOA 123 Cash REWARDS (99/500) annual fee rmvd!

Ok so I know at this point no one is gonna believe me but today I called BOA to make sure my annual fee was reversed permanently as promised and the rep confirmed that it was! So I got the gumption to ask if my apr could be lowered too jokingly.  And the rep said " well im glad you asked about it. I see I can lower your apr from  20.24 to 16.24" "thanks for managing so well with your account" then he read script about if I miss payments etc that my apr can go to 29.99. He said" if you continue to manage your account well you should call back in 3 to 6 months and see if theres anything lower". I NEVER carry a balace *knock on wood* and literally use it for anything that takes visa...even my rent! But it was worth me asking! And they did it! The number ive been using is  1-866-421-8153  I would luv to know if other ppl havegood luck!

@jsnlwrnc

That's awesome! I always ask when req a CLI...By the way... Can you lower my APR? All they can say is no.
