BOA Better Balance Rewards Card

- Will it automatically be a WMC if one has a CL greater than $5K?

 

- If no, will it report the CL?

 

- Looking into this card for the $25 per quarter for paying more than the min payment.

 

Any opinions so far?

Re: BOA Better Balance Rewards Card

I will let you know when I get mine. Approved on the weekend for 12.5k. Got approved at 11.99% rate, with 15 mos 0% on purchases, and BT. No-fee BT for first 60 days account is opened. It does report the limit - even though the card has not arrived yet, it is already reporting.

 

For me, it was a good card to have for BT's. For people who may carry a balance, but pay more than the minimum when they do it is a no-brainer.


CC's: AMEX (4), Alliant Visa, PenFed AMEX, Pen Fed Promise, Citi (4), Chase (6), Nordstrom Visa,US Bank Cash+, Huntington Voice, UMB Visa, Nasa FCU Plat Cash Visa, Barclay's Visa, Citi (5), Discover IT, Walmart Discover, Sam's MC, Cabela's Visa, Cap One QS, BOA (2), BMW Visa, Comenity Visa/MC (3), Ebates Visa Siggy, 5/3 RLR MC, DC Premier MC, Macy's AMEX; A few store cards.

Current Scores: EQ My Fico (12/14): 785; TU MyFico (12/14): 793; EX (My Fico): 765; Walmart TU Fico 08 (1/2015): 788

Re: BOA Better Balance Rewards Card

I picture it as a basic card with no rewards and the only good thing is the $25 quarterly free $$

 

I'm considering trading my 1-2-3 Privileges for this card.

Re: BOA Better Balance Rewards Card

Compared to 1-2-3, this card pays better and offers lower APR if you spend less that $10,000/yr or 5,000/yr or 3,000/yr respectively. So for many of us in that situation...it's a no brainer to switch :smileytongue:

Re: BOA Better Balance Rewards Card

So it seems that there is also a Visa version of this card. Since it seems to be a basic, would it report the CL?
