BOA Secured....Unsecured!

I was checking my bank account earlier and noticed I had a 99$ deposit that posted. I knew instantly what it had to be. But my BOA Secured card was only 9 months old so when I looked at the account info for my card, the limit was now showing $2000!

So they unsecured my $500 secured card and gave me an auto 4x increase to $2000. I'm so freaking excited I can't stand it. I wasn't expecting any unsecuring action for another 3 months. Plus they did all that without me initiating it. So I'm assuming it was all done with a soft pull. If they do all this auto, shouldn't it be a soft pull?

Re: BOA Secured....Unsecured!

[ Edited ]

Well I was just approved for Discover It with a $7000 credit line. I've already received the card a couple of days ago, but it's not reporting yet. So the BOA at $500 was actually my highest limit as far as they could see. Smiley Happy  But I pushed about $800 a month through it, making payment at least 3 times a month. And of course always paying in full each month as soon as the statement cut. I never let a statement cut with more than 10% util on it.

 

Plus I think they pull TU for increases, and it's gone up a lot over the last few months, currently at 711.

Actually mine came with rewards already attached. I had originally apped for the Visa Sig card and was denied, but they countered the 99/500 card and I took it. But when it came in the mail it was a Cash Rewards 123 card, although secured, but I wasn't complaining. I've redeemed probably around $100 in rewards in the last 9 months, love it!
