BOFA 99/500 Graduated

Ok so I've been doing some CC maintenance the past few days.  After getting CLI's on my NFCU cards I decided to call BOFA regarding my 99/500 card.  I've had it since last May and it just passed the 9 month mark.  I was transferred to the secured card department and the rep told me that my account was eligible for review and he put me on hold for a few minutes.  He came back on the line and told me that my card was no longer secured and that I'd receive my $99 refund in 7-10 days.  They gave me a CLI from $500 to $1,000.  I think I'll give Cap One a call and see if they're feeling generous.

I was going to check into the product change but the rep I was speaking with didn't know too much about it so I didn't mess with it.  Can you give me any advice on going about getting one?  And also what you changed to, did you pay an AF?

Re: BOFA 99/500 Graduated

Thank you thank you!  I called them back and was easily able to change to the World Points w/no AF.  I also asked for a CLI and she asked what I wanted and I said $5k.  She said the request has been submitted and I'll know if 5-7 days if it's approved.  She also said I could check online to see if it shows up.  Did you have any luck with a CLI when you did your product change?  Thanks again!

Yeah, I doubt they'll give it to me but she asked me how much I wanted so I threw the $5k number out there.  Will let you know!
