BOFA why must you tempt thou

The other day when I called in for a APR decrease. I noticed BOFA put  2 Balance Transfer promos on my account.  0% APR  to Mar 2014 , and 1.99 APR  to Jun14 transfer fee 4%.  Also includes cash advances to my checking account.  While I don't per say need the money , it a pretty cheap loan , and  I am going on a trip at end of March to SF.  I assume they are trying to entice me because my Utilization overall on my report is never above 5% , and I pif my sigga cash rewards  each month.

I also have these BT offers on my account. Plus today I called them and they upped my credit limit from $2, 500 to $12, 500 with only a SP (haven't seen any hard from them as yet) and upgraded my basic Bank Americard Visa card to a Travel Rewards card. They sent a feedback questionnaire to my email and I was effusive with praise for the excellent service I received from BofA. :smileyhappy:

 

I also keep my overall util really low... just 1% and I used the BT offers on their card regularly and PIF. I guess they like that so they've decided to reward me for been a good customer.

Dare I say BofA/FIA really is awesome now.  They have been great to me in the last two years.  They have done 3 CLI (1 w/ hard pull), 4 PC's and reduced my purchases/BT's to 9.99%.  I just got the Fidelity Amex without a problem.  They always send me offers like 5x points on certain categories and offer special BT"S promotions.  They have been better to me than Chase has.   That is saying a lot because Chase also takes care of me but lately FIA has been on their game!  I like bank competition!  Too bad bad US Bank could not compete, RIP Cash+ you will be missed.

Yes I think the big banks are finally loosening up after the great credit crunch of 09. They've been pumped with money from the Feds and I think they are in the mood to lend if you meet their profile. So far, the three bigs: Citi, Chase, and BofA have been good to me.
