Bank of america secured card unsecured ?

[ Edited ]

I think my bank of america card unsecured today because I see the credit in my checking account. Should I wait until next month to get a CLI or can I call and get one. It looks like it unsecured about 2 weeks early:catsurprised:

Was it a hard pull for the credit limit increase? Did they take off the annual fee?

So I called them for the increase and since I'm under 21 they will send me a letter about the increase and I have to fill it out. The annual fee stays **bleep**. If I can't get it refunded and taken off I will eventually close the account.

Re: Bank of america secured card unsecured ?

annual fee stayed. They said they couldn't at that time and to call back in a few months. I know a member here was able to get the annual fee removed after graduation a couple months later when the next AF showed up. So Maybe they can't/won't do it before the first 12-13 months. My AF came on my second statement last year, so 12 months from that will be the next  statement for me (which will start in like 3 days). So i will see in a few days what can be done.
