BoA rocks!

I just got a credit increase for my BoA card from 3800 to 6000 using the website. **bleep** that was easy! I should've asked for more :smileysad: And an increase to 3100 from 1500 on my other BoA card.... Not that I'm going to use it because I get cash back on my other cards but heck it helps my utilization. :smileytongue:

Re: BoA rocks!

All I've used was my Amex since it had the 6 month no interest promotion period. So I pretty much charged everything to it while keeping money in my bank earning interest, I only paid the minimum. I just went online right now and did an increase so now it's at 3000/10000 which will be PIFed this month because the promotional period is ending. I've had my Amex for 4-5 months. I'm just very surprised that I was approved for such a high credit line considering I'm only 20 with 2 years of credit history :smileyhappy: Gonna try my chase card now, should receive a reply by tomorrow. It currently has 2k limit (lame!)

Re: BoA rocks!

My 4k went to 10k -because I had an open "loan" that I never ever used. So they transferred it into credit on a backdoor phone number. Then I put my car loan on that with a 4.5% balance transfer ......

I did that last week. I asked for a CLI from 7,100. to 13K, but all I got was 11,700. Which is fine by me, cause that took my util on that card from 64% to 39%, as I have an active BT on it. I haven't done my other BoA card because that one's rarely used and is already at $13,900.
