Boa APR reduction

Upon looking at the second statement on my BOA Travel Rewards card, the 22.90% APR really annoyed me. So I called the number on the back of the card and spoke with an account manager about an APR reduction. She was able to reduce the APR down to 11.90% :smileysurprised:. She also reminded me to call back a couple months later to check for rate reduction.

 

Just wanted to share my exp. You may want to call in and ask if you have sky high rate with them :smileytongue:

Re: Boa APR reduction

I went from 20.99% to 12.99% on my Travel Rewards. A very simple process.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)
