BofA unsecured!

Just want to say thanks for all the success stories people have posted about calling BofA to have their cards unsecured.  I opened it on May 10, 2008 with $300.  I was looking at the account today and realized it was just over 9 months, so I called the number on the card and asked about unsecuring.

 

The woman told me to wait until 12 months and call back.  So I called the backdoor and asked again and the guy said my account was eligible at 9 months for a review and asked if I wanted to try it.

 

He put me on hold for a couple minutes and came back and said as of today the card is unsecured and they gave me a $500 CLI as well.

 

It's a far cry from other peoples 10k + limits, but I am darned happy about it!

 

 

9 months and 7 days...thanks again folks!

Hmm I forgot about a product change I was so excited about it being unsecured.  But thinking now..I don't want to look to eager as they gave me this secured card with a BK from 2006 on my report.  I want to show them that I've become more responsible first.  Possibly I should wait like 6 months or so?

I did a product change the same day I called and asked for the card to be unsecured.  This was last week.  The CSR that unsecured the card said I should wait 6 months before asking for the change, but she sent me to that department anyway.  I was given the World Points card.

 

I'd say give it a try.
