Crzy LOV from BoA u won't believe this !!!!

So I have 3 credit cards from BOA

Cash rewards- $8500 limit... 8499 balance
Acc Amex- $7500 limit...7300 balance
Plat - $10000 limit...9800 balance


Paid 16k the the 14th to pay the cards off and then charged 16,500 2 days later that's the 8499 and 7300 balance as of today. Also the 9800 is current balance as of right now...

Long story short the plat plus I had them convert it to a cash back, they have me a sig visa... I called in today yes I still owe 9800 on a 10,000 limit.. I asked them how the sig works and will It let me charge more than my limit... Rep said why I told her I need to charge 18k to buy stuff on blk Friday... My house got messed up with the hurricane so need to replace stuff. She said that the sig card approves charges on a case by case basis. She then said why dont u ask for a credit limit increase, I told her I just got one last month on a 3 cards for a total of 8500 Increase all on all cards..she said let me get in touch with a credit analyst supervisor she got me over to him he asked why I needed to spend so much and saw the payment history and usage...he said how much will u charge I said first off I'm making a payment Tom for 9800 to pay off the balance, and then I will charge 18k on Friday he said so let's try to see if we can give u 20k.... 5 mins later BAM 20k limit event bough balance is 9800 still.... I love Bank of America best bank ever !!!!

I think they're more worried about pissing off hurricane victims to avoid bad press. BOA worst bank ever when you want to close their accounts and wants to charge you $12 after 13 years of being with them for a cashiers check, and rather have you walk out with 50k+ in cash.

You got possibly the best secured card on the market. This card can grow along your entire credit history. Make sure to treat it well. I have only good things to say about my experience with BofA.

Just a thought but if you charge that close to the limits and PIF each month you sound like a great match for an AMEX charge product.
