Re: I pulled the trigger on BOA Better Balance Card.

I called the backdoor # for the secured and partially secured and they obliged...we will see though. I will keep you updated...this would be great because it would be essentially free money. This card is never used because he has double digit unsecured cards from chase, citi, and amex now.

Re: I pulled the trigger on BOA Better Balance Card.

didnt realize BofA reports to the CR right away. Just got an alert on EQ and EX that a new account had been added. Only took a couple of days after approval for it to show up. Of course TU hasnt reported yet (slow like always).

If you have a secured card, don't you have to get it unsecured first?

Re: I pulled the trigger on BOA Better Balance Card.

It does seem like a really good deal, it's on my short list. I wonder if any one else wants to pay me for what I was going to do any way lol.
