Upgrading BofA card??

My first ever credit card was the BofA student rewards card 6 years ago. Within this time period I have had some missed payments with them back from 2009 but have been current and the balance was paid to zero a couple months ago I dont want to close this since it is my first credit card but I want to upgrade to the cash rewards card instead of the student since I am not a student and there are no benefits on this card anymore since my missed payments and my interest rate sky-rocketed...I applied for the cash rewards card but got denied about a week ago. Does anyone know who I can call or if it even possible to upgrade cards with them? Would I have to do a recon? If it is going to restart my card opened date then I dont want to do it because my AAoA will go way down


Current Score: EQ 632 EX 653 TU 617

Re: Upgrading BofA card??

First rule of thumb..Recon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also after a 6 year old account I would think your eligible for other cards as well

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I would call them and see what they have to offer. You are a good customer; they know that. Smiley Happy
