Visa Signature Question

Hi Everyone!

 

I got approved for the BoA AAA Membership Visa Signature today at my highest CL 5k!  I was wondering if anyone could explain how this is going to report?  I want the CSP and after I was declined I spoke with a Chase rep who said my only reason for denial was I did not have a comparable credit line.  I just want to make sure they will be able to see my limit when I decide to apply again.

 

Thanks!

Re: Visa Signature Question

Hi there! First of all; Congrats on your new card! There are a lot of different answers for this question. Back in the early days of the visa sig; the credit access line did not report. For most lenders; they have now started reporting the access line. My NFCU visa signature reports its full line. These usually report as a flexible spending account... on manual review; these types of accounts are viewed positively by lenders... Congrats again!

Re: Visa Signature Question

As a boa visa signature, credit limit probably won't be reported. They're pretty much the only ones still not reporting yet(their world mastercards do though)

This is not true. They do report your credit limit.

Re: Visa Signature Question

The issue of whether it reports or not depends on the lender that issued the card.
Chase and NFCU definately report the limit. I don't think that BOA does yet.

That's my understanding too. BOA does not report CL...

Re: Visa Signature Question

I have spent countless hours researching this topic. Here's what I found:

 

Bank of America does not report the credit limit, but it does the high balance. Also, Bank of America reports the card as a revolving account, so for FICO scoring purposes, the high balance will be treated as the credit limit for the account. 

 

The consequence of that? You'd have to put heavy charges on the card in a month so that the balance reported is as high as it can be, if you're interested in raising your credit score. If your loan application is under manual review, you can simply explain that your card is a Visa Signature, which implies that the credit limit is at least 5,000. This will work in your favor. 

 

 


myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
