WOW! BoA CLI

I just logged in to do my daily AA paranoia check of all my accounts, and had to do a double-take. I got a 3k CLI from BoA to hit 10k! UNSOLICITED! This credit gardening is really starting to pay off!

 

So, here's the rundown for the interested:

 

  • On average I charge 2 to 3k per month and PIF. I NEVER carry a balance.
  • I use the card a LOT- almost daily.
  • It's my 'every day' card that I use for gas, groceries, cell phone, insurance, clothes, etc...
  • I make two payments per month (one just before the due date to guarantee no finance charges for the next month & one just before the statement close date to get a zero balance to report)
  • I have checking, savings, and CD accounts with BoA
  • My FICO scores are hanging steady in the low-to-mid 700s

Re: WOW! BoA CLI

My last unsolicited CLI was in January, right around the annual anniversary for getting that card.

I just hit the CLI button on the BOA homepage.  It went from 2.5k to 5k.  It was a soft pull as well.  Congrats on getting to 5 figures also.

I also make that 1st payment just in case I forget or can't make the 2nd one.
