bofa ??

Fairly new poster. Been lurkin for a while.. was recently approved for the ak airlines card. The platinum version.. "no 99 companion ticket" ... was wondering how long I should wait to ask to switch to the sig version with the companion flight. little background info.. super thin file..no credit cards for 10 plus years.. occasional auto loan always paid on time.. one unpaid collection from 12/10.. very small from local internet company . Refuse to pay it. Many new accounts from recent app spree.. chase freedom for 3500, nfl card for 2500, newegg for 2500, ak air for 2500 and last... most certainly least amex blue sky for 500... should I give it 6 months ??? A year ??

Re: bofa ??

Welcome what's the limit on the card?

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?

Sig cards in most cases must have a 5k limit

Re: bofa ??

I've had a AK visa for 20 years. Alaska Air miles are very valuable to me

and the card has been my main card for a lot of the time I've had it.

I'm not a real fan of BoA though. Any CLI or PC I've gotten over the years

has resulted in a HP. BoA also did some very funky stuff during the 2008

during the credit melt down including slashing CL on cards with perfect

histories. They haven't been tough on CLI increases for me though, except

for it is always a HP.

 

You'll need a $5k limit for a AK signature visa. Did you initially apply for

the platinum card, or was that what they offered when you applied? As

far as I've seen, Alaska Airlines really pushes the signature version of

the card so it makes me wonder if you aren't ready yet in their opinion for

a signature visa. 

.........1995............1994...............1992.............2013.............2014...........2014............CCT scores on 7/22/16

My credit is good now, but I aspire to die at a ripe old age of natural causes with the bill collectors beating on the door. photo anim_peep_zpsede717e4.gif
