I applied for my BoA card at the branch, but only because I couldn't put an APO address in the online application. Even at the branch, however, they made me use a stateside address since they won't mail to APO. Then the branch rep approved me for the wrong card and I had to do a product change (over the phone while sitting in front of the branch rep at her desk). If I had to do it again, I would surely just do it online and give a stateside address.

My gf has boa checking account so we are going to see if she can get a cc thru them. First we are going to talk to customer service st branch. What should we ask? Thanks
If she is a student, I would suggest to go for one of their student cards (typically easier to get). If not, depending on her accounts with BOA, there is the basic BankAmericard or their cash back card. A branch manager could look at her account status and give a general idea on which card she might be able to apply for. She may even have to do a secured card. Either way, just ask to speak to someone about opening up a credit card and someone should be able to assist you. She could also apply online if she has online banking. But, speaking to someone in person could probably point her in the right direction.

Cough. Please don't randomly apply for cards unless you think you have good chance to get. As such can you tell us about her credit profile and score.
Based on a previous thread, she has nothing what-so-ever on her credit report.

She keeps getting letters thru mail saying you have been pre approved for a,student cc
But is she a student? She will need to provide some form of edvidence (school information) she is a student somewhere to get the card. If she is, and she has been pre-approved, I would say that is a good place to start.

@jd5189 im not sure about that. I applied for their student plat in 09 when i was 18 and didnt need to show anything saying i was a student.
The online application for the student card asks for a plethora of student information. So, it looks like student verification is necessary in this case.
