surprise CLI on existing acct after app/approval for new acct :)

i have had a BofA Gold Visa since mid- 2008.  My CL was $7900 after the first few months. Never asked for a CLI. Always PIF with exception of 3 months during this past summer when I paid off $3000+ over a 3 month period.

 

On 9/24 I app'd and was approved for BofA BankAmericard Cashrewards Visa Signature (CLI $10,000 w/ $100 CB after $500 in purchases duirng first 90 days).

 

When I went to BofA site this morning to pay my Gold Visa, I was pleasantly surprised to see a $1500 CLI on that acct to CL of $9,400 !!

(I checked and only have the one HP on EX for the new app)

 

:smileyvery-happy: 

 


BofA visa $9.4k ... BofA Cash Rewards visa sig $10k ... Cap 1 Venture1 visa sig $10k ...

oh :smileyhappy:

that's the only reason i applied for the Cashrewards card, after loggin onto BofA site and seeing that offer (along with the cashrewards, especially 3% for gas.... knowing that as of October, Chase Freedom's 5% gas category was gone for at this quarter.)
