yeah that's all I got too.   I went back online and talked with the chat person.    She said it's normal not to get a confirmation email about the secured card.   She said it takes up to 5 business days for them to debit your account and up to 15 days for you to receive the card.

It the Bank of America  partial secured card   the $99/$500.   You pay a $99 deposit and you get a $500 credit limit.    You have to apply for their platnium credit card ( It's a credit rebuilder), if you don't get that card, and if you qualify, they will send you a counter offer card, that's where I was accepted for the $99/$500 card.

Thank you. You have to have a account with them though. I don't have a account with BofA and don't want to with those ridicules fees.
 
Thanks though.

Re: Applying for a credit card

yeah there fees can get a bit nasty, but If you do a direct deposit they all get waived.  I enjoy BOA, alot of online resources and even have free budget online programs that are similiar to Quicken.

Do you know if some of the lender pull a certain credit bureau? I would think not all lenders pull experian, Equifax or Transunion.
 
I'm trying to get around from pulling experian.

Re: Applying for a credit card

hey everyone, look at the amex thread.  i was just approved  instantly for an amex gold skymiles card this weekend.  many others reading that thread applied and were approved with scores in the high 500s.  it is NOT a secured card and from what i understand pretty easy to get.
 
fyi i received a 1000 cl and my scores are 635 tu, 643 eq, 666 ex
 
good luck.
