BOA advice

Should I apply?  I got an offer for the platinum plus with a 0% apr for the first 12 billing cycles and no annual or balance transfer fee.  Any suggestions?  What credit score is required?

Re: BOA advice

If you are in the market to get a card, I say go for it.   It is one of their credit builders that is not a secured card.   Requirements are a little more relazed than their normal cards.   And if you get denied, odds are they will offer you the $99/$500 card.    I like BoA alot.  great customer service, great website for paying and such.

It's their semi-secured card.   You put down $99 and you get a $500 credit limit.

I got an alert from Experian that BOA did an inquiry so I will assume Experian.
