Well, actually, the money you send BOA earns interest for you, I believe. It's sitting in a savings account. Ain't that right, those of you with BOA secure cards?
 
If you PIF each month, you get charged no interest. If you leave a 1-9 percent balance on the card when the statement closes, thereby allowing the 1-9 percent util to report to the CRAs, and then PIF, you shouldn't pay any interest.
 
Try to recon your denials. There's a recon thread in the FRT.
