So as part of my spree that ended on 9/11, I tried for a BoA Cash Rewards and I got my letter. Reasons for denial:
One or more of your accounts has been included in a bankruptcy or we've received notification of your intent to file for bankruptcy
Limited deposit and/or investment balances with us and/or our affiliates
The second reason is an interesting one. BoA had mailed me an offer to open a checking account with them and get $300 with direct deposit but it required me going in to a branch so I never did it. I wonder if banking with them gets you off the blacklist? I won't switch to them just to try to get a credit card that I won't use, I am just curious if that's an avenue that works since they specifically list it on the letter.
They were included in my Chapter 7 back in 2010 for less than $5K (I don't remember the exact amount but that card had a $6500 limit and I never maxed any of my cards) and I figured I was still on the blacklist but while I was already out of the garden, I burned an HP to make sure.
I don't really have plans to give BoA my business long term. I would churn that $200 bonus and then cut the card. BoA and their pre-CARD shenanigans were the driving force behind my BK to begin with and I have a long memory too. It's more curiosity and in the interest of seeing DPs that I am curious about the deposit relationship and the blacklist.
Having the depository relationship won't necessarily be a 'wild card' to be off the blacklist, unfortunately. There's been some previous threads on similar outcomes. By the same token, some who have IIB have been able to get a secured or unsecured CC through them. So, it sounds like they'll likely hold that blacklist "memory" on you for sometime.
My one "baddie" is with BofA. I didn't get a charge-off, but had late payments on one card and settled for less than the full amount. It was not a small sum that was forgiven, either.
My family has had a relationship with BofA going way back and I still have a long, LONG-standing checking account with them. A family member was an employee for many years, too. I've since moved on to Unify CU and NFCU for most of my banking needs, but I guess I'm a tiny bit sentimental about BofA.
I wonder how long it would take to be approved for a card again. Years, I assume.
