Sorry if this tip was either previously posted or if I misunderstood what I was told, which commonly occurs with me.
BofA told me today that I may one day receive a pre-approval offer from BofA if I enroll online at the following website:
You specifically do not log into your BofA account to sign up to get these pre-approval offers.
I am laser-focused on getting a legacy bank card, and am seriously considering a secured bank card from WF, Citi, or BofA after having opened checking accounts with them. Previous calls with a BofA CSR have lured me into applying for a BofA CC only to be denied. Perhaps this webiste will result in a pre-approved email one day in 2021.
The only way to get a true preapproval from BoA for a credit card is for an existing customer to be extended one through the Activity Center. Other solicitations are variations of invitations-to-apply.
BTW that site you linked to is used to help give you some control over what information BoA can collect and what information they can share.
I don't see any correlation implied that signing up will lead to preapprovals, only boilerplate commentary that they may use the information collected to assist in among other things processing applications. The only preapproval commentary I see is specific to mortgages. Or, did I miss something?
Thank you for the insight!! I tend to hear what I want to hear to have me help myself get approved for a bank card. I think you're spot on with your assessment, @the_old_curmudgeon, and I'll begin checking the BofA Activity Center in frequent intervals. It seems as though I'll have to wait until January 2022 before I can hope to get a pre-approval offer from one of the big banks. Thank you again for your insght.
emails are marketing, even if there is a response code.
