I really feel that for those that are rebuilding their credit, you can't go wrong at all with the Bank of America Secured Card.
Here is the past year of activity for me:
January 1st 2016----applied for the card and approved with a $1000 Secured SL
June 2016----unsecured in 5 months!!! Soft pull to $3000 limit (Cash Rewards Card)
September 2016----got the "request credit line increase" link----submitted and got $7500
January 2017----card anniversary----got interest rate lowered to 17.45% and credit line increase to $15000
Bank of America can be tough to get in, but once you do and prove yourself they are very generous!!!! So happy with the growth on my card and will be a long-term customer!
Congratulations on earning a high credit limit with BOA, You've hit the big time now!
When the link appeared, and you requested was it a hard or soft pull? I have only had the card a few months, but still no link.
You absolutely just made my day...I received my secured card in November and was hoping that they may graduate mine before 12 months and than you gave your story...Super excited for you, CONGRATULATIONS those are beautiful numbers and im happy it happend so fast for you
But I do have a question, did you use it alot which is why they unsecured it so fast?
