I would try to call and get the limit back.  I've read stories on here where others have done that with BOA and it worked, although every situation is different.

Exactly.  It doesn't hurt to call. 

 

It is kind of slimy to approve an application and then reduce another card by an equal amount.  They should have asked you first, in my opinion.

Slimy?? All CCC's are slime balls!  Either you play the game or you don't.

This certainly isn't the first post about BofA doing this.

 

They just take the same slice of pie and cut it smaller for multiple accounts, rather than adding another slice.

 

I agree, they should most certainly tell you that this is what would happen, and ask if you agree.
