patrick12's review: Callout Comment I applied for this card yesterday because I was ready to graduate to a prime card, any way, I filled out my application and wanted to secure the card with $300.00, and hit the submit button, after about 30 seconds is says Congratulations! Your application has been received! So I checked my email later in the day to only find out that I had been declined! I called them and wanted to ask some questions about why I was denied and the gentlemen I spoke with was short with me on the phone and said that they would be mailing me a letter with the reasons! Whatever! Oh and by the way they pulled my Experian File, don't know what my score was. Just though I would share this information.

Remarks I got approved, had them take money out my account to hurry the processed... Had a BK on my credit... If you have one... Forget Bank of America

Remarks Feel your pain and frustration. Originally I applied for a BofA Platinum Visa and was denied but they countered with a"secured card".

Remarks My spouse has a Visa with Bank of America for more than 5 years with credit line was $12,000 - she went oversea and forgot to paid just 1 bill (missed once) - Bank of America decreased her credit line down to $1,200 - next following year (2009), they did it again and now she has only $700 credit line - I think she needs to think about to keep or closed this one and looks for other credit cards.

Remarks Sorry BofA denied you, have you checked your experian score? if that is in fact why you were denied, maybe some other cocka-mamey reason.

National City has a secured Visa, and as another poster pointed out, Orchard Bank is decent as well.

Hope someone let you in the door.
