rob72830's review: Callout Comment Finally got my BofA card today. It has been 40 days to the day I took my application to the local BofA branch to send it in. Not sure of my scores then but my PFICO was 646. I was approved for this card after being declined for a regular unsecured Platinum Visa from them. I just wish I could add money to my account to increase the credit line.

Remarks I'm so happy for you. Congrads!! I guess it's the 99/500 and they won't let you add money because it's just as good as a unsecured card. Wow...40days... I know it was worth the wait. Is it a handsome card? Or the reg/Bofa logo?

BofA 99/500 Card Arrived Today User Icon on 2008-07-28

Remarks Yoyo, thank you. It is very nice and shiny and looks just like the regular unsecured platinum Visa. Yeah, its the 99/500 card. I am glad I went on ahead and got this card even though I had to get a denial and 2 hard inquiries to get it. If what people tell me is true, then this will open the door to other great cards. If you are thinking about applying, I say go for it. : )

Remarks Cireone, I applied for the regular unsecured Platinum Visa and was denied but then was offered the partially secured card. Thats how you apply for the 99/500 card. You can't outright apply for the 99/500 card. Also thanks everyone who encouraged me to hang in there. I believe this card and me are going places.
