Thanks for clearing it up for me. I wonder why BoA has this card as some top secret operation.


Me, too. You can't find any information regarding it online (except here).

BOA denied me for a secured card, I even opted to fund the account with
$1000.00 dolalrs



Do you belong to a bank or credit union? Wells Fargo has secured cc also citi has a secured cc. If you belong to a cu, go to them and discuss the possibilty of opening a secured cc. Most cu's are a bit more lenient (sp?) than banks. One reason is that cu's haven't run into the financial mess that a lot of banks have. The fact that they are member owned usually means they are more willing to work with you as an individual.

That is why it is best to stay away from these types of cards. If no one else will accept you (that does not have the rediculous fees) then I would go to my local bank and get a secured card. Bofa has a cool secured card and so does cap1, they both will (in return) reverse your card over to an unsecured within 6 months to a year. It better to put money in your own pot than starting off in the hole.

Yoyo, close your First Premier accounts after you're able to obtain better cards. Don't let them talk you into keeping them by telling you that helped you build credit and closing it will hurt your scores. Keeping your accounts open will hurt your pockets before it hurts your scores. :laugh:

Doesn't First Premier pull a hard inquiry on your report every time you ask them for a CLI? It's not worth it for a $50 CLI.


No hard inquiry and I got a $150 cli. I'm not going to complain as I'm not prime material yet. With the economy the way it is, I'm just going to sit for a bit. no apps until things settle down in the banking world.:scared:

No, they'll do use the usual excuse where they help you build your credit by reporting to all 3 bureaus. :laugh:

How long have you had the card for? Has it been longer than one year? If so, close them. Don't worry about losing points because they're not worth all those fees. You will gain those points back as long as you are making your payments on time on your other cards.
