Card Overview

The only benefit from the Bank of America secured card is that once you submit the application and depending on your credit file Bank of America might even approve you for an unsecured credit card. The Bank Of America Secured card can mature to a non secured card after a periodic review (I’m not sure how long that takes).

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Limited credit ok - newcomers welcome
  • Bank of America will only approve you for 2 Bank of America cards within 2 months, 3 Bank of America cards within 12 months, and 4 Bank of America cards within 24 months
  • You cannot get approved for a Bank of America card if you have more than 5 Bank of America credit cards open
  • Bank of America will not approve you for their credit card if you opened more than 2 cards in the past 12 months, even if it’s from other issuers. Except if your a BOA bank account holder, then, you can get approved even if you opened up to 6 cards in 12 months
  • Bank Of America will usually pull your Experian credit report (if you freeze Experian then Bank Of America pull your TransUnion credit report)
  • You can check your application status here
  • If declined you can call 1 800 354 0401 to be reconsidered
