Bank of America, New Limits for Credit Card Applications – Miles to Memories
I knew something was going on at Bank of America, given recent denials for both myself and my wife. But it is nice to know that there is a method to their madness. Guess we won’t be applying for any BofA cards for a while. I’m on track to drop under 5/24, so Chase will be the new focus.
