You know that credit limit isn't determined by Visa or MC right?

You know that credit limit isn't determined by Visa or MC right?Of course. I am just saying that the BOA AMEX line they gave me is 1/2 of what I normally get from any other card (whether it is VISA, MC, or AMEX).

None of the links works anymore. Dead?

Have anybody called BOA and confirmed that they'll get $100.00?
I called couple of days ago & was told by couple of the reps. that they couldn't find find this offer & I used that link to apply.
Than I e-mailed them & again was told that the only offer is $25.00 CR & not a $100!!
I e-mailed them a link that I used to apply & copied the conditions ( because the offer is no longer there, but I printed that at the time of application )among with some questions about balance transfer.
That was about 27 hours ago & nothing happened, but they promise to reply within 12 hours!!

I tryed a couple different computers, get error that credit card is not available anymore?? Dead ?

I just received my card in the mail after a deferred response. I'm holding with customer service to confirm the statement credit and there seems to be no easy discovery by the customer service. Does anyone have a screenshot of the original offer or has anyone had success in confirming this with customer service?

EDIT: I'm told I will receive "a $50 or $75 statement credit within 8-12 weeks upon activation of the card." Anyone else have any luck?

i need a screen shot copy to if anyone has one

Wow! $ 50 or $ 75.
I was only offered $25 and after couple of e-mails $50.

All I have is the following:
Promo code FAB49I.
This is the link I used to apply, which is not working anymore

https://wwwn.applyonlinenow.com/USCCapp?CtI/entry?sc=FAB49I.

And I have a partial printout of that offer, which included the following:

“Receive a $100 Statement Credit after qualifying transaction(s) §§= ”

“§§ To qualify for this offer, your new account must be used to make = any
purchase, balance transfer or cash advance transaction totaling $25
excluding any transaction fees, if applicable within 45 days of the
account open date.”

Good luck!
Use it well and post the results, please!

If your account has balances with different APRs, payments are applied to the balance with the lowest APR before any payments are applied to balances with higher APRs. This means that balances with higher APRs are not reduced until balances with lower APRs have been paid off.

When a Promotional Period ends, the Standard (non-introductory) APR is applied to new and outstanding balances (consisting of Balance Transfers, non online Direct Deposits, and Check Cash Advances). If your payment is late or the account balance is over the credit limit, either the Standard APR or the Default APR will be applied to those balances as of the first day of the billing cycle in which the payment was late or the balance exceeded the credit limit.

The 0% APR does not apply to Purchases.
3 The number of days between your statement Closing Date and your Payment Due Date (the grace period) may vary from one Billing Cycle to another.
4 We include Transaction Fees when computing finance charges. Incurring Fees results in an APR exceeding 0% for the billing statement on which Fees appear. The Daily Periodic Rate (DPR) will remain 0% as disclosed.
American Express (1) converts charges made in foreign currencies to U.S. dollars using a rate selected on the business day prior to the day on which the charges are processed by American Express and (2) applies a 1% commission to the converted amount. See the Credit Card Agreement for details.

None of these links are working for me (??)

And when I look up the AMEX cards on BofA's website, they only have a $50 bonus.

Is this dead or am I missing something?

thank you for the terms

Thanks for posting the terms! I will call and read the wording to them and demand an e-mail review of the writing if they still do not honor the offer terms.

I think it's still early to call. They usually know nothing and it's like talking to wall. I will call 12 weeks later if I won't get the money and ask to connect to manager. He knows what to to) I did that last time.

Why is everybody freaking out already? Per the terms of the deal it can take 8-12 weeks after the qualifying purchase for the $100 credit to post. Why not wait those 8-12 weeks and then raise the issue? More than likely the bonus will automatically appear.

That's like not confirming reservations you have made. If you just assume since it has told you things are okay at the beginning of your transaction, you're likely to hit a wall when it comes time. These companies fall through on these offers all the time, so I'd rather take a few minutes to defend my side than wait and end up with nothing. I've called to confirm other offers and did not end up with problems like this (five minute hold time to research the offer). That is uncalled for.

I don't think it's like that at all. Unlike reservations, I didn't commit any resources to this offer, and if they're tardy it doesn't really matter, free money is still free money. My feeling is, on the chance they don't honor their word later on, nothing I can say now will make them do differently. And any leverage I have over them now I will still have anyway if I wait to see if things work out on their own. The only difference between me making a fuss now and me making the same fuss later is that if I wait till later I might not have to make a fuss at all. Saves me one fuss. I'm not really assuming it will work out, it's just that whether it works out or not doesn't much depend on whether I babysit the situation.

I see these conversations on every credit card, checking account bonus etc. I have never not recieved the bonus. I have a print out of the offer. These conversations are a waste of time.

I concur!!

I didn't realize this was going to become the most complex psychological exercise in becoming the best person by working the least in obtaining an offer. As stated, I too agree that it is time to terminate allegations and assumptions concerning the offer. It looks to now be most appropriate to only post if/when you have received statement credit.

Not really. Its more like ordering food and being told it will be delivered within 30 minutes, then calling back after 10 minutes and wondering where your pizza is.

dang it BOA : where are my cards???

Original cards never received? ( accounts appear online $0.00 bal.)

still waiting on replacement cards ordered 01/07/08

WTF , over ?

** AMMENDED *** 01/19/08 .... recv'd both replacement cards 2day.

Glitch99 said: Not really. Its more like ordering food and being told it will be delivered within 30 minutes, then calling back after 10 minutes and wondering where your pizza is.

Not really. I never asked where my credit is. It's more like ordering food, then remembering how much trouble you've had with this company delivering exactly what you ordered, and you still refuse to pass up a great deal, so before it's too late you call back to confirm they heard your order correctly. But thanks for keeping the rant going, I'm glad we weren't finished telling everyone how stupid they are for worrying for five minutes over a potential $100.

Upon objective observation of your argument, I'm going to have to respectfully go with the pizza analogy.

damnit I can't believe this is dead

FYI-
I got a credit posted 2 days ago (just noticed), but it's only for $50. After reading the CSR the terms from this thread (thanks, waka), she said the "8-12 weeks" likely means there will be 2 installments of $50, and if I don't get another one next cycle I should call and reference today's call.

I received my $100 bonus on 01/15/2008. I opened the account on 12/31/2007. No problems whatsoever. Thanks BOFA and Fat wallet.

I opened my account back in late December as well, but no bonus yet. However, I did not make my $25 purchase until Jan 7, 2008. My next statement cycles Feb 11. I'm hoping for the full $100 then...

What's the best way to collect this $100 besides making purchases totaling $100?

Same here, no bonus for me or my wife yet. As far as the $100, I've had success in asking that a credit balance on a different BOA card be transferred to my BOA checking account. The CSR told me that I couldn't have done it myself online, or else I would have incurred cash advance fees, but they could do it on their end without any problem. Took about 5 business days. I plan to do the same with this card once the $100 credit posts.

Awesome, thanks for the tip!

I applied for and was approved on December 24. Made two purchases ($18 + $13) on January 4, 2008, and still have not received the bonus. Do I have to make a purchase that is over $25, or can two purchases that sum to over $25 count as the same thing?

My acct cycles on the 24th I hope to see it on the 25 th after they process tonight.

I opened my account on Dec 27.

I bought 4 new tires at Costco on 1/17, the bonus has not showed up yet. I will post back when it does.

i've got the first statement but none signup bonus has shown up. dunno if i should ask them

agedgarlic said: i've got the first statement but none signup bonus has shown up. dunno if i should ask them

Got my first statement today and the $100 credit to the account.

Got $100 credit today Jan 26th, my qualifying transaction posted on Jan 7th. My statement date was a few days ago, Jan 23rd I think.

Looks like I got my pizza. posted 01/25/2008 $100 STMT CREDIT PR

It wasn't here in 10 minutes though, and I'm pissed.
