  1. I actually did this exact same thing (apply for two BoA Alaska personal cards on the same day this week) even though I have two open already. I came across the site above through google and while I was approved for the first one, the other was pending. Unfortunately the reps consistently stated they do not make decisions and that is another department internally that cannot be contacted. I attempted to speak to 6 different individuals and kept getting the same message.

    Seeing this post prompted me to check the site again to find I was indeed approved for the other card, just an FYI to others though.

  2. Thanks for this helpful post. @Derek – Thanks for the data point!

    I applied for three AS cards last weekend. This is my first time applying for the AS card. Two personal – one approved, one still pending. One biz – approved. Hopefully, all three cards only cost 1 hard pull.

    Looking at Derek’s comment, it looks like you don’t need to close existing AS cards before applying for new ones. Right? (Holding 2 and still got another 2 approved. Wow!)

    I also wonder if there is a ‘max’ number of active AS cards before BoA says “you have too many AS open already so we cannot give you new ones”? Maybe 4 is the ideal number.


  3. Hello
    I am an international student who do not have a SSN.
    How can I check my credit card application status?
