This is a discussion on BOA - CS Rep Confirms Can't Use Card for Guns or Ammo within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Originally Posted by suntzu Just like the threads last week about the Brady Bunch and some bogus ads that they supposedly did.

He doesn't know what he's agreeing to when he originally answers affirmatively to the "policy". Half those people are culturally conditioned to respond like that, not as an answer to the question, but as an affirmation that they understand you (even when they don't understand you). After that initial, knee jerk, affirmative, he spends the rest of the time "looking up" an answer and he never comes up with one. He apologized for not having any information and passes her concerns along, which I'm sure means nothing since it's fairly apparent that he doesn't even get what she's talking about.
Even if "true", the whole thing is irrelevant.

You don't need to cancel your BOA card, just stop using it. Get a card from a different bank and use it but do not cancel your BOA card. Look up how cancelling a credit card can effect your credit rating. Let's say someone has a $10,000 credit limit on their credit card. Cancelling that card effectively lowers your creditworthiness by $10,000 in the eyes of the three credit rating agencies. It may not seem like much, but to some people that can be a huge impact on their credit status.
BOA only benefits when one of their cards is used. If people just stop using BOA cards, their revenue will drop and THAT will be noticed.
