Closing an account at BOA to then open one at Chase?
I was screwed over by BOA regarding a CC I opened. They practically promised that I could merge it with an existing CC I had. That was a lie and now I want to slowly rid myself of the venomous BOA. The card in question is a $2000 CL CC. To avoid the drop in credit score, I was thinking of opening a card at Chase with a CL > $2000 to offset the drop in overall credit availability. I've had plans to switch to Chase for a while but constantly postponed them due to the sensitive nature of closing accounts. How accurate is my logic here?
