An O-6 from Jacksonville just called in to report that despite his best efforts with Bank of America. He was unable to get MLA protections to get his $75 annual fee waived. I logged into my account and did not see a new annual fee charge, but the charge back in Nov 2017 was reimbursed.
I suggest we proceed with caution here with any BoA products till more datapoints come in. As of opening his card in January 2018 he did all the paperwork I did but was unable to get the $75 back. Report back below for those out there that denied!
