Bank of America Credit Card

I know the MBNA people are not satisfied with the switch to Bank of America. But I don't think I have seen mention by regular BofA credit card holders about this problem: The online banking site no longer
offers the ability to download recent transactions. I can only download what was there as of the last statement date.
Does anyone know anything about this?
Does anyone care to recommend credit cards that will give a better online banking service?
Thanks

Now that I have my download working for Nations Bank, let me try my MBNA Card for lunch tomorrow and see what happens.

I've noticed the same thing - the new system is absolutely awful.
My Citibank card handles automatic downloads pretty well.

I had two MBNA cards that were swithced to BoA. I had trouble getting Quicken 2007's One Step Update (Express WebConnect) to work after the BoA switch. I ended up calling BoA and the explaination I got was:
THere are two types of BoA customers: 1) Credit Card Only 2) Banking (potentially with one or more Credit Cards).
According to the Quicken Specialist at BoA, I was in the first category and as such, I can only use WebConnect (No Express WebConnect) and I can only download statements at the end of each cycle.
If I open a checking account or a savings account I then get moved into the second category. By being in the second category, I can download transactions daily, even for my credit cards.
The rep said that it has to do with different Governement Regulations that apply to "Banks" and that apply to "Credit Card Companies".

?????? I have two credit cards with no ties to a bank, and have no problems downloading the latest transactions.

I'd say you got a load of baloney from the BofA person. I have a checking account, money market account, CD and credit card with BofA, and since their recent "upgrade" of the credit card web site, I can't express download daily transactions in Quicken 2007 Premier anymore. I can log on to the website with IE7 and "see" them, but Quicken can't download them except at the end of a statement cycle.

Hello, John! You wrote on Sun, 19 Nov 2006 22:28:57 GMT:
While I only have a credit card account with BofA, their comment about different rules applying is also hogwash. I have a Discover and a Chase Visa and have no problem getting express downloads of daily transactions for those credit card only accounts. I'm using 2004 Deluxe BTW.

Discover card is one. But it has limited access in stores. I like Citibank as well. American Express also downloads on a day-to-day basis.
Bank of America, Sears Card, and a number of others use end of statement downloads.
Bank of America is particularly nasty. Gonna dump the business and personal cards in that bank ASAP.

Have been watching folks comment on month-end download from BoA. I was a long-time MBNA card user and could never download except when new statement appeared. As such, don't find much to mutter about with BoA.
Of course, if other MBNA users were able in past to download daily, then I may have been missing out on a good thing.

I'm with Mr. Jay - same experience exactly. And to add to that - BofA is not unique in that; CapitalOne comes to mind as doing same thing.

Yes, I was able to download daily until the recent "enhancement" of the BOA credit card web page.
