Re: Bank of America Better Balance Rewards Users

FYI - noticed this nugget when I PC'ed - nice to have this option:


Your cash rewards will be automatically issued in the form of a statement credit to your card account, unless you indicate otherwise. You may choose instead to have your cash rewards deposited directly into a Bank of America® checking account or savings account or a Merrill Lynch Cash Management Account.

EQ - 848 (ATFCU FICO), 816 (Quizzle FAKO)
EX - 802 (CS FAKO)

Yeah! BoA has good features too!!


Just now got 140$ from my other card, I opened last month. (Statement cut yesterday)

It's nice to see that, when I click on the redeem, it shows a additional 50% bonus, This really a good offer..:smileytongue:

Re: Bank of America Better Balance Rewards Users

Can anyone confirm firsthand that $2.50/mo is enough to earn the quarterly bonus? I charge $26/mo on mine bc a rep reportedly said that the balance must exceed the minimum payment. Granted, this requirement isn't stated in the terms and conditions, but I wouldn't want to fight with BoA (again) over a technicality.
