BofA Cash Rewards + Merrill Edge=SCORE!

I was going back to the garden after Costco when my dad told me about the extra cash back rewards with combined balances between Merrill Edge and BofA accounts. It's an extra 75% on rewards and a 100 free trades each month. I never get prequals on BofA when I login to my banking, but I finally got one today!

 

$4,000 instant! I've been getting better SLs now than I used to so hopefully that means my profile is looking better. Time to trim the fat and garden for a year after this!

Any idea on how BofA cards grow? I'm also thinking of BT away from a card that the 0% is almost over. Are they finicky?

Congrats on your CashRewards card.  I was just recently approved for this card and it's been getting a workout.  Hopefully in due time they'll give me a bump because I'm not down for this constantly making payment thing just to make the card useful.  I'll play the game for now...but not for long...

Congrats! I love BoA and they grow very nicely if you treat it will and use heavily.

Thank you! I also think it's awesome that they offer a secured version of this card. It graduates and boom, you already have a quality card. I know people have their complaints about BofA, but that's kind of an amazing product.
