Merrill+ Still Available Via Phone With Bonus
If you didn’t listen to us earlier and sign up for the Merrill+ card when the bonus was 50,000 points online (it was one of our top credit card offers when available), then you might still have a chance to get the card and the bonus. Reddit user aoechamp applied by phone (866-751-1257) and was told that the offer was 50,000 points after $3,000 in spend (the previous online offer).
They received their bonus, but only 25,000 points instead of 50,000 points. Apparently the offer has changed to require $2,500 in spend for 25,000 points rather than the $3,000 spend required for 50,000 points. Other reddit users that applied recently have also been told that they are enrolled in the 50,000 point bonus.
I suspect if you apply by phone and are told that you’ll receive 50,000 points you’d be able to get that offer by making a complaint. As always, whenever you make a phone call make sure you get a reference number for that call and write down exactly what you were told.
