Bank of America: $100/$75/$50 Back for Spending $30 at AT&T [Targeted]

The Offer

Some people are seeing an excellent deal showing in Bank Amerideals on their credit/debit cards.

  • Spend $15 two separate times at AT&T and get $75 back

ATT $75 offer

There are actually a few varieties of this offer:

  • Get $100 credit after making two $15 purchases
  • Get $75 credit after making two $15 purchases (the offer shown in this post)
  • Get $50 credit after making two $15 purchases

The Fine Print

  • Valid in-store or online at at&t.com or over the phone
  • Expires 10/17/16
  • Must make two separate transactions of $15 or more on the card associated with this offer by 12/1/16 (I think that means you have to save it by 10/17 and use it by 12/1)
  • The $75 cash back is earned within 30 days

Our Verdict

Pretty good timing with the impending iPhone 7 release, but the deal is great even if you no interest in anything at an AT&T store. Simply buy an accessory (charger, etc.) for $15 at an AT&T store or online at att.com (see this comment if you’re doing it online), repeat a second time, and get back $75. Net profit will be $45, plus some free accessories. Make sure to make the purchases at a corporate store, not an Authorized Retailer.

Someone mentions the idea of buying a $25 refill card from an AT&T store which would work for prepaid plans. Not sure if it’s possible to buy a gift card for a post-paid plan too.

A reader confirms that making $15 payments to your AT&T cellular bill or Uverse internet bill counts to trigger the credit.

Many people are confused as to how Bank Amerideals work for those with multiple cards in the same login. I haven’t ever used a Bank Amerideal (never any good deals for me), but my understanding is that the offer is linked to the login. You can use the offer on any card in the login, but you can not do the offer more than once (on different cards). It’s one offer total.

If you have several accounts with BoA, you can select which account the Bank Amerideal cash back posts to. So if you are like me and like 0% apr credit cards and have a checking account with BoA, you can use the credit card to earn the normal CC bonus plus the Bank Amerideal cash back, and have the cash back post directly to your checking. I found this useful the first time this deal came around as I wasn’t carrying a balance on my BoA credit card, so I managed to spend ~$40 on AT&T chargers and got the full $75 posted to my BoA checking.

Here’s the details on Bank Amerideals posting period, straight from their site:

“Earnings are typically credited to your chosen account within one month after the transaction posts.

You can always check status on the Earned tab, where earnings are marked as to be paid within a week after the transaction posts, and then paid within 10 days after receiving the cash back.”

On one of two accounts this time. Was great the 1st time around, although hard to find anything I wanted for close to $15, or even $30, using a split payment. Got a couple nice goodies in the end.

Daniel

So if I have two BOA cards, can I just split payments with those two cards $15 each and I’ll get the credit later?

Volidon

Don’t have split between cards. can just be 2 separate transactions on one card.

Last time (April), I made two separate $15 payments online, on my AT&T Uverse account (internet service) and I did receive the $75.

Voli
Voli

Do you recall the terms of the offer back in April? As this one mentions wireless products where as uverse isn’t.

Rich
Rich

The terms were the same. It said nothing about U-verse. I made the two $15 payments first, but wasn’t sure they would trigger the bonus, so I intended to buy a couple of small things at the AT&T store. But before I could get to a store and buy something, the bonus had already posted.

Voli

Sweet, waiting for my two charges to post and will see if U-verse works assuming they don’t reverse it later on.

I got this offer a few months ago. I bought two $15 USB cables in separate transactions, and I got the cashback. I had to call BoA to confirm, since the offer disappeared from my account after making the purchases.

Mark O
Mark O

How long after it disappeared did you get the credit? Mine did the same thing this week after doing the charges last week.

JoJo

be careful with this deal, My GF and me have received this offer at Aug, I made two transaction at ATT for monthly payment. BOA never consider I used the offer and the offer in my GF’s account simply disappear.

Matt
Matt

This happened to me. I called BoA and they confirmed the offer was redeemed. CB posted next statement.

Miz
Miz

That’s how it works. After you redeem the offer, it disappears as if it never existed (it doesn’t even show up as redeemed), but then the cashback will show up after a few weeks, as pending, and then after a few weeks more the cashback will post.

Howard
Howard

Thanks for letting us know this. I noticed today that the same thing happened to me — the offer disappeared after I fulfilled the conditions — and BofA chat wasn’t available.

One thing to note is that it is 1 offer per account/person. IT is not 1 per card, so if you have multiple BoA cards, it won’t stack. Found that out the hard way last time.

Prasanna

I guess you could buy 2 AT&T gift cards in the stores. But the lowest denomination is $25.

I got $100 back for two $15 charges on my AS personal. Thanks! Would have never paid attention to it otherwise.

Sh!t, my offer expired Sept.1

Be careful when ordering multiple products online. I had one transaction with one item about $16, then another transaction with two items that added to more than $15. AT&T (or BofA) split the latter per item and I ended up with 3 transactions ($16, $9, $6) and BofA refused to honor the deal because I didn’t meet the requirements.

Just a heads up that such shadiness is very possible!

I see same offer with $100 reward

Offer expires 9/1/2016. Offer valid one time only. Must make two separate transactions with AT&T on wireless products or services of at least $15.00 on the card associated with this offer by 10/16/2016. Your $75 cash back is earned within 30 days after making your second transaction. See details on AT&T’s offers. Taxes, fees, other charges & restrictions may apply.

How do I know I successfully redeemed that offer? I made two purchases already but got no notification at all?

Ted

Wait patiently and it will show up. Mine did after 15 days.

A few seconds after I made the second $15 purchase and making sure that it showed up on my BoA activity, I checked the Cash Back Deals section again and noticed that the AT&T offer had changed from ‘Activated’ to ‘Processing’ (from a green tick mark to a gray ‘refresh’ symbol).

Jay
Jay

Just noticed that BoA also sent me an email w/ subject “BankAmeriDeals® Processing” with the following content:
“BankAmeriDeals®
Good news! We’re processing your cash back
deal.

We’re processing your cash back deal for AT&T.”

ValueTravelerOZ

My offer is $50 for AT&T service….nothing about buying products. BOOOO.

Jason

Login and see $75 offer, just done $15 & $16 with my debit card. Will advise once $75 posted.

Jason
Jason

Received emails saying I’ve earned cash back from ATT. Login and found the pending $75. So it’s almost confirmed. Takes 20 days to post.

Eric

I have a $50 offer, however it doesn’t say $15 payment in the offer detail. I tried last time to pay two $15, and it didn’t work.

Chris

Made 2 separate orders for Bluetooth Speakers, will let you know when I get the cash back in my account.

Dave

No offer for me 🙁

Be careful, some merchants may combine charges that are made on the same day. Not sure about ATT. So doing two $15 charges one after the other may end up on your bill as one $30 charge. Then you would need to make another $15 charge at some point. I’ve done this offer twice, once on my wife’s account and once on mine. Waited a couple days before doing the 2nd charges and the rebate eventually came. On a sidenote, I sell on Amazon and found items that I could make a slight profit on, sold them and came out even further ahead.

James

I made two payments on my bill and received the cash-back. Easy money

Just did the $75 deal. I would recommend the following:

Buy 2 Boom Swimmer Jr. speakers in 2 different transactions. They are on sale for $20. On amazon they go for around $30, even figuring the amazon seller fees and shipping I expect to net around $20 each for the speakers.

Thanks Chuck for this post. I’d never heard of Amerideals before, even though I’ve been a Bank of America CC customer for two decades. On my current BA/Amtrak card, I just logged on, then searched for it, then “signed up” for deals (I think), then went to a tab I’d never checked before — “special offers & deals” — and there it is. (though buried two levels down) Bank of America cc’s have long underwhelmed me — and even the website and payments interface are miserable. Yet this gives me some pause to give a second look.

I ended up going to the local store where they have IPhone chargers on sale for $10. I bought 4 in two separate transactions

I only had the deal with $50 when you order a new line of service. Boo.

My husband and I have a joint BoA account with 2 separate debit cards and account logins. Any idea if we could get the deal twice on one account?

Zheng

I have two BOA credit cards and I did two transactions using each of them. Will I get the cash back? The cashback deal of att in my account is in “processing” status. Not sure it means only one transaction is qualified or both.

You only get 1. BoA offers are limit 1 per person, not per card.

I tried and it didn’t work. BoA sucks. Don’t waste your money.

I made two purchases totaling $35 for AT&T on 9/13 (two iphone cases) and received a pending cash back amount of $75 on 9/27 to be paid out at end of October. This works!

Chris
Chris

Paid 2x $15 on AT&T U-verse internet bill on 9/12. Didn’t see anything on the website indicating that I qualified for the offer.

When I checked on it later, the offer was gone and I saw it under the expired tab. I didn’t see any indication that it was processing.

Pretty much gave up on the offer until I received an email on 10/3 saying I will be receiving cash back!

I actually did this for both me and my wife. So, I’m expecting $150 in cash back total at the end of October!

Smitty

The $75 shows up on my account and I went ahead and made the purchases.

Digging into the deals it says these select cards wont count:

“ATM-only cards
Credit Purchasing Card (P-Card), Travel/Corporate Card, Fleet Card
Prepaid Payroll & Incentive Card
All healthcare account products – HSA/FSA Health Reimbursement/Flexible Spending
HELOC – Home Equity Line of Credit accounts
Merrill Lynch CMA deferred debit cards
AAA credit cards

I used a AAA card. I will report back if I get the cash back or not.

I used a BoA Major League Baseball card to pay my AT&T U-Verse Internet bill (which technically doesn’t meet the terms of the deal since it’s supposed to only be for AT&T Wireless). I made two payments for different amounts (both over $15) and the payments were made on different days in mid-September. I received the $75 credit this week.

JASON

9/12 $15 using debit card
9/12 $16 using debit card
10/19 $75 posted into checking

Can ANYONE confirm that they did it on more than one card? when I go to preferences, it shows 3 of my accounts eligible. Can I do this on all three of them or is it only allowed for one card?

XP1

You can use anyone of your 3 cards, but you are limit 1 offer per person.

Making Wireless bill payment online doesn’t count anymore. An agent confirmed it today as I should buy something to get the bonus.

Will try it in a corporate store and update.
