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

The Offer

Some people are seeing an awesome deal showing in Bank Amerideals on their Bank of America credit/debit card.

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

There’s another offer that others are seeing to get a bonus for adding a line with AT&T.

  • Add a smartphone, tablet or other new line of eligible wireless service & earn $50 cash back with AT&T

There are other variations of these offers as well.

The Fine Print

  • Valid in-store or online at at&t.com
  • Expires 5/20/16
  • Must make two separate transactions of $15 or more on the card associated with this offer
  • The $75 cash back is earned within 30 days

Our Verdict

The $75 deal is great even if you no interest in anything at an AT&T store. Simply buy any random stuff (chargers, etc.) for $15, repeat a second time, and get back $75. Net profit will be $45. For AT&T customers, it’s literally free money since you can easily pay your wireless bill online with your BofA credit card, repeat a second time, and get back $75. (Make one payment for $15 and the second for $15.01 if you’re doing it on the same day.)

The $50-$100 bonus for adding a line is nice if you use AT&T and want to add a line or if you wanted to signup for a new plan with AT&T, e.g. if you just got the AT&T Access More card. Be sure to go through Topcashback or Ebates for an additional $10 when adding a line or $100-$150 when signup up for a new line of service.

Most people don’t check their Amerideals, and it may be worth checking now to see if you have these offers.

Wondering if this will work on cricket….it shows on the bill as “AT&T mobility”

Not sure but you may be able to couple this through Retailmenot’s promotion of spending $30 on select accessories and then getting a $10 mail in rebate when you purchase online and pick up in store

If I have multiple BofA credit cards, how do I know on which card this deal is there ?

These Amerideals don’t tie to a given card, you activate it and can use them on any credit or debit card.

Logan

i just called BoA for some clarification on this offer since I have a debit card (checking) and two credit cards.

They told me the offer was specific to the debit card and I would have to use debit card to get the offer.
You might call and make sure which offer yours was under just to make sure you get the cash back.

Mine reads “Earn $100 cash back when you make two transactions with AT&T using your eligible debit or credit card. “

I don’t have a BOA checking account nor a debit card. I only have a credit card with them but still got the targeted offer. So the phone rep prolly gives you the wrong info.

My experience with Bank America deals is that they are not tied to any one card. Once you activate them they will be applied to your purchase whether you use your debit or credit card.

Tim

i saw mine for $100.
i have a cash rewards and a debit card.

You can use any debit/credit card. I got $50.

I’m seeing this on my Regions Bank checking account (I have B of A debit/credit cards as well but the offer isn’t showing there). So I think it’s an offer that could possibly show up under any bank that uses the “cashback rewards” program.

VJ

I dont see it on my account 🙁

Ben

Aww no good offer for me, have the $50 new line. Assuming there’s too many fees and no monthly plan low enough to make it worthwhile to activate an old phone for a month and then cancel.

Lucy

Which account will the $75 credit to? If I use BBR, will it credit to BBR and the balance will be below 0? I also have checking account with them.

You can set what account to deposit these deals to.

For BankAmericard deals, you can login to your BofA account, go to the “Special Deals and Offers” tab at the top and click on “Cash back deals” in the dropdown. That gets you to your BankAmericard available offers by default. A few tabs to the right of “Available” is “Preferences”. At the bottom of the preferences page you’ll see a list of cards eligible for the BankAmericard deals.
Also on this page, you can set the destination of your cash back as a statement credit to a particular card or a deposit into a BofA checking or savings account.

M. Smith
M. Smith

Thanks for the tip. Wonder if crediting to your checking/savings gets the 10% reward bonus like the “cash rewards” do.

Wyle
Wyle

Unfortunately, no. The BankAmericard deals just give straight up 1x cash back.

Carlos
Carlos

How do you figure???
Any rewards going into you BOA bank acct are credited at a higher rate.
Thats my understanding.

Wyle
Wyle

The BankAmeriDeals are different than the cash back rewards from various BofA credit cards (and they can stack). In my experience, cash back REWARDS accumulate, are associated with a specific card and require you to redeem (often with the 10% bonus for redeeming into a BofA account).
The cash back from BankAmeriDeals individual offers that you must pre-select and are triggered by use of an eligible card, but aren’t tied to that card, The cash back is automatically credited to the account you specify about 1-2 months after the qualifying purchase as a 1x credit.
I’ve been dumping my BankAmeriDeal cash back into my BofA savings for 3 years now.

Thank you for posting this Wyle

Huge Kudos to Chuck for posting this and those who read the fine print and brought it to DoC’s attention. When I saw the deal the short verbiage reads, “Click here to earn $75 cash back when you switch to AT&T!”
Big difference between switching and “making two separate transactions of $15 or more”.

I’m wondering how/if they can track whether a transaction actually involves “wireless products or services” or just random stuff purchased??

Ben
Ben

Will this work for uverse payments or just wireless?

Carlos

This is def targetted.
Have a BA, and CCs and no deals like that for me.

I’m wondering about the Uverse option as well. Maybe make Uverse payments in store, would that qualify?

Do we get any confirmation after completing two transactions?

I made two transaction but didn’t get any mail also there is no change in the deals page as well….

Wyle
Wyle

Months ago, they used to show as “processing” almost instantly. Lately it takes a few days for that and another day or so to show as earned. Pretty sure they don’t send an email confirmation.

Roman
Roman

Did you get your transactions to trigger the offer? I did the two transactions and so far no signs of processing. It seems I’ll have to call and ask about it.

Wyle
Wyle

From the details for the deal … “Your $75 cash back is earned within 30 days after making your second transaction.”
My second transaction was 6 days ago. It’s still not showing as processing yet either, but I figure I’ll give ’em another week. I haven’t had one not go through yet.

Don L

Anyone having trouble with cancelled orders?

I got one order of screen protectors through and I can’t get a second to complete the deal.

Any tips? Thanks

Logan
Logan

Seems as though people are seeing a similar issue (or may not be an issue hard to tell yet).
I ordered two, $15 + tax items and only one of them has processed through my BoA account. the other isn’t even in processing yet and its been about 9 days. Really odd. I might contact ATT or BoA at end of this week if it still hasn’t processed from my account.

Don L

I finally went into an AT&T store to make the second purchase – couldn’t get another through online. Hopefully the promo will post

John
John

Same here. AT&T canceled my second online order 3 times. Had to go to their store to make second purchase. Looks like I am out of luck because I’m seeing my offer under expired tab. Need to give them a call and see what happened.

Logan
Logan

The 2nd payment finally is marked as “processing”. It should work now. Took 9 days from original purchase.

EBF

I paid $15 twice on a friend’s bill. Will report back when I see the “you earned cash back” notice on my BoA account.

Shelly
Shelly

My second purchase with my credit card does not even show up on my BofA account – its been 6 days. Its not even listed as processing. Did you just wait it out to the 9th day or contact BofA or AT&T? Made my first purchase in store and second online (not sure if online matters)

John Quest

I am a bit confused with two two expiration dates. Does it mean that you have to accept the offer by 5/20/2016? e.g. add the deal in your BOA account by 5/20/2016 (otherwise it will disappear after 5/20/2016?), then make two separate transactions…by 7/4/2016?

1) offer expires 5/20/2016,
2) make two separate transactions …by 7/4/2016

Tim

My $100 Just went to pending 🙂

My offer:

Mine is $75 CB, but still not processing yet. 2nd purchase 2+ weeks ago. ?!?!
When was your 2nd purchase?
Online or in store?
Items purchased and prices?

For me, I bought two charger cables on different days for $15+tax in store.
Thx.

Tim

I did two U-Verse payments.
$15.00 & $15.99.
Did them on the 13th, they posted 4/15.

Hi,

Did you pay for Uverse internet or cable? Did you pay online? And did you get the $75 cashback posted to your account? Thanks!!

Wyle
Wyle

I made two separate purchases (charger cables) in AT&T store for $15+tax over 3 weeks ago. Both showed up on CC activity, but $75 deal still isn’t processing. Anyone get this to work for straight out item purchases or did everyone’s bonus involve a AT&T bill payment?? I’m a little reluctant to call in and complain when I’m obviously working the system.
Thanks

From my personal experience, When you go to an AT&T store, make sure it’s a Corporate store, not an Authorize Retailer. They look very similar but the AR store might coded differently.

Wyle
Wyle

Maybe moot at this point, but my two purchases from 4/18 and 4/21 FINALLY show up as “earned” for the $75 cash bank. I never did see it as processing and I checked fairly often. First time thats happened, but happy for cash back. Thanks again for pointing out the minimum requirements, DoC.

My $75 finally went to Pending as well.

I made two online billpay on 05/11/16 to AT&T wireless. But after that my offer simply disappeared, not in the available, not in the earned, not in the expired.

What should I do? I didn’t took a screenshot to show that it was in my account.

Wyle
Wyle

Mine disappeared just before it switched to earned. First time I’ve seen that. I’d give it a few days to see if that happens to you before calling.

Christa
Christa

Mine also disappeared! My purchases posted on 5/10. Can you tell me about how long it was between it switched from “disappeared” to earned? I’ll give it some time but it’s a bit disconcerting that it’s not there anywhere!

Wyle
Wyle

It was 3 or 4 days. I didn’t notice exactly when it disappeared.

Raul

Mine disappeared as well. Not in earned or expired. poofff, gone just like that!

Bryan

Mine disappeared too! Has anyone called Bank of America about that problem yet?

Cashback Pal

Activated offer, made 2 different online purchases (~20 USD each) at att.com, payments are in “Pending” state. No mentions of cashback yet. Saved offer screenshot for myself, just in case something would go wrong. We’ll see how it goes.

Cashback Pal

Offer had disappeared from “Available” and then appeared in “Earned” after a week or two. Cashback was paid with July’s statement.

Wyle
Wyle

Anyone actually get their cash back yet? Mine finally show up as “earned” around 5/20 with a heading “to be paid by the end of May”. Since I’ve never seen a deal go from “earned” to paid in less than a month, I was skeptical, especially since my cash back usually posts around the 22-24th. No cash in my savings yet, but the deal shows as “paid in May” instead of switching to “to be paid by end of June” as I expected.
Guess its time for a call, since they don’t support BankAmeriDeals via chat.

ray

i have the same issue where it shows earned but didnt credit my card. when i called they looped me from one call to another. will try again later or wait another month to see if it posts end of june

Mine is showing paid in August but nothing in account as of September 1st. I feel like it’s just a hassle I don’t have time to call and talk to multiple reps expanding the situation multiple times. Do yourself a favor and don’t make purchases of you’re not already with att.

Call 1-800-933-6262. Be sure to say the reason for your call is ONLINE TECH SUPPORT. (If you don’t, you may get transferred to the wrong department 4 or 5 times.) This will get you transferred to the BankAmeriDeals department that can help. They will look at your account and open a ticket and you’ll get a credit in a few weeks. I had to do this twice and was successful on both accounts. They are aware of the problems with it not posting automatically and are super friendly.

Great, I saw this offer earlier but ignored it, went back again after I read this post and saw that I have an offer of make two separate transactions for $15 and get $100 back

So I have this offer currently:

“Earn $75 cash back when you make two transactions with AT&T wireless using your eligible card associated with this offer. Also, see how you can get up to $650 in credits from AT&T wireless!

Call 1-800-868-9708, visit AT&T.com or come into an AT&T store today!

Offer expires 2/19/2017. 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 4/5/2017. Your $75 cash back is earned within 30 days after making your second transaction. See details on AT&T’s offer. Taxes, fees, other charges & restrictions may apply.”

From what I have gathered here, last year the folks that got this offer and tried ordering accessories online from ATT did not get the credit, and/or their purchase charge just disappeared? But the ones that paid uverse or went into ATT corp store did get the credit even if they weren’t a customer?

This is a fantastic deal. I bought the AT&T GoPhone ZTE Maven 2 twice (i.e. in two separate transactions) for $30/ea (plus a few dollars in taxes), got the $75 credit from Bank of America, then sold each ZTE Maven 2 phone for $39.99 on Ebay, and I still have the two $30 AT&T Prepaid Refill cards that I’ll probably sell for $25/ea on Ebay.

After paying Ebay fees, I’ll be making a profit of $119 on this deal.

Thank you for posting this!

Nice work 😉
