Our Verdict

This offer comes and goes, recently it’s been on the MLB cards but now it’s on the NEA card. There are a few things to keep in mind with this card:

FYI if you apply for this your account may be flagged as “fraudulently opened.” It’ll get declined until you call them and ask that this be removed. I had this on my MTA and NEA from a few weeks ago.

Did you call BoA or MTA to get it removed?

Any DPs of being able to PC this card to the BofA BBR card?

Can I get two of the same bank of America credit cards if I just got this same card a month ago?

The link is for Mastercard though, not for Visa.

I called B of A and they told me this NEA Cash Rewards for the $200 cash back was a targeted offer only.

What purpose does calling serve?

Applied 11/5 and did not get an instant approval (got a pending review message of some kind but the screen changed before I could copy it).

Already have a strong relationship with BoA/Merrill (checking/CC/brokerage) so expecting to get approved, however do have quite a few HP/new accounts in the last year.

checked the online status page and appears I got denied. Could be because I already have a Cash Rewards card and there are some DPs out there that BoA is limiting customers to 1 card per now. Will get in touch with Recon on Monday morning

Anyone have the personal credit reconsideration line?

Both myself and my wife were instantly approved. What was odd, is that it showed the approval message, and the credit limit, and after about 15 seconds redirected us to the NEA homepage (back button didnt work), and with no followup email. I did check this site which confirmed we were approved, this could be handy for anyone who missed the flash approval screen.

So I managed to get this card after going through a long reconsideration call. It’s showing up in my account as a MasterCard. Note I had to transfer some of my available credit from my existing Cash Rewards Visa in order to get approved.

So back to the new card – it’s a MasterCard – with a 10K limit. I notice that it’s showing in the Rewards section that I’m eligible for a 10% bonus by tranferring to my checking account.

On my existing Visa the bonus is 75% because I’m platinum preferred honors.

Are the increased rewards not available on the mastercard or will I likely see the bonus percentage increase at some point once I’m using the card and earning rewards.

Hope I didn’t shoot myself in the foot bc I love the 5.25% back on gas and 3.5% back on groceries. note I’ve PCd the old Visa down to a BBR card to earn $30 per quarter back so I won’t have the old Cash Rewards card anymore.

I’m in the same situation (pending). What line did you call for reconsideration? Thanks!
