What are the insurance benefits with this card?

Can we re-apply for this card again for another $200 bonus if we already have a travel rewards that’s 1 month old?

Usually you can with bank of america

Hello everybody,
I am proud to share that BoFA did approve me for travel rewards credit card $500 spend for 10k travel rewards points online and a day later to my surprise, I saw that the 20k travel rewards for $1000 was online available!! So I knew calling will put me in circles. I just chatted online this sunday that I was upset about the 20k travelrewards online offer and wanted them to match it. He opened a ticket and said they would revert in 14 days. Guess what today, I see 20k travelrewards in my rewards section! Good job BoFA!

Thanks for the data point, Sate.

Do I have to close my current BOA Travel card that I’ve had for years in order to receive a new card with this offer?

Applied 7 days back with an old offer. Received card yesterday.
could not find CS for chat, so I called over phone.
no go with CS and Sales team. The only option both suggested was to close 1 day old account (that has 0 transaction) and reapply again with new offer.
Tomorrow, I will try CS via Chat.
In general my experience with BOA is; very hard to deal with compared to Chase.

After two unsuccessful try, finally I got CR who was ready to submit office match request.
I received credit of 10k to match with 20k offer.

I went through preferred rewards live chat and asked if they’d match the increased bonus. The rep put in a request and said I’d get notified by mail in 7-10 days. I got the card just over a month ago, so guess we’ll see.

Update: 10,000 point “adjustment” appeared in account this morning. Very pleased. Wish the bonus got the pref rewards bump though!

I have found preferred rewards chat generally very responsive whenever I’ve had an issue e.g., a cashback deal that didn’t post.

Thank you for your notification. I got back additional $100 bonus.

I got approved my second travel card two weeks ago to replace my two Arrival+, and Alaska card at the same within 15 minutes. I just chatted with the representative online and he agreed to match the $200 signon bonus offer in 2 minutes. I have a preferred platinum status

BOA has been denying people who have multiple inquiries left and right lately, they appear to have changed their policy like Chase recently has as well. Read up on the Alaska CC thread on FT for more info.

Thanks for the information, but those of us who do not churn credit cards probably have nothing to fear.

Just one data point, but I have 9 inquiries on my TU report (which I’m pretty sure is the one they pulled because they pulled that in the past) and they denied me. I eventually asked to move a credit line, they said they’d take 3 days to process it.

Looks like I got approved after moving some of my credit line from my other BoA card.

10 inquiries on TU, including 2 within the last month. Just approved for both Travel Rewards and Amtrak Guest Rewards (no AF version) using 2B method.

What does it mean by $200 in travel credit? Can I purchase a gift card from an airline company and use the $200 credit after my $1000 spend? Or do I have to go through the BOA site and use the $200 through their travel site? If I can use it for cashback or a gift card, I’m all over this. When you mention applying for multiple cards counting as one inquiry, how does that work? Do I just apply for each individually on the same day and it will only have 1 pull on my credit?

Thanks?

Can the $200 be redeemed as straight cashback?
