Picking A Partner
Update: ABA card is no longer working, but we found a working link for the AICPA card.
I’ve only been able to find the direct link to the American Bar Association card, but I suspect it’ll be available for other co-branded partners. If anybody can find those links, let me know and I’ll add them. We know how vaguely much these co-branded partners make from this relationship due to the fact that Komen publicly posts this information:
For each new Pink Ribbon BankAmericard Cash Rewards™ MasterCard® credit card benefiting Komen that is activated within 90 days of opening, Komen receives $3 and 0.08% of all retail purchases (less returns) made with the card. Komen also receives $3 for each renewal of a card that was in good standing during the 12 month period and does not have a zero balance at the time of the renewal.
These cards are well worth considering, $175 is one of the better cash sign up bonuses that is currently available. In addition to this Bank of America also combines hard pulls when you apply for multiple cards at the same time and you can also product change this card into a Better Balance Rewards card (yes, this is very much still possible) for an easy extra $120 per year.
They offered the same $175 bonus on December 23rd, 2014 (and we were first alerted of this bonus coming back on December 23rd of 2015, we’ve just been slow to post) and that deal lasted until around March 10th of the following year – so you should have some time before you need to apply for this card. We’ll repost this deal when we find the other links to different organizations, as I imagine most people won’t be interested in supporting the American Bar Association.
There is no need to be a member of any of these organizations to get approved for any of these cards either. The standard bonus on these cards is $100 after $500 in spend.
