BBVA NBA Card will Earn 5% Cash Back from June 1 – June 15

From June 1 through June 15th, the BBVA BNA credit card will offer 5% cash back on up to $5,000 in purchases.

Background

The BBVA NBA card offers 5% cash back on all purchases during NBA All-Star weekend and during the two week of NBA finals.

The 5% cash back used to be uncapped, but starting 2017 it has a cap of $5,000 in purchases per period. Going forward, we max this out by spending $5,000 and getting $250 back during All-Star weekend, and another $5,000/$250 during the Finals.

The BBVA NBA card is no longer available for signups, but many of us already have the card and can continue taking advantage of the 5% offer.

Exact Dates

The exact dates for the 5% period during the NBA Finals 2017 are June 1 through June 15th, fifteen days total. It doesn’t matter how long the games actually last, it’s just a flat 15 days.

In previous promotions, the bank has told us that the time-period begins with EST and ends with PST. The entire promotion would thus be 15 days and 3 hours.

We’ll have a dedicated post up on May 31 with tips and discussion about what works.

“The BBVA NBA card offers 5% cash back on all purchases during NBA All-Star weekend and during the two week of NBA finals.”

No, it does not. Warehouse club did not earn 5% during All-Star and there may be other exclusions. I learned the hard way. You should correct this.

Plastiq was hit or miss last time too.

The T&C doesn’t mention warehouse clubs in the list of exceptions. Did you complain?

FAQ for BBVA Compass NBA Card says:

Superstores and wholesale clubs are excluded from bonus categories.

Gerald

The way I read that is that superstores and wholesale clubs aren’t considered supermarkets (the card pays 2X year round for gas stations and supermarkets).

Just like others, I did not get the 5% bonus at Sam’s Club during the 2016 Finals.

Taxes work fine.

Probably depends on the municipality. Some have their own way of paying with a credit card, for others you may need to use Plastiq. Use whichever has the lower fee.

venmo worked but dont think im going to do it this time… just doesnt seem worth the risk of losing $150 to gain $100

I have a feeling this card is short lived, as they have NOT sent out chip enabled cards. They are really pushing the deadline on this.

They actually have sent out chip enabled cards. Call in and ask for it.

Card is actually ending I believe June and being converted into another BBVA card as BBVA either lost their NBA alliance or choose not to renew it. Either way it is a win for the consumer whichever bank the NBA card will goto as BBVA was a huge headache for many people whether it was them freezing accounts during 5x periods or not able to verify ID issues on applications. They were a mess in my opinion

are they still paying 5% on federal income tax payments? What about insurance premiums?

No problems here at all. Payouts came fast & furious 😉

hell they can drop my limit from $25,000 to $5,000 then.

bob

can you use to pay individual income taxes? How will the NBA leaving affect the 5% cashback

Gerald

I’ve used it successfully with pay1040.com.

bob

any reason to think pay1040 will not still work? Also will there still be 5% back in the future if the nba leaves?

My 6/12 purchase only earned me 1 point per dollar.
Anyone has similar issue?
