[Expired] New Merrill+ Link (50,000 Merrill Points / $3,000 Spending, $500-$1,000)
Update: this is now expired; the application link was taken down around 5 PM on March 31.
We have covered the Merrill+ extensively here, so I won’t go into detail about the offer again. If you would like to read more about this offer, please consult our original article about the offer and a followup article about the offer. If you would like to read a review of the card, you can view that here, and a guide to maximizing Merrill points by redeeming for flights can be found here.
Direct link to offer. Nota bene: reddit user polisk confirmed this link will submit an application, but reddit user brainvictim ran into the usual problem of the application erroring out. You may need to try in multiple browsers, in incognito mode, or other options (such as sharing or not sharing your information with Merrill Lynch). YMMV.
- Earn 50,000 points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first 90 days.
There’s a reason we’ve covered this bonus an absurd number of times–it’s really, really good, and a new online link was highly anticipated. As a reminder, applications almost universally go to pending at first, so I would wait one business day before calling in to reconsideration. Within a few hours you should be able to review your application status online at this link.
Before applying, please read one of our other articles about this offer, as well as things everybody should know about Bank of America credit cards. Remember that you do not need a relationship with Merrill to get this card, Bank of America does combine hard pulls, and Bank of America may use an existing credit file to evaluate your application.
Do take appropriate caution if you have many Bank of America credit cards open, as Bank of America has been closing the cards of some customers if they have more than four. You may find it difficult to be approved if you have 6 Bank of America credit cards, or you may find it a breeze. YMMV.
