How to Earn Miles and Cash Back on Bank of America Cards

Lots of times you have to decide between earning miles and points or cash back on your everyday purchases, but your Bank of America credit cards can actually earn both points and cash back at the same time. I know lots of us have a Bank of America rewards credit card of some sort, with the Alaska Airlines card being a pretty popular one. On that card and others issued by BoA your purchases can earn cash back and miles/points at…

Get in Free to 175 Museums and More Around the Country This Weekend!

It’s the first full weekend of the month, so that means you can get in for free to over 175 museums, children’s museums, zoos, gardens, and more if you have a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card in your name.  My family has used this perk to get in free to the awesome Newseum in DC, the Anchorage Museum in Alaska, the Houston Zoo (no longer participating), and several popular museums in New York City. You can…

Limited Time: $0 Base Fare Companion Certificate with Alaska Airlines Card!

One of my favorite airline credit card perks just got better…for a limited time. The Alaska Airlines credit card offers not only sign-up bonus miles, but it also comes with a Companion Fare certificate that allows you to book a second economy seat on a paid Alaska Airlines or Virgin America flight by just paying taxes/fees + a $99 companion fee. This can be huge as you can even use to fly somewhere like Mexico or Hawaii and still get…

Why Getting the Spirit Airlines Credit Card Isn’t Crazy

My parents get new rewards credit cards from time to time, though at a rate even slower than me.  That’s saying a lot since I am pretty conservative taking the slow and steady approach with adding new cards to my collection.  However, over the years they have seen the light and understand that big travel rewards can come from strategic addition and use of various rewards credit cards. One card my dad has had for a little while now that…

An Up To 90,000 Mile Credit Card Offer, But…

A bank that offers rewards credit card, but sometimes get left out of the big sign-up bonus discussions is Bank of America.  They don’t have as many travel rewards credit cards as they used to, but they still have a few that can be pretty useful.  The Alaska Airlines card might be my favorite that they offer, but the Virgin Atlantic card is in the spotlight today thanks to a sign-up bonus of up to 90,000 miles.  That’s a big…

Get in to 150+ Museums Free Today With Certain Credit Cards!

It’s the first full weekend of the month (and also the day many are nursing “fireworks hangovers”), so that means you can get in for free to over 150 museums, children’s museums, zoos, gardens, and more if you have a Bank of America credit or debit card.  My own parents are in Washington DC today, and they were trying to brainstorm how to get the best deal possible into the Newseum as buying multiple tickets can add up as the…

BOA Hawaiian Card Accounts Converting to Barclays Accounts

This isn’t necessarily surprising news, but I still found it to be interesting news when I read a letter I got today about my Bank of America Hawaiian Airlines credit card (that I haven’t had in months).  The letter I got in the mail indicated that my BOA Hawaiian Airlines credit card will be converting to a Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard issued by Barclaycard.  The letter indicated I should receive the new card by mid-April and that I will…

End of Month “Last Calls” and Other Quick Updates

Here are a few quick reminders and odds and ends as we head toward the end of the month tomorrow…. The usual advice regarding the Citi credit card “double browser trick” seems to have changed.  Too early to tell if this deal is really dying, but it certainly seems to have changed.  Read this FT thread for more info, but the main piece of info is not to call to try and get the cards approved.  Just wait and let…

Mini Points: Improved UA Offer, Hyatt Category Update, and More

Here are a few quick updates on some different happenings in the miles and points world today. Some folks on Flyertalk are reporting that many once again are being targeted for a United MileagePlus Card that offers 50,000 miles after you spend $1,000 in the first three months of having the card.  You can then get an extra 5,000 miles for adding an authorized user.  All in all, that is a great offer if you can get it.  The regular…

The Three Offers I Picked for My Credit Card Churn (and why I picked them)

On Friday last week I applied for three rewards-earning credit cards.  Many in the miles and points world refer to this as a “churn”.  The definition of “churn” can mean applying for the same card over and over, or it can mean applying for rewards earning credit cards in batches even if you have never had them before.  In this case my definition of churn is the latter. First, I looked at my credit scores and points balances to determine…
