2013 Bank of America MLB credit card rewards not worth it?

Postby ortryan » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:45 pm

I recently received a mail offer for the MLB Extra Bases credit card. It gives 2% on groceries and 3% on gas on the first $1,500 spent per quarter.

The thing is I already have the BofA Cash Rewards card that gives me the exact same rewards but in the form of cash back. With the MLB credit card points, is it the same thing, just cash back and if so why do they act like it's something different?

Not worth the credit inquiry. If anything get the Amex Blue Cash Everyday.

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred

I was leaning towards that mind set. What really I don't get is why do they even have a credit card for Major League Baseball if there's nothing baseball about the card. I know the Nascar card, which is now discontinued, had one of a kind rewards like special access to watch training/warmup before a show, meet and greet. You could redeem your points for these things and it would take a lot of them but man, are those special prizes if you could save up enough for them. If the MLB card had similar I would apply in a heart beat. I would love to do a meet and greet with the Red Sox or do a tour of Wrigley Field. Maybe I should write and make these suggestions but BofA probably won't listen.

Just a gimmick, I guess.

Not one of BofA's card offerings is worth a hard inquiry.
Blue Cash Preferred ($24K), Costco TrueEarnings ($8K), Better Balance Rewards ($6K), CashForward ($15K), Sallie Mae Rewards ($10K), Quicksilver ($17K), AARP Rewards ($15K), Freedom ($15K), Double Cash ($16.5K), It ($28.5K), Fidelity Investment Rewards ($18K), Cash+ ($11K)
