Bank of America 5x points promotion?

Postby Mogul of Pineapples » Sat May 28, 2011 6:21 pm

I haven't used my Bank of America credit card in exactly one year and today when I logged onto my account I was prompted with a promotion for 5x points on gas, grocery and travel through the month of June. This is the first time I have seen them offer this.

Very interesting. I have my checking account with Bank of America and quit using their credit card last fall because of the low rewards. If I were given 5x points on those categories it would nudge me to use it for sure. I am not going to use it and see what happens.

I don't use my Bank of America card and have never gotten a promotion like this. I hate mine because the rewards blow.

What other cards offer incentives like this or better for not using a card? It would almost make sense to keep a treasure trove of credit cards in the sock drawer and then pull one out to use only when a promotion like this was given. Did you see the post below this by the guy given 10% on gas for not using his card?

Update:

My billing statement closed over a week ago and I was not given the 5x points. I will be calling Bank of America this week.
