New Bank of America Rules – 90 Day Wait to Apply for Same Card Product

Many of us in the miles & points hobby like Bank of America, because it’s been relatively easy to earn the sign-up bonus again from their cards.

In the past, folks were able to get a second (or third, or more) Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® Card so long as they waited at least 30 days after their last approval for the same card.

But it appears Bank of America has changed the rules.  Now, your application will be automatically rejected as a duplicate if you’ve applied for the same card in the past 90 days.

Will I Lose My Points If I Close 1 of My 2 Chase Ultimate Rewards Earning Cards?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Lau, commented:

Hiya!  If I want to close my Chase Sapphire Preferred and keep my Chase Freedom card, do I lose the Chase Ultimate Rewards points I earned with my Chase Sapphire Preferred account?

Thanks for the question, Lau!

As long as you keep at least 1 Chase Ultimate Rewards points earning card open, you won’t lose your Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you cancel a card.  Just transfer all your points to the account you plan to keep before you cancel. 

But your points may not be worth as much to you!
