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.

However, there may be exceptions to the rule. I’ll explain!
Until October 21, 2016, you can earn up to a 100% bonus when you buy Hilton points.
This can be a good deal if you use the Hilton points for an otherwise expensive stay. Or need extra points to top-off your account for an award!
With this deal, you’ll have to buy a minimum of 20,000 Hilton points ($200) to get the 100% bonus.

Million Mile Secrets Reader, Karen, tweeted:
Should I forego all credit card applications until I have my numbers below the “5/24” requirement? It would take me 8 months, meaning lots of missed opportunity.
Chase has some of the best travel credit cards available. But they also have stricter application rules, that is, if you’ve applied for ~5+ cards from any bank (except these business cards) in the past 24 months, it’s unlikely you’ll be approved for most Chase cards.
But there’s a way to still apply for new cards without impacting the number of credit cards on your credit report.
