1Bank of America Preferred for Wealth Management Program. To enroll in the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management program you must have an active, eligible Bank of America® personal checking account and maintain a qualifying balance of at least $250,000 in your combined qualifying Bank of America deposit accounts (such as checking, savings, certificate of deposit) and/or your Merrill investment accounts (such as Cash Management Accounts, 529 Plans). The combined balance is calculated based on your average daily balance for a three calendar month period. Refer to the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management Addendum to the Personal Schedule of Fees for details on accounts that qualify towards the combined balance calculation and receive program benefits. Eligibility to enroll is generally available three or more business days after the end of the calendar month in which you satisfy the requirements. Benefits become effective within 30 days of your enrollment, or for new accounts within 30 days of account opening, unless we indicate otherwise. Certain benefits are also available without enrolling in Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management if you satisfy balance and other requirements. All Bank of America Private Bank clients are eligible for the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management program. Visit bankofamerica.com/preferred-rewards for additional program details. Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management clients, other than Bank of America Private Bank clients, do not receive Merrill Guided Investing discounts as part of this program. Credit Card Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management Bonus. Enrolled clients with Bank of America® Premium Rewards® credit cards can receive the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management bonus of 75% with each purchase. That means a purchase that earns 100 base points will actually earn 175 points when the purchase posts to your account. Travel and dining purchases—which earn 2 points per dollar spent—will also qualify for a Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management bonus. For example, a $100 travel or dining purchase that earns 200 base points will actually earn 350 points when the purchase posts to your account. You will not receive the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management bonus when you redeem your Points. The Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management bonus is not applied to any account opening bonus, if applicable. Other terms and conditions apply. Additional details about the Preferred Rewards for Wealth Management bonus are available in your card’s Program Rules, which are mailed upon account opening and are accessible through the rewards redemption site via Online Banking or by calling the number on the back of your card. 0919PR.CCPRB.GWPB.PR.0919

 

2Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Program Information. How You Earn Points: You earn points when you use your card to make purchases, minus returns, credits and adjustments (“Net Purchases”). The following transactions are not considered purchases and will not earn points: Balance Transfers and Cash Advances (each as defined in your Credit Card Agreement), fees, interest charges, fraudulent transactions and certain other charges. Unlimited 1.5 Points: Earn 1.5 base points for every $1 of Net Purchases (non-Travel and Dining) charged to the card each billing cycle. 2 Points: Earn 2 base points for every $1 of Net Purchases made with the card in the Travel and Dining category, with no limit on the number of points you can earn. Travel and Dining Category: Dining includes Restaurants, including Fast Food, and Drinking Establishments, such as Bars or Taverns. Travel includes: airlines, hotels, motels, timeshares, trailer parks, motor home and recreational vehicle rentals, campgrounds, car rental agencies, truck and trailer rental, cruise lines, travel agencies, tour operators and real estate agents, operators of passenger trains, buses, taxis, limousines, ferries, boat rentals, parking lots and garages, tolls and bridge fees, tourist attractions and exhibits like art galleries, amusement parks, carnivals, circuses, aquariums, zoos and the like. Purchases from some merchants that provide travel-related goods and services will not be eligible, like in-flight goods and services, and duty-free airport purchases. Travel and Dining Category Processing: Merchants are assigned a merchant category code (MCC) based on the merchant’s primary line of business. We do not determine which MCC a merchant chooses to classify itself. We group similar MCCs into Categories to help you earn rewards on purchases made at specific merchants. Your purchase may not qualify to receive the Travel and Dining Category earn rate if the merchant does not process transactions under the MCC that corresponds with the Travel and Dining Category, or your purchase is processed through a third-party payment account, mobile/wireless card reader, digital wallet not supported by Bank of America or similar technology where the technology does not support transmission of MCCs. For those Net Purchases, you will earn 1.5 base points per $1. Not all merchants accept all credit cards. How You Use Your Points: When your points balance is 2,500 points or more, you can redeem your points for cash rewards, including a statement credit, an electronic deposit into a Bank of America® checking or savings account, or for credit to a qualifying Cash Management Account® with Merrill or qualifying 529 account with Merrill. Points may also be redeemed for travel at the Travel Center, or gift cards. Cash rewards shall be issued for a U.S. dollar sum and may be requested on demand. Each point redeemed is worth $0.01 (2,500 points = $25). Points Expiration: As long as your account remains open with active charging privileges, points do not expire. Points Forfeiture: If the owner(s) of the card account voluntarily closes the card account, or if for any reason we close the card account, any unredeemed points associated with the account are subject to immediate forfeiture, unless specifically authorized by us. Rewards Program Rules: Program Rules containing additional terms of your credit card rewards program will be sent to you with your new account materials. Other significant terms apply. Program subject to change. 0620RLL.PR.0620

 

3Airline Incidental Statement Credit. You are eligible for a statement credit of up to $100 each calendar year if you make qualifying airline incidental fee transactions. To qualify, you must use your Premium Rewards® credit card to pay all airline incidental fee transactions. Allow 2-3 weeks from qualifying for the statement credit to post to your account. You are responsible for payment of all charges until the statement credit posts to your account. Your account must be open and not in default at the time of statement credit fulfillment. Qualifying transactions are those purchases made on domestic-originated flights on certain U.S.-domestic airline carriers that include: preferred seating upgrades, ticket change/cancellation fees, checked baggage fees, in-flight entertainment, onboard food and beverage charges, and airport lounge fees affiliated with eligible airline carriers. Airline ticket purchases, mileage point purchases, mileage point transfer fees, gift cards, duty-free purchases, award tickets and fees incurred with airline alliance partners do not qualify. Airline incidental fee transactions must be separate from airline ticket charges. The airlines must submit the ancillary fees under the appropriate merchant category code (MCC), industry code or required service or product identifier to be identified as a qualifying airline incidental fee transaction.
