For starters, the card comes with a $300 statement credit when you make at least $3,000 in purchases within 90 days of your account opening. New cardholders also receive a 0% introductory APR on purchases for 9 billing cycles from account opening. Regular APR of 12.24% to 22.24% variable applies after the introductory period.

You’ll also earn an unlimited 1.5% cash-back on all purchases made with the card, with no annual fee. With the card, your cash-back rewards will never expire and can be redeemed as a deposit into your Bank of America checking or savings account, as a card statement credit, or as a check mailed to you.

The Bank of America Business Advantage Unlimited Cash card includes perks like travel accident insurance, rental car insurance, and lost luggage insurance.

If your small business banks with Bank of America, becoming a Bank of America Preferred Rewards for Business member is the perfect way to boost your cash-back rewards even further!

Bank of America offers 3 tiers in the Preferred Rewards for Business program — Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Honors. You can qualify for each tier based on the 3-month combined average daily balance of qualifying Bank of America business deposit accounts and/or Merrill business investment accounts, with Gold requiring $20,000, Platinum requiring $50,000, and Platinum Honors requiring $100,000.

At each loyalty level you’ll receive the following credit card rewards boost:

  • Gold: 25% bonus — 1.875% back on all purchases
  • Platinum: 50% bonus — 2.25% back on all purchases
  • Platinum Honors: 75% bonus — 2.625% back on all purchases

Your business will also need to have an active, eligible Bank of America business checking account to enroll in the Bank of America Preferred Rewards for Business program.

While there are cards on the market that offer 2% cash-back on all purchases, the ability for Platinum and Platinum Honors members to earn 2.25% to 2.625% cash-back on all purchases, with no annual fee, is about as good as it gets when it comes to non-bonused cash-back credit cards.
