On November 5, 2022, Bank of America is introducing a More Rewards Day where the bank is offering either 2 additional miles or 2% back on purchases made on that day. This is a single-day event and could provide an opportunity to earn some extra miles for making purchases that wouldn’t typically earn extra miles.
How To Participate
There’s actually no enrollment necessary for this offer. Simply spend on a Bank of America credit card on November 5, 2022, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. EST and you’ll be able to participate. It’s worth noting that the purchase itself needs to be made on November 5, even if it posts at a later date. Similarly, a purchase made earlier than November 5, but posting on that date won’t count for the offer. So, you physically need to swipe your card or hit “purchase” online on November 5.
Any transaction that would normally earn points or cash-back is eligible, which is great as it means this offer isn’t limited to specific categories.
The points will post about 12 weeks after the promotion has ended, so keep your eye out in about 3 months to see the extra points post to your account.
Note that Bank of America Preferred Rewards members will earn their regular Preferred Rewards bonus on their purchases but not on the incremental bonus earn for this promotional day.
If you hold a Bank of America card that normally earns cash-back, you’ll add an additional 2% as cash-back on November 5. For example, if you normally earn 1% cash-back, you’d earn 3% back on November 5th. If you normally earn 2% back, you’d earn 4% on November 5.
Points and Miles Cards
Similar to cash-back cards, if you hold a card that earns points or miles, you’ll add an additional 2 points or miles per $1 onto your normal categories and spend. For example, if your card earns 3 miles per dollar, on November 5 you’d earn 5 miles per dollar.
Hot Tip: You may want to consider holding off large purchases until November 5 — if you can, so you can earn additional miles under this offer.
Interestingly, even if you hold a credit card that doesn’t normally accumulate miles, points or cash-back, on November 5th, whatever you spend will earn 2% back as a statement credit. This is a really unique offer for a bank to offer this type of promotion even to cards that don’t traditionally earn rewards.
This More Rewards Day, while only a single-day event for now, might become something Bank of America will do more often in hopes you’ll keep its cards front of mind and spend on them every month rather than sticking them to the back of your wallet. If you have purchases to make and have a Bank of America card, be sure to swipe your card on November 5.
