The Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Credit Card provides some of the best returns among its card competitors. For anyone who loves to travel, this card offers benefits on everything from flight and dining rewards, to luxury hotel perks and added travel protections.
Most of this card’s standout features are benefits for travelers – whether for business or pleasure.
Best ways to use this card
The best customer for the Bank of America Premium Rewards Card is a Bank of America account holder who’s already a Preferred Rewards member. Flexibility is the big win here. You do need at least 2,500 points to start redeeming. But when you do, you can redeem for cash back, as a statement credit to your credit card, deposits into your Bank of America® accounts or a gift card.
Keep the 18.24% to 25.24% APR and $95 annual fee in mind and plan ahead. If you opt for the Premium Rewards, be sure you’re spending responsibly, on-budget, and paying on time.
In a nutshell
If you’re a frequent traveler with a solid credit score and good budget, this card is a great option. It’s especially sweet if you’re a travel perks enthusiast.
If you’re still building your credit or you’re not a huge traveler, there are different card options that may work better for you. For example, the Discover it® Secured card has lower fees and a lower APR overall. Though it doesn’t provide the same amount of perks, you’ll still enjoy high cash back rewards at gas stations and restaurants.
