    That would be for a new cardholder, and/or for the fee card? I am a current holder of the no-fee card, and have not seen that offer.

    I searched around & found it! 40K sounds so sweet!!! Problem for me: I just canceled the 30K Card from a couple of years ago! Does playing the points game hurt your credit, when it comes to credit cards?

    I *never* took the card from BofA. Had no reason to, BofA screwed over my mother-in-law's estate. I liked Chase, they have always done OK by me. I was sorry to give up their Amtrak Rewards, I never had any problems with them.

    Lawyer told my husband there was no point in suing because BofA's resources were far greater than ours. If banks have that much power over us we're in deep sh*t

    Glad to hear it Watch your statements. Carefully.

    The fact that they FAILED to close my mother-in-law's accounts after she died ruined us and my sister-in-law. We're told we can go after those who were wrongly paid by BofA afterwards; but that the BofA will fight any wrongdoing on their own part. Unfortunately ALL the wrongdoing was on their part.

    BTW, one of our neighbors told us they found a 20K debt on a BofA card they didn't even have. Identity theft. It took BofA **two years** to admit it wasn't their debt - after BofA sued them for it.

    Asa far as I'm concerned this is the most crooked bank in this country.

    PSS Somewhere between 2006-2008 we saw billboards in Phoenix, where we had lived for about 40 years, advertising credit cards for those *without documents* at BofA. No other bank advertised this way. We had never seen anything like it before and have never seen anything like it since. We left Arizona in 2009, tired of the increase in crime and taxes.

    It will take a small hit in the range of 10 to 30 points but it will recover within a few months. Our credit scores fluctuate almost as much throughout billing cycles due to fluctuating debt to credit ratios.

    I have been hesitating about this card for quite a while and I think I might pull the trigger.

    Has the sign up bonus ever been higher than 40,000?

    i had the fee card for a few years(and the bonus that came with it). this spring i applied for the non-fee(12k pt bonus). got it and cancelled the fee card. saw on this thread about the 40k bonus now offered on the fee card. applied and was approved. that will be a nice journey for us. thanks for the heads up. my credit score is in the 700's so if it takes a hit with flipping cards that is ok with me

    How long does it have to be between closing the fee card and applying again to get the new bonus?
    I think it has been three years since opening the card, less than two years since closing it.

    Mine as well. The couple times I've had a question concerning an issue they were promptly rectified. I love their app.. I can follow my accounts in extreme detail and have the ability to initiate any action with my accounts I need. And a big plus to me is they still allow screen copy of information I coose.

    Canceling the card may produce a larger hit because it reduces your total credit limit available so makes your ratio of indebtedness to available credit higher. Crazy to me but it's how it works.

    BTW if you do a mock booking you will be led to an application page where you will be offered an extra $100 statement credit on top of 40000 points. :)

    Even better! :D

    What is a mock booking? I couldn't figure out how to make this happen.

    Mock booking is the lingo used in some travel sites and it means you start the booking process without finishing. You just stop short at paying at the final screen. People do it to check the final real prices instead of the advertised prices.

    If you can't find it I can send you a direct link.
