Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Max cards: Bank of America will only approve you for 2 Bank of America personal cards within 2 months, 3 Bank of America personal cards within 12 months, and 4 Bank of America personal cards within 24 months
  • You cannot get approved for a personal Bank of America card if you have more than 5 Bank of America personal credit cards open
  • BOA 2/6 cards in 12 months rule: Bank of America will not approve you for their credit card if you opened more than 2 cards in the past 12 months, even if it’s from other issuers. Unless you are a BOA bank account holder, then you can get approved even if you opened up to 6 cards in 12 months
  • 24 month rule: The Unlimited Cash Rewards card may not be available to you if you currently have or have had the Unlimited Cash Rewards card in the past 24 month period. Based on these terms, it seems that you "may" not be eligible for a new card until your previous card is closed for a full 24 months
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Bank Of America card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Bank Of America is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day

  • Credit bureau: Bank Of America will usually pull your Experian credit report (If you freeze Experian then Bank Of America will pull your TransUnion credit report)
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Credit inquiries for all Personal BOA cards for applications within 30 days will be combined
  • Check application status: You can check your application status  here
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1-800-732-9194 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: You can request Bank of America to expedite your physical card by calling Bank of America customer service. Bank of America will in most cases not offer an instant credit card number for your new card.
