Targeted Spending Offer: Uncapped 4.5% Cash Back on Bank of America Business Advantage Unlimited Cash Rewards Credit Card

Good evening everyone.  I just received an interesting spending offer in the mail on my Bank of America Business Advantage Unlimited Cash Rewards Credit Card (direct link).  From July 1 through September 30, I can get an extra 3% cash back on top of the standard 1.5% cash back on all purchases, for a combined total of 4.5% cash back (any category with no cap in spending or earning).  Unfortunately, this is a targeted offer with a unique QR code and registration code.  The offer also states that you will not earn addition rewards if you are enrolled in Preferred Rewards for Business.

For background context, I received this credit card in October 2022 when there was a $500 sign up bonus.  After receiving the sign up bonus, I didn’t use the credit card at all, so I decided to close this credit card in November 2023.  During the call, the rep offered me a $50 statement credit if I kept the credit card open.  I accepted the retention offer and that was the last activity on this credit card since November 2023.  This offer might be targeted to cardholders who have not spent on this credit card in the last 6+ months.

My Las Vegas Casino Status Matches: Caesars Diamond > Wynn Platinum > Fontainebleau Gold > MGM Gold > Unity by Hard Rock Icon

Good evening everyone, I hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend.  Over the weekend, Laura and I stayed at the Paris Las Vegas, I completed a few casino status matches, we had some nice brunches and dinners, and we saw 2 Cirque Du Soleil shows.  I will write more about our time in Las Vegas in a future post, but first, let me get this post out since it is time sensitive.  I carefully read and followed Nick’s post (Planning an epic status match run in Las Vegas) and this is what we did:

1: Caesars Rewards Diamond

As a reminder, I originally matched my Wyndham Rewards Diamond to Caesars Rewards Diamond thanks to having the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card ($95 annual fee).  I stopped by the Caesars Rewards desk inside the Paris Las Vegas casino and picked up my new Caesars Rewards Diamond card.  My previous card expired 01/2024.

Check the Citi Merchant Offer Redeemed Section to Verify You’ve Used an Offer Successfully

Good afternoon everyone, we are almost to Memorial Day Weekend!  A few days ago, Doctor of Credit published Citi Offers: AT&T Wireless, $40 Off $65.  I have AT&T service, so I quickly added the $40 Off $65 AT&T Citi Merchant Offer to all my eligible Citi credit cards (6 out of 7 cards had the offer).  I then signed into my AT&T account and prepaid $65 toward my next bill.

Citi doesn’t send emails when you use a Citi Merchant Offer (like the way American Express does with AMEX Offers), so you need to wait patiently for the purchase and statement credit to post.  My $65 AT&T purchase posted to my Citi Double Cash on May 20, but I haven’t received the $40 statement credit yet (as of May 23).  I decided to do some digging to see if I triggered the offer, even before the statement credit posted to my account.  Here is how you can do that within the Citi app (and the steps are probably very similar on the website).  Sign into you Citi app, click on any Citi credit card, then scroll down and click the Explore Products & Offers button.
