  • 5 card limit: You will not get approved for a new consumer card if you already have 5 consumer BOA cards open
  • Get Same Card Again: With some BOA cards, must wait 24 months after either opening or cancelling, depending upon the card.
  • Hard inquiries are usually combined into 1 when initiated within 30 days but there have been reports of TransUnion not combining.

Regarding the 70K business card:

I am within the 24 months since I last had this card and so would not be able to apply for a while, however I see the language on the application states:

I also understand that I may be declined for additional credit card accounts if my business entity currently has, or has had, another business card with Bank of America in the preceding 24 month period.

I think this would allow me to get a card for a different business entity that has never had a BofA account. What do you think?

Greg The Frequent Miler

Yes that’s probably true, but I also think you have a good chance of getting approved even if you apply with the same business entity despite those terms.

Frank

So, if I apply, and the application is accepted, am I guaranteed to get the bonus?

Greg The Frequent Miler

I would never say “guaranteed” about anything, but I don’t think I’ve heard of people getting approved for BOA cards and not qualifying for the welcome bonus

Frank

Yes, of course, but your answer sounds fine for me. Thanks, Greg. I am almost back to under 5/24 and so need to plot my next strategy.

Doctor of Credit has a better offer for $200 on top of the 40,000 miles. I am not posting the link here because spam filters sometimes auto delete comments with a link

Greg The Frequent Miler

Thanks! Working on updating the offer now…

DP: Instant approval for Business version. Last time I had this card was from July 2019 to Aug 2020. I have a BofA checking account so I’m sure that helps.

BoA Business recon permanently closed? Their direct line has been “closed” in the middle of the day for weeks.

Jon

Does the 3/12 (7/12) limit refer to only new personal accounts in the last 12 mo, or personal+biz cards?

Jon

And just saw Nick’s answer in response to this comment on a different post, thanks! So this limit only counts your personal cards in the last 12 months.

Small point: You say 40 miles + Companion Ticket for the Alaska Business card, should be 40K.

[…] discount code each year. Qualifying cards: Alaska Airlines Visa Signature consumer card (US), the Alaska Airlines Visa Business card (US), as well as the World Elite and Platinum Plus MasterCard […]

I want this card but everyone says BOA always asks for extra info on your business so not worth the hard pull in my opinion.
