Other than the (rather meager) sign-up bonus, what are the costs and pros/cons to having spouse as an additional card member vs. having her own? Probably going to this card for everyday spend fairly soon, but seems like a pain to have to buy airline tickets separately to trigger the fee reimbursement. Not an issue for the platinum level for both of us, but like to keep things as simple as possible.

Greg or Nick, IIRC you both carry this in your wallet :-). Do you have a suggestion on when I should apply for this Premium Rewards card relative to when I open and fund a Merrill account to enter the Preferred Rewards program? Just yesterday I opened a Merrill account and triggered a transfer of an IRA to start the process. So today my balance is $0 and within a week or two I should have a $100K+ balance in my account. If I read the info correctly, I need a 90-day average balance of $100K to qualify for Platinum. So if I want my SUB spend to be at the increased Platinum rate, I should probably wait a couple months before applying for this CC. Am I thinking about this correctly?

Will a combination of Personal & Business accounts at BoA count towards the $50K Premium bonus?

Nick Reyes

No. Per the terms, only personal accounts on which you are an owner or co-owner count. The terms explicitly exclude business accounts.
