I don't know if any other "University" cards are getting this good of a deal, but I received this via e-mail, and it doesn't appear targeted as to who can apply.

The gist of the offer is 25,000 Rewards points which can be redeemed for $250 Cash... which for a BOA card, and for only spending $250 on the card is pretty sweet deal... And even better for those Iowa Hawkeye fans!!!

The BT offer is not capped, so thats not hot at all...

Apply Here

You will click on either one of the credit cards, and the 25,000 point offer will appeer.

Here is what the e-mail said...

great offer, kaka

Super duper. Thanks!

do a search at Fatwallet. You will see a lot of cc offers posted here link to that site.

Where will these 25,000 Rewards points get posted and how do you redeem them for cash? Is it Bank of America who is going to send me a check or will it come from Iowa Rewards? How easy to deal with are these Iowa Rewards?

I'm glad others are jumping on this... I missed out on the Chase $250 because I had applied for a Chase Business Card 90 days prior... arghh...

And for those who don't want to apply via the link, you can use the toll free number too..

and BTW it pulled from Experian for me.

I got the same response. Wonder why???

Thanks OP! Got one.
"Congratulations, your credit card application has been approved with a $8000 credit line! You will receive your credit card within 7 to 10 days and the Welcome Package within 10 - 14 days at the address you provided."

if they do not list a max BT fee, is it just 3% of BT amount?

Cheers OP the wifey and I instantly approved. Easy $500. Thought my 80 plus experian inquiries from AMEX promos would scare them off but as usual the credit card banks are too greedy for their own good.

I got that using Netscape, but then it worked in IE. Maybe coincidence (that it came back into operation at the instant I switched browers) but more likely brower/security level issues, I have Netscape security set "higher" than IE*

* Reasons of my own choosing which I'd rather not get into here, I hate IE as much as anybody so please let it go.

The first time I applied it gave me the same error and then transferred me to another page to apply - BUT - the bonus now was a fleece Iowa blanket (whippee!). Blankets are great and all but I would personally rather keep warm with $250 of cash )

So ... I went back to the original link, clicked this time on the Cap building, made sure I clicked the two buttons at the top that ask questions (which I didn't do or see when I clicked on the Hawk card) and everything went through fine. Still said I was pending but that is probably because I just did a little AOR myself and have a ton of inquiries out there.

Good luck and I hope I get that approval!

Same here: WHY?

The credit card application "link" you
requested is currently unavailable.

Approved! Green for OP!

Wow, these goofballs gave me another card. Will they ever learn?

Signed up both myself and the wife. Thanks!

Funny, though...both were approved instantly, but she got 13.3k and I got a measly 8k.
And she doesn't even work (stay-at-home mom).
Guess they figure she has more time to spend the $$$!

green for you OP. can we apply only for 1 card or we can apply for both and receive 2x25k points?

Easy $500....got instant approval for me ($5000) and my wife ($8000)....Thanks OP !!

First time I got the "application unavailable" trying the card on the left...switched to the card on the right and got instant approval on both....maybe just random luck...wonder if I submitted 2 aps for me ???


PS: GO HAWKEYES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (or whatever they are)....

Wheeee.

Thanks OP! Instant approval of $5k. First time I got an application approved instantaneously


I love these $250 bonuses.

thanks, instantly approved for 5k

Looks like BOA is giving away lots of money today !!

Instant approved for 15k, wow, nice! Time for the wife now!

Update: wife got 10k instant.

No instant approval for me & wife.
Hm, my FICO is over 800. What gives?
Getting a bit anxious.

To qualify for this offer, your new account must be used to make any combination of purchase, cash advance or balance transfer transactions totaling at least $250 (exclusive of transaction fees, if any).

cool>>>

Instant approve for 8K ..then the page refreshed before I could print and sign up for the magazine offer. Hitting "back" - says sorry the application you requested is not available .... Same q though as someone asked above ...can we apply for both and get 2*250K pts?

Thanks OP. Both my wife and I got in for $5K each. Easy $500

Damn. This would be great for my AOR, but it's 25 days too early. Knowing this place we're going to cause the revocation of this offer by then.

To answer an earlier post, yes the BT fee is uncapped, so a straight 3%. In other words, don't BT with it.

Got approved for the card on right.
A bit OT, all you guys monitoring credit, what service do you use. Any cheap deals on those....
