BankAmericard Travel Rewards® Program Information. Earn 1.5 base points per dollar of new net retail purchase transactions (qualifying purchases less credits, returns, and adjustments) charged to the card each billing cycle. You will earn 3 points per dollar (consisting of 1.5 base points and 1.5 bonus points) for the first $6,000 in airline purchases (up to 9,000 bonus points) made at the Bank of America Travel Center (“Travel Center”) each calendar year. All other purchases made at the Travel Center, excluding insurance purchases, will receive 3 points per dollar with no limit on bonus points. If the primary applicant for this card has a checking, savings or retirement account with Bank of America, N.A., a Cash Management Account®, Merrill Edge® or any other account with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated or U.S. Trust, the card account will receive an annual bonus points award of 10% of the amount of net purchases (or 1 bonus point for every $10) made with the card during the year. The qualifying account must be open at the time of review, which will occur on or around December 31st of each year and the bonus will appear on your February or March monthly billing statements.

Fractions of points greater than .50 are rounded up and less than or equal to .50 are rounded down. Balance Transfers, Cash Advances, including purchases of money orders or other cash equivalents, purchases made by or for a business or for a business purpose, fees, interest charges, unauthorized/fraudulent transactions and certain other charges do not earn points. Earn unlimited points. Points do not expire. Points cannot be redeemed if your account is not in good standing and will be forfeited upon account closure.

Rewards begin at 2,500 points for travel credits, cash and charitable contributions.

It looks like the only advantages to this card over the FIA Fidelity Investment Rewards Visa are a) the $100 signup bonus and b) 3% Cash Back for purchases made at the Bank of America Travel Center (with bonus points for airfare capped at $3K in spending).

Not a bad no annual fee travel rewards card if the Bank of America Travel Center has competitive pricing.

You can also transfer your points to FIA AMEX to cash out. 100points=$1.
Also, the BofA Platinum Privileges Travel Rewards Card gives you a 2.1% back. But has an annual fee (waived if you have $50K in $'s or loans).

The Travel Rewar5ds card, if still available, can be qualified for by $50,00 in Merrill Edge brokerage accounts plus a BOA bank account. Since they include 529 plans and IRA's in the total, and have bonuses for opening each account, and give 30 free trades per month, this is a very attractive package.
