With the MLB Extra Bases credit card, Bank of America is introducing a product that baseball fans will love. This new Bank of America reward credit card offers the chance to earn points on purchases, which can then be redeemed for exciting baseball-related rewards.
MLB Extra Bases cardholders earn one point for every dollar they spend in net retail purchases. There is no limit to the number of points that can be earned in a year, and unredeemed points do not expire for a rolling five year period.
The credit card's rewards start at less than 2,500 points and can be redeemed for tickets to regular-season Major League Baseball games, in addition to the 2007 All-Star Game and 2007 postseason games.
Points can also be redeemed for access to the field during pre-game activities, dugout visits and game-used memorabilia like baseballs, bases or line-up cards.
Other benefits come in the form of travel rewards, exclusive experiences, and even cash rewards. Furthermore, consumers get an official MLB licensed jersey after the first qualifying transaction with their MLB Extra Bases credit card.
As a low interest credit card, the MLB Extra Bases card charges no interest on balance transfers and cash advance checks for the first 12 months.
Currently, consumers can apply for the MLB Extra Bases credit card at MLB stadiums and at any of Bank of America's 5,700 branches.
