Staff Review

 

Editor's Rating:

3.6-star review

3.6 out of 5

Our take: The Bank of America Cash Rewards card offers an exceptional rewards rate on a category of the user’s choice, allowing increased flexibility. But a $2,500 spending cap on bonus category rewards limits how much cardholders can earn.
