Seems like moves are on the way in the Bank of America department, and it’s not necessarily good moves either. Bank of America discontinued the Better Balance Rewards Card on the premise that when you visit the Better Balance Rewards card page, you’re directed to the generic Bank of America card selection page.
On top of discontinuing the card, they will be integrating a new card simply coined the “BankAmericard” which offers low interest, 0% APR for the first 15 months as well as 0% Intro balance transfer fee for the first 60 days your account is open and free access to FICO.
Editor’s Note: It’s likely that most current cardholders of the previous card will be sent the BankAmericard Low Interest Card, however, at this moment, we’ll just have to wait and see. If you have any intel, we’d really appreciate it if you let us know in the comment section below!

The Better Balance Credit Card from Bank of America was a prominent card for those that wanted time to pay off their balance over time. Just recently however, the card was discontinued and will be replaced with what is believed to be the “Bank Amerficard.” Only way I can really describe the new card is useless, or a cookie-cutter Chase Slate Card to say the least. It’s currently unknown just what happens to current cardholders, if you have any intel, we’d really appreciate letting us know in the comment section.
