Free Entry Into 150 Museums For Bank Of America Credit Card Holders
Credit cards are the easiest route to cash in on the frequent flyer miles where there are incentives that may reach beyond 100,000 miles. However, there are also other means to squeeze out the extra value out of credit cards that don’t have anything to do with the loyalty points. For instance, cash back is a much better deal when compared to earning points, in case you do your calculations right.
Today, we are going to be looking at the add-on from the Bank of America, which is called ‘Museums on Us.’ This program is into its 15th year and allows debit and credit card holders from Bank of America, free access into 150 museums, science centers, aquariums etc., during every month, but only on the first weekend.
The participating institutions will vary in each region and in every city. If you live in Los Angeles and if you have an eligible card, then you can gain entry into the L.A. County Museum, the Autry Center of the American West, Skirball Center, and the Hammer etc. There are also other institutions that are merely a two-hour drive such as Discovery Science Center, Museum of Latin American Art, Palm Springs Art Museum, Riverside Art Museum, The Living Desert, Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum, and Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
However, if you happen to live in Austin, Texas, you may be out of luck, and you may have to drive down to Dallas, Houston, or Fort Worth.
Bank of America also issues co-branded cards that are linked to other programs from Hawaiian Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Alaska Airlines, and Spirit. Other significant players in the travel rewards sector are American Express and Chase, but Bank of America is certainly not one of the prime players.
The point here is, that even if you are one of the culture vultures, the ‘Museums on Us’ may not be so tempting by itself in order to opt for the Bank of America card. Instead, this may only seem like a small perk in case you already hold a Bank of America card. So, you might want to consider keeping the card because of the perks such as ‘Museums on Us.’ This may also work for those who are looking at other alternatives due to various reasons. So, you can consider keeping the card instead of opting for other cards.
