No Overlimit Fee
No Over-the-Limit Fee. You won’t pay an over-the-limit fee if your credit card balance goes over your credit limit.
Let’s say your credit card limit is $5,000. One month, you spend more than your limit on the card. Some credit card companies will charge you between $25 and $35 for this mistake. If your card advertises no overlimit fee, you won’t be charged a penalty for your spending.
Overdraft Protection. Are you worried that you may spend more than your limit on your credit card? If you sign up for overdraft protection, you’ll be fine. All you have to do is link your credit card to your checking account. The excess amount will be drawn from there, and your transaction will be approved.
Baggage Delay Insurance
Baggage Delay Insurance. Should your bags be delayed, this credit card can cover the cost of purchasing essential items.

Have you ever had that thing you bought break just outside the warranty period? With Return Protection, you have a longer warranty period to make sure it worked, or decide if you like it.

Global Assist Hotline. This service provides the credit card holder with customs information and destination guides. Should you be traveling more than 100 miles from home, Global Assist provides extra services. These include help for a lost passport, translation requests, missing luggage, and emergency legal and medical referrals. As the cardholder, you would be responsible for any fees from third-party service providers. Fortunately, you may be able to charge these to the credit card.
Sign Up Benefits
Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Credit Card allows you to pay off part or your entire bill with a Statement Credit offered as a sign-on bonus.
For example, you have a credit card which offered a $200 statement credit. In order to get it, you have to make purchases totaling $1000 or more within the first 90 days of opening the card. You spend $1100. When you get your credit card statement for the month following the introductory period, your bill will be reduced by $200. So if your credit card bill is $500, you will only have to pay $300.
Once approved for this credit card, you may get Welcome Points that you can use for other benefits. These include travel, high-end merchandise, discounts, or bill credits. Each card has different requirements for using the points.
