Switch from BofA to FNBO

When Amtrak switches from BofA to FNBO mastercard, can I get a new enrollment bonus even though I previously got one (last year) from B of A? I just cancelled my BofA card, to avoid paying the annual fee. But I would be happy to sign up for a FNBO card and get another enrollment bonus, if the points offered are sufficient to justify the hard pull. Thanks.

Even though I cancelled my B of A card weeks ago... I still got a notification by mail a few days ago that my new card is on the way.

The new credit card has been an underwhelming experience, so far.
The activation sticker leaves a residue when it's removed.
I realize there isn't online access until 10/23 but if you go to the link they provided, you get a 404 error. At least they could clean that up.
The activation call asks for your income immediately, presumably to raise your credit line.

The new card is definitely the flimsiest physical card I've seen in a long while.

Does FNBO plan to ever offer this card to new applicants?

AFAIK, mine still hasn't arrived. I am a current holder of the no-annual-fee version of the BoA card.

Thanks. I have the fee based one. I have a piece of mail in my informed delivery today with no image. Hoping it's that. Not sure who I'd even call at this point; the calls I've heard about with FNBO seem to be with reps who don't know anything yet.

I did the same At first, BofA did not want to reverse my annual fee (although the bill reflecting that fee was not yet due). They said it had been posted earlier. I told them I do not care when it was posted, I am not paying it, and if they would like they can sue me for the $79. (I was annoyed because of the very long hold time to speak with an agent, so I may not have been my usual friendly and chipper self). They then agreed to waive the fee and close the account.

We'll see what enrollment offer FNBO offers.

These are slightly annoying features IMO. Far worse is the inexplicable failure to print the cardholders AGR number on the card. It wont affect me much, but its such an obvious (and essentially cost-free) detail that would be helpful to many customers.

to be fair, they warned you not to remove it till the 23rd 😛. On a more serious note I found that a little bit of goo gone did the trick.

Looking forward to spending an hour tomorrow changing all my autopay numbers (I did finally receive the new card).

Haha. I actually did the same with Goo Gone.
