Does the meter disappear if you've already spent your $100? I'm trying to figure out whether I've used the credit for this year and I've seen the meter before, but can't find it now to save my life.

It does not disappear on my end. You can find it from stanj comment below. Similarly you can find it on the mobile BofA app. Click the card and scroll pass the 'Pay', 'All transactions', 'Track Spending'. Then under the 'Premium Rewards ' box, click 'Premium Benefits'. It will take you to the meter, where you can see your activity for this year.

I know BoA will let you have two cash rewards cards at the same time, but I assume you have one currently, then product change another to the Cash rewards to then have two? Reason I ask is because I have the Premium Rewards and a Cash Rewards, but would ultimately like two Cash rewards but figure the best approach is to product change my Premium to Cash, then have two Cash rewards momentarily, and then apply for a new Premium card a month (or longer) later? Is it 24 months between SU bonuses for Premium? It just seems to make sense when using a hard pull and SUB to use it on the Premium which is greater SUB than the Cash?

I hold a premium and two cash rewards at present.

1) Product changed Alaska visa card to cash rewards.

2) Applied for a new Premium card (never had one before)

3) Product changed ancient Power Rewards mastercard to an MLB card.

All this more or less back to back earlier this year.

I belive mine came through within a day after the charge went from pending to finalized - definitely not a wait until the end of the statement period.

I see, so it appears that like Chase, you can product change to get two of the same card? I have Premium and Cash rewards now. I'd like two cash rewards and one premium, so I guess I need to convert my premium (had longer than 12 months) to a cash rewards and then apply for the premium?

Successfully received BoA premium rewards travel credit for Delta seat fees (economy/main to preferred/main on Delta.com via desktop). DELTA AIR Seat Fees Delta.com CA charged on 8/7 and posted on 8/9. Then Card Travel Credits posted automatically on 8/14 (transaction date 8/12 and only showed once posted)

There are multiple versions of the Cash Rewards card. Get a Susan G. Komen or U.S. Pride card if you want a second. Unless you really want to apply for the Premium Rewards card again and see if they'll give you the signup bonus a second time.

The idea is that if I'm going to take a pull, get the premium, and then use my current premium on Jan 1 to get the $100 incidentals and then convert to Cash rewards once that posts. I essentially wind up with two cash rewards cards while getting the $100 incidentals, and the delta on the SUB between cash and premium as "extra." Obviously with what's been announced for November I'll be waiting until the info about the Honors program(s) look like before I apply for anything BoA related.
