Bank of America 2/3/4 Rule
- Max of 2 Bank of America cards every 2 months
- Max of 3 Bank of America cards every 12 months (1 year)
- Max of 4 Bank of America cards every 24 months (2 years)
*months considered on a rolling basis
For example, if you apply for a card on August 1, 2017, that's considered card #1. If you apply for another card on September 1, 2017, then that's card #2.
If you try to apply for another card from September 2-30, then it will result in an automatic rejection because of the "2 cards in 2 months" rule.
If you apply on October 1, 2017 (or afterward), then the application will pass the "2 cards in 2 months" rule, but it's still subject to the "3 in 12 months" and "4 in 24 months" rules.
Bank of America is implementing the 2/3/4 rule in two different ways:
- Automatic rejection if you're disqualified by a rule
- Bank of America will approve the application and send the card to you, but you'll receive an "approved in error" message at a future date, and they'll automatically cancel your card
When the application is "approved in error," the card won't show up on your credit report.
