So buying a AA gift card counts as airline spend?
It does. I got reimbursed a few days ago.

Yes. It goes to your account. The airline incidental credit itself pays for the annual fee. With the platinum honors this earns a good amount for everyday spend. At the 75 bonus for Platinum Honors it is 2.625 back. Not too shabby for everyday spend but that is assuming you qualify for the Platinum Honors tier.
Travel and Dining are 2% back so I get 3.5% on these with Platinum Honors.

I got this card recently. As I qualify for premier platinum status with BOA, I see multiple benefits.


Negatives
I would not buy for $0 Foreign Transaction fee. I tested it with a $50 Foreign transaction. They took more than 10% in conversion rate which is a rip off. $0 transaction fee saves a bit. Depending on transaction you may be better off not using this card for Foreign transactions
I have to report a different experience. Are you sure its BoFA who took 10% ? For foreign transactions just make sure to indicate that your card currency is the Seller's currency so that BoFA does the conversion. If you just pay default in dollars its the merchant bank abroad who actually makes the conversion. I often use this card to buy on European Amazon sites and always select Euro as my card's currency - BoFA always uses the exact published conversion rate, in some cases it was even a few pennies better!.

What are you talking about on the conversion rate? They don't charge any foreign transaction fees. I've used this card in Canada and Europe. I'm always charged the current exchange rate posted by the WSJ.
Exactly, even in his post he said tested $50 foreign transaction - so it was the foreign bank who made the exchange, not BoFA.

Not worth keeping unless you keep $100k in your Bank of America brokerage account. If you do have your investment with BoA, it is worth keeping for the effective 2.625% back on anything unlimited which I believe cannot be beaten using only a single card.
3.5% on Travel and Dining as these categories are 2% regular.

There are much much better Travel and Dining cards.

For example:

Amex Gold is 4 points or 8% back on global dining.

CSR is 3 points or ~6% back on global travel.

And even if you don't travel- the Uber card gets you 4% on dining with both no annual fee and no requirement to park 100k at BoA.

Who "parks" $100K? The money is in Merril Edge and I get 100 free stock and ETF trades every month.

well...anybody who wants the bonus reward rate does.

Merrill isn't the worst place to put $, but it's not necessarily the best (hugely YMMV by person-way beyond scope of thread- but point is you don't need to do that at all to get a higher reward rate with a different card)

How do you become platinum honors? Hitting spending targets?

Have at least $100,000 sitting in BoA owned accounts (most common way is in a Merrill lynch account of some kind since BoA owns them)

I think they check the balance on the 4th or the 5th of the month. So maybe early next month you'll get something.
Based on my calculations, it's the 4th business day of the month
