Review: MLB Credit Card

Major League Baseball, in partnership with Bank of America, offers MLB credit cards for every team. But other than a team logo on the front, the card seems to be seriously uninteresting for baseball fans. Our overview / review of the card is below:

The MLB Cash Rewards Visa is simply the Bank of America Cash Rewards Visa with your team’s logo slapped onto the front of the card. It is perplexing why Bank of America would form an alliance with Major League Baseball that is so full of possibilities and then have the most boring tie-in possible with its credit card.

But wait. Bank of America used to offer the MLB Extra Bases Credit Card that was pretty awesome. You could earn points and get MLB memorabilia, game tickets, experiences like throwing out a first pitch, and more. But that has been shut down as of this writing.

So, as of now, we are left with an OK cash back credit card with your baseball team’s logo on the front. Yawn.

We’re not sure why you’d want this, since there are better cash back credit cards on the market, but, if you choose, this card will give you 1% cash back on all your purchases, and also 3% back on gas and 2% back on grocery and warehouse club purchases.

As we write this, it is the off-season for MLB, so maybe they are cooking up a better offering, but for now we can only say, “Come on, Bank of America, you can do better.”
