Before you take out a Bank of America Unlimited Cash Rewards credit card cash advance, it’s important to note that it is a very expensive transaction. For starters, a cash advance fee and a separate cash advance APR apply as soon as you withdraw the cash. There may be ATM-owner fees, too.
The Bank of America cash advance fee is either 3% or 5% of the amount withdrawn, with a $10 minimum. Whether you get charged a 3% or 5% BofA cash advance fee depends on how you get your cash. If it’s from an ATM, for example, you pay 5%. But if you get it as a direct deposit to your bank account in 1-3 business days, you pay 3%.… read full answer
In addition to the Bank of America cash advance fee, you’ll owe interest at a variable rate of 15.99% to 28.99%, depending on how you get a cash advance, your creditworthiness and income. This interest compounds daily. So, each day you’ll owe interest on both the original balance and any interest charged on your cash advance in previous days.
Between the high interest rate and big fee, a BofA cash advance clearly is not good for your wallet.
