A few months ago, I mentioned how I had applied for the BBVA NBA credit card. The BBVA NBA credit card had an increased signup bonus of 20,000 points (good for a $200 statement credit) after meeting the minimum spend, but the main reason I applied for the BBVA NBA credit card was that it gives 5% off ALL purchases during NBA All Star Weekend as well as during the NBA Finals. For 2016, the NBA All Star game is today, but the 5% should be on all purchases for the weekend (Friday through Sunday) so hopefully you’ve been hitting it hard already!
Analysis from my All Star weekend with the BBVA NBA credit card
I probably could have maximized things on my BBVA NBA credit card a little better, but I have done a few gift card purchases at my local grocery and drug stores. Last year, there was a limit of $5,000 per day, but per Doctor of Credit, that has been raised to $10K this year.
There HAVE been some reports that gift card purchases made on the BBVA NBA credit card did not manually credit last summer, and I believe the terms do say that gift cards or other cash equivalents are not considered qualifying purchases (see this Doctor of Credit post)
Now let’s hear your BBVA NBA credit card data points
