I had sock drawered my BOA credit card for almost a year and noticed that BankAmeriDeals cash back promos do not seem to be offered to dormant cards. I then used the card for a couple small grocery + restaurant purchases and presto - 4 new cash back offers showed up for grocery stores and restaurants.
Is there a known way to trigger specific offers? When I used my card at a grocery store, an offer for a competing store appeared on my statement directly under my grocery transaction. So, I’m wondering if it might be better to shop at a competing store of the offer you really want to trigger?
Specifically, I’m in the market for some auto parts and have read of people getting a 20% Advance Auto offer.
