Fees

Annual Fee

The Bank of America Premium Rewards Card annual fee is $95. This is in-line with most basic reward cards. The card comes with an annual $100 airline credit, so that takes care of the annual fee if you're able to use it. Adding on Global Entry/TSA perk and the bonus categories, you should be able to easily justify this annual fee.

Authorized User Fee

The authorized user fee for the Bank of America Premium Reward Card is $0. If you have friends or family that spend in travel and dining, I would recommend adding them as authorized users on the card.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The Bank of America Premium Rewards Card does not have a foreign transaction fee. This means you can earn Travel Reward Points at the same great rate worldwide without being penalized for transactions outside of the United States.

and Card Value Calculator
