2Use a linked Bank of America business debit card, business credit card or business charge card to make at least $250 in net new purchases each statement/billing cycle and Bank of America will waive the monthly fee on your Business Fundamentals account. In addition to the primary business debit, credit or charge card, linked employee cards also count toward the monthly spend threshold. Credit or charge card spend is evaluated at the end of your Business Fundamentals account statement cycle, and the assessment of whether you met the spend threshold is based on the immediately preceding completed billing cycle of the credit/charge card account. For example, if your credit/charge card account cycles early in the month and your checking account cycles late in the month, qualifying credit or charge card purchases made in early March would be counted towards waiving your April checking monthly fee. Purchases must be made on only one of either the debit, the credit or the charge card accounts; purchases on any combination of cards cannot be combined to reach the monthly spend threshold. The following transactions do not qualify: a) ATM transactions; b) refunds, returns or other adjustments; c) cash advances or purchases of cash-like items, such as money orders, traveler's cheques, foreign currency, cashier's checks, gaming chips, and other similar instruments and things of value; d) account funding transactions, including transfers to open or fund deposits, escrow or brokerage accounts and purchase of stored value cards. NOTE: The waiver applies only when the owner of the Business Fundamentals account and the owner of the linked product share the same Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Purchases must post to your account to qualify.
3Eligible business accounts include Business Fundamentals, Business Interest Checking, Business Interest Maximizer ™ Savings, Platinum Business Interest Maximizer ™ Savings, Business Investment Account Savings, and Business CD accounts.
