The Bank Of America Travel Rewards Card for Students could help pay for those pricey flights home over the holidays
bank of america travel card for students

If you already subscribe to The Navigator, you might have seen that airfares for Christmas and Thanksgiving are soaring. If you’re a college student or have one considering the trip home for Thanksgiving, it might be worth checking out the Bank of America Travel Rewards for Students Card.

At a base level, it’s an excellent card for building credit and starting fledgling users on their points journey. But for immediate value, the 25,000-point intro bonus could help counter those rising flight prices. While it doesn’t transfer to airline loyalty programs, the points can be redeemed for a $250 statement credit for travel.

Here’s an idea of the cheapest round-trip flight costs on Thanksgiving weekend to see how big a dent that $250 can make:

  • New York to Los Angeles Roundtrip – $319

  • Seattle to Los Angeles Roundtrip – $248

  • Nashville to Miami Roundtrip – $240

  • Chicago to Charlotte – $204

You’ll need to spend $1000 before then to grab the bonus, but if that’s on the cards, you could easily cover a flight home and back from around the country. You could even cover a checked bag on that Chicago flight with a cheap airline. You’ll also enjoy 1.5 points per dollar on every purchase. Not bad at all.
