AP online purchase using Bank of america cash rewards card

AP online purchase using Bank of america cash rewards card

Has anyone made a purchase on Tesla.com with a bank of america cash rewards card? One of the categories to get 3% is online shopping, hoping the AP upgrade would fall under this category so I could maximize cash back..

I just looked at the example vendors today and didn't see Tesla. Do you have an EDC you could use that does 2%?

I chatted with a BoA rep who said its all about merchant category code which is determined by Tesla, not bank of America. Best I can get on my other cards would be 1.5% My AMEX lists my supercharger charges as Transportation, but thats a different charge than an online purchase. I wish the key cards were in stock, id buy one with this card to see how it comes in..

Yes, it works. I got 3% back when I bought basic AP last year. Also on my deposit for Model Y. YMMV, of course.
