Bank of America Offers Customers Free Museum Admission Nationwide

It is no secret that interest rates at banks are generally low in today's economy. However, your bank may help make up for it by offering you other perks. Bank of America's Museums on Us program is a perfect example.

It can be disheartening to look at the interest rates offered by most of the banks in today's economy. However, your bank could be offering other perks that may help cheer you up, despite the generally low interest rates. Bank of America’s Museums on Us program is a perfect example.   

If you take your Bank of America (or a Merrill Lynch) debit or credit card to participating museums, zoos, science centers, and botanical gardens, you can get free general admission on the first full weekend of every month. For example, that means on July 2nd and 3rd you can take your pick of participating local museums and visit it for free. The Bank of America customer must bring a photo ID and free admission is limited to the cardholder only, but it can still save you a lot of money—especially if you take full advantage of all of the museums available to you. There are approximately 150 museums nationwide that participate in this program.

As an example in the Boston area, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts normally costs $20 for a regular adult admission. The Boston MFA participates in the Bank of America program, so the cardholder would get in free. This museum also offers free admission to children under 17 on the weekends, so your entire group may be able  get in free if it’s just the cardholder and children (depending on the museum’s policy). If you’re married and both you and your spouse have a Bank of America debit or credit card in your individual names, then you would both get in free.

If you happen to live in (or are visiting) New York City, you can get into places like the Bronx Zoo, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the New York Aquarium for free on the first full weekend of the month. The full list of free attractions is available here.

If you’re not a Bank of America customer, check with your financial institution to see if there are any hidden perks or discounts you may be able to get as a customer. It can help soften the blow of low interest rates in a bad economy.
