In many cases, credit cards will seek to take advantage of sports fans by branding their programs with the logos of specific teams.
In one recent program, the NFL Extra Points Credit Card gives fans from coast to coast the chance to sign up to display pride in their favorite teams and also give them opportunities to save money as well. The card plan, which has no annual fee and 0 percent intro APR on balance transfers, also gives users the chance to save 20 percent on official items at NFLShop.com. In addition, shoppers can earn 2 points per dollar spent on NFL items.
Credit card users who want to help in the fight against cancer can also make an impact thanks to the “Crucial Catch” program sponsored by Barclaycard, which will donate money each time a payment is made with the card at a credit card terminal or online.
Financial intuitions have been competing to attract consumers with all sorts of programs. In a recent ranking of best rewards packages, Consumer Reports stated that the top three cash rewards cards were Fidelity Rewards American Express, Capital One Cash Rewards and American Express Blue Cash Preferred.Back To Blog
