Chase Card Services, the co-brand credit card issuer in the US, and United Airlines has launched a no annual fee credit card to reward leisure travelers, the company said.
The UnitedSM TravelBank Card allows customers to earn 2% on UnitedÂ® purchases and 1.5% on all other purchases in TravelBank cash — and to redeem it toward United flights.
The United TravelBank Card is similar to cash-back cards as customers earn TravelBank cash, which can then be used toward the cost of a United flight. The card also offers a broad list of additional benefits not widely found in traditional cash-back cards, including no foreign transaction fees, trip cancellation/interruption insurance, auto rental coverage and 25% back as a statement credit on food and beverage purchases onboard United-operated flights. Customers will also have access to exclusive experiences through Inside Access from Chase, voted “Best Credit Card Special Events” platform by Global Traveler.
Even if customers have not earned enough TravelBank cash for the entire price of a United ticket, they can see an immediate benefit. For example, if they have earned USD 75 in TravelBank cash, they can use that toward a USD 200 flight and pay the remaining USD 125 with their United TravelBank Card. TravelBank cash is seamlessly integrated in the checkout process on united.com, allowing customers to redeem for as little as USD 1.
