Alliant 2.5% Credit Card to Rollout Nationwide in April
Alliant recently lauched a credit card that offers 2.5% flat cash back on all purchases and no foreign transaction fees. There is a $59 annual fee, waived the first year. The first year also gets a bonus cash back rate of 3% on all purchases instead of 2.5%.
Currently, the card is only available via phone application or by upgrading an existing card. And it’s only available to Alliant members.
Starting in April it will become available for all, as heard by Milestomemories from a bank representative.
The card currently is in a “soft launch” for select Alliant members, but it will be available to all starting in April (just a couple weeks away!).
The truth is that it’s easy to become a member by making a $10 donation. That said, to save the $10 cost, non-members can simply wait a few weeks and apply when it goes public. I imagine many people are considering this card; I certainly am.
It seems likely that once it rolls out fully there will be an online application link as well, but that’s just speculation on my part.
It’s really amazing how the market keeps pushing up the stakes. Only a few short years ago, getting 2% was difficult; now the bar is getting pushed up to 2.5% with the Allliant card and the USAA card.
