America’s Christian Credit Union Visa Signature Credit Card 62,500 Points, Worth $625 [Restricted Membership]
Update 7/7/19: Deal is back and valid until August 31st, 2019. Hat tip to reader Cody
America’s Christian Credit Union is offering a bonus of up to 62,500 when you open a new Visa Signature credit card. Let’s take a look at this card in more detail.
- Sign up bonus of 62,500 points is broken down as follows:
- Receive 10,000 bonus rewards points upon card issuance
- Receive 2,500 bonus rewards points on first transaction
- Receive 50,000 bonus rewards points if you spend $3,000 in the first 90 days
- No annual fee
- Card earns at the following rates:
- Earn 1.25 points per $1 spent on purchases
- Earn 2.50 points per $1 spent at charitable organizations
- 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first six months
- A portion of every purchase is also directed to ministries (isn’t clear what percentage). Slightly more information here.
- $3 fee is charged if you receive paper statements
How Much Are Points Worth
This page shows that the points earned are actually CUREWARDS points. I believe points are worth 1¢ each when redeeming for statement credit, although you need to redeem a minimum of 5,000 points at a time. The points earned are CU Rewards points, these can be redeemed for flights. I know you used to be able to get additional value on flights (more on that here) but I don’t think that’s available anymore.
Becoming A Member
Membership is restricted and you need to complete a statement of faith to be able to join. Full details here. Primarily, churches, ministries, and schools aligned with Wesleyan Christian doctrine and their ministers, employees, members/attendees, officers, teachers, students, and others associated with these organizations qualify for membership.
This isn’t the first time we covered America’s Credit Union, they also offer a 4% APY 1 year CD to new members as well that is worth considering. This credit card bonus looks great, seems to be $625 in cash value for only $3,000 in spend. The downside is the restrictive membership requirements. If you are eligible it’s definitely a card worth at least considering. I know some readers will find the restrictive membership unfair, but unfortunately that’s life. Let’s try to keep the comments for discussing the actual deal, rather than the membership requirements themselves.
