Over the Past 60 Days!
This is an overview of the REI Mastercard, which apparently used to be referred to as REI Platinum Mastercard. (There is a different REI Mastercard known as the REI World Elite Mastercard, for which you need a higher credit score.)
If you are a loyal customer of REI, this card may deserve serious consideration because it offers easy ways to earn REI rewards.
You earn 5% back on purchases at REI stores; 2% back on groceries (through March 31, 2017); and 1% back on everything else. Make a purchase with your new REI MasterCard within 60 days of card approval and you will also receive a $100 gift card as a sign-up incentive.
You must be an REI member to apply, but if you are not a big fan of REI it wouldn’t make sense to carry this card anyway, since all of the rewards go toward purchases and benefits at REI stores. But an REI lifetime membership is only $20 and entitles you to other special benefits.
The APR on purchases or balance transfers is 11.24% to 23.24% based on your creditworthiness, and for cash advances the APR is 24.24%. There is an additional surcharge on balance transfers of 3% of the amount of each transfer or $5 minimum, whichever is greater.
Similarly, there is a surcharge on cash advances of 4% of the amount of each advance or $5 minimum, whichever is greater. The fee for foreign transactions or foreign cash advances at an ATM is 2% for transactions in U.S. Dollars or 3% for transactions denominated in a foreign currency.
