Known for its no-frills service, flights to under-served destinations (residents of Belleville, Illinois, deserve vacations, too!) and dirt-cheap fares (fly from Belleville, Illinois, to Orlando for under $200!), Allegiant has been targeting bargain-loving travelers for quite some time.
It’s going after the same audience with its new rewards credit card from Bank of America – the Allegiant World MasterCard ($59 annual fee). In fact, this is the first time Allegiant has set foot in the rewards realm (it doesn’t even have a frequent-flier program).
The card may appeal to (and maybe even make financial sense for) a small subset of travelers. But we gave it a low rating because we think most fliers can do better.
