This is a new credit card that Holland America Line (the cruise company) and Barclays came out with yesterday. It gives 1% back in points you can use to buy a cruise. Do they really think Americans are this dumb to fall for this? What is the point of only getting 1% cashback in rewards so you can then take that and use it to buy a cruise.
wouldn't any other regular 1% cashback credit card do the same thing? You take the cashback and buy the cruise, plane ticket, or whatever else you want.
They really need to stop coming out with pointless reward cards like this Holland America Line Visa. Carnival Cruise is their main cruiseline. Do you really want to earn low 1% rewards so you can go buy a cruise on Carnival and get sick from food poisoning? I know I don't.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
