NFCU improving rewards

Postby irvinfitness » Wed Mar 05, 2014 1:15 pm

Just got an email from NFCU allowing me to select one category for 3% cash back from April-December of 2014 with the cashRewards card.

Categories were not great (gas, grocery, restaurants/fast food), so it is not a huge addition. Unfortunately, I'm covered in these categories.

Gas: 5% rotating (Freedom/It/Dividend), 2% Amex BCE
Grocery: 3% Amex BCE
Restaurants/Fast Food: 5% USBank Cash+

So I selected Gas to give me the extra 1% over the BCE, but if you have BCP and Cash+, then this 3% would be useless to you.

It's nice to know NFCU is trying though. They just improved their website and now they are rolling this out. Combine that with my highest CL and they will continue to stay in my wallet for years to come.
[size=60]Chase Freedom Signature - 10k (rotating 5%)
Citi Platinum Select - 8.1k (rotating 5%)
Discover It - 12k (rotating 5%)
AMEX BCE - 20k (Groceries 3% / Gas 2% )
Regions Signature Visa - 5k

Navy Federal cashRewards Visa Signature - 20k (Business Purchases)
Care Credit - 6k (Vet Bills/Dentist - 0% APR)
Chase IHG Rewards (Priority Club) - 18k (Annual Night Certificate, Platinum Elite Status)

Alright, I see the potential for some though... because there are no FT fees, so this would be great for overseas gas or groceries.

Considering it is NFCU, many of the clients are active duty military and will be overseas, so this could be great for them.
