PenFed Premium Travel Rewards American Express® Card Voted Best Travel Card in U.S. by Credit.com
ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The financial services, education and news website Credit.com recently named the Premium Travel Rewards American Express® Card as The Best Travel Rewards Credit Card in America.
PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) was the first credit union in the U.S. to offer an American Express® Card to its members. Since its launch in 2009, the PenFed Premium Travel Rewards American Express® Card is now frequently recognized as one of the leading travel reward cards available; offering 25% more value per point than almost all other travel and frequent flier programs when redeeming for airline travel.
Credit.com chose the PenFed Premium Travel Rewards American Express® Card as its top pick for "Best Travel Card" in the U.S. because features such as a new, competitive variable 9.99% purchase and cash advance APR*, no annual or foreign transaction fees, and no caps on the rewards cardmembers can earn—all add up to make the Card a highly competitive contender when compared to many other travel reward card programs currently available in the marketplace. Additionally, cardmembers earn 5 points on airfare purchases and 1 point on all other purchases every time they use the Card.
"PenFed is committed to designing practical products with built in ease, and this Card is a great example of that winning combination," says Kevyn Myers, Executive Vice President, Card Services, PenFed. "When it comes to offering the best rates, the best value, and best selection of financial products and services to its membership, I think PenFed grabs the gold ring every time."
