If you’re a fan of the Premier League, you may well have thought about showing your support by carrying one of the many football credit cards that are out there on the market. But what do these cards actually do and how can they help Manchester United?
Most Manchester United fans will relish the idea of being able to bring out a branded card that carries the badge and most of us will also want to know just what kind of incentives our new credit card will offer. You’ll get special discounts on team merchandise and access to prizes that have been set up between the club and the card provider – as well as rewards schemes that can be redeemed later on.
Most teams will have a number of community projects running throughout the year that help support the local area, encourage new talent and help create further investment in the business at a grass roots level. Each time you use your credit card, your provider will make a contribution United at no expense to you. These contributions will be made when you make purchases of any kind, allowing you to do something for the club while you continue to go about your day-to-day business.
One of the great things about the card is that there is no limit on the amount of rewards points you can earn. This means that as you spend, you’ll be accruing points that another card would not offer – then all you need to do is figure out how to spend them. It may be that you want to treat yourself to some special merchandise or travel to an away game at some point in the season. Maybe you fancy making a day of it and visiting the hospitality suite one match day for a meal and a match? Well, all these things could be made easier if you have points to redeem.
Of course, these cards come with all the traditional features of a credit card and you’ll want to seek out one that has online services that allow you to check balances and make transactions. It is also a good idea to check that the APR suits you and that the card offers a decent balance transfer and money transfer rate if that’s important to you.
