Review

Diehard NFL fans who spend a fair amount at the games and on their favorite team merch will enjoy the no-fee NFL Extra Points Credit Card’s 20% savings at the online NFL shop and 2X the points on NFL and team purchases. This card is ideal if you’re using it with an eye toward NFL-related purchases — like saving up for a playoff game. If that’s in your playbook, then have at it.

There’s also a nice sign-up bonus of 10,000 bonus points, worth $100 when you spend $500 within the first 90 days of opening the account. Plus, you can customize your card with the logo from your favorite NFL team. Love the San Francisco 49ers? Are your the sort to paint your fqce green for a New York Jets game? If the sight of Washington Redskins merch makes your heart go pitter-patter, the NFL Extra Points Credit Card has a team card for you.

But there are other rewards cards that will earn you greater rewards across a broader range of categories. And you should use another rewards card with a better rate then the NFL card’s 1X points per $1 spent on all other spending.

Make sure you don’t fumble and use this card for balance transfers — the 15-month 0% APR offer comes with a $5 or 3% balance transfer fee, whichever is greater. You can score a better balance transfer card offer. You should also skip the introductory 6-month 0% APR financing offer for tickets. It’s a play that offers little benefit.
