New Marvel MasterCard Offers 3% Cash Back
28 Apr
Comic book fans, rejoice. Now you can carry your favorite Marvel superheroes in your wallet with you. And they’ll even do some heroic feats for you, in the way of earning you cash back on all your purchases.

The new Marvel MasterCard gives 1% cash back on all purchases, and 3% cash back on select dining, entertainment, and Marvel purchases. These include spending at movies, concerts, amusement parks, digital apps, and games, as well as aquariums and restaurants. Online purchases at marvel.com and purchases made an official Marvel merchandise booths also earn 3% cash back for cardholders.

Cash back redemption options are limited, but rewards abound

Cash back rewards are issued as statement credits, with no other redemption options. However, there are some other benefits to the cards, besides being emblazoned with your favorite superheroes.

You’ll get a $25 statement credit after you make your first purchase with the card, as a signup bonus, as 10% off all your MarvelShop.com purchases, as well as free shipping offers during certain times throughout the year.

Tom Quindlen, executive vice president and CEO at Synchrony Financial, issuer of the card, said the company is excited to bring the Marvel credit card experience to fans. “The Marvel MasterCard provides payment flexibility, cashback rewards, and exclusive benefits for cardholders,” said Quindlen. “This new card will bring value to loyal Marvel fans and others who enjoy a cashback program on dining, entertainment, and merchandise.”

Cardholders can choose from one of several card designs, including Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Avengers, and the Hulk. “Marvel fans will undoubtedly be delighted to carry and use these lively card images, and proudly show affinity for their favorite Marvel Super Heroes,” said Marvel’s Joe Quesada. “The card designs creatively represent some of the biggest Marvel heroes.”

Rob Steffens, CFO of Marvel, said the company expects the cards to be a bit with fans who want to save money, earn rewards, and have some Marvel artwork handy at all times.

The fine print, for fans

There is no annual fee for the card, and interest rates on purchases range from 15.24% to 25.24%, depending on creditworthiness. There is a 3% foreign transaction fee for purchases made internationally, and a 29.99% APR on cash advances.

Anyone who wants to travel overseas might want to look for a card that doesn’t have a foreign transaction fee, and if you plan to ever carry a balance, a card with a 0% APR on purchases for the first year might be a better choice. Still, for hardcore Marvel superhero fans, this card will surely be a hit.
