Navy Federal Credit Union has launched an enhanced version of its Visa Signature Flagship Rewards card perfect for travelers and commuters. The upgraded card now offers a 50,000-point sign-up bonus, 3 points per dollar on all travel-related purchases – including train rides, cruises, amusement parks and ride sharing – and two points per dollar on everything else. Additionally, new cardholders will not be charged an annual fee during the first year of card membership.
The 50,000-point bonus and waived annual fee offers are available to individuals who apply by Dec. 31, 2018.

Why use it?
Along with a valuable sign-up bonus and a 3-point bonus on all travel-related purchases, the Flagship Rewards card gives cardholders access to Visa Signature perks, including 24/7 concierge service, roadside dispatch, lost luggage reimbursement and more.
|Estimated Yearly Rewards Value ($15,900 spend)
After the first year, cardholders will incur an annual fee of $49. However, the card’s yearly rewards value more than makes up for the fee: We estimate that the average person who spends $15,900 annually on food, gas, clothing and general purchases can get $465 worth of value from the card’s rewards each year.
Are you eligible?
To apply for an NFCU credit card, you must be a member of Navy Federal Credit Union, which is only open to servicemembers, veterans, DoD civilians and immediate family members of eligible individuals. Here is a detailed list of who this includes:
|Service members and veterans||DoD civilians||Family members|
Should you apply now?
With its enhanced benefits and limited-time sign-up bonus, now is a great time to apply for the NFCU Flagship card. Just be sure to apply by Dec. 31, 2018, to take advantage of the 50,000-point bonus and waived annual fee.
If you are an existing NFCU Flagship cardholder, you will automatically be upgraded to the new offer on Sept. 5, 2018. You can just continue to use your current card and card number as usual, and you will receive the 3-point bonus on travel purchases and enhanced perks. You will receive a new card upon request or when your current card expires.
