VIENNA, Va. (October 5, 2021) – Navy Federal Credit Union today announced an upgrade to its cashRewards credit card, giving new and existing cardholders more cash back on every purchase. The credit card will now offer unlimited 1.75% cash back on every purchase for cardholders who maintain direct deposit at Navy Federal. Additionally, new cardholders who spend $2,500 within 90 days of opening an account will receive $250 bonus cash back.
“When it comes to ease and flexibility of use, nothing beats the simplicity of the cashRewards card,” said Justin Zeidman, head of credit card products at Navy Federal. “With this upgrade, we give members the opportunity to earn even more cash back on all their purchases and further demonstrate the value that comes from making Navy Federal their trusted financial partner.”
The enhanced earn rate is applied automatically for cardholders with direct deposit, and members will earn cash back at a rate of 1.75% for as long as they maintain their direct deposit at Navy Federal. Otherwise, cardholders will continue to earn the previously offered unlimited 1.5% cash back. New and current cardholders without direct deposit can qualify for the 1.75% earn rate by simply moving their direct deposit to Navy Federal.
