(LOS ANGELES, May 15, 2007) -The Automobile Club of Southern California is introducing a new credit card that will allow users to earn 1% cash back on all their purchases, with no annual limits on cash rebates and no annual fee.
"Our members have overwhelmingly indicated to us that cash rebates are the preferred type of credit card reward," said Wendy Sabins, senior vice president for marketing products and services. "Cardholders will earn one point for every dollar spent on net retail purchases using the AAA Cash Rewards MasterCard credit card and will be eligible to redeem their first reward, after collecting 2,500 points."
The AAA Cash Rewards credit card will give cardholders cash back for their everyday purchases including grocery store, restaurant and gasoline purchases; providing members with multiple options to save money as they accumulate points on everything they buy.
Members may obtain applications for the AAA Cash Rewards MasterCard credit card, provided by Bank of America, in all 75 Auto Club offices throughout Southern California, or members can apply by calling (800) 545-7899 and providing the priority code: FABCKT.
The Auto Club will continue to offer its AAA Gas Rebate Visa credit card, which provides monthly cash rebates of up to 5 percent on all gasoline purchases made at the pump with the credit card. AAA Gas Rebate Visa cardholders have the option to keep their current credit card, request the Cash Rewards credit card and use both cards, or request the Cash Rewards credit card only.
