NFL Juices Its Extra Points Rewards Card

Barclays offers this Visa credit card with no annual fee.Barclays Bank has freshened up its NFL Extra Points Visa rewards credit card just as teams are beginning the playoff push.

New customers will now get a one-time bonus of 10,000 points after their first purchase or balance transfer. That’s five times the previous 2,000-points bonus.

The bank says 10,000 points are enough for an official NFL replica team jersey.

Here’s a look at the credit card details:

APR 13.74%, 17.74% or 22.74% variable (prime rate of 3.25% plus 10.49% to 19.49%) depending on your credit worthiness. 0% on balance transfers for first 15 months. 0% financing for six months on game ticket purchases of $500 or more.
National Average APR 14.99% (source:
Annual Fee None
Rewards One point per dollar. 10,000 bonus points after first purchase or balance transfer, enough for a team jersey.
Verdict Barclays Bank recently increased the up-front points bonus and extended the 0% balance transfer offer on this card. But what makes this card a strong bet for sports fans is the free financing on game tickets.

Barclays also has extended to 15 months its introductory 0% APR offer on balance transfers. It had been six months.

The balance transfer fee is a low 3% during the intro period, 4% after that.

Point values remain the same. You earn one point for every dollar you spend on the card. You can redeem your points as soon as you earn 2,500 points, or $25.

Points can be redeemed for NFL merchandise, collectibles and NFL-based experiences and gift cards. You can also redeem them for cash in the form of a statement credit.

Sample point values: 2,800 points for a hat, 3,100 for a T-shirt, 25,000 for two regular season tickets (depending on availability, of course) and 400,000 points for the Super Bowl VIP Experience.

You can also redeem your points for sideline passes, game tickets, Super Bowl tickets, coach “chalk talks” and more.

There’s no limit on how many points you can earn and no maximum on the number of points you can redeem in any billing cycle. Points expire after 48 months.

You also get 20% off every purchase at

In addition, cardholders are eligible for special promotional financing for NFL game ticket purchases.

When you use your card to buy NFL game tickets at participating team ticket offices, you can get 0% financing for six months on transactions of $500 or more.

You are required to make on-time payments during that period. If you don’t pay off the balance in full during that time, you will be charged your applicable purchase APR for the entire promotional period.
