Four More Reasons to Choose an SMCU VISA with CU Rewards

SMCU’s VISA® credit card is a great deal compared to other credit cards. It offers lower rates and fewer fees than cards issued by national credit-card companies. SMCU’s credit card also comes with a great no-charge rewards system, CU Rewards®. For every dollar you charge to your SMCU credit card you get one CU Rewards point, even more if you take advantage of the CU Rewards Mall.

While you can redeem your rewards points for great brand-name merchandise, CU Rewards really shines when you use it for travel rewards.

Earn Free Travel Just By Using your SMCU VISA Credit Card

As you begin to build your points balance, you can start redeeming them for free and discounted travel. Use your points to book a free flight to the lights of Las Vegas for a weekend getaway or for a seven-day cruise to see the magnificent glaciers of Alaska.

You can redeem your points for car rentals from Alamo, Hertz or National. Use them to get free nights at great hotels like the Fairmont, Hyatt, Marriott and Ritz-Carlton.

Redeem Points for Unique Experiences

Use your CU Rewards points to buy unforgettable experiences all around the country.

Feel the rush of being behind the wheel of a real stock car in Indianapolis or learn the art of hand crafting indulgent chocolate treats in New York City. If you are a sports fan, CU Rewards can put you in the crowd at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City or in the grandstand for the pageantry of the Kentucky Derby.

Even without leaving the Emerald City you can find once-in-a-lifetime experiences with CU Rewards. Use your points to take a private glass-blowing lesson or tempt your taste buds on a tour of Seattle’s gourmet restaurant scene.

New experiences are added regularly and start at as little as 4,000 points.

Book Travel Directly Through CU Rewards

Even if you aren’t redeeming points for travel, CU Rewards makes it easy to find the best deal on your vacation. CU Rewards is partnered with Montrose Travel. Use them to book flights, hotels, cars, cruises and full vacation packages, just like you would at any other online travel site.

If you don’t see what you are looking for using the online tools, you can pick up the phone and call Montrose directly. They are a fully licensed travel agency with access to some of the best rates and travel packages in the industry.

Earn Double Points By Booking with your SMCU VISA

When you book your non-rewards travel through CU Rewards and pay with your SMCU VISA, you get two points for every dollar you spend. A simple form is all you need to have your double rewards posted to your CU Rewards account.

Get Started on the Road to Free Travel
