Disney and Chase to Continue Co-Branding Partnership
The Walt Disney Company and Chase Card Services recently announced that they will continue their longstanding relationship, extending their co-branded Disney Visa Card, Disney Premier Visa Card and Disney Visa Debit Card programs in a multi-year agreement.
The Chase and Disney relationship “spans nearly 15 years,” said Leslie Gillin, president of co-brand credit cards at Chase. “It’s an honor to work with such a distinguished brand known throughout the world for creating happiness.”
The perks of having a Disney credit card include saving on park admission, at Disney stores and at DisneyStore.com. Cardholders get exclusive opportunities to take photos with Disney characters at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. The card comes in a choice of several unique designs featuring beloved Disney characters, and cardholders earn Disney Reward Dollars on all purchases they make with the card. These rewards can be redeemed toward nearly any Disney purchase.
The benefits of a co-branded card
Having a co-branded credit card comes in handy when you spend a large amount of money in a certain place, or with a particular merchant. The Disney suite of credit cards is excellent for a family that often visits Disney, or even visits once but spends a chunk of change while they are there.
However, if you prefer to earn rewards everywhere you spend money, a cash back card is often a better choice. For example, if you usually fly one airline, such as United or Virgin American, it might be a good idea to get a co-branded credit card for one of those airlines. However, if you are not loyal to one particular airline and simply fly whichever one has a better deal at the moment, then a cash back travels rewards card that offers flexible rewards could offer greater value.
Co-branded cards are available for hotels, airlines, gas stations, and more. They do not always give a low APR, a balance transfer offer, or other benefits you can expect from a more general cash back rewards card. Nonetheless, they can offer high value rewards. The best of both worlds is to have more than one credit card, so you can always have a choice of payment methods and earn the most possible rewards.
