A couple of days ago, Norwegian Air, Norway’s largest airline and the ninth-largest low-cost airline in the world, announced a rollout of their new no annual fee credit card in the United States. The airline currently operates direct flights from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Florida, and Boston to Europe and the United Kingdom. Therefore, this movement is fully justified.

Now it is already possible to apply for the Norwegian Reward World Mastercard® credit card at the Norwegian website. The card is issued by Synchrony Bank on the Mastercard payment network. Synchrony is already well known as one of the largest providers of private label and co-branded credit cards in the U.S. They currently offer more than 100 credit card options including two PayPal Mastercard credit cards, the Banana Republic Visa, the BP Visa® Credit Card, the Sam’s Club Mastercard and Store Cards, and the Amazon Prime Store Card. But for Norwegian, it is the first credit card experience in the U.S.

Besides the $0 annual fee, the new Norwegian Reward Card comes with no foreign transaction fees and 19.74%, 23.74% or 27.74% Variable purchase APR. The credit card can serve as a worthy addition to the Norwegian Reward loyalty program since it uses the same rewards currency – CashPoints. See what benefits cardholders can also get:

  • 2% on Norwegian purchases, dining, and grocery;
  • 1% on all other purchases;
  • $50 in CashPoints after spending $500 in the first 90 days;
  • Anniversary bonus of $100 in CashPoints, provided you spend $20,000 or more during a year;
  • CashPoints redemption at any time for all Norwegian flights with no blackout dates and no minimum spending requirement;
  • Double CashPoints expiration period;
  • Priority boarding;
  • 24/7 Mastercard Global Service;
  • 24/7 Mastercard ID Theft Protection;
  • Mastercard Airport Concierge to save 15% on Airport Meet and Greet Services at over 700 destinations worldwide.

Kristin Møllerplass, Norwegian’s head of Loyalty and Engagement, describes the new card in the following way: “It focuses on aspirational travelers who might not currently save money for their trips, but by using the Norwegian Reward card will be able to earn a trip to Europe every year by putting their regular spend on the card. And on the other end, the card will provide our frequent travelers in the U.S. with even more benefits and greater earning potentials.”

To sum up, just like other airline credit cards, the Norwegian Reward credit card is aimed at this very airline’s frequent flyers. If you are not among those and want to gain profit from other travel and everyday purchases, consider general travel rewards credit cards.
