There’s a credit card for nearly everyone, and that includes sports fans. Passionate sports fans want to show their support for their favorite sports or teams with just about everything they do, including making purchases with a credit card. But a sports-themed credit card can do more than just announce to the world that you’re a super fan. Along with the many benefits credit cards offer in general, here are a few other pluses a sports-themed credit card may offer.
It Looks Cool: Citing a credit card’s aesthetics as a benefit may seem like a bit of a stretch, but let’s face it, human beings like things that look cool. If credit cards were 100% about functionality, then there’d be no reason to offer them in any color/design variations other than basic black or white. But credit cards are available in thousands of designs and color combinations because people actually care how their cards look.
Many credit card issuers offer sports- or team-themed designs. Why is that? Because that’s what many card members (and potential card members) want, and card issuers are in the business of trying to make card members happy so they’ll stay card members. Sports- and team-themed credit cards with cool designs help card issuers accomplish this mission.
It Gives You Access to Exclusive Benefits: Some sports-themed credit cards provide card members with discounts and other benefits they won’t get with any other card. For example, the aforementioned Vegas Golden Knights credit card offers card members exclusive deals, discounts, and experiences when they use their card for select purchases. Credit One Bank also offers two World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE®) credit cards—WWE® Superstar Credit Card and WWE® Champion Credit Card—both of which offer access to exclusive promotions for WWE Credit Card members.††
For hardcore sports fans, a sports- or team-themed credit card can be a good way to announce to the world who you root for every time you use it. It can also earn you rewards and other benefits for being a card member. So, if you’re looking to show your colors and take advantage of fan benefits not likely to be offered by more run-of-the-mill cards, look into applying for a credit card that celebrates your favorite sport or team.
