Allegiant Air Debuts Rewards Credit Card for Infrequent Fliers

Allegiant Air Debuts Rewards Credit Card for Infrequent Fliers

September 8, 2016         Written By Lynn Oldshue

Allegiant Air is debuting its first travel rewards credit card, now known as the Allegiant World MasterCard. Unlike most travel cards though, this one is geared toward infrequent fliers, the airline’s core customer group.

Allegiant Air uses routes that traditional airlines do not use in order to make their tickets as affordable as possible. They also work with airports in smaller cities, and 80% of their customers only book one or two flights per year. The new rewards program falls in line with their customers’ needs.

Users can earn three points per $1 spent on Allegiant products, two points per $1 spent at qualifying restaurants, and one point per $1 spent everywhere else. They can also take advantage of special pricing offers, such as two-for-one airline tickets when booking a rental car or four-night hotel stay through Each flyer gets one free beverage if they show their Allegiant World MasterCard to the flight attendants during a trip.

The sign-up bonus is fairly attainable for this card. Users can get 15,000 bonus points after spending at least $1,000 on the card within the first 90 days. There is an annual fee of $59, but the bonus alone is worth $150 toward Allegiant travel purchases. Since the card is issued by Bank of America, users can connect their Allegiant credit cards to their Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay mobile wallets.
