Remember not too long ago, when being a nerd was considered a bad thing? Now a days, everyone has something that they like to nerd out about, and no matter who you are, there is a community of like minded people that are willing to accept you. We could have argued that the Marvel credit card was the nerdiest credit card out there, with the way you can show support for your favorite superheros. Well, if you’re a Star Trek fan, you’ve got even more incentive to flaunt it.
The Star Trek credit card is offering $300 after spending a total of $2,000 within the first 3 months. As a comparison, the previous highest offer paid out 50,000 points after spending $5,000.
The Star Trek credit card is issued by NASA Federal Credit Union. Both applying to get into the credit union and the card itself require their own separate hard inquires.
The card comes with a $39 annual fee that is not waived for the first year. THe card earns 3x back on Startrek.com, 2x on gas purchases, and 1x everywhere else.
While I’m not the biggest Star Trek fan, I do have a few friends that are. They aren’t that concerned for the credit game, so for them, this card is more about being able to show support then about earning points. When it comes to the reward structure of the card, the categories make sense, they just aren’t that profitable.
That being said, if you were interested in the card for the status, and less so about the rewards that it offers, then this is a pretty neat time to apply. Just be mindful that if you are not already part of NASA Federal Credit Union, you’ll have to take 2 hard Inquiries to get this card.
Are you a big enough fan for this card? Is there any other card you would recommend? Let us know down in the comment section below.
