New AARP® Credit Card from Chase Offers Customers Cash Back on Every Purchase, Every Time
Card Offers Unlimited 3 Percent Cash Back on Gas Station and Restaurant Purchases; 1 Percent Cash Back on Everything Else
WILMINGTON, Del.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), today announced a new credit card for AARP members, offering cardholders 3 percent cash back on gas station and restaurant purchases, with no earning caps or points expiration and no annual fee. The card, designed to reward AARP members for their most common everyday purchases, also offers unlimited 1 percent cash back on all other purchases.
“The new credit card for AARP members is designed to make life more rewarding for our customers,” said Ralph Pinto, senior director, Chase Card Services. “By providing cash back to customers on gas station and restaurant purchases that they’re regularly making, we’ve built one of the most rewarding credit cards for everyday expenses.”
Each year, the average household spends nearly $3,000 at gas stations, more than $2,600 at restaurants and more than $8,000 on other everyday purchases like groceries, apparel and entertainment.* By receiving 3 percent cash back on gas station and restaurant purchases and 1 percent on all other purchases, the average family can easily earn more than $250 cash back every year just by using the card.
The new AARP Credit Card from Chase also offers customers:
- A 10 percent discount when redeeming rewards for travel through Chase;
- Price, purchase, return and extended warranty protections – at no additional cost; and
- Dedicated, personalized customer service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Chase offers the only credit cards endorsed by AARP. To receive the benefits of the new credit card for AARP members from Chase, existing cardholders should contact customer service using the phone number on the back of their card. Customers can also call Chase customer service to redeem rewards for cash, travel, gift cards and other merchandise. For more information, visit www.aarpcreditcard.com.
Continued Participation in Drive to End Hunger, an Initiative of AARP and AARP Foundation
In addition, customers can join Chase in supporting Drive to End Hunger, the national initiative led by AARP and AARP Foundation to end hunger among older Americans. Chase is continuing its commitment to the program by matching donations of $1000 or less to AARP Foundation up to a total of $1 million in 2013. Since 2011, Chase’s sponsorship has donated $3.6 million to AARP Foundation for the cause—the equivalent of nearly 1.7 million meals for older Americans in need.
AARP® Credit Cards from Chase will again sponsor the No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet driven by Jeff Gordon at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on June 2, 2013. At the race, AARP Credit Cards from Chase will be the primary sponsor of the four-time NASCAR Sprint Series Champion’s car.
“AARP Foundation’s Drive to End Hunger is an important cause for Chase, and we look forward to continuing our commitment in the months ahead,” said Pinto. “With one in 11 older Americans at risk of hunger, Chase and its customers are proud to have helped millions of people who struggle to put food on the table.”
