Our Review

The MBNA Rewards Platinum Plus Mastercard is like the little brother of the .

However, unlike some little brothers, this card does not live in the shadow of his big brother. Despite only having a smaller return on spending, this little card more than makes up for it with its much lower minimum income requirement – and $0 annual fee!

With every purchase you make, the MBNA Rewards Platinum Plus Mastercard will get you:

  • 2 points per dollar spent on gas, groceries, and restaurant purchases (up to $5,000 spent annually in each category), and...
  • 1 point per dollar spent on all other purchases.

Like it’s big brother, the MBNA Rewards Platinum Plus Mastercard gives you 6 options to redeem your points, more than any other card on the market. And despite being labeled a rewards card…

The redemption value for travel is 100 points per $1, but for cash and charity donations it is 200 points per $1. Merchandise & gift cards point value are disclosed in the rewards catalogue.

Unlike other cards, YOU are in control of how and when you redeem your cash or rewards. MBNA’s online interface lets you redeem on demand how you want and when you want.

Why do others force you into statement credits once a year? Your guess is as good as mine...

And, as an added bonus, there are 7 different types of travel and purchase insurance included, so that you can shop and travel worry free. Not bad for a no fee card.
