Our Review

The MBNA Rewards World Elite card allows you to earn 2 points on every purchase you make - no limits, no cap, no restrictions. These points can be used to redeem for almost anything - from travel purchases, merchandise to cash back on your statement.

With an annual fee of $120, this MBNA card gives you:

  • A signup bonus of 10,000 points - 5,000 upon your first purchase, and another 5,000 when you enroll for e-statements (must be completed in 90 days)
  • An insurance package that includes 8 different types of insurance
  • Some perks like 24/7 concierge service and free secondary cards

Points are worth varying amounts depending on what you redeem them for:

  • For travel credits, 100 points is worth $1, a 2% return;
  • For cash back, 120 points is worth $1, a 1.67% return;
  • Merchandise varies according to the MBNA Catalogue.

A few things to watch out for: Like most World Elite cards, this one does have a pretty hefty minimum income requirement, and your points are varied in value. To earn maximum value for this card, your points need to redeemed for travel purchases. There is also a hefty annual fee of $120.

With its recent cash back devaluation, here are some other cash back cards to strongly consider in its place:

The – Earn a flat 2% cash back on all of your purchases, with an annual fee of $99.

The – Earn 4% cash back on gas & groceries, 2% on bills and pharmacies, 1% on everything else, with an annual fee of $99.

What are your thoughts?

The creditcardGenius algorithm calculates an estimated dollar value for all rewards and bonuses by using a typical point value a person can realistically achieve by redeeming their rewards in a reasonably optimized way. The "Welcome Bonus" is the dollar value obtained by combining of all one-time bonuses available to new cardholders within the first year. To qualify for the full bonus you may need to make purchases, meet minimum spending requirements, or complete special actions. Terms and conditions apply.
