First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) and First Bankcard have launched the First National Bank of Omaha TravElite American Express Card, which is designed specifically for frequent travellers.
The new card offers three points per dollar spent on eligible hotel and eligible airline purchases, 1.5 points per dollar spent on all other eligible credit card purchases, and reward points to redeem for travel, gift cards, name-brand merchandise, or cash back as a statement credit.
Cardholders can enrol their card with the Premium Concierge service and receive up to $100 per year in statement credits for incidental airline purchases such as airport lounge access, in-flight food and beverage, and checked baggage fees.
Cardholders also will receive a statement credit for the $100 application fee when registering for Global Entry, a US Customs and Border Protection program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travellers upon arrival in the US at select airports.
Stephen Eulie, president of First Bankcard, said: "First Bankcard is focused on creating possibilities for our customers by offering a comprehensive variety of credit card rewards programs.
"We are offering an extraordinary rewards program, which offers a rich array of benefits and services on the American Express network and is one of the most competitive available to frequent travellers today."
