PenFed Defender American Express

Was browsing PenFed and saw this card whch seems to be new and very low introductory APR of 6.99 then after 60 months 9.99. At least one member need to be active/reserve/guard/ or retired status. Offers 1.5% cashback (no limit) on purchases.

 

  • You or your (co-applicant) must be in an active military service status, a member of the Reserves or National Guard or retired from such service to qualify for this product.
  • 1.5% cash back on all purchases - no limit to the rewards you can earn
  • No fees of any kind
  • Summary of Terms (PDF)

 

Looks like a good card to have. The Cash Reward one offers 5% on gas but 0.25% for everything else.

Looks good, but lets a lot of people out since it's only for active or retired military -- that's even stricter than Navy, which allows family, etc. to join.

Re: PenFed Defender American Express

thats a really good card for no AF. Its CB but i think the closest thing NFCU has to compare is the Flagship. Which has a 49 AF and a not so great point criteria.. I checked whogavemecredit to see if anyone posted anything about it but i guess its too new. I hope the underwriting isnt as strict as their other cards Smiley Happy

Re: PenFed Defender American Express

This card is tempting but Penfed never showed me any love. I like the no AF and 1.5% cashback.

1.5% is great, but the card design is ugly.

I could have mistaken this card for my PSECU debit card Smiley Happy
