Adding a DP, I have a reasonable mechanic that was recommended to me through a friend and it appears a recent charge has coded as gas.  It is labeled as "Gas" and I have already received 2%, so it looks like I will get 7% back on the transaction. Absolutely love this card.

 

Hopefully this is helpful to someone!


That's awesome! Yeah, I've certainly noticed their reward codes are pretty generous. I like to try different stores with this card to see what it codes as, in case I can get a higher reward. My Nespresso orders code as grocery with this card, so it's a nice little bonus when the Hi-5 stacks with the usual 2%.

Re: Affinity FCU 1st quarter Hi5 bonus cats released

I still have trouble finding where they mention rotating cats as a benefit of this card.

 

Feel like I clicked every link and read all the fine print, nada.

 

Hope it's still an option in the future when I go after.

Yeah they seem to "hide" it more these days.

ETA: actual cashback % when using the Cash Rewards card added below.

 

GAS = 7% (Gas is normally 2%, so Hi5 adds additional 5%)

CELLULAR / WIRELESS

CABLE / SATELLITE

 


 

So what am I missing about this card?  I had looked into it (I'm all for 5%, lol) but quickly dismissed it because the website says 5% on Amazon and Bookstores.  Boo.  Here you are showing that the 5% is for Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Grocery.  That's a big difference!  I also had no idea the categories rotated as there is zero evidence of that on the website, including the video.  Is this the case of poor advertising or are they purposely keeping it a secret?

I can't speak for why, but they don't broadcast the rotating categories. Right now (Oct - Dec) we are getting 10% at Amazon, 6% Walmart and Target, and Supermarkets. The card also has a $200 SUB. It's best kept secret out there, IMO. 


While I start to do my homework on Affinity FCU (unless I did already and forgot Smiley LOL) - how difficult is it to be a member, or are they geofenced?

And they do that for you if you just call to become a member. So pretty easy. We will make Affinity our main credit union since their rates are awesome, service is outstanding and BECU, even though I love them still, can't help us with anything house-related in Montana, like a mortgage, HELOC etc.

Re: Affinity FCU 1st quarter Hi5 bonus cats released

I wonder what the categories for the next quarter will be? This will be my first time receiving an email for Quarterly spend.

 

@DurielI started counting after the statement issued where I hit $3,000 spend.  I got the bonus about 15 days after that statement cut.  If I count the actual day maybe add another 7 days or so.
