Bank Rewards Program Credit Cards
Bank Rewards Programs are where your credit card earns points in the bank's points currency, which can then be transferred out to frequent flyer programs on demand - we call these 'flexible points programs' as they offer a number of benefits and differences over 'direct-earn', airline-branded credit cards. Flexible points programs and linked credit cards are a power-up for points-collectors.
