Alexandria, VA – February 20, 2013 – As anglers start to gear up for the upcoming fishing season, KeepAmericaFishing™ and UMB CardPartner have joined forces to launch the KeepAmericaFishing affinity Visa® Platinum Rewards credit card. Now anglers can proudly demonstrate their passion for fishing and commitment to fisheries conservation with every purchase they make.
When consumers sign up and make their first purchase, KeepAmericaFishing will receive a $50 contribution. Additionally, a portion of every dollar that each cardholder charges for the life of the program will go to KeepAmericaFishing to support their efforts to promote sustainable fishing. Consumers are able to choose from three pre-designed card options, or upload a photo of their biggest catch and customize their own card.
“Using the KeepAmericaFishing Visa® affinity Platinum Rewards credit card for everyday purchases is an easy way for supporters to help keep our waters open, clean and abundant with fish,” said Gordon Robertson, Vice President, KeepAmericaFishing.
The KeepAmericaFishing Visa® Platinum Rewards card offers qualified cardholders exceptional benefits including no annual fee and a low APR*. Additionally, cardholders can earn points at hundreds of online retailers and redeem those points for name-brand merchandise, event tickets, gift cards, and travel rewards options.
