Read Insider’s guide to the best rewards credit cards.
One of the main factors in deciding on the best credit card for you – aside from a big welcome bonus and rewards earning – is the benefits the card provides. Generally, you’ll find different perks on each card, but sometimes there are benefits that are common across all cards from an issuer (like Amex Offers) or within a credit card network (like World Elite Mastercard benefits).
If you have any US personal Visa credit card in your wallet, you’ve just gained brand-new benefits that could save you a bit of money. Eligible cardholders can now take advantage of a free Shipt delivery-service membership, as well as discounts on concert tickets with Sofar Sounds and online classes through Skillshare.
The exact benefit depends on the type of Visa card you have. Visa Infinite and Visa Signature cards, which tend to have higher annual fees, are getting more valuable discounts and freebies, while standard Visa cardholders get lesser perks. While none of these additions are particularly groundbreaking, they’re handy if these are services you use anyway.
Here’s a breakdown of the new Visa benefits and what you’ll get with each flavor of Visa card.
We’re focused here on the rewards and perks that come with each card. These cards won’t be worth it if you’re paying interest or late fees. When using a credit card, it’s important to pay your balance in full each month, make payments on time, and only spend what you can afford to pay.
New Visa card benefits
Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card
To find out what type of Visa card you have, look for the Visa logo (usually on the back of the card). If it also says “Infinite” or “Signature,” you’ll know you have one of those card types. If it doesn’t, you’ve got a regular Visa card.
There aren’t many Visa Infinite credit cards in the US – examples include the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, United Club℠ Infinite Card, and U.S. Bank Altitude® Reserve Visa Infinite® Card. But there are plenty of Visa Signature cards, including some of the most popular travel rewards credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card.
