Update:  The 60,000 point offer has expired.

Reader Blake A commented that Navy Federal Credit Union has a 60,000 point offer on their Visa Signature Flagship Rewards card.

$600 in air travel from just 1 card – which is not issued the big banks like Chase or American Express – is quite a good deal!

Note that you have to affiliated to the military (contractor, national guard etc.) or have family in the military to qualify.

Navy Federal Credit Union Visa Signature Card

Link:  Navy Federal Credit Union 60,000 Point Visa Signature Flagship Rewards

You get 60,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 90 days.  60,000 points is enough for up to a $600 ticket!

The $49 annual fee is waived for the first year.

You’ll earn 2 points for every $1 you spend.  There is no limit to the amount of points you can earn and Navy Federal says that your points never expire.

I suspect what they mean is that just like with Ultimate Rewards points, your points never expire unless you close your account without using your points.

  • 15,000 points = $150 round-trip airline ticket
  • 30,000 points = $300 round-trip airline ticket
  • 50,000 points = $500 round-trip airline ticket
  • 60,000 points = $600 round-trip airline ticket

You’d have to spend $15,000 just to earn a $300 ticket so this is like getting 2% cash back towards air travel.

You also get more flexibility when booking a ticket, since you could book almost any ticket as long as you had points to cover the cost of the tickets.  And you’d earn  miles for flying on that ticket as well!

Cash Back

There are different redemption values for merchandise & cash back.  You only get a 1% to 1.5% value when redeeming for cash back, instead of 2% for air travel.

You can redeem your points for cash:

  • 20,000 points gets you $100 cash back (1% cash back)
  • 30,000 points gets you $150 cash back (1% cash back)
  • 40,000 points gets you $250 cash back (1.25% cash back)
  • 60,000 points gets you $450 cash back  (1.5% cash back)
The cash back is deposited to your savings account within 10 days.


You can also redeem your points for gift cards or merchandise online or by calling 888-842-6328, Monday through Saturday, from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, and on Sundays from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, Eastern time.

There are Many Ways to Qualify for Navy Federal Credit Union Membership

The Navy Federal Credit Union was established for those in the military, but membership also extends to lots of other folks such as civilian contractors and family members.

Navy Federal says that

Bottom Line

60,000 points from the Navy Federal Credit Union Visa is enough for a $600 airline ticket, which is a very good deal from just 1 card!

You actually can use this card to apply points and cash towards a more expensive flight. I used the sign up bonus towards an $1100 international flight, bringing my out of pocket costs down to $500. It's true they say the flight isn't changeable after booking through their portal, but you can apply as many points as you like in the 100 point increments and the rest of the cost posts to the card.

Just saw they are running ×4 points from 11/15-12/31. Good value?

Any difference between this card and the Capital one Venture?

Received my 60000 points today in my account!!!

Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you for bringing this info forward to both MMS & Blake A!!!

As Christopher accurately predicated, the points did not get posted until "after' the first closing date, after the 90 days of having the account open.

Thanks for posting about this card. I have been using this card for 3 months now and I love it. Its a great alternate to the Chase Sapphire when not using for travel and resturants. Its always great to hear about cards that are not issued by so called 'big banks'.

@B Sapkota - Glad you found it useful. It is always nice to know about cards from other banks.
