New Norwegian Reward Card from Synchrony and Norwegian Air

Norwegian Air has officially launched a co-branded credit card, allowing cardholders to use their spending on everyday purchases to help earn direct flights to Europe. But don’t get too excited. You will need a lot of spending to get that free trip.

Norwegian’s first-ever co-branded credit card in the U.S. is being launched in partnership with Synchrony, a major consumer financial services company, and Mastercard. The no-fee card is being offered by Norwegian’s loyalty program, Norwegian Reward which the company says has 10 million members worldwide, including 1.4 million in the US. A Norwegian Air credit card has been offered throughout Scandinavia since 2007, but this is the first one for US customers.

Guru’s Wrap-up

I don’t see a market for this card, especially for frequent travelers. Even when flying Norwegian often, there’s better options out there for travel expenses.

  1. Approved 4k CL, had 11 inquiries on TU, 10/24 i believe* possibly more, I have flown 10+ Norwegian flights in last year (went Scandinavia this year: Denmark, Sweden, & Norway all w/ Norwegian air)… I am sure my recent flight history helped with approval

    Not sure where exactly my TU score was at approval, anywhere from 640 to low 700s…I see some Fico scores pretty high over 700 & some closer to 650
