There are hundreds of Visa credit cards with rewards points, which individual credit card issuers give cardholders for making purchases and reaching certain milestones, but Visa does not have its own rewards points. Rewards are the responsibility of the banks and credit unions that issue credit cards, and Visa is not a credit card issuer.
Visa still provides plenty of perks, just not points, miles or cash back for making credit card purchases. Cardholders can claim special Visa offers for savings on travel and shopping, for instance. Visa also is responsible for secondary credit card benefits such as rental car insurance, extended warranty protection, travel insurance and more.
When it comes to rewards points credit cards on the Visa network, the points that you can earn are worth about 1 cent each, on average. The exact value varies by rewards program and depends on what you redeem the points for. Typically, you can spend your Visa card’s rewards points for travel, merchandise through an issuer’s online shopping portal, cash, gift cards, charity donations and more. In some cases, Visa rewards points may be worth more with some redemption methods than others.
You can earn rewards points by making purchases with the right Visa credit card as well as by meeting the spending requirements for a bonus, referring a friend and more, depending on the card.
