Charity Charge offers cardholders a way to give back with every purchase they make.Charity Charge
It’s no secret that our passion at The Points Guy is maximizing credit card rewards for travel. We are hyper-focused on getting the most out of our credit card spend and teaching readers to do the same. But we also welcome the fact that there are other constructive and valuable ways to redeem credit card points.
In addition to publishing hands-on travel and credit card advice, we embrace giving back to charity as an important part of community involvement and social responsibility. Plus, we are no strangers to the fact that $16 billion worth of credit card rewards expire every year (based on a recent BankRate Money Pulse survey). That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Charity Charge World MasterCard. The Charity Charge card has stepped in to offer a socially conscious way to ensure these points don’t go to waste.
The Charity Charge Premise
The Charity Charge World MasterCard has a simple but powerful premise. It automatically donates 1% of your credit card purchases to the nonprofits of your choice. All you have to do is choose your charities and use the card. You can track all of your donations from a user-friendly online dashboard and see how your money is making an impact. There is no annual fee, your donations are tax-deductible, and Charity Charge underwrites all donation processing fees so that the charities receive the full 1% reward.
