Get rewards with your card

With no annual fee?_, use your Card for every purchase and earn rewards that can be turned into a deposit to your designated eligible Fidelity account.

Earn points with your card

Earn 2 points for every dollar in net retail purchases charged to the Card.
There's no limit to the rewards you can earn.

Invest More

For every $2,500 in purchases you make, $50 can be automatically deposited into your eligible Fidelity account.
You can also enjoy the flexibility to redeem points into other eligible Fidelity accounts.

Earn 5,000 bonus points after you make at least $500 in purchases within the first 60 days
(that's enough for $50 in an eligible Fidelity account).

If one does not have a Fidelity account, does this mean one cannot get the card?

Is this the highest signup bonus this card ever gets to? Been tempted to apply before and was hoping for a bonus.

If you do not have a Fidelity account, how do you redeem the cash rewards? I have Fidelity accounts, but they are IRAs. Not sure if one can deposit rewards into IRA.

$50 for every $2500? This seems kind of lame? Unless you really spend that much every few months, not sure if I see the worth when there are other cards with better benefits for spending that much. Someone tell me how I'm wrong, since I've got Fidelity account as well.

As soon as your reward is over $50 - it transfers the reward amount into your ira - all you have to do is link it Wink

Btw - shows your annual contribution / you don't have to keep the records Rock

this card has 2% cash back on all purchases. Most cards are 1% or less with maybe higher cashback for certain categories. I use this card when i don't get highter cash back with other cards (i.e. use citi forward at restaurants, discover/freedom/dividends for the categories, penfed for gas, and the rest goes on my fidelity amex/(old) priceline visa).

I cannot make IRA contributions. I have SEP accounts and not allow to do contributions to both. So if these rewards are deposited as IRA contributions, I have a problem.

The 2% is higher than the norm for most cards. So it is worthwhile when one is only earning like 1%. But it would not be good against specialty cards (i.e. hotel cards or airline cards) where one earns much higher than 2%. The extra 1% earnings will add up if one spends significant amount on purchases outside of the specialty cards.
