The Olympics are here and Visa is blowing it out with a special FlexPoint earning promotion for people who are approved for the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature or the FlexPerks Business Edge Travel Rewards Visa card. These new cardholders earn an additional bonus based on the number of medals that Team USA brings home – earning up to 200 points per medal. This promotion will runs from August 1 through September 3 while the games are going on.

Show me the points

Every time the Team USA bring home a gold medal these new FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Cardholders will bank 200 FlexPoints. What about silver medals? They will earn people an extra 100 FlexPoints and bringing home a bronze metal translates into 50 FlexPoints.

These extra points are in addition to the 20,000 Enrollment Bonus FlexPoints people get when they hit a $2,000 spend threshold over the first four months with either the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature or the FlexPerks Business Edge Travel Rewards Visa card. For more information, people can visit the website.

The cards are issued by U.S. Bank and they are excited by the promotion in terms of what it offers new cardholders and adding to the excitement of the games for them.

“Thanks to Visa, we are excited to offer this opportunity to new FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Cardmembers and help them catch the Olympic spirit,” said Cliff Cook, senior vice president for the U.S. Bank retail credit-card division. “This promotion will encourage our new FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Cardmembers to share in the achievement of United States Olympians and bring them closer to The Olympics.”

Visa takes over the Olympics

Visa is the exclusive payment services provider for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. And as such has not only rolled out an Olympic lounge in Rio and other cities in the U.S. for Visa Chase United cardholders, they have also outfitted the forty-five members of Team Visa with Visa Rings. With these rings they can make payments throughout the Olympic Village by tapping the rings at the NFC-enabled payment terminals Visa has set up throughout the facility. They can use them to pick up souvenirs, have dinner or buy anything else they want or need while at the games.
