How to Apply for the BBVA Compass Select Credit Card

The BBVA Compass Select Credit Card features a rewards program unlike most other credit cards. Whereas their points-based rewards program is similar to other cards, the unique aspect is that you can decide which categories of purchase you earn double the amount of points, and triple the amount. For example, if you fly a lot, you can set your card up so that you earn three-times the points when you make airfare purchases.

Applying is simple. Go to the link provided by the blue “Apply Now” button on this page and get started by continuing to read this article.
