How to Apply for the NASA Federal Platinum Cash Rewards Credit Card

The NASA Federal Platinum Cash Rewards Credit Card is one of the two personal credit cards provided by the NASA Federal Credit Union that offers a rewards program. The cashback works as follows: 1% rebate on purchases of up to $1000, 1.25% rebate on purchases of $1001-$2000, and 2% on purchases of $2000 or more. This is a fairly straight forward cash back program, however, it’s made considerably more attractive when you consider the fact that the card demands no annual fee and has an APR of 14.15%-17.99%, depending on creditworthiness (APR is subject to change). The physical card itself is available in three beautiful NASA designs, the choice of which you’ll have during the second portion of your application, should you decide to commit. Scroll down to review our tutorial on the application process.
