Verdict: You still remember 2001, the year in which the Seattle Mariners won 116 games, tying the 1954 Cleveland Indians for the most victories ever in a single year. You also remember Ken Griffey’s first homerun, the days in which Alex Rodriquez would regularly blast long flies into the seats at the old Kingdome and the devastating fastball of Randy Johnson. You’re a Mariners die-hard fan. With the Seattle Mariners MLB Extra Bases Credit Card, you can let the rest of the world know this, every time you make a purchase. Even better, you can use this card to earn rewards points that you can turn into free Mariners tickets and merchandise.

Overview: This card is one of 30 issued by Major League Baseball and Bank of America, one for each of baseball team in the majors. The Mariners card comes complete with Seattle’s logo on its front.

Once you earn enough of these points, you can redeem them for Major League Baseball or Seattle Mariners merchandise, everything from autographed baseballs and authentic game jerseys to tickets to games and invitations to throw out the first pitch at upcoming Mariner games.

Travel and Shopping Benefits: Every time you make a purchase with the Seattle Mariners MLB Extra Bases Credit Card, you’ll earn one reward point. This is a bit of a drawback with these cards; you won’t have any opportunities to earn double or triple your rewards points. More lucrative rewards programs do give you these chances. The card, though, does come with a 0 percent introductory interest rate on all new purchases for the first 12 months after you activate your account. That’s a nice feature.

If your score is low, your purchase interest rate can be as high as 20.99 percent. There is no annual fee associated with this card. Cash advances cost $10 or 4 percent of the advance amount, whichever figure is higher. Returned-payment fees cost up to $25, while late-payment fees can run as high as $35.

Pros:

  • Card is inexpensive to own; no annual fee.
  • Interest rate can be as low as 12.99 percent.
  • Straightforward rewards program.

Cons:

  • Rewards program is rather vanilla.
  • Interest rate can run as high as 20.99 percent for those with weak credit.
