Earn accelerated rewards on all purchases at Horizon Hobby and everywhere else you shop
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Imprint, which offers branded payments and rewards products, today announced a partnership with Horizon Hobby, the leader in radio control products and accessories, to launch the Horizon Hobby VisaⓇ Credit Card and Horizon Hobby Rewards VisaⓇ Card. By offering a bank-linked rewards card alongside a credit card, this program is the first payment and loyalty solution that expands customer access beyond traditional credit card approval rates.
Horizon Hobby cardholders earn unmatched RC Club point rewards, which are redeemable at 2,000 points for $5 store credit. Based on their RC Club membership, cardholders earn up to 25 points per dollar spent at horizonhobby.com (6.25% rewards value) and 5 points per dollar everywhere else (1.25% rewards value), including your local Horizon Hobby authorized hobby stores. Cardholders also earn 16,000 points ($40 value) when they sign up for the Horizon Hobby Credit Card, and 8,000 points ($20 value) when they sign up for the Horizon Hobby Rewards Card.
The Horizon Hobby Credit Card application has no impact on customers’ credit scores, and comes with competitive APRs and no annual fees. For customers who prefer an alternative to credit, the Horizon Hobby Rewards Card is linked to your bank and has no credit inquiries, no interest, no overdrafts, and no fees.
To get started, users download the Imprint App on their mobile device to sign up for the credit card (download here) or rewards card (download here). Virtual cards can then be immediately used anywhere Visa is accepted, with physical credit cards shipping shortly thereafter.
