The new offering, Allegiant World MasterCard, will enable cardholders to earn three points per dollar on Allegiant purchases, two points per dollar on qualifying dining purchases and one point per dollar on all other purchases.

It also offers 15,000 bonus points after spending at least $1,000 in purchases within 90 days of account opening and buy one, get one airfare.

Cardholders can also avail priority boarding and one free beverage onboard every Allegiant flight when a customer shows their Allegiant credit card.

Allegiant vice president of marketing Brian Davis said: “We at Allegiant are very proud to launch our first-ever co-branded credit card, the Allegiant World MasterCard issued by Bank of America.

“Offering a credit card rewards our passengers and creates more opportunities for them to travel just by using their card for everyday purchases. It’s the most important customer-facing initiative we have undertaken in many years.”

Bank of America affinity and co-brand card executive Michael Simpson said: “Allegiant is committed to providing outstanding value, and we’re pleased to partner with them on this new co-brand card that delivers attractive benefits, making travel easier than ever for consumers.”
