Today, REI Co-op, the largest consumer co-op and outdoor specialty retailer in the United States, and Capital One, introduced their card partnership and launched the new REI Co-op® Mastercard® program - rei.capitalone.com. This new program offers existing and new cardholders a compelling set of benefits and inspires members' daily pursuit of a life outside by rewarding everyday purchases to support their outdoor adventures.
The new REI Co-op Mastercard, made of 85% recycled materials, offers benefits for REI members that recognize their passion for the outdoors, including:
Cardmembers will also receive 5% back in card rewards for donations made to the REI Cooperative Action Fund, a 501(c)(3) community-supported public charity that directly supports organizations promoting justice, equity and belonging in the outdoors. Capital One will also support the fund with an annual donation as a key pillar of the card partnership.
Capital One offers industry-leading digital capabilities that help create a seamless experience for cardholders, including a top-rated mobile app. In addition to Capital One's digital focus, REI chose the company as its new card partner with an appreciation for common values, including demonstrated commitment and action in the areas of community engagement, financial well-being, sustainability and diversity, inclusion and belonging for its community.
In 2022, Capital One was named to Time's "100 Most Influential Companies" list for its decision to eliminate overdraft fees and non-sufficient funds fees for all Capital One consumer bank customers, and are consistently recognized on 'best places to work' lists including Forbes "Best Employers for Diversity." Capital One is also committed to protecting the environment, with further information available at https://www.capitalone.com/environment.
