Cash back1 is applied as a statement credit. Cardholders also enjoy the many benefits the World Mastercard® provides, including added convenience with travel services, concierge services, and exclusive golf privileges as well as protection of personal information and prompt assistance in emergencies with Mastercard ID Theft ProtectionTM, extended warranty, price protection, zero liability, and Mastercard Global Emergency Services.

“We are excited to join with AOPA in offering a customized credit card—the pilot’s card—as a way to show their support for the organization, active pilots, and aviation enthusiasts,” said Chad Doza, senior vice president of Commerce Bank. “We are committed to providing customized payment solutions to businesses and organizations in our communities, and we look forward to a rewarding relationship with AOPA.”

The customized card program shows an appreciation for AOPA cardholders and their enthusiasm for aviation. Presented with timely, personalized opportunities to save, the credit card serves to deepen their relationship with AOPA. The card also supports aviators’ interest in and passion for aviation, thereby helping to make their everyday purchases easier and more enjoyable, and providing rewards that matter to them. 

Speaking about the new card, AOPA President Mark Baker said, “Working with Commerce Bank, we have developed the best rewards credit card available to pilots. With a competitive cash back program focused on aviation-related products and services, this new card will allow pilots to save more of their hard-earned money and spend it on what they love—flying.”

The card will be available through the AOPA website. The AOPA credit card is accepted anywhere Mastercard® is accepted.
