The MBNA card offers many standard new card features: 0% on cash advances and balance transfers over the first six or seven billing periods, no annual fee, fixed 7.9% for the first billing cycles. There are three options on the front of the card: the WSOP logo for the Visa card or you can choose from a Johnny Chan or Chris Moneymaker image on the front of a MasterCard. Family members can also receive free cards, allowing everyone to consolidate on the same credit card.
The real magic comes in the WorldPoints reward program. Earning points with a credit card is fairly common, and here you earn WorldPoints reward points with every dollar charged. The twist comes from what you can redeem the points for. Their brochure shows some of the sample rewards you can earn: 2,500 points for a Samsonite Yacht tote bag, 40,800 for an iPod. It's the left side of the brochure that gives a hint into other things the WorldPoints can be redeemed for. For 4,000 points, you can receive a WSOP baseball card. For 11,000, you can get a WSOP folding poker table top. Earn 50,000 and you can redeem your points for a buy-in for a WSOP Circuit event with a $500 entry fee. And 200,000 will score you lessons with either Moneymaker or Johnny Chan. And earn 999,999 points between now and next July, and you can grab a seat at next year's WSOP Main Event.
You can head to https://wwwn.applyonlinenow.com/USCCapp/directM to apply for one of these cards, the Johnny Chan card using priority code M21O (O as in okra) or M21Y for the Chris Moneymaker card. Convincing your wife to buy groceries using the card then sitting outside Kroger reselling milk each day? Well, that's the challenge you have to face to earn your seat next year. It will be a $1M freeroll, but you'll have your free seat into the Main Event.
