Credit One Bank and NASCAR are continuing the celebrations after agreeing on a multi-year sponsorship extension by naming American Express as the new payment network for its co-branded NASCAR Credit Card. The new network, plus a new name and design, have been launched to help kick off the new 2022 NASCAR racing season.
Credit One Changes NASCAR Credit Card from Visa to Amex
Credit One Bank has served as an Official Partner and issuer of co-branded credit cards for NASCAR since 2016. The two brands recently agreed on an extension to this successful partnership, with the added announcement of American Express becoming the Official Credit Card Payment Network of NASCAR starting with the 2022 racing season.
NASCAR® American Express® Card Features
The changes to the NASCAR Credit Card (formerly a Visa product) have already taken effect, with the new Amex version now called the NASCAR® American Express® Card. The Credit One Bank NASCAR, American Express Card, offers fan-focused benefits including:
- Discounts on select NASCAR race experiences: tickets, parking, merchants, and more
- Free access to NASCAR Scanner for the 2022 race season (via Desktop or NASCAR mobile)
- Opportunities to win tickets to races with VIP treatment
- Cash back rewards on everyday spend categories
Cardholders can also enjoy a wide range of unique discounts from leading brands through Amex Offers, early access to concert and event tickets from American Express Experiences, and additional benefits offered by American Express partners, including purchase and return protection, travel accident insurance, and extended warranty coverage.
“Helping Our Customers Access More of What They Love”
In celebration of the partnership and new card launch, a Credit One Bank and American Express-themed pace car will be present on the racetrack during the historic Busch Light Clash at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum last weekend.
“Helping our customers access more of what they love is a tenet of everything we do,” said Mamta Kapoor, Head of American Express and NASCAR Partnership Marketing at Credit One Bank, in a press release. “NASCAR has some of the most passionate fans in the world. We are proud to continue to give those superfans unique opportunities to earn cash back rewards while gaining access to exclusive experiences with their new Credit One Bank NASCAR American Express Card.”
“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Credit One Bank with the addition of this new card for NASCAR fans on the American Express Network,” added William Stredwick, Senior Vice President, Global Network Services, American Express. “This partnership extends our brand, giving more customers access to the benefits, offers, and protections of American Express.”
“Announcing this new partnership with American Express and a multi-year renewal with long-time partner Credit One Bank continues building on the NASCAR fan experience,” said Michelle Byron, Vice President of Partnership Marketing, NASCAR. “We’re giving fans unique ways to experience the sport and show their support for brands that celebrate the best racing in the world.”
