Credit and debit cards are secure and convenient ways to pay for everyday purchases and bigger-ticket items, whether you’re shopping instore or online. But are you taking full advantage of the benefits that your cards offer? Here are five credit and debit card perks you may be missing out on:
With a card like Citizens Bank’s Visa® Platinum Card or Debit Mastercard®, you earn ScoreCard™ rewards points with qualifying purchases. These points accumulate over time and can be redeemed for gift cards, travel, sporting goods, electronics, housewares, and more. If you have multiple qualifying cards, you can combine points to get rewards faster, and if you don’t have enough points for the reward you want, you may be able to purchase extra points to make up the difference.
If you’re earning ScoreCard™ points, not only can you redeem your points for travel expenses like airfare, hotels, and car rentals, but you can also get help with booking your trip. Just call 1-800-854-0790 and speak to one of their travel agents. Additionally, if you have a higher-level Visa® card, you may have access to an expanded suite of travel benefits, including VIP hotel upgrades, roadside assistance, trip delay reimbursement, emergency medical services, rental car coverage, and access to a concierge.
All of Citizen’s Banks credit and debit cards are digital wallet-ready to make checkouts even swifter. With a digital wallet, your payment and shipping information is stored in your Apple or Android device.

Are you one of the majority of Americans who has no idea how much they spent last month?
