*Once you're approved for the PenFed Pathfinder® Rewards Visa® Signature Card, you can open a checking account (except a PenCheck Limited Account) and receive an additional 1x point on all travel purchases. You must be a primary owner on both the credit card AND checking account to receive Honors Advantage bonus rewards. If no checking account is open at the time of the Pathfinder card application, the 1x point reward increase will be added within one business day of opening the checking account.
You must maintain the checking account in order to receive the 4x points on all travel purchases. If you close your checking account, then you’ll receive the standard 3x points on all travel purchases.
**As a PenFed Pathfinder® Rewards cardholder, if you qualify for Honors Advantage (member of the military or Access America account holder) at the time of the application, we will waive the annual fee on your account. If you were not eligible at account opening, but subsequently become eligible, the annual fee will be waived on your next anniversary. If at any time, you fail to meet the eligibility requirement, you will no longer be eligible for the waiver. You will receive advance notice of this change.
