Sallie Mae 5% MasterCard & $25 Sign Up Bonus

Posted by Madison on May 22, 2015

Last time I updated the quarterly 5% Rotating Cash Rewards Credit Cards MDP Reader Krial pointed out that the Sallie Mae card from Barclaycard was missing.

Krial said:

It has 5% gas, 5% groceries, and 5% bookstore (Amazon) year-round (with monthly caps). We tend to rack up more cash back on that card than any other single card, and there are no categories to juggle or sign-ups to remember. Ever so happy with it.

Great addition Krial! It’s perfect for Free Money Friday!

In addition to the 5% Krial mentions, the Sallie Mae MasterCard from Barclaycard also has a $25 sign up bonus.

How to Get Your $25 Sign Up Bonus

  1. Open a new Sallie Mae MasterCard.
  2. Use your card within 90 days of account opening.
  3. Earn 2,500 bonus points.
  4. Redeem for a $25 cash back statement.

  • Your participation in the rewards program may end if your credit card account is inactive for 13 months or more.

  1. Is the $250 limit the *total* of gas and groceries, or *each separately* earns 5% up to $250?
