Our verdict

Earn Heritage Credits as you spend and redeem them for gift cards, retail items and charity donations.

The Heritage Bank Classic Visa is one of the few cards to offer an annual fee waiver each year, with a spending requirement that works out to be an average of $2,084 per month (rounded to the nearest dollar).

Pros

  • $55 annual fee is waived if Visa purchases within the calendar year exceed $25,000
  • Up to 55 days interest-free on purchases

Cons

  • Earn rate of 1 Heritage Credit per $1,300 spent is not competitive when compared to the average among other cards of 1:1.

Hi Marty,

You could request an additional card for your partner. This would give them a card with their name printed on it, but you would be the person legally responsible for managing the account, including all repayments. There’s also an additional cardholder fee, as we’ve outlined in this review. If you have further questions, you can contact Heritage Bank on 13 14 22. I hope this helps.
