Association members using the ADA Preferred Rewards Visa from U.S. Bank when making their ADA member's insurance plan premium payments to Great-West Financial will receive double rewards points, ADA Member Advantage announced earlier this summer.
"It's a convenient way for participants in any one of the seven ADA Members Insurance Plans to pay their insurance bill and earn up to 5,000 points each year, equivalent to $2,500 in eligible net purchases," said Gina Goodreau, director of specialty insurance markets at Great-West Financial. The ADA member's group insurance portfolio of plans underwritten by Great-West Financial includes life, disability, office overhead expense, hospital indemnity with extended care rider and critical illness.
"Granting two times bonus points on what is a pretty substantial and important purchase really gives us another opportunity to say thank you," said Kim Wagner, vice president and senior product manager at U.S. Bank. "We believe many members are already using their ADA Preferred Rewards Visa for their premiums, so this gives them the opportunity to earn some extra points and use them for something fun."
The ADA Preferred Rewards Visa, the only card endorsed by ADA Member Advantage and the Louisiana Dental Association, was updated last year with additional member benefits, including the removal of foreign transaction fees and additional opportunities to earn extra reward points.
ADA members already receive double bonus points on purchases made with the Louisiana Dental Association (such as dues payments and event registrations) and select ADA Member Advantage companies including Lands' End, HealthFirst, Whirlpool, Lenovo, and CyraCom. Visit www.ladental.org/LDS for more info on these companies. Members also earn five times bonus points on all purchases made with the ADA, such as the CDT code book, registration for ADA 2018 – America's Dental Meeting in Honolulu and ADA continuing education courses.
Reward points are redeemable for gift cards, merchandise, cash back in the form of a statement credit and travel. When redeemed on over 150 airlines with no blackout dates, 25,000 points can buy a ticket valued up to $450.
