What are the perks?

The exact type of Visa card you carry will determine what level of benefits you'll receive. Regardless of the card, perks will come from three companies: Shipt, Skillshare, and Sofar Sounds.

Shipt provides delivery services in over 5,000 U.S. cities from over 130 retailers, such as Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, Target, and more.

Meanwhile, Skillshare is an online learning community offering more than 30,000 classes with courses ranging from illustration, design, photography, video, freelancing, and more.

Finally, Sofar Sounds provide intimate concerts available in over 400 cities around the world.

Perhaps the most popular Visa Infinite-branded card in the U.S. is the Chase Sapphire Reserve card. In addition to the Sapphire Reserve and the U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite® Card, there aren’t many other Visa Infinite cards that are easy to obtain.

Here are the new perks for Visa Infinite cardholders.

What Visa Signature cardholders get

There are several ways to determine if you have a Visa Signature card.

First, many cards simply have it in their name (i.e. Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card or the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature). Another way to find out if you have a Visa Signature is by simply looking at it. Most cards have the “Visa Signature” label located somewhere on the physical card. This includes one of the most common Visa Signature cards, the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.

The information for the Amazon Prime Rewards card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Here are the new perks for Visa Signature cardholders.
