Win a Vacation for Two to Puerto Rico By Using Your PenFed Credit Card

Between now and December 15, 2006, each time you use your Pentagon Federal credit card, you’re automatically entered to win a vacation for two to Puerto Rico, valued at $3,000.

As a reminder, if you’re not already a cardholder, the PenFed Visa Platinum Cash Rewards is a great cash back card, earning a flat 1.25% cash back on all purchases. In addition, it’s useful for overseas travel, as it’s one of the few credit cards that does not add a currency exchange surcharge on top of the 1% that Visa/MC charge.
