First National Bank TravElite Amex Card

First National Bank has sweetened the offer for their TravElite American Express which is now publicly available with a good bonus and great benefits for a no-fee card.

The Offer

Earn 25,000 points to redeem for a $250 statement credit, when you spend $2,500 in the first 3 billing cycles.

Card Details & Benefits

  • 3x points per $1 spent on travel purchases
  • 1.5x points per $1 spent on everyday purchases
  • $100 Global Entry Credit – Save time and bypass the lines for TSA screening and customs at select U.S. airports if approved. Pay your Global Entry application fee and receive the full $100 back as a statement credit.
  • $100 Travel Discretionary Fund – Enroll your TravElite Card with Premium Concierge and receive up to $100 in statement credits yearly to use for baggage, fees, airport lounge access, on-board food and beverage and more.
  • No Foreign Transaction Fee
  • No Annual Fee
  • Offer Page


The bonus on this card comes in the form of 25,000 points. Points can be redeemed at 1 cent a piece for statement credit so that will give you a $250 sign-up bonus. There’s no travel partners, so you can use points to book flights or purchase are gift cards and merchandise, again at 1 cent a piece.

Besides the sign up bonus there’s a lot of extras here that we rarely see in a no-fee card. You get $100 in statement credits yearly for baggage, fees, airport lounge access, on-board food and beverage and more. This alone makes it a no-brainer to keep the card long term. You also receive $100 Global Entry Credit and no foreign transaction fees.


This card probably has some of the best perks for a no-fee card and it’s definitely worth it if you aren’t going after bigger bonuses on other cards. You’ll get $350-$450 value in total out of it in the first year and then a yearly $100 in statement credits after that.

Let us know what you think.

  1. Does anyone know if there is instant approval? This is the page I got: Your TravElite American Express® Card Application has been submitted. You should receive written status of your application within 2-4 weeks. – I am guessing that it is not the best news 🙂

  2. No pre-approvals, never had any relationship with FNBO, and decided to apply on 5/29.

    Today I got a call in the morning asking me to answer 4 questions pulled from my Credit Report. Within 3-4 hours after the call, I then checked my Application Status online and I got approved and the Card will be mailed in 7-10 days.

    I was 10/24 when they pulled my Experian report on 5/29 (at time of application).
