Rotating Categories for Fresh Rewards

Simply put, Category Boosts are automatic increased rewards on certain spend categories for a certain period of time. These can be categories like Travel, Entertainment, Restaurants and Bars, Gas Stations, or Digital Games and Media… the places at which our cardholders like to shop the most. We will regularly rotate out which categories are boosted to keep things exciting and the rewards flowing.

These are the Category Boosts starting today:

Wait - What are Card Boosts?

Card Boosts is the umbrella term for certain rewards benefits available to Spin+ members. The best way to think of it is kind of like a house. Under the Card Boosts “roof” are features such as Merchant Boosts and the new Category Boosts. Both of these features separately will automatically increase your rewards earned when using your Fold Card. However, when you combine their powers together you can bring your earnings to new heights!

Strategy: Card Boost Combos

The ability to combine Card Boosts is probably one of our favorite features to date, since Card Boosts Combos can create a powerful way to automatically earn more than 1% back on your favorite categories and merchants. The best part? These boosts are pre-activated, requiring no extra steps from you. Simply swipe your Fold card at your favorite merchants and watch the rewards stack up - no activation required.

Pro tip: Combine Merchant and Category Card Boosts on single transactions to increase your overall rewards on your everyday spending.

Remember: each Merchant Boost offer has its own redemption details which you can find on the Offers page in the app.

Currently only Spin+ users have exclusive early access to our Card Boosts feature, which includes both Merchant and Category Boosts.
