Best credit card offer ever. Hurry, only first 100 card members qualify


That’s right.  Sign up for the JAL USA CARD MasterCard and you might get a compact desk size calendar.  This is coming from First Bankcard, a division of First National Bank of Omaha.  Chase, Barclays, Citi, and Amex need to step up their game!

Note: While the offer shown above is real, this post is intended to be a joke. I absolutely do not recommend signing up for a credit card just to possibly get a calendar.  Well, maybe if they threw in some address labels…

Thanks go to the reader who sent this my way!

  1. I was going to apply until I read the fine print… *The image shown is for illustration purpose only. Actual desk calendar may be different for the above illustration. … and for that reason, I’m out.

  2. The koolaid their marketing department is drinking has to be laced with a 60’s drug………there is no other reasonable explanation………..
    Happy Thanksgiving Greg and thanks for the humor!

  3. I double dare a Boarding Area blogger to scoop up these and try to give them away at the next Frequent Traveler University during the “Everyone wins something worthless” part of the program………….Actually these could be collectors items of great value!

    • I applied and missed out on a calendar as well. 2nd place was 200,000 JAL miles. But seriously, bonuses on this scale (the calendar, not the miles) are about par for what we get when signing up for affinity credit cards here in Japan.

  4. These Japanese airlines are getting way too generous. ANA emailed me an ecoupon for my birthday for $20 off a flight from North America to Japan or Asia! No need to use miles with discounts like that. And there’s no limit to the number of companions eligible! If I buy 4 tickets I’ll get $80 – and that could buy several desk calendars.

  5. I think in the end, the JAL card will have the last laugh bc after all the airlines devaluation, its the JAL card and award chart most of us will want.
