Review: Camping World / Good Sam Credit Card

good-sam-camping-world-visaIf you are a camping and/or RV enthusiast, you might be interested in the rewards available with the Camping World/ Good Sam credit card. Our overview / review of the card is below:

The Camping World / Good Sam Visa is good for purchases anywhere Visa credit cards are accepted. It offers reward points using the following formula:

  • Earn 5 points per dollar on purchases at Camping World online, catalog or in store.
  • Earn 5 points per dollar on Good Sam membership dues and most products like insurance, travel assist, events, etc.
  • Earn 3 points per dollar on gas purchases as well as on purchases at RV parks & campgrounds across the United States, including Good Sam Parks (but any others as well).
  • Earn 1 point per dollar on all other card purchases.

You’ll also get 2000 bonus points when you use the card for the first time.

Points can be used for a variety of rewards, including Camping World gift cards, gas gift cards, cash back, airline tickets, and more.

The card has an interest rate of 14.99% for most cardholders, BUT it also reserves the right to approve you at a 20.99% rate or 25.99% rate if your credit history is not as good. You do not want a credit card with a 25.99% interest rate! So, if your credit is shaky, don’t choose the Camping World Good Sam card. If your credit is good, the interest rate is OK, though we still recommend you never carry a balance on this or any credit card — the interest you pay will cancel out some or all of the rewards you earn.

The Camping World / Good Sam Club credit card is issued in partnership with Comenity Bank. You can apply via this online application.
