Review the benefits of the United TravelBank Card, calculate how much TravelBank Cash you can earn based on your spend, and compare results to top cards.


The United Airlines TravelBank Card is a unique cash back card that earns rewards specific to United Airlines. It's similar to using the other United Airlines credit cards but without all the extra benefits and earning categories. When it comes to the United cards, this is the worst card in the bunch if you're looking to apply rewards towards United Airlines travel.

United TravelBank Cash Value

TravelBank Cash earned with the United TravelBank Card works similar to your standard cash back card. You will earn a certain amount of TravelBank Cash based on the spend you run through the card. That earned TravelBank Cash can then be applied towards United Purchases.

The big difference between earning TravelBank Cash and United Miles is that TravelBank Cash will always be worth face value while United Miles can have a range of values depending on how you redeem them. $0.01 in TravelBank Cash has a value of $0.01 towards United purchases, but 1 United Miles can be worth more or less than $0.01 (generally worth more).

The primary benefit that the TravelBank Card has over other United Card is that it earns 1.5% back on non-United purchases whereas most of the United Miles-earning cards earn 1 United Mile. More times than not, 1.5% back in TravelCash will be worth more than 1 United Mile.
