The Credit Card Perks Military Members Get

Chase: Chase waives all credit card fees for active duty service members on accounts that were opened before going on active duty. In addition, Chase offers its Blue Star Deployment Program, which offers a 100 percent refund of any interest and fees charged during military deployment. In addition, Chase offers a line of credit cards for members of the military that have no annual or foreign transaction fees, and rewards that never expire.

Citi: Emily Collins, spokeswoman for Citi, says that "During active military service, service member accounts will receive a 0 percent APR and will not be charged such fees as balance transfer fees, annual membership fees and penalty fees such as late fees."

Discover: According to Katie Henry, spokeswoman for Discover Financial Services, "Discover fully complies with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), which for those active duty servicemembers who apply for this benefit, we will, among other things, lower their interest rate below 6 percent."

U.S. Bank: U.S. Bank complies with the SCRA regarding credit card interest rates, and grants all active service members their Platinum Package benefits at no cost, which waives checking fees and annual fees on lines of credit.
