- Assessing the Benefits of FoundersCard
- 18 FoundersCard Travel Benefits (Status, Discounts, and Freebies)
- FoundersCard Membership: Is it worth it?
Update: You can lock in a FoundersCard membership for $295 a year through May 13th, 2016 when you sign-up with my link. This is $100 less than the usual rate!
Peeps are curious about FoundersCard. The many posts I’ve written are amongst my most-Googled. And a good 1/3 of reader emails ask about a specific benefit.
So I thought I’d post an update, as I still have and use mine regularly.
In fact, I just used it to join the Equinox in Dallas – and got $29 knocked off my monthly rate thanks to FoundersCard.
Now I’m not saying “join Equinox!” Instead, I’d say FoundersCard is worth it if you have a particular benefit in mind, like:
- 15% off your AT&T bill
- Free Caesars Total Rewards Diamond Status
- Silver status with Virgin America or Cathay Pacific
- Gold status with Hilton
- A year of free TripIt Pro
- Free Zipcar membership and lower monthly rates
Any one of these benefits can make up FoundersCard’s $395 annual fee if you really maximize it. And more if you can make use of 2 or 3 (or more) of them.
For example, I save about $20 a month off my AT&T bill.
I’ve grown to love the service and use the app constantly for my travel plans. Would I pay for it? Maybe. But I won’t have to think about it for another year, because the next one is free thanks to FoundersCard.
