Reviews

The Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard has replaced the old Cabela’s CLUB Visa, and this new card is issued by Capital One rather than Bank of America. The new card is more rewarding for certain purchases, and comes with additional benefits. See the section below for details on this transition, and what to do if you had the old card.

Want to get 5% back on purchases at sporting good stores and gas? Consider an alternative to this card, the Ducks Unlimited Rewards Visa Signature® Card.

Cardholders will earn CLUB points based on their member level at Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, participating Cenex convenience stores, and a variety of affiliated resorts and restaurants. You can see all of those participating locations below.

CLUB Points (at Cabela’s and affiliates) Status Level Annual Spend Requirement
2X CLUB Classic None
3X CLUB Silver $10,000
5X CLUB Black $25,000

1X Club point is provided for every other purchase, at non-affiliated merchants.

Points can be redeemed for purchases at Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shops, at a rate of $1 for 100 points. This means you’ll earn a cash back equivalent of 2–5% at Cabela’s and affiliates, depending on your status level, with 1% back everywhere else.

The annual spend requirements refer to calendar years (January to December). In addition to the spend requirements, eligibility for the Silver and Black status levels will be based on your creditworthiness. The better your credit, the better your chances of approval. The Silver and Black levels also come with different card designs.

It will usually take up to five business days to process your status upgrade after reaching a spend requirement. The new status level will last for the remainder of the current year and for the next year as well. Downgrades will usually be processed in January, based on the previous year’s spending.

Cardholders also get a variety of benefits, including extra point opportunities through the Gear Guide. Silver and Black status members have access to Signature Outdoor Adventures, and invitations to exciting workshops and training events through The Experiences program. There are also several purchase and travel protections provided by Capital One. Cardholders at the Classic and Silver levels will receive World Mastercards, while those at the Black level will receive a World Elite Mastercard with enhanced benefits.

Unlike most cards, the Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard has different interest rates depending on where you’re shopping. Purchases made at Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops will have an APR of 9.99%, while all other purchases will get the APR shown below.

The Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard has no annual fee, and there are no foreign transaction fees.

Bass Pro Shops offers the same card product, which is identical in every respect except the name and card design: The Bass Pro Shops CLUB Card.

What You Need to Know About the Transition from Visa to Mastercard

If you had the original Cabela’s CLUB Visa, you should receive a new Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard by December 2018. If you don’t receive a new card contact Capital One at 1-800-227-4825.

There are quite a few things to be aware of regarding your new card and account:

  • You must activate your new card and set up an account with Capital One before you can use it, which you can do by clicking that link or calling 1-800-300-5984.
  • If you already have a Capital One account, you can sign in with your regular login details to link the Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard to your account.
  • You’ll now be logging in to your online account through Capital One, rather than Bank of America.
  • Your old Visa card will be deactivated soon after you receive a new card.
  • Your new card will have a new account number and other details.
  • Your new card will not show up as a new account on your credit reports, it will remain the same.
  • You may get new interest rates, with a new billing due date and minimum payment.
  • If you set up automatic payments or were paying for any subscriptions with the old card, you’ll need to set up those services again with the new card.
  • You’ll be able to see the last 12 months of statements in your new online account (this may take 30 days to transfer).
  • Any rewards you earned with your previous card will be transferred to your new card account.
  • Any authorized users on your account will remain, and they will be issued new cards with new account numbers (the cards will be sent to the primary user’s address).

Where can I use my Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard®?

The Cabela’s CLUB Mastercard can be used anywhere Mastercard is accepted. Cardholders will earn extra cash back, depending on their status level, at Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, participating Cenex convenience stores, and the affiliated resorts and restaurants below.

Cabela’s Capital One card is horrible

I’ve had the Cabela’s Club VISA card that was offered by Cabela’s own bank (World’s Foremost Bank) and had the best customer service for many years! They were better than anyone else and I enjoyed using this card for purchases and gaining the points at Cabela’s. With the merger of Cabela’s and Bass Pro and the changeover to Capital One MasterCard I can assure you that this experience is now the worst! The Customer Service Reps are arrogant and not at all helpful and the tools I had once used to alert me to payments due, charges, etc. seem to be unavailable or buried under levels of menus on their website. A call today to understand why I wasn’t getting my statements electronically and being charged interest for a payment that I didn’t get any alerts on was a fruitless waste of time! The CSR and her supervisor “Asia” couldn’t even say my name correctly and refused to do anything helpful.I’ll contrast this experience with one that I had with Discover Card a couple of months ago when I went through an paid off all outstanding debt. Discover Card recognized that I was a longtime member and forgave 4 months of interest charges when I paid off my card!! When I shared this expereince with Cabela’s Capital One their response was “so that’s nice, we don’t do that here”!I’m not so stupid as to close this account but trust me when I say I’m done using it! Cabela’s made a mistake going with Capital One and I’ve taken this card out of my wallet and Apple Pay as a result. I like the store but hate the card now - hopefully Cabela’s will take notice of these multiple bad experiences.

I agree with Warren Monroe, Scott Thomas and Mark Brewer just to mention a few. Every since capitol one took over it sucks. Customer service sucks and charges are always adding up on the statements. I am canceling my membership. What a freaking rip off. I am having a terrible time just trying to opt out of my membership. It shouldn't be this difficult. I am letting all my folks know about this crap. It's so bad that I had to write a stinking review. Right before I press submit, they ask you to check a box to confirm if you are a human. That tells you a lot.

Watch how they run the card!!!!

We have been a Cabela's card holder for years! And very happy until recently. We wanted to earn some points to purchase an overpriced scope, we can buy it much cheaper at the local store, but had majority of it paid for in points. Wanted to receive some more points by paying off our truck loan. We had cash to immediately pay back the credit card, was just looking for points. Whether it be my fault for not reading the 82 pages of fine print or the bank for not informing me or whatever, the bank ran the card as what I thought was a normal transaction to pay the loan. I when in the next day to pay the Cabela's card off and to my surprise there was no extra points there should have been an additional 300 points, and there wasn't a single one. Not only that but the card was ran as a cash advance and it charged me $135. I called Cabelas and they "understood" but there was "nothing they could do". They didn't do a thing, no points no removal of fees. Nothing. Like I said we were super happy up to this point. They could see that I didn't get a cash advance, I turned around and paid it the next day and still nothing. We will be closing our account and going back to Visa. Apparently you need to double-check everybody else's work too.

VISA vs MASTER CARD

I agree with all the previous reviewers. Since the change from Visa to Master Card the entire experience has been terrible. I as well will be using my points and soon after will be cancelling my beloved CABELA'S VISA .....

Fraudulent Charges Keep Cominng

I was a happy Cabela's Club VISA card holder for many years with no problems. As soon as the conversion to Capitol One was done by Bass Pro Shops I started seeing fraudulent charges showing up. I have to watch my statements like a hawk. Worse yet fraudulent charges to merchants I had already disputed continued to occur. I'm no longer happy and will likely cancel my card!
