If you like to shop for outdoor clothing and equipment, the L.L.Bean Mastercard offers some solid rewards: 4% cash back at L.L.Bean, with 2% back at gas stations and restaurants.
The rewards you earn will be in the form of Bean Bucks. Bean Bucks won’t expire as long as you use your card at least once every 24 months.
Just for having the card, you get exclusive sales and special offers at L.L.Bean, as well as free shipping on returns. You’ll also get free monogramming for any L.L.Bean clothing you buy with the card.
As of July 2018, the L.L.Bean Mastercard is issued by Citi. It was previously issued by Barclays as part of the Visa network, as the L.L.Bean Visa Card.
Since the switch to Citi, we’ve been seeing a lot of reports of problems using the card or dealing with customer service. You may want to review those comments before applying for this card.
