Edward Jones credit cards

Use your Edward Jones credit card to earn and redeem Loyalty Points® for cash deposits into your Edward Jones account

What is an investment credit card?

An investment credit card enables you to make and charge purchases or payments, while earning rewards, such as points or cash back, that you can directly deposit into your investment account to buy securities, like stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Investment credit cards are also referred to as brokerage credit cards.

One major benefit of an investment credit card is that it is a passive investment tool, meaning it’s an easy way to save money and/or increase your investments, without having to change your savings habits since you are investing money you didn’t originally have. It, however, can change your spending habits in a positive way, encouraging you to align your charges with rewards according to your card’s terms and limitations, helping you make the most of your spending.

How does an investment credit card work?

An investment credit card basically functions like most credit cards that offer rewards for your spending activity. You can use it to make purchases or payments and earn rewards according to the terms and conditions of your card. Some firms offer cash back while others award points for every dollar you charge. Those reward points can be redeemed for gift cards, travel, merchandise or even cash, which can be deposited into your brokerage account to fund investments.

Typically, financial services companies offer bonus dollars or points when you open an account and may even offer an introductory offer like Edward Jones for balance transfers or other special deals.

In most instances, there is a credit limit, as well as an annual percentage rate (APR) charged for purchases, cash advances and balance transfers. Many times, there are also other fees – an annual fee, check fees, foreign transaction fees, etc., similar to other types of credit cards.

You will want to read the fine print to understand the specifics of how your credit card works, and what and how you can use earned rewards.

Can I use an investment credit card if I have a brokerage account?

You can use an investment credit card to invest your rewards in a brokerage account in many cases, especially if it is offered by or in partnership with a brokerage firm with which you have an account, and your account is in good standing. It’s a great way to buy and sell bonds, stocks and other securities through your broker and grow your investment portfolio. Be sure to read the terms and conditions of your card to understand how you can use your card and any earned rewards. Reach out to your Edward Jones financial advisor with any questions.
