How to Earn Exclusive Upper Deck Infinite Cards Using Your Credit Card

For many collectors, credit cards and trading cards go together like peanut butter and jelly. Traditionally, it's the credit card that buys the sealed wax or vintage rookie. A new credit card lets collectors earn exclusive 2012 Upper Deck Infinite cards.

To earn the cards, collectors have to sign up and use a Dynamics ePlate Visa. But to get the real cards, users have to finish a virtual set first.

For every $10 spent using the high-tech credit card, collectors earn one virtual card. "Packs" of seven virtual cards can also be bought at any time for $1.50. After building a complete 250-virtual card set, collectors get a pack of physical Upper Deck Infinite cards.

Virtual cards are available in football, basketball and golf. Each is a separate set. To get the physical cards, a full set from one sport has to be finished. Virtual cards are digital versions of cards that have already been released. Upper Deck Infinite is a standalone set featuring an all-new design. Each sport has 30 different Upper Deck Infinite cards as well as randomly inserted autographs.

Virtual cards are distributed randomly, similar to how you'd build a set by busting packs.

The battery-powered Dynamics ePlate Visa works in conjunction with a Smart Phone. After making a purchase, users are prompted to select a reward. Others include comics, charitable donations and video games. The credit card has a $99 annual fee.

Full details on the Dynamics ePlate Visa and an application for the credit card are available here.

Below are the checklists for the 2012 Upper Deck Infinite sets (the physical cards). It is worth noting that the golf set includes Rory McIlroy. Although an oddball issue, this could be his first card from a major manufacturer and could carry some clout in the future.

  1. Let me see if I have this straight…

    $99 annual fee for the credit card.

    $2500 in purchases to accumulate 250 virtual cards, which includes duplicates. Probably twice that before you get the last card needed to complete a 250-card set.

    All to get a one physical pack of cards that might contain an autograph?

    This is a stretch for me. I put a lot of charges on my credit card each month, but I’ll stick with my cash back.
