The Elvis Presley Visa Platinum Rewards Card is being offered through a partnership between Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. and CardPartner, Inc. The affinity card benefits the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation which was established in 1984 to carry on the King’s philanthropic and charitable work. Some of the organizations benefiting from the card include Little Kids Rock, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the University of Memphis, and Presley Place.
Elvis fans invited to participate in a focus group during Graceland’s 2009 Elvis week chose five designs for the Elvis Presley credit card. One of the designs features a rare black and white picture of the King standing in front of his Graceland mansion. The other four designs feature well-known photos of various Elvis performances.
Applying is quick and easy via the CardPartner website. Customers will enter the required information standard on all credit card applications, while the secure server will verify the entered address for accuracy. Applicants will be asked to provide, among other things, their monthly housing payment.
The Elvis Presley credit card, like all cards offered through CardPartner, is issued through UMB Bank of Kansas City, MO. UMB administers the entire credit card program including credit checks, application approval, billing, collection, and account management. Inquiries regarding application or account issues should be directed to UMB Bank.
Bank of America was previously licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises to offer an Elvis affinity card. That agreement has since expired and the card is no longer available. Consumers should not confuse the Bank of America card with this new UMB-issued card.

Elvis Presley credit card users can earn points to be redeemed through hundreds of participating retailers, for things like free airline travel, merchandise, services, and more.
