Whether you're a Lands' End loyalist or you just enjoy the sturdy canvas bags and clothing that the retailer is known for, you may want to take a look at the $0-annual-fee Lands' End® Visa® Credit Card.

Issued by Comenity Bank, the card offers discounts and deals valuable to anyone who frequents the store or website. But there are some restrictions to be aware of.

Here are five things to know about the Lands' End® Visa® Credit Card.

1. It offers solid rewards rates at Lands' End and on other purchases ...

The main reason to get a credit card affiliated with your favorite place to shop is for the rewards and perks you get while shopping with that merchant. The Lands' End® Visa® Credit Card earns:

  • 5 points per $1 spent on all Lands' End purchases, including in-store and online.

  • 2 points per $1 spent at gas stations, restaurants and on travel (which includes car rentals, airlines, cruise lines, hotels, motels and resorts). All other spending earns 1 point per $1 spent.

  • 1 point per $1 spent elsewhere.

2. ... But there are redemption restrictions

Points are worth a penny each but are redeemable only for Rewards Certificates, which you can use only toward eligible purchases at Lands' End stores, from the catalog and on LandsEnd.com.

There's both a minimum redemption threshold and a cap: You must have accumulated at least 500 points first — which would equal a $5 Rewards Certificate — but the maximum for a Rewards Certificate is $500 per billing cycle.

Once you reach that $5 threshold, rewards are automatically sent to you each billing cycle. That's good if you don't want to be bothered with remembering to redeem; after all, the points you earn will expire 12 months after the date they were posted to your account, and Reward Certificates have to be used with 60 days from when they were issued.

But automatic redemption is not so good if you were planning to "bank" rewards over time and use them toward a major purchase.

In any case, you can't combine them with other offers. Also, if a Reward Certificate value exceeds the cost of the purchase, you don't get to keep the balance. It will be forfeited.

3. The perks can be valuable

In lieu of a traditional welcome offer of cash back or other rewards, the first Lands' End order you place with your new Lands' End® Visa® Credit Card will be half off. The card also offers the following incentives:

  • Make your first purchase outside of the brand within 60 days of opening the account and get a $20 Lands' End gift card.

  • Pay with the card for a Lands' End order of $100 or more during your birthday month and get $50 off your order.

  • Get free shipping on all Lands' End purchases without any minimum purchase restrictions.

All of these savings might make you feel OK about splurging on matching pajamas for you and your dog. But we would encourage you to think twice about that.

4. You can use it the same day you're approved, with some caveats

If you're approved, the Land's End® Visa® Credit Card will be automatically applied to the order currently in progress through the store's website. But for all other purchases, including sales at brick-and-mortar Land's End stores or online, you'll have to wait until you receive the physical card in the mail.

5. Avoid carrying a balance

The Land's End® Visa® Credit Card charges an APR that, on the high end of the range, can be more than 25% (as of January 2022). You'll want to pay your balance in full and on time; otherwise, you'll be charged interest that will eat away at the value of any rewards you might earn.

Find the right credit card for you.

Whether you want to pay less interest or earn more rewards, the right card's out there. Just answer a few questions and we'll narrow the search for you.
