Now Linux fans can show off their Linux branded Platinum Credit Cards and express their support for the Linux Foundation.
The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports Linux - a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds and currently supported by a big community of developers and users around the world.
Among its most recent initiatives, the Linux Foundation is partnering with CardPartner to offer the affinity Linux credit card through UMB Bank. With this card everyone can contribute, since the foundation will receive a small percentage for every transaction made with the card, in addition to 50 dollars for each new card activated. All funds from the Visa card program will go directly toward sponsoring community technical events and providing travel grants for open source community members in order to accelerate Linux innovation. Linux Foundation-branded Visa Platinum card members can earn bonus points redeemable towards free merchandise, airline tickets, and more at hundreds of online and neighborhood retailers.
What are other features of this credit card?
- No annual fee and 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first six months
- Purchase protection and Zero liability protection for unauthorized purchases
- Emergency cash and card replacement, Lost luggage replacement, Lost/stolen card reporting service and 24-hour roadside assistance
