Green Power Credit Card Rewards

Wells Fargo & Co. said April 19 that it is rolling out a new green rewards program for users of its credit card. When users earn points for making purchases with the card, they can redeem them for renewable energy certificates. For example, the company said, "For 5,000 points, cardholders can support 6,000 kilowatt hours of green power . . . equivalent to the clean air benefits of three acres of pine forest storing carbon for one year." Wells Fargo is also the largest U.S. purchaser of green power, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's official listing.

It should be also interesting for this blog's readers that credit cards for donation to environment protection are also issued by Chase bank. For example, Chase BP card gives you cash back and gift points which your can redeem for donations to reservation fund. I'm glad to have such a card.
