How do I redeem points for cash back?
Based on the points available, you choose the amount of cash back to redeem in $25 increments. With cash back, you have the option to redeem points for cash back as a statement credit, a deposit into your Hancock or Whitney checking account, or receive a check in the mail. Depending on the method, cash back rewards will be received within 10 business days.
Will the statement credit cash back reward replace or go towards a monthly payment?
If a statement credit is chosen; the cash back reward is a credit to the credit card account and does not count towards or replace a monthly payment. Minimum monthly payments should continue to be made to avoid any late fees or charges.
Are there any restrictions for airline ticket redemption?
We do not impose restrictions for booking airfare. Flights may be booked on airlines for available travel dates as long as the airline has seats available. The flights will need to be booked through hancockpointsplus.com or whitneypointsplus.com or by calling 1-800-381-9046. Please see our terms and conditions for additional details.
Do I have to wait until I have enough available points to cover the cost of an airline ticket or hotel stay?
No, Points Plus Rewards allows you to use partial pay for airline ticket and hotel stay redemptions. This means a combination of rewards points and your credit card can be used for airline and hotel reward redemptions. You are able to choose how many or how few points you want to redeem whenever you are ready for a travel reward.
Can a Points Plus Business Rewards customer pool their Points Plus points with their Consumer Platinum Rewards account?
We specifically designed the Points Plus for Business Credit Card to complement the Consumer Platinum Points Plus program. Through a special request submitted to Credit Card Ops, we can move points earned on a Points Plus Business Credit Card account into a related household Points Plus Consumer Platinum Card account.
What about other family members’ cards?
When a credit card is enrolled, all other credit cards sharing the same primary account number are automatically enrolled and combined into one Points Plus rewards account. Once a card is enrolled, it cannot be used to enroll in another Points Plus rewards account.
