The Fall 2013 issue of the Pheasants Forever Journal is landing in members’ mailboxes right now.  The entire magazine team is thrilled with this issue. From its stunning cover of a flushing rooster to a behind-the-scenes look at the Rooster Road Trip, this issue is filled with great photography and fun stories from pheasant country.  It also features a new advertisement from U.S. Bank, one of our organization’s most generous corporate partners.

U.S. Bank is the official credit card provider of the Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Visa program. And thanks to 2,200 active users of our special Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Visa cards, U.S. Bank has donated over $600,000 to “The Habitat Organization.” That’s a lot of funds generated for habitat by 2,200 card holders in an organization of more than 135,000 members.

We all have credit cards for our daily purchases – fuel, groceries, Prairie Storm ammo, hunting licenses, Irish Setter boots, etc. – so, why not use a credit card that gives back to the same mission you give so much passion towards?  A new couch purchase helps us fund a shelter belt planting project. Your monthly car insurance payment helps us introduce another youngster to the outdoors.  A new shotgun at Gander Mountain leads to a new public hunting area.

It’s true. Every time a Pheasants Forever Visa Card application is approved and activated, Pheasants Forever gets paid. Each time a Pheasants Forever Visa Card celebrates another anniversary, Pheasants Forever gets paid. And, each and every time any Pheasants Forever Visa Card is used to make a purchase, Pheasants Forever gets paid. You can make a difference for wildlife through the act of simply putting your Pheasants Forever Visa Card in the front of your wallet and using it for all your purchases. Imagine how many habitat dollars we could raise if 10 percent of our members carried the Pheasants Forever Visa!

And one final point, the folks at U.S. Bank are avid hunters just like you and me.  They share our same passion for days afield with bird dogs and flushing roosters.  Simply put; they get it!  Help us support our shared goals by signing up for the Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever Visa Card today and join us on this year’s Rooster Road Trip beginning on October 28th.

U.S. Bank also happens to be a proud sponsor of every Rooster Road Trip because they agree with our habitat mission and our desire to create public access for all bird hunters.  Thanks U.S. Bank and thanks to the 2,200 Pheasants Forever Visa Card holders.

You’ll be entered to win the TriStar Setter S/T to be given away that night. It’ll be the cheapest raffle you enter, and even if you don’t win, feel good about the fact that all cards give a percentage of every net purchase back to Pheasants Forever.

Charging Ahead for Habitat

Monday, October 31st, 2011

 

The Pheasants Forever Visa credit card has generated over half a million dollars for habitat.

Are you looking for a new credit card?  Okay, don’t stop reading so fast. 

 

I know, I know; no one actively seeks out a new credit card.  No one has the time to fill out the details or wants to take the credit score hit by applying for a new card.  I get it.  But did you know the Pheasants Forever Visa Card can turn your everyday purchases into habitat?

 

A new couch purchase helps us fund a shelter belt planting project.

Your monthly car insurance payment helps us introduce another youngster to the outdoors.

A new shotgun at Gander Mountain leads to a new public hunting area.

It’s true.  In the last six years, proceeds from the Pheasants Forever Visa Card have generated more than $500,000 for our habitat and youth education mission.  That’s right; A Half Million Dollars! 

 

Every time a PF Visa Card application is approved; Pheasants Forever gets paid.

Every time a PF Visa Card is activated; Pheasants Forever gets paid.

And, each and every time any PF Visa Card is used to make any purchase; Pheasants Forever gets paid.

 

We all carry credit cards to buy airline tickets, fill up the gas tank and pay bills.  You love pheasant hunting and understand the importance of habitat.  You can make a difference for wildlife through the act of simply cutting up one of your non-descript credit cards and replacing it with a Pheasants Forever Visa Card.

 

And one final point, the folks at U.S. Bank (issuers of the Pheasants Forever Visa Card) are hunters.  They share our same passion for days afield with bird dogs and flushing roosters.  They get it.  Help us support our shared goals by signing up for a PF Visa Card today and join us on the Rooster Road Trip beginning on November 14th.  U.S. Bank is a proud sponsor of this year’s Rooster Road Trip too.

 

This new Pheasants Forever Visa card design is also available through U.S. Bank.
