Pretty standard stuff as far as store cards go, though the initial discount for opening your account offers some interesting opportunities for big savings. The biggest downside to this card is the brand and mediocre earning rate.
Belk isn’t exactly the largest retailer out there (my attempts at finding a local store seemed to place most of them in Texas). That means for most consumers, the only option to use this card will be through the Belk website.
Earn 3% back on Belk and Belk.com purchases, 2% back on gas and groceries and 1% back on any other purchases you make.
- Signup bonus.
You’ll enjoy up to 25% off purchases made the same day you open your account. You’ll also receive a $10 credit to your Belk card account.
- Intro APR period on balance transfers.
Use a 0% intro APR on balance transfers for 12 months following your account opening. After that, a variable APR of 13.24% to 26.24% applies.
- Belk benefits.
Belk Rewards cardholders can enjoy a variety of store perks when they use their card, including receipt-free returns, access to special sales events, bonus reward events and special savings days each month.
What to watch out for
- High APR.
The Belk Rewards card carries a rather high fixed APR of 25.49%.
- Limited store availability.
Belk store locations are few and far between. They are located only in Texas as of this writing.

Compare store credit cards
If you’re a diehard Belk fan, this rewards card can help you earn decent rewards on your purchases, with room for rewards growth depending on how much you spend at Belk. But the niche nature of this retailer and smaller earning rate compared to other big store cards leaves this credit card lacking.
