American Eagle offers a store card and a fully functional credit card to its customers issued by Synchrony bank.
The American Eagle Rewards Visa credit card is powered by VISA and can be used globally. The other card is a closed-loop card that works as a store card only.
Where to Apply for an American Eagle Credit Card?
The American Eagle credit card is issued by Synchrony Bank and powered by VISA. The credit card has two versions.
The Real Rewards by American Eagle & Aerie Credit Card is a closed-loop card that can only be used for shopping at American Eagle stores and its online portal.
The Real Rewards by American Eagle & Aerie Visa Card is the standard credit card that you can use anywhere Visa cards are accepted.
Both cards come with discrete benefits and usages. Also, the qualification criteria for both cards would be different. You’ll need a stronger credit score to qualify for the Visa credit card as compared to the store card.
Once you have compared both cards and decided on the right one, you can visit Synchrony bank’s credit card page to apply online. You can find the link through the Americal Eagle credit card page as well.
You can apply for these credit cards directly by visiting the nearest American Eagle store and applying manually there. However, it may take longer than the direct online application process.
How to Create the American Eagle Credit Card login?
You’ll first need to create the credit card profile with the American Eagle online portal. Visit the link for card members at the American Eagle official page or directly from the Synchrony bank and follow the prompts.
You can use the same page to apply for a credit card online. The credit card account registration and application links for a new one are available on the same page.
Provide your personal details like your social security number, mobile number, date of birth, address, etc. to prove your identity. Follow the prompts online to complete the credit card application process.

Your online credit card account activation will be complete in a few minutes and you’ll be able to manage the American Eagle credit card online easily.
