Good Starter Card
lgross2441 Cardholder

I've been using this card for about a year and a half as my first credit card - I had no established credit at the time and was having difficulty get approved by other banks. However, since I'd had a PNC checking account for several years and had all my income go straight to that account via direct deposit, I figured I'd give this a try. I called PNC and was approved pretty much immediately, and was given a 200% credit limit increase after a year by my request. Not bad at all. 

As far as rewards go...better than nothing but far from the best. You get 4 points per dollar on qualifying purchases, sure. But they don't tell you that you need a LOT of points to redeem anything worth it. For direct points-to-cash, it's 500 points per dollar. So basically, you get 0.80% rewards for each qualifying dollar spent. It's more worth it to redeem for gift cards - for example, right now, a $5 Amazon gift card is 2,270 points: that's 454 points per dollar, or 0.88% rewards for each qualifying dollar spent. 

Other than that, not much to say. I haven't had much reason to contact their customer support, but the few times I have (for example, I lost my credit card once a year back), their customer service was perfectly adequate.

No issue redeeming for flights
Anonymous Cardholder

Reward rate is a little low, but I've used for flights on numerous occasions and never had any issue.

PNC Took Over my Other Card
FuryD Cardholder

This was a few years ago, but PNC took over  RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) in the US. I was one of those who was moved to PNC. I had a rewards credit card through RBC, but never paid attention to those points. When PNC reissued my card, they honored the points I had accumulated through RBC. Nice touch starting off.

I bank with PNC, so making payments online is a snap. Checking my statements online is a snap. I've happy with the PNC Visa card.
