LL Bean's tagline is "The Outside Is Inside Everything We Make." The company was founded way back in 1912 out of Freeport, Maine, and its creator, Leon Leonwood Bean, started by selling just one product — the Maine Hunting Shoe, also known as duck boots or Bean boots.
In the 110 years since then, the store has expanded to sell a full line of clothing, from outerwear to footwear, daily clothing, and pajamas. All with the same end in mind — making clothes that keep you warm, cozy, and dry while sporting classic styles. The store also sells outdoor equipment, such as backpacks, tents, and firearms.
Starting in 2018, LL Bean paired with Mastercard to replace the existing LL Bean Visa cards. Anyone who had an LL Bean Visa card simply had to activate their new card and destroy the old one to seamlessly continue their account. The LL Bean Mastercard is a rewards credit card that's available to those with a good credit score, usually over 700. The card offers a number of perks, especially when it's used at the name store.
You can use the LL Bean Mastercard anywhere Mastercard is accepted, not just at an LL Bean store. That means you can use it at 10.7 million merchants in the United States as well as in over 21 other countries.
