Share-Secured Visa® Power Card™ Benefits:

With the UECU Share-Secured Visa® Power Card™ you can apply and be approved for a credit limit up to the amount currently available in your Share Savings Account. The amount of the credit limit is put "on hold" in your account but you continue to earn interest on these funds. What could be easier?

 

Benefits of the UECU Share-Secured Visa® Power Card™:

  • Low variable rate See rates page.
  • Rate is based on Wall Street Journal Prime Rate (“index”) plus 0.00% (“margin”) and may vary and adjust accordingly.
  • This card is 100% share secured which allows for a lower rate than our other credit cards.
  • Looking for a card that offers rewards? The Share-Secured Visa Power Card™ offers VantagePoints™ - a rewards network that can be used towards cash back, gift certificates and loan rate discounts! Receive 1 VantagePoint™ for every $1.00 spent*.
  • Save money with no cash advance or balance transfer fees. UECU does not charge you a percentage of the amount you advance or the amount you transfer from another credit card. Most credit card companies will charge you anywhere from 3.00% to 5.00% of the amount advanced or transferred.
