Tech CU Launches Three New Credit Cards

These include a Visa Signature with Rewards and Visa Classic (Secured and Unsecured)

San Jose, Calif. – August 15, 2016 – Tech CU (Technology Credit Union) today began offering three new credit cards: a Visa Signature with Rewards, Visa Classic Secured and Visa Classic Unsecured. Accepted worldwide, all three cards offer a safe and secure way to purchase items with no annual fee or foreign transaction fees. The cards also offer convenient online and mobile access with automatic payment options, quick approvals and chip-enabled security. They can be used as overdraft protection for a Tech CU checking account in addition to providing auto rental collision protection.

“We’re excited to be able to offer these credit cards to our members — with different options depending on what you are looking for as a consumer,” said Todd Harris, CEO of Tech CU.

“We have a great rewards program for those choosing to build points towards purchases or travel. We also have a card that can help you build or establish credit. And, if you are looking for a card with a low interest rate, we’ve got you covered,” said Jeannie Sugaoka, SVP of Support Services at Tech CU. “Plus, because this program is fully managed in-house, we’re able to offer quicker approvals and have more control over quality.”

Below is a listing of each credit card’s features:

  • Tech CU VISA Signature with Rewards Points: Allows users to earn 1.25 reward points for every dollar spent on purchases. Points can be redeemed for merchandise, travel, gift cards and more.
  • Tech CU Visa Classic Card (Secured): Designed specifically to help people establish or rebuild credit.
  • Tech CU VISA Classic Card (Unsecured): Offers the lowest interest rate among the three cards. Great for everyday purchases.
