Union Credit Cards

One of the complaints some consumers have about using credit cards are the interest rates and annual fees associated with many of them. Credit union credit cards, however, tend not to have many of the issues most complained about. With low interest rates and no annual fees, credit union credit cards can be a tremendous benefit for credit union members.

Credit unions are different from banks in that the members of the credit union actually play a role in its overall operation. If someone takes out a loan from the credit union, they are required to have an account (checking or savings) as well. With this account comes a number of opportunities that regular banks do not normally offer.

One of these advantages are credit union credit cards. Credit unions attempt to bring in new customers (or members) with accounts that have greater rates of return and loans with lower interest rates than competing institutions. Many also offer credit union credit cards.

These cards are issued by the credit union and do not require the same kind of credit check that many other credit issuers do. As a result, someone with a lesser credit record can get one of the credit union credit cards simply because they have an account with the credit union. In some cases, credit union credit cards are issued simply because the consumer has an account and does not even need to apply for one.

Credit union credit cards also have a number of other benefits. Their credit limits are normally in line with other cards (though that depends on the income of the card holder), and the interest rates, like the loans that can be taken out through the credit union, tend to be several percentage points lower than competing cards. Credit union credit cards also come without an annual fee and their associated fees also tend to be below those of competing cards.

Credit union credit cards are not commonly considered by many consumers, but hold the potential of being highly valuable. Members of credit unions can put these cards to work for themselves and save a lot of money in comparison to those consumers using other kinds of credit cards.
