  • Advance ticket sales and VIP access to games, shows, and events
  • Access to the Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection, which offers cardholders VIP amenities at over 900 select properties worldwide

“Adding our new Visa Signature credit card to our suite of credit and debit cards gives our members more options and choices to meet their individual needs,” said Ron Felder, RCU’s Executive Vice President & Chief Lending Officer. “We’re excited to offer a premium credit card for those seeking added benefits and rewards.”

In addition to the new Signature card, RCU offers a Platinum rewards card and a Credit Builder card for those who are new to credit or need to repair their credit history. The credit union also offers credit cards for business owners. All RCU credit cards offer low rates, a free rewards program, the ability to combine credit and debit card points, free online credit score access, and no annual fee, foreign transaction fee, or balance transfer fee.
