Credit Unions Offer 12.5% On An International Line Of Credit Card

Credit Unions today launched ACCESSCREDIT® a unique secure PIN-based line of credit card. It is a card that provides a continuous revolving line of credit with an interest rate that is lower than many credit cards and other finance options.

“To celebrate the launch of ACCESCREDIT®, Credit Unions will offer a special introductory rate* of 12.5% for a three month period for anyone who signs up for the card between 1 July and 30 September 2005”, says David Smart, the Association’s Manager – Finance.

In conjunction with the MasterCard International brand Maestro®, ACCESSCREDIT® can be used at over 9 million retailers and ATM locations in 93 countries. As the card is PIN-based, it is a safer alternative to travellers cheques and cash.

David points out that, “Unlike traditional credit cards, retailers will not have to pay any commission for accepting ACCESSCREDIT® “

Whether you are planning an overseas holiday, have a special purchase in mind, or simply want another option for day-to-day spending ACCESSCREDIT® offers users an unbeatable deal. Purchases made with ACCESSCREDIT® may receive access to free credit for up to 55 days depending on the date of the monthly statement.
