Visa Credit Card FAQs
- What is a Credit Card?
A Credit Card is a card used to charge purchases from merchants without directly linking the purchase to your share or share draft account. People use credit cards for many reasons; primarily for security when purchasing from merchants online or for emergency purchases. Another reason credit cards are useful is they help build and maintain good credit standing if they are used responsibly and their balances are kept low.

- What are the different types of Credit Card Products I can apply for?
At Your Legacy FCU, we offer two types of VISA Credit Cards. The VISA Classic Credit Card is our low-rate card for members that are not concerned with rewards and want the lowest amount of interest charged as possible. The VISA Platinum Credit Card still boasts a lower rate, but also offers rewards through UChoose Rewards at 1.5 reward points per dollar spent. The types of rewards you can redeem are gift cards, merchandise, and cash-back that can be used for whatever you want! If you are new to the credit world, we have options for you, too! We offer Share Secured VISA Classic and Platinum Credit Cards, as well. Share Secured cards are cards that utilize a sum of money that we hold in an account as security for the credit line.
