NASA FCU Launches Star Trek Cards

CU gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'card-carrying Trekkie.'

November 5, 2015

NASA Federal Credit Union has given a whole new meaning to the phrase “card-carrying Trekkie.”

The $1.6 billion asset credit union in Bowie, Md., recently launched a series of Star Trek-branded credit cards, forming what Spock might deem a “highly logical” connection between the 1960s scificult favorite and a credit union rooted in a space exploration organization.

NASA Federal’s Star Trek Platinum Advantage Rewards credit card portfolio (nasafcu.com/startrek) includes four designs: the Starfleet Academy Alumni, Starfleet Command, United Federation of Planets, and the Captain’s Card.

CBS Consumer Products officially licenses the cards, which feature no balance transfer fee and competitive interest rates, including a lifetime 7.9% annual percentage rate on balance transfers.

Cardholders gain access to exclusive Star Trek merchandise and experiences and receive triple rewards points on purchases from startrek.com.

“We’re excited to offer these new cards to Star Trek enthusiasts to express their support every time they use the card,” says Doug Allman, NASA Federal president/CEO.
