• Credit Cards Cater to Consumers Wants, Needs, Desires

    GTE Financial has released a trio of new credit cards designed to help its members increase their credit limits, lower their rates, build credit or earn triple rewards. The Go Forward, Go To and Go Signature cards reveal a chic, vertical design with each one catering to a group of consumers who use their cards in different ways.

    The credit cards are a unique offering that sets GTE Financial apart and challenges bigger banks in the credit card arena. The Go Forward card is ideal for building credit, while the Go To offers rates as low as 7.24%, the lowest in the area, and benefits, such as skipping a payment during the holiday months. The Go Signature features one of the best rewards programs available for cardholders who appreciate earning points for cash back, travel, gift cards and more. The Go Signature card offers triple points on gas, travel and home improvement! The card also rewards cardholders with double points on grocery purchases and automated billing.

    “We’re proud to give our members customized card options that truly fit their lifestyles and help contribute to their financial success,” says Dona Svehla, Chief Lending Officer of GTE Financial. “We realize that one size does not fit all, so we evaluated our members’ needs and carefully chose benefits for each card that caters to them, whether they’re trying to build credit or earn rewards towards a once-in-a-lifetime trip.”

    All three credit cards include the benefits typically offered by bigger financial institutions at no additional cost, such as security alerts, smart chip technology, no liability, the ability to design your own card, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay and Visa Checkout. The new suite of credit cards is the first of many new products and services in the pipeline for the cooperative in 2017.
