Credit Cards

If you’re a practical person, someone who is smart about money, then you’re going to want to get and use the Meridian Trust Visa Credit Card. It just makes sense. If you’re the type of person who happens to carry a balance from month to month, then you’ll certainly appreciate the low interest rate. That will save you a lot of money over time. If you’re someone who pays off their balance each month, then you’ll appreciate the fact that there’s no annual fee. And no matter who you are, we’re certain you’ll appreciate the fact that if you have any questions about your credit card, that you can reach out to your local credit union personnel, the same people you interact with regularly. Now that’s smart!
