Four Good Reasons to Use Your Credit Card

Credit cards can be a valuable and more secure alternative to using cash or debit to make purchases. Continue reading for four good reasons to choose your SeaComm Visa®!

Build your credit. While you can build credit without using a credit card, it’s not as easy. By making regular purchases with your credit card and paying them off, you are showing lenders that you are a responsible borrower! This will enable you to easily borrow more money in the future, if need be.

Earn rewards. When you use your SeaComm Visa®, you will earn one point for each $1 you charge on your card! The ScoreCard Rewards Program allows you to use your points toward airline and travel services, cash back, or quality merchandise.

ScoreCard® Rewards now offers Premium Payback, which allows you to redeem your points right at the point of sale, virtually anywhere. Just make a qualifying purchase at a participating location and you will promptly receive a text message or email asking if you want to redeem your points to cover your purchase. If you choose to accept the offer, you will receive a statement credit to your account for the transaction amount. Click here to learn more!

Enjoy added safety. Paying with your SeaComm Visa® gives you the advantage of purchase protection in case of fraud. You also have access to Free Travel Accident Insurance Coverage, emergency card replacement, and optional insurance for auto rental damages.

Finance large purchases. Shopping for large appliances or furniture can drain your budget. Using your credit card to finance these large purchases will enable you to pay them off over time! Your SeaComm Visa® also provides you with a 25-day interest free grace period, which allows you to avoid finance charges if you pay off your credit card bill at the end of the month!
