Earn Additional Benefits with HVFCU Rewards!

HVFCU Rewards! gives you even more ways to spend the points you earn on your Visa Debit Card and Visa Platinum Rewards credit card purchases. You can redeem your points for merchandise and travel rewards, as well as gift cards, cash back credits, green products, and even charitable donations.

  • Visa Debit Cards – You’ll earn one point for every $3 spent on signature-based / credit transactions (transactions when you do not enter your PIN).
  • Visa Platinum Rewards Credit Cards – You’ll earn one point for every $1 spent on signature-based / credit transactions

Note: Some merchants do not have you sign for purchases under a specific dollar value, for example, under $50 or $25. In these instances you still earn points even if you don’t physically sign. As long as you don’t enter a PIN, you earn points.

To enroll in HVFCU Rewards!, please complete our enrollment form, which you can access via the “HVFCU Rewards! Enrollment” option on our secure email page.

Point Balances & Point Expiration

Any points you earned in our old ScoreCard program carried over to our HVFCU Rewards! program. Any points earned in the ScoreCard program through 8/31/13 keep their original expiration date, up to six years. Any points earned in the HVFCU Rewards! program expire after three years.

Point Redemption
