Visa® Credit Cards


You have a choice when it comes to finding the right credit card.

Our Visa® Platinum credit card has a credit limit up to $30,000, no annual fee, and one rate for purchases, cash advances, and balance transfers. Most credit cards companies charge a percentage when transferring balances to their card, as much as 1-4% of the total amount transferred. At HVFCU you can perform unlimited balance transfers, fee-free, which could translate into hundreds of dollars in savings.
