Star Trek Credit Cards to Launch in September
We may be seeing the Final Frontier of Finance.
The NASA Federal Credit Union announced they will offer four different Star Trek-themed credit cards next month.
The four new Star Trek Platinum Advantage Rewards credit cards, offered in conjunction with CBS Consumer Products, will include the Starfleet Academy Alumni, Starfleet Command, United Federation of Planets and the Captain’s Card. They will all be part of the Visa network.
The cards have an attractive ongoing APR of 9.9% to 17.99%, depending on your credit worthiness. The NASA Federal Credit Union is offering consumers a 7.9% APR on balance transfers with no balance transfer fee during the first 90 days of an account opening.
But each card has an annual fee of $39.
Trekkies can earn Star Trek merchandise and unique experiences from the rewards offered. Consumers receive one point for every dollar spent, with three points for buying merchandise on StarTrek.com and two points for gas station purchases. The first 1,000 cardholders can receive 10,000 bonus points once they spend $500 during the first 90 days of opening an account.
“We’re excited to offer these new cards to Star Trek enthusiasts to express their support every time they use the card,” Douglas Allman, NASA Federal Credit Union president and CEO, said in a statement. “We hope fans will take advantage of this exciting new benefit while also remembering that, as NASA Federal members, they can take advantage of a full array of financial services designed to save them time and money.”
