Whether you’d like to consolidate existing debts, save with interest-free days or enjoy a competitive annual fee, the People’s Choice Credit Union Visa Credit Card might be the right choice for you.
People’s Choice Credit Union currently has just one credit card: The Visa Credit Card. The Visa Credit Card is a low-rate option that you can use to make cheap purchases and get cash advances.
People's Choice is a credit union. When you become a member of a credit union you must pay a small one-off membership fee and this gives you the right but not the obligation to vote on how the financial institution is run. A credit union is accountable to its members, not shareholders.
