Excellent experience

I've had the card for over three years now, and it works great as expected. I've used it in over 20 countries (North America, Europe and Post Soviet) and I have never had any issues. Moreover, I use it for Google Pay to tap with my phone and watch, and it always works flawlessly!

Works first time every timr

I've been a UNFCU Visa Elite card holder for just over 5 years now, having travelled to over 25 countries, mostly small Pacific Island nations, and this card has not let me down. True chip and pin, and only swipe if a chip reader is not available. Every year I let the credit union know where I'll be visiting to avoid any issues.

Ridiculous

I actually spoke with a customer service representative named Lisa who advised me that since I live in Maryland and travel to Washington on a daily basis 12 miles away I need to call Lynn to customer service to let them know I am traveling to a different location to avoid having the card refused. Absolutely amazing! I then inquired if I go 12 miles in the other direction which would be Virginia do I also need to call to let them know I am traveling to Virginia her response was yes it would be a good idea. Obviously this is not a card you want to use if you commute more than 12 miles away from your residence into a different state or vicinity either that or their customer service staff is terribly misinformed. What makes it worse, they advertise this card as their premier card!
