World Mastercard® Credit Card

The Alternative to Big Bank Card Fees
The ELCA Federal Credit Union World Mastercard puts the “credit” in credit union. Enjoy worldwide acceptance along with travel, lifestyle and insurance benefits that provide you with exclusive access and peace of mind.
  • Interest rates start as low as 8.99% APR
  • One very low rate good for purchases, balance transfers or cash advances
  • No transaction fees for balance transfers or cash advances
  • No annual fee
  • Compatible with digital wallets on the major mobile payment platforms: Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay
Your ELCA Federal Credit Union World Mastercard is linked to your other credit union accounts through our ItsMe247 online banking and mobile app, so you can transfer funds in and out of your World Mastercard account in real time, plus view transactions and check your balance anytime. As for security, you're in control: the card's lock/unlock feature lets you limit the opportunity for others to initiate fraudulent or unauthorized activity.
A Financial Resource for Ministries too
Our Ministry Credit Card Program offers a cost-effective alternative to standard corporate credit card programs, with flexible agreement options tailored to meet a ministry's unique needs, including our share/deposit-secured program. As with individual cardholders, ministries can reap all the benefits of the ELCA Federal Credit Union World Mastercard, including Travel, Shopping and Insurance Protection.
