UChoose Rewards Debit Card
At OMEGA FCU, we want you to benefit in every way possible from our wide assortment of products and services. Our UChoose Rewards cards are the first that allow users to combine points from their Debit and VISA cards as well as many other products and services.
Plus, all cards can be linked to earn points together! So if you have multiple OMEGA FCU UChoose Rewards debit card and VISA credit card accounts in your household, you can combine reward point earnings for higher redemption values! This means that at OMEGA FCU you simply earn more rewards faster than anywhere else!
Additionally, you can protect yourself from fraud and overspending by downloading the Card Valet Mobile App. The Card Valet App lets you control debit card usage and spending on the go! For more information on Card Valet, Click Here.
