Global Gold Payment Mastercard with Choice Rewards

Discover Global Gold

Discover Global Gold

A unique card available only to members of participating credit unions.

The GLOBAL PAYMENT MasterCard card offers you the convenience, flexibility and worldwide global acceptance of a traditional MasterCard credit card. GLOBAL PAYMENT MasterCard can be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted including shopping online and accessing cash at an ATM. But, unlike the traditional MasterCard credit card, the funds are automatically moved from your credit union account to pay off the balance after the transaction is completed. GLOBAL PAYMENT MasterCard is a convenient extension of your account and is only available through your credit union.

Plus, you'll be enrolled in CHOICE REWARDS, the program that lets you collect points whenever you use your MasterCard Credit Card, and redeem them for free merchandise, cash rewards, and any kind of travel - not just air travel!
