Thankful for Emergency Funds

November 25, 2016 | Mission Fed

The holiday season is a time to be thankful for friends, family and all that we have in our lives. Of course, the holidays also come with a lot of expenses, such as events to attend, gift purchases, hosting parties or traveling in November and December (especially when there is a tendency for gas and airfare to be more expensive over the holidays). Meanwhile, the holidays bring no reprieve from everyday expenses like your mortgage or rent.

Unexpected life expenses happen without regard for your vacation plans or the presents you want to give to your family and friends. Somehow, expenses seem to come up at the most inopportune time; right before the holidays, the dog needs an emergency trip to the vet, your car breaks down and has to be repaired or you get pulled over going on the same road you take to work every day.

Mission Fed can be there for you when unexpected expenses arrive, giving you another reason to be thankful this holiday season. When you need a little extra help, a Mission Fed Classic Credit Card or Platinum Credit Card can do the trick.

Whether you’ll be in San Diego for the holidays or wherever your adventures take you, getting a Credit Card with Mission Fed can provide you with emergency funds and some great benefits, too.

Mission Fed’s Credit Card options feature low rates and fantastic features.

  • Our Classic Credit Card features no annual fee and you can enroll for Mission Rewards.
  • Our Platinum Credit Card offers a 0% introductory APR for the first 12 months on purchases and balance transfers posted within the first 90 days of account opening. After that, rates are as low as just 9.90% and may vary based on creditworthiness. And you can enroll for Mission Rewards. See our website for full disclosure.

About our Mission Rewards benefits:

With Mission Rewards, you earn points on every qualifying purchase that you make. You can redeem your points for important holiday spending relief such as cash back, shopping, airline tickets, hotel stays or local sports and theatre tickets.

When you open a new Platinum Credit Card with Mission Fed and use it for at least $1,000 in purchases in the first 90 days (pretty easy to do around the holidays), you’ll receive 10,000 bonus Mission Rewards points. It’s one of the ways we can give a present back to you while you’re out holiday shopping!

More benefits of a Mission Fed Credit Card

  • Low or no annual fee.
  • All of our Credit Cards come with Mastercard® benefits, such as ID Theft Alerts™.
  • Make simple and safe payments from your mobile device with Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay.

Having a Mission Fed Credit Card can help alleviate the stress of holiday costs and allow you to feel good knowing that you have emergency cash if you need it. With that stress gone, you’re free to focus on the important things around the holidays—enjoying quality time with your loved ones. Now, that’s something we can all be thankful for.
