USAA and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) are joining forces to offer a uniquely designed credit card and USAA’s investment solutions to more than 1.6 million VFW members.
The new co-branded credit card allows VFW members to apply for the Veterans of Foreign Wars USAA Rewards™ World MasterCard®, which will help support the organization's activities and programs. Additionally, USAA is now the VFW’s preferred provider of investment solutions for its membership.
According to Nathan McKinley, USAA vice president of military affinity, the relationship expands USAA’s efforts to serve those who served the nation during times of war, along with organizations committed to advancing veteran benefits and care.
“We’re proud to be working with the Veterans of Foreign Wars to help meet the financial needs of its members,” said McKinley. “We know VFW members and their families will be drawn to USAA because they want to do business with a financial services provider that understands their unique needs and appreciates their service.”
It is a sentiment echoed by Richard L. Eubank, national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
“We are extremely pleased to provide VFW members this opportunity to further support important VFW programs and our mandate of service to veterans, service members and their families,” said Eubank. “Our relationship with USAA is built upon trust.
