PenFed Defender Visa Signature Card

Our Nation’s Service Members give so much and we feel strongly about giving them something back. The PenFed Defender Visa Signature Card is our way of saying, thank you.

In honor and recognition of America’s defenders, past and present, Pentagon Federal Credit Union (PenFed) officially announced this Veterans Day, the launch and availability of its newest credit card, the PenFed Defender Visa Signature® Card.

“Our Nation’s Service Members give so much and we feel strongly about giving them something back. This Card is designed to do just that. In the spirit of PenFed’s core mission to provide the best financial products and services to our men and women in uniform, our Defender Visa Signature Card is our way of saying, thank you.” said Kevyn Myers, executive vice president and chief operating officer with PenFed.

In October 2012, PenFed launched the PenFed Defender American Express® Card; an original concept reward card in the card industry at that time. The new PenFed Defender Visa Signature® Card offers the same great benefits.

Myers further explained, “Both of these Cards offer the same great value and rewards. The only difference, really, comes down to personal preference. The choice is simply a matter of which brand our members best identify with.”

Recently recognized as one of the “Best Military Cards 2014” by CardHub, the PenFed Defender Visa Signature® Card is available to active duty military personnel, members of the National Guard, reservists, retired and honorably discharged veterans, and certain affinity groups that belong to the credit union’s Membership Charter. The Card features:

  • 1.5% cash back on every purchase
  • Unlimited cash back rewards are automatically credited to cardholder’s account every month
  • No fees: no annual fee, no foreign transaction fee, no balance transfer fee, no cash advance fee, no late fee, and no over credit limit fee
  • A low 8.99% APR* for purchases and cash advances
  • Chip enabled enhanced technology for added security

Cardholders will also enjoy Best-In-Class benefits such as Complimentary 24/7 Concierge Service, Warranty Manager, and Purchase Security.
