Get the Most out of Your Covid-19 Holiday Shopping

Holiday shopping in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic is going to be much different than previous years, as most consumers will be making their purchases online and/or starting to shop earlier than usual to avoid crowds. The great news is that retailers are aggressively rolling back prices and starting promotions early to capture as much business as possible this year.

Keeping this in mind, we recommend that you pay extra attention to details as you make your purchases:

  • Shop from reputable sources
  • Use your credit card for purchases online, rather than your debit card
  • Choose the credit card that gives you the most benefit – the best rate or more points
  • Shop early, avoid crowds and wear your mask when shopping in-person

If you’re looking for a credit card to use, our Wheelhouse Platinum Visa® will get you our lowest interest rate, beginning as low as 9.49% APR*. We also offer a fantastic Platinum Rewards Credit Card, which currently earns 3x the points for most online and in-person retail, gas and grocery store purchases. On top of that, qualifying new Platinum Rewards Credit Cards are eligible for a 25,000-point opening bonus through the end of 2020.

We wish you a safe and joyous holiday season with great deals on your shopping.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rates are effective as of October 21, 2020 and are subject to change without notice. All loans are subject to credit approval. The APR will vary with the market based on the prime rate.
