• Berklee Names Betsy Newman VP of Student Affairs/Dean of Students
Elizabeth Newman, vice president of lending at the credit union, attributed the growth to the enthusiasm members expressed when CU of Texas started issuing cards again.
The cooperative had a card program for 20 years before it sold the portfolio in 2007 or 2008 due to stagnancy, she wrote in an email to CU Times. "We considered redesigning our card offerings or selling the portfolio. We elected to sell and work with our partner and their in-house experts on a program redesign," Newman wrote. CU of Texas sold the portfolio to Bank of America's FIA Card Services, which was formerly known as MBNA, according to Newman. The card-issuing bank merged with Bank of America in 2006 and was later renamed FIA Card Services. Newman said members had not necessarily expressed an opinion about the sale and subsequent agent issuing but they were unhappy that CU of Texas no longer handled the reimbursement of fees, underwriting of credit line increases and new card accounts. The credit union had also carefully reviewed the regulatory changes that were in place since it last issued its cards and decided to return to the market with a much simpler and streamlined approach, she added.

Now, it has two Platinum MasterCards. One has a slightly higher interest rate and carries rewards and the other has a lower rate but minus the rewards program. The simplicity, lower interest and fee structures have made the cards successful, she noted. Because of a non-compete agreement with Bank of America, Newman said CU of Texas has not marketed the new card to any of it is former cardholders. Still, members have shared many positive comments about the credit union's re-entry into cards, she pointed out. Newman said she did not know how many of CU of Texas' former cardholders had taken the credit union's new card.
