Celero is pleased to announce that Vision Credit Union in Alberta has selected Aura’s reloadable Mastercard® and digital platform to make it easy for their 26,000 members to manage their money and receive instant cash-back rewards.
Credit unions like Vision are choosing Aura because it’s a globally accepted platform and card, enabling their members to transact anywhere in the world and online, while enjoying discounts and rewards from local businesses and large retailers.
“Our employees are quite excited to offer Aura to our members as a wonderful replacement for the Global Payment card. We are anticipating attracting new members of all demographics to our credit union as they are interested in the intuitive digital platform that Aura provides,” says Pauline Marcinkowski, VP of Banking Operations, Vision Credit Union.
Marcinkowski says that a key reason they chose Aura is that it’s more secure than credit cards for online shopping as the pre-paid platform means that fraudsters can’t access funds beyond the balance on the card. The ability to freeze both the plastic and virtual cards also provides enhanced security for members.
Delivering a rewarding payment experience for members
Aura enables credit union members to improve their financial wellness and earn instant rewards. According to Kristen Wilson, Director of Client Solutions and Business Development at Celero, Aura has been designed in collaboration with Canadian credit unions to meet the needs of members and grow communities. Aura was created to assist credit unions in giving back to their members while contributing to local economic and social initiatives.
“Aura is much more than a prepaid card – it enables credit unions to create a rich and fulfilling digital experience for their members as they manage their money, make purchases and enjoy discounts and perks from their favourite stores and retailers. That’s what sets it apart from other offerings on the market – it delivers the rewarding, self-serve experience that today’s consumer requires,” says Wilson.
