Rewards:
This is a rewards card that offers unique rewards. Due to this card's diversity, the rewards are not categorized specifically in Finance Globe's rewards sections.

Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, applicants should have a great credit record. A FICO credit score of 739 is recommended for a higher chance of approval, but this is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval. While your FICO score is usually a very important factor, you may want to consider other areas that may affect a decision for approval. For example, your debt to income ratio, recent credit inquiries, 30+ day delinquencies, or current credit accounts nearing the maximum amount may affect a credit decision.

FICO scores/credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, a credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any Harvard University Employees Credit Union product.

Other Basics:
The grace period listed for the Harvard Alumni World MasterCard® is at least 25 days*. So interest charges will not be applied for new purchases during this time if balance is paid in full by the due date. Be aware that some issuers will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

This card contains the brand of Mastercard, where acceptance is global. Most businesses that accept credit cards will accept Mastercard as a form of payment (subject to available credit).
