*(Riverside, Calif.) June 29, 2017 *– Altura Credit Union has launched its own branded rewards credit card, the Uphora card, pronounced “euphora.” To make managing the Uphora and other Altura credit and debit cards easier, Altura also introduced MobiMoney, a free mobile app that enables customizing card usage.
Altura members can earn rewards points for purchases made with the Uphora Mastercard. Those points can be redeemed online or in stores for merchandise, gift cards or travel.
“With the Uphora Mastercard, people don’t have to save up their reward points for big ticket items, although they still can. But instead can use the points to purchase everyday things quickly and easily using your Uphora card,” said Robert Whitton, Altura chief operating officer. “As a MasterCard Rewards card, Uphora offers one of the most flexible rewards programs available today. Mastercard Pay with Rewards lets Altura cardholders use their points for whatever they want at millions of eligible locations around the world,” he added.
The MobiMoney mobile app gives credit and debit card users more control over their card usage. Once a credit card is linked to the app, Altura members can receive instant alerts based on personal preferences, store receipts on the phone, and organize receipts into personal or business options.
MobiMoney also helps protect against fraudulent transactions by allowing the cardholder to restrict purchases by location, merchant, transaction type and amount of purchase. Plus if the credit or debit card is lost or stolen, a cardholder can use the app to disable the card.
