Applications for the card, which features the Sharks logo and team colors, can be obtained at the Shark’s games, at any 121 branch or online. People receive a free Sharks/121 T-shirt just for applying for the card.
The Sharks card is a standard VISA credit card, which will have an introductory rate of 0% for six months for those who qualify.
“We wanted to support our home team, so as a credit union, we thought a natural way to promote the franchise would be through an exclusive Sharks’ credit card,” said Cindy Breslin, vice president of marketing for 121 Financial. “Hopefully fans will get their card and use it throughout the community. That way when they pull out the card with the Sharks’ logo, other people will see it and think about supporting arena football in Jacksonville.”
