First Commonwealth Bank, a subsidiary of First Commonwealth Financial, has introduced three MasterCard-branded credit cards, namely Rewards, Student and Secured.
The Rewards and Student cardholders will get 1% back as a statement credit at the end of each quarter, while the Secured card is designed for individuals who have not established credit or have a credit score that prohibits them from obtaining credit.
The new cards are equipped with EMV chip, which will encrypt information for increased data security for transactions at terminals or ATMs that are chip-enabled.
Additionally, customers can sign up for MasterCard's SecureCode that will provide an additional layer of online shopping security.
First Commonwealth Bank executive vice president, business integration group manager Norm Montgomery said: "We strive to help our customers — our families, friends and neighbours — build financial confidence, and we're excited to launch our credit card products because we're doing it in a way that will benefit our customers.
"Our Rewards and Student cards will allow cardholders the opportunity to receive credit for future purchases, while our Secured card can help build or improve credit. An added convenience is that our cards launched with Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay capability."
