1 Variable Rate Information: APR=Annual Percentage Rate. Your APR may vary. Your rate is determined by adding a Margin (initially determined based on an evaluation of each member’s credit score, economic conditions and other risk factors) to the highest Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the current month, and the rate will then adjust monthly (on the first day of your billing cycle), according to monthly increases or decreases in the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate. The APR will not be more than 18.00%, regardless of the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate. The margin applicable to your account is subject to review every 6 months. After a period of 12 months from card issuance, we may increase or decrease the margin applicable to your account based upon changes in your credit history. We will notify you in accordance with applicable law before we apply any margin increase to your account. The margins will range from 4.90%-13.90% as described in paragraph 5 of your Lafayette Credit Union Platinum Mastercard Credit Card Terms and Conditions.

Easy. Private. Secure.

Use Apple Pay™, Google Pay™, or Samsung Pay™ with your compatible device to pay in stores without swiping your cards and in apps without entering payment and contact information.

With these payment methods, instead of using your actual credit and debit card numbers when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number alongside a transaction-specific dynamic security code is used to process your payment. So your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with payment.

To get started, simply download your respective app, and enter the requested information. You will then be prompted to call the phone number that appears to validate your card and complete the enrollment process. This process will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete, and you will be asked to verify your most recent transaction (so have that handy). After the merchant name and amount is provided, your card will be verified.
