Stanford Alumni & Athletics® Fan Rewards Visa® Credit Card FAQs

Do I need to be a member of the credit union to get a Rewards Credit Card?

Yes, you must become a member before you can use any products or services. When you apply for your credit card, you can become a member at the same time by opening a checking or savings account with a minimum deposit of $5.00. Stanford FCU will put the $5.00 requirement into the savings account on your behalf. It represents your ownership share, allowing you to fully participate and vote at our annual membership meeting. Membership eligibility is required, and you must have a U.S. address.

Who can get the Stanford Alumni or Athletics® Fan Rewards Visa® Credit Card?

The Stanford Athletics® Fan Rewards Card is available to all Stanford fans! The Stanford Alumni Rewards Visa Credit Card is only available to Stanford alumni, although sports fan alumni may prefer the Stanford Athletics Fan Card—both cards support the Stanford Alumni Association and have the same features and benefits.

What is the bonus point value?
