Stocks in this article: BBVA

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass today announced the launch of the BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card, a new financial product offering customers the rewards and security of a credit card with the greater spending control of a charge card.

The BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card allows customers to participate in the CompassPoints rewards program at no charge and carries no interest expense with on time payments. The new card requires a full payment of the monthly balance, helping customers avoid overspending and interest charges.

"The BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card is a great product for credit qualified customers or frequent debit card users who want to exert control over their finances, but also enjoy the perks of a credit card," said Jon Mulkin, Consumer Segment Director for BBVA Compass.

"The BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card makes tracking spending easy with account alerts," Mulkin said.

"And because the card is part of the Visa® network, customers also enjoy unparalleled safety and security," he said.

Additional features of the new BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card include the CompassPoints rewards program, with one point earned for every $1 spent, plus bonus points for purchases at designated retailers, as well as an auto pay option for further financial control.

For more information on the BBVA Compass Visa® Charge Card, customers may go to www.bbvacompass.com, contact 1-800-Compass or visit their local BBVA Compass branch.
