BBVA Compass Commemorates University Of Alabama's 15th Football National Title With Bama-branded Check Card

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass is commemorating the University of Alabama's national football championship and giving Alabama fans a new way to display their Crimson Tide pride with a new Bama-branded Visa® check card.


Alabama's defeat of No. 1 Notre Dame in the Discover BCS National Championship made the Crimson Tide the first team to win a third national title and first back-to-back champion in BCS history. Last year, Alabama claimed its 14th national championship in a 21-0 shutout against LSU.

"We are thrilled to showcase Alabama's 15th national title and to allow our customers to proudly display their Crimson Tide pride whenever they use their Bama-branded check card," said Jon Mulkin, consumer segment director at BBVA Compass.

Adding to a suite of Bama-branded images through the bank's Bama ® Banking program, the design will feature the iconic crimson and white football helmet emblazoned with the number 15 for new and current checking account customers.

Customers receive one free personalized check card with every BBVA Compass consumer Build-to-Order Checking ® account and three free personalized check cards with Business Build-to-Order Checking ® accounts. All other checking account customers may obtain a personalized check card for a $10 fee.
