VISA® Credit Card Reviewsby MikiExcellent card!
I've had my HFS Visa for almost 15 years now and I am happy I applied all those years ago. With low rates that make payments manageable on a mediocre income and an understanding staff, it's incredible. My husband and I were able to keep a rock steady credit score during and after our home foreclosure in 2010 simply because we were able to make the affordable payments on this NO APR Visa. Thank you HFS for keeping us afloat just with this card and the wonderful supporting staff!
Hi! We’re glad that you love your HFS Rewards Visa® Credit Card! Our card was designed with our members in mind: a low variable rate, rewards program, no annual fee, and EMV chip technology.by DrpcCard is fine, but can't manage account online
The card works well enough, but we can't manage our account online anymore--set up autopay, check our balance, see our transactions. Hopefully we get this feature soon--or even better --mobile credit card management (we need an app for that)
Thank you very much for your feedback! With our new HFS Rewards Visa® Credit Card you now have 24/7 online access to your credit card information through HFS Online Banking. Once logged in to Online Banking, simply click on “Visa Credit Card” to direct you to HFS Credit Card Online Account Management. From there you may view your account balance, check available credit, view monthly statements and transactions, make payments and more! If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us at (808) 930-1400. Mahalo!by KloukayGood rates, but less product
Rates are good, customer service is good. You only get one card, even if the spouse/partners name is on the statement. No more scorecard reward points after July 2015
Thank you very much for your feedback. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience. In most cases we are able to provide two cards if there is a joint member who would also like to use the credit card on the same account. One of our Service Representatives will be contacting you to help.
In regards to the ScoreCard® Rewards Points, unfortunately these will be discontinued on June 30, 2015 and points must be redeemed by August 31, 2015. Please stay tuned to our member communications as we have exciting new benefits for your card to be announced in early September.by BobbyLove my low interest Visa card

For those who carry credit card debt, this may be a good choice, but when ads leave out important details and offer no simple way to learn, then I vote "poor".
