FCA launches credit card for fleets, repair shops

Small businesses operating fleets and repair facilities may now apply for either of two FCA U.S. MasterCard credit cards at participating FCA U.S. dealerships or online at www.fcamastercard.com.

“We’re introducing a new credit card program with our small-business customers in mind as a way to say thank you for their loyalty,” says Jeffrey Kommor, vice-president, U.S. sales operations, fleet and small business sales, FCA U.S. “Whether you have an independent repair facility or a vehicle fleet for your small business, this new program will provide a positive boost to your operations.”

FCA is offering two business credit cards: the Mopar Business Edition MasterCard program, which provides pricing benefits to independent repair facilities; and the BusinessLink Business Edition MasterCard program, which offers points and rewards for small businesses with vehicle fleets

Both card products have no annual fee; low introductory rate for the first six billing cycles; 10,000 bonus points after the first $100 in purchases at FCA US dealers in the first three billing cycles; 4 percent back on all FCA US dealership purchases, including new or used vehicles, service contracts, and parts and accessories; and 1 percent back on all other purchases. Percentage back is based on points earned, which can be redeemed on a future in-dealer purchase. Points expire on or after the third anniversary of when they were awarded.

“The successful results of the consumer card helped us build this small-business program for retailers and vendors loyal to FCA products,” says Stephen F. Eulie, First Bankcard President. “Our partnership is built upon our ability to help FCA increase loyalty and value to its customers, whether they are small businesses or consumers. We are proud to expand this card program to help our partner build brand loyalty and sales while benefitting its customers.”

Dealerships will invite customers to apply for the card while they are in the dealership. The FCA U.S. MasterCard has no annual fee and offers FCA U.S. small-business customers a competitive annual percentage rate.
