ANCHORAGE, Alaska - December 21, 2009 - Credit Union 1 was recently named as one of the most fair and ethical credit card providers in the U.S. by CreditCardConnection.org. According to founder and financial consultant Ondine Irving, her website's goal is to provide "...an objective and independent analysis on the financial, operational and marketing aspects of credit card portfolio performance...Credit Card Connection [connects] consumers directly to the most fair and ethical credit card programs in the country - the type of cards all consumers deserve to have."
To receive the highest Dean's List honors on Irving's website, a credit card must have no annual fee, no penalty rate, no balance transfer fee, rates 18% and under, and late fees $25 and under. Credit Union 1 qualified for the Dean's List in all five of these categories.
