The Democratic National Committee is launching its own affinity credit card this month with the help of Providian Financial. The new “Democratic Party Platinum VISA” card gives individuals the option of designating their earned rebates as donations to the DNC, or they can earn accelerated rewards for making a donation to the Committee. Cardholders will also be able to choose from a number of patriotic card designs, including: an American flag with a superimposed DNC logo, the Democratic Party donkey mascot, and an image of the U.S. Constitution. Pricing and rebate details were not publicly disclosed. For more information visit: http://www.democrats.org.
