I am sure that they (NRA) will have not trouble finding a new banking partner if they wish.

Re: FNBO dumps the NRA.

I'm curious what does that mean for current card holders? Will the card be considered grandfathered in or will current cardholder just get cancelled overall? I don't have a card my self. I was wondering a little while ago what current events might do to the NRA Visa card.

I don't think any major bank would accept them anytime soon as a partner because of the toxic environment. That said, perhaps they'll partner with a small regional bank.

They could always make their own bank/credit union, it would be an interesting concept.

"The First National Bank of Omaha said Thursday it will not renew a contract with the National Rifle Association to issue its NRA-branded Visa credit card."

 

I wonder when the contract is up though?

NRA Card Discontinued

FNBO announced they won't renew their contract with the NRA and it appears new apps are no longer taken.

Any speculation as to what will happen to current cardmembers?

Obviously we can't discuss politics here; it's a shame that politics plays a factor in such things.
