All fun. No fees. Meet your Aura™ Loyalty card.  


Many of you are loyal credit union members. Perhaps you don’t have, or simply don’t want, a credit card. Or have a credit card, but don’t like to carry a balance or have debt. Maybe online shopping or pre-ordering groceries wasn’t really necessary or of interest to you. Even reserving hotel rooms or ordering online take-out (although possible without a credit card) became an inconvenient chore, but you made do with debit and cash.


But, with the implementation of social distancing practices, restaurant closures, pre-ordering from the grocery store, and cashless payments at many establishments, navigating our current world without a credit card has been even more difficult. That is, until today.

That’s where an Aura​​ ​Loyalty card comes in. Aura is a fee-free, reloadable Mastercard® with a built-in financial wellness app, exclusively for members of Encompass Credit Union. It has instant offers, rewards of your choice, and can be used wherever Mastercard is accepted. It’s also a way to have a card that allows you to use it like a Mastercard®, but without having to actually have a credit card. You load it with your money, all without debt, and this card is available exclusively for you as a member.  

There are many things you can do with an Aura Loyalty card. Let’s learn more.

Track your savings and set goals

Set savings goals directly in the Aura Loyalty app and achieve them, with round up savings tools to the nearest $1, $2, $5, or $10. You can even track how you’re saving on a weekly or monthly basis and categorize your spending habits. This will help you see where your money goes, so you can pinpoint how to save smarter in the future.

Use it with your smartphone

For convenience and ease, your card can also live within your smartphone digital wallet allowing you to tap-to-pay on your phone using Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, or FitBit Pay.

Tap to pay. Load money easily.

If you’re out and about, a simple tap to pay is all you need to complete purchases and reloading the card is extremely easy with the help of Interac e-Transfer®.

Spend with peace of mind

With the ability to freeze your card if you lose it, zero liability protection, and transaction notifications, online shopping is safe and secure with an Aura card. You can shop online knowing that you control how much is loaded on the card, and there’s no risk of potentially thousands of dollars on a traditional credit card.
