Red Bulls, Affinity FCU grow partnership

The New York Red Bulls have extended their partnership with Affinity Federal Credit Union, the Basking Ridge-based financial institution announced recently, paving the way for a co-branded credit card coming in December.

Affinity, already the “official credit union” of the Harrison-based soccer team, will start offering a “RBNY Rewards” Visa before year-end, it said in a news release.

“On behalf of the Affinity family, we are very excited to start this next phase in our partnership with the Red Bulls, which has always provided a wonderful opportunity to engage with our ‘Community Connected,’” Jacqui Kearns, chief brand officer, said in a prepared statement. “We now have the chance to offer our financial services in a new way that benefits the people in our communities even further.”

The card offers special team-themed rewards and offers points on Red Bull Arena and other Red Bulls-related purchases.
