MasterCard Platinum Credit Card


The Only Credit Card You'll Ever Need.

Members like you are our most valuable asset and we look forward to providing the level of personal service that few financial institutions can provide and a credit card that will be the only card you will ever need.


MasterCard Platinum Credit Card Features.

  • FREE Balance Transfers. Most card issuers charge a balance transfer fee. Either a fixed dollar amount, a percentage of the transaction, or whichever is greater of the two amounts. Balance transfers to Buffalo Metropolitan’s MasterCard Platinum credit card are always FREE. Moving your higher interest credit card balances over is easy. Simply use a credit card check to easily transfer a balance to your MasterCard Platinum. A credit card check is available at the bottom of every credit card statement. Or provide us with a current credit card statement of that card and we'll do the rest.
  • Same Rate for Cash Advances. For many this is a who knew moment. With your Buffalo Metropolitan MasterCard Platinum you can get cash when you need it with the same low rate as purchases.
  • Who Needs Fees. That's right, no cash advance fee AND no annual fee. The profits we make come back to you to keep your fees and rates lower. Click here for MasterCard Platinum credit card rates.
  • Protected. Our Platinum credit cards are monitored by MasterCard which means they oversee transactions so if anything appears out of the norm of your spending habits, they will call and confirm that it was really you making the purchase.
