MBNA Corp., which has provided a variety of AOPA financial products and services to AOPA members for more than 20 years, officially became part of Bank of America on January 1. But for most AOPA members, the changeover will be transparent.
"AOPA credit card holders will keep the same account number and can continue to use the same credit card," said Karen Gebhart, AOPA executive vice president of non-dues revenue. "Sometime later this year, Bank of America will start to issue new credit cards to show the name change."
With the purchase of MBNA Corp., Bank of America becomes the largest issuer of Visa and MasterCard credit, debit, and prepaid cards and the nation's largest consumer bank.
"Bank of America is committed to the AOPA program. Members can look forward to a vast array of the finest financial and investment products available," said Gebhart. "And as is the case with all AOPA Member Products, use of the credit card and other financial services helps fund AOPA's programs to defend and advance general aviation."

AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
