First USA Inc. is issuing an affinity credit card for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, an expansion baseball team scheduled to begin Major League competition next year.
The no-fee product, introduced early to capitalize on local fan enthusiasm, has an introductory interest rate of 5.9% for five months, which jumps to a fixed 17.9%.
The card will be available in classic, gold, or platinum versions. New cardholders receive a free Devil Rays T-shirt.
Applications are available initially through a toll-free number. In the future, they will be available at the stadium, via direct mail, and on-line at the team's Web site.
