Dear Valued Members,
You may have heard the news that First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) announced they are discontinuing their relationship with the NRA’s VISA Card program. Because AMAC supports the NRA and the AMAC MasterCard program is managed by the FNBO, we strongly protested the Bank’s action. Our executive team met with FNBO’s executives to discuss the impact of the bank’s decision for AMAC’s members.
AMAC is currently under contract with FNBO to provide the MasterCard service and the bank has indicated our relationship will continue. When we searched for a bank to give our members the best deal on credit cards, we determined FNBO was an excellent option, especially since they had a relationship with the NRA. Interestingly, several large national banks turned us down using various excuses for not wanting to do business with AMAC. We suspect these national banks reviewed our website and discovered our conservative stance on issues that might not reflect their viewpoint. But AMAC chose FNBO because of their arrangement with the NRA.
Be assured, we will continue to press FNBO to reverse their decision on the NRA affiliation because we believe this is a serious error. If we are able to secure a replacement bank that offers better terms then the present FNBO, we will not hesitate to change. AMAC promises to continue to support conservative organizations, especially the NRA.
Dan Weber, President
