How to Apply for an Associated Bank Visa Platinum Credit Card

Like many platinum cards on the market, the Associated Bank Visa Platinum Credit Card has the benefits of a low APR without a gimmicky rewards program attached. The Platinum card has the best introductory rate out of all the personal credit options that Associated Bank has to offer. Users will receive a 0% APR on all purchases made within the first 12 billing cycles, meaning no interest will be charged on purchases made within the first year of card membership. The rate given to you after the introductory offer expires will be based on your creditworthiness and will land somewhere between 10.49% to 21.49% (subject to change). Applying online is easy and we have outlined the requisite steps below in our application guide. Scroll down to start the application process and you will be minutes away from becoming an Associated Bank Visa Platinum cardholder.
