TAMPA, FL (February 6, 2024) — Locally owned and operated credit union GTE Financial launches the Bolts Debit Card for new and existing members as the official credit union of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The financial institution currently offers the Bolts Debit Card for free when a new member opens a GTE checking account and use the promo code BOLTSCARD. The offer ends on April 30, 2024 and is the only debit card featuring the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“We are thrilled to kick off 2024 with our Bolts Debit Card! This co-branded Debit Card is a testament to our 89-year legacy in Tampa Bay and our commitment to community spirit. This unique design, sanctioned by the NHL and Vinik Sports Group, is the only Debit Card featuring our beloved Tampa Bay Lightning home team,” said Jennifer Maxfield, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing and Impact Officer. “We couldn’t be more excited to offer the debit card and showcase it to our members and the millions of Lightning fans in the Tampa Bay community.”
