Washington, D.C. (August 13, 2013)—TCM Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of ICBA Bancard, today announced that it organized and sponsored a summer credit card promotion for its agent bank clients from May through July.

TCM supplied 48 backpacks filled with school supplies along with balloons, Frisbees and T-shirts to each winner. Some of the winning banks held their community day event in conjunction with local youth organizations.
“We are so pleased to be winners of the TCM Bank Summer Visa® campaign. As our area’s hometown community bank, we continually strive to give our customers the personal service they deserve and help them reach their financial goals with the best products possible,” said S.
