MBNA credit cards
MBNA started in the U.S. in 1982 as Maryland Bank, N.A. The company quickly grew to become a key provider of mass market credit cards in the U.S., creating innovative partnerships and rewards programs along the way. In 1997, MBNA expanded into Canada and became the country's single largest issuer of MasterCard credit cards. Since then, the company has been purchased by TD Canada Trust, giving TD a robust MasterCard portfolio to offer its customers.
MBNA is particularly well known for its strong affinity partnerships. It essentially co-brands with an organization or charitable cause and creates a card that members of that organization can use to earn unique rewards. Affinity programs are popular with universities, sports programs, charities, and many other organizations.
