“First Interstate Bank has been a trusted partner for our organization for many years. The First Interstate World Mastercard is no exception and has been a great choice for our companies in managing multiple companies/cards. The card has an in-state service center which is unheard of today. I have been in Medical Management for over 20 years and the First Interstate World Mastercard’s team and customer service is by far the best I have ever experienced. I have and will continue to highly recommend First Interstate Bank and their World Mastercard.”

“I love the First Interstate Bank World Mastercard for Business because it gives us operating cash. I can pay all of my bills at one time, file them away and not worry about waiting until accounts receivable are in every month. I have a cushion to receive the cash and pay off the card balance. It makes accounts payable much easier and accounts receivable less stressful. It also earns rewards that I use as Christmas gifts to the employees.”
