The National Home Furnishings Association (NHFA) announced lower discount rates for their members on their private label credit card sales. Effective June 1, the basic rates for six- and twelve-month plans have been lowered 50 basis points by Citi Retail Services. This program enhancement will help retailers improve their bottom line while they offer attractive credit options to consumers. “This is one of the best credit programs available in the industry and it just got better,” says Doug Kays, NHFA president. “It’s just one of the ways NHFA helps retailers improve their business.” In addition to this new lower pricing, most NHFA members will continue to receive a quarterly rebate check based on their total private label credit volume with Citi Retail Services. NHFA members currently participating in the program will receive information directly from Citi Retail Services about the new reduced rates.
