KCBS Credit Card Design Winners

January 20, 2011
The Kansas City Barbeque Society is giving members a new way to tout their barbeque pride.

Through a partnership with Visa and UMB Bank, the KCBS will launch its new credit card in 2011.

KCBS and UMB Bank will offer members five different designs to choose from, two of which were designed by MMA Creative, the official agency of the KCBS. The remaining three credit cards were chosen from designs submitted by KCBS members.

Congratulations to the three design winners:

Ken Grubby
Benjamin Krueger
Jessica Wendel

Their original artwork, along with two KCBS-designed credit cards, will be featured in the wallets of BBQers everywhere!

Stay posted on how to obtain these BBQ-friendly KCBS credit cards!
