Strategic Link Question of the Week

Our credit union is looking to bring in more non-interest income in 2013. Does Strategic Link have any partners that can help us accomplish that goal?

Yes, lots of credit unions are looking for additional ways to bring in non-interest income in the New Year. Our partnership with CU Solutions Group and the Invest in America program–linking exclusive discounts to credit union core services–is one great way to do that.

For example, the Sprint Credit Union Member Discount Program, available through Invest in America, gives credit unions an easy path to non-interest income. By simply promoting Sprint services to your members using provided marketing materials, you can earn program perks for your members (such as service plan discounts and waived activation fees), and you can join more than 1,700 credit unions—including several in Oregon and Washington—currently adding non-interest income to their bottom line by receiving a year-end marketing incentive check.

Strategic Link is the NWCUA’s wholly-owned service corporation, providing the Association’s member credit unions with exclusive high-quality, competitively-priced products and discounted services. To learn more about how the Sprint Credit Union Member Discount Program, contact Director of Strategic Partnerships Craig Reed: 206.340.4789,
