Show your Members Some Love on Valentine’s Day
February 11, 2019
With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s a great time for credit unions to remind new and existing members of all the sweet deals that come with membership. Perks like free checking, financial education courses, and access to a network of surcharge-free ATMs are sweeter than candy, and they’re available for no cost at most credit unions.
In the Northwest, credit unions offer members impressive loan rates that will satisfy their savings sweet tooth. Credit card rates in Idaho are more than 2.5 percent lower; in Oregon, nearly 3 percent lower; and in Washington, just over 3 percent lower*.
For car shoppers hoping to take a romantic sunset drive in a new car sometime soon, there’s good news. Northwest credit union members save big on auto loan financing. For example, members who financed a $25,000 vehicle through a credit union for 60 months paid $116 less in interest per year in Oregon, and $91 less in Washington.*.
These perks and savings aren’t just candy-coated promises. They exist because of credit unions’ not-for-profit structure. Credit unions are owned by their members, and they do not pay Wall Street stockholders. Instead, they return profits to their members in the form of favorable loan rates, better returns on savings accounts, and lower fees.
Credit unions love their members and Valentine’s Day is a great time to spread the word with the lower fees, great rates, and perks waiting for new and existing members at your credit union.
