- This might be a no-brainer in this day and age, but make sure you visit
your credit union’s website regularly! This is where you are sure to find the
most up to date information on hours, events, specials, products, and services.
There isn’t enough room on your statement or on your mobile app to tell you
what’s going on. (get out your magnifying glass!) And there are things going on!
Your credit union is working hard on things to make you happy and successful,
take a minute and find out what’s up!
- In addition to the website, social media is a huge way to get the latest
info on specials, contests, giveaways, and overall fun gifts and promotions
going on at your credit union. Your Marketing person (that’s me!) loves
to give little things away and have fun telling you about our deals. Your credit
union often has ways to save money and you betcha our Facebook is updated
with that information. Most credit unions use Twitter and Instagram too, follow us and see!
- Consolidate your situation. If you’re like me, you have 27 different
things going on in 27 different places at all times. That old savings account
gathering dust in your home town bank since childhood, a 401k from a job
you’d rather forget, statements coming from all of these and an overwhelmed
feeling about all of it. Your credit union is designed to have the very best
options for every banking product you need. And there are big incentives
for consolidating them all in one place. Wouldn’t it be nice to make just ONE
phone call or visit ONE website for everything? It takes a little work at the
beginning but it’s worth it. I’ll let you know how much time I save when I
get this process finished for myself. Then you can find me napping with all of my spare time.
- Come and see us! We hire really knowledgable and geniunely nice people
who know what they’re doing and would love to help you make sure you are
getting the best things we have to offer. You might be hanging on to that
old savings account you got in high school when there is an awesome new option.
Your auto loan might have come from the dealership who just wanted
to sell you a car but didn’t have your long term financial health in mind. We DO!
We give our profits back to you in savings and we have fun doing it. The
coffee is on and you might even get a fun little gift while saving time and money.
- Make sure we have your current contact information. Also a no-brainer, but
you wouldn’t believe the mail that gets returned and the people who claim they
“had no idea that was going on!” Returned mail costs money which is less back
for you! We also share fun things and specials via email- I promise to only email you for important things a couple times a month. Each email is made by a real live person (me again!) so no annoying generic stuff here. Though there HAS been known to be an occasional typo, sorry.
But most importantly, if there is any fraud on your account we would really
like to be able to call you asap.
Let us do the hard work and you can get busy saving money and time. I see a nap in your future too…
