On Valentine's Day, Remember the Sweet Deals at Idaho Credit Unions (Photo) - 02/13/19

Chocolate offers instant gratification, but lower fees, great rates, and member perks last longer.

 

BOISE (Feb. 12, 2019) – With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s a great time to remember all the sweet deals from your credit union. Members enjoy a variety of money-saving perks that are better than a box of chocolates, whether you’re treating yourself or someone special on the big day.

If your idea of a romantic dinner out is more steak-and-lobster than burger-and-fries, try a free financial education course, such as budgeting, to align your finances.  Don’t you swoon for savings accounts that earn interest for you? Idaho credit unions offered higher rates on checking accounts, money market accounts, certificates, and Individual Retirements Accounts than other financial institutions paid, earning their members a collective $27 million more in interest last year. Do you long for a long-term financial relationship with a low-interest credit card? You could be enjoying a credit card rate 2.63 percent lower than those offered at other financial institutions. *

All of these benefits are available for the nearly one million Idaho credit union members and joining a credit union is easier than you think.

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 so 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.

Idaho credit unions love their members and Valentine’s Day is a great time to remember all the sweet deals waiting for you at your credit union. Want to join a credit union? Find one that best suits your needs at www.asmarterchoice.org.

 * Idaho Benefits of Membership analysis, a Credit Union National Association study based on Datatrac, NCUA, and CUNA comparison of bank and credit union rates, for 12 months ending in Sept 2018.
