CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: 12/12 FOR 12

The holiday season is once again upon us and the Credit Union is already in the Christmas Spirit!  Let us help you increase your spending power!  From October 12, 2021 thru December 23, 2021, the Credit Union is offering a Christmas loan special:  $1,200.00 for 12 months @ 12%.  (All Loans Are Subject To Credit Approval & Credit Union Discretion.)

 

NEW VEHICLE LOANS: NO PAYMENTS FOR 60 DAYS

From October 12, 2021 thru December 23, 2021, the Credit Union is offering no payments for 60 days on all new vehicle loans.  To take advantage of this special holiday offer, members must set up payroll deduction or automatic payment.  (All Loans Are Subject To Credit Approval.)

 

GET PRE-QUALIFIED FOR A VEHICLE LOAN BEFORE YOU BUY

Do you want to walk onto a car dealership with confidence?  Do you want to not have to worry about financing or payment amounts?  Then why not let the Credit Union pre-qualify you for a vehicle loan?  Just come by the Credit Union and complete a loan application along with your income verification and within a short period of time we can let you know what amount you qualify for when buying a vehicle.  Once your decision is made, bring back the bill of sale to the Credit Union and we will take care of the paper work while you wait.  It’s that easy!

(All Pre-Qualifications Will Be Subject To Credit Approval.)

 

SKIP-A-PAY PROGRAM

If you have a vehicle loan with the Credit Union you can skip your loan payment during the holidays.  Qualified members may skip one vehicle payment per qualified loan.  Just complete a brief “Skip-A-Pay” application for each vehicle loan you wish to skip during this holiday season.  (Loans may be skipped for the months of November or December, not both.)  To qualify for this program, you must be a member in good standing and your loans must be current.  For each requested loan, there must be at least six months of satisfactory payment history.  A $40 loan processing fee is required per requested “Skip-A-Pay.” (Unsecured loans do not qualify for the “Skip-A-Pay” program).

 

CHRISTMAS CLUB CHECKS

If you have a Christmas Club account, the funds will be automatically deposited into your credit union savings account on Friday, November 5, 2021.  Please call or stop by the office to withdraw your money.  There will be a drawing for all members who have not made any withdrawals from this account all year.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The Credit Union would like to acknowledge the winners of the Big Game Giveaway.  Congratulations to Troy Taylor and Kyshon Lee on winning the prize packages.

THANKSGIVING/CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY SPECIAL

2020 was a rough and unusual year and 2021 is shaping up to be the same way. So, to end this year on a good note, the Credit Union would like to show our appreciation to our membership for the continuing dedication of supporting the Credit Union movement, as well as our community.  During the month of November and December any member who receives a loan during these months will automatically be entered into a drawing for a turkey or a gasoline gift card.  (Drawings will be held randomly throughout the months of November and December.)

                            

KID’S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

During the month of December, any child under the age of 12, who opens a new or makes a $25 deposit into his or her existing share account will receive a Christmas gift bag.
