With trust in big banks declining, more people are turning to credit unions as their financial institution of choice. And this means more people are learning how credit unions allow you to save more money. Here are the big benefits making a difference: No Minimum Balances Many banks have checking accounts that require a minimum balance, especially if it’s a rewards checking account.

Can You Afford Your Checking Account?

Free checking does exist. Free REWARDS Checking even exists. Yet so many people are paying to keep a checking account open.

Most people also don’t know about free services such as ClickSWITCH that make switching your payments and direct deposit simple. The big banks aren’t looking out for their customers best interest.

Savings Certificates: How To Keep Your Money Spinning

July 20th 2016 by

What is a share savings certificate? A share savings certificate is much like the familiar certificate of deposit (CD) offered by banks. It acts like a traditional savings account in that you deposit money to collect dividends over time. It differs from a traditional savings account, though, because you cannot withdraw or deposit money at will. Instead, you agree to place your money on deposit for a preset period of time, called the “term length,” during which you may not make withdrawals without a penalty.
