With the combination of Christmas and New Year’s quickly approaching, many of our members will max out their credit cards in December and be looking for a fresh financial start in the New Year. Unfortunately, that is hard to do when the January credit card bills start coming in. Put your finances in order and save money by getting a consolidation loan with the credit union. Consolidation loan interest rates can be as low as 6.25% versus 19 to 28% for most credit cards. Our low interest rates allow you to pay off a high interest debt faster and at a far lower interest cost which means more money in your pocket.
Small Change on our ATMs. Members at Eastern Avenue may notice a small change in the displays on our ATM. Our ATM recently received a software upgrade. The screen for withdrawals gives sev- eral choices for the amount to take out. In the old system if you wanted a different amount from what was shown, you pressed the Other button and keyed in what you wanted. In the new screens, you simply key in the amount you want without the extra step. The same changes are coming to the Gateway ATM in December.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CANADA POST EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE LOANS WITH USIf your loan is set up to be paid by payroll deduction every two weeks, make sure your three pay- ments were made in December. Canada Post only forwards the two payments to us for their “freepay” program but the loans are due every two weeks.
