MOVE YOUR MONEY Credit unions are financial institutions that offer the same products and services as traditional banks, but they are not-for-profit. The only purpose of credit unions is to serve the community; each credit union member loans money to the other members. Credit unions tend to be smaller, offer more personalized service, and offer better rates on loans. Moving your checking and savings account to a credit union could potentially save you thousands of dollars over your lifetime. Tip: Credit unions are part of the co-op system that allows members to take out money at more than 28,000 ATMs nationwide, making it the largest ATM system in the US, including 7-11 ATMs. Visit America’s Credit Unions to find a credit union in your area.
