CUs, Banks Take Over Gas Pumps To Urge Local Banking
AUSTIN, Texas (8/28/13)--Credit unions are always on the alert for ways to help their communities.

In partnership with Kasasa.com, a resource for free checking accounts with rewards at credit unions and community banks, the community financial institutions will showcase the benefits they offer consumers, including free reward-checking, superior member/customer service and nationwide ATM fee refunds with no minimum balance requirements to earn rewards or maintain accounts.
