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. Today and Thursday they will team up with community banks nationwide to pump $150,000 in free gas to raise awareness about how they fuel local economies, and also to encourage consumers to transfer their accounts from megabanks.

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.
