IUSA TodayI IN.Y. PostI note CUs service
MADISON, Wis. (8/3/10)--The benefits of membership at credit unions were noted in articles Sunday in the New York Post and Monday in USA Today. Credit unions are “a quiet success story [that] remains largely unsung,” except for credit union members who “think they have the answer to what ails us,” the Post said in an article titled “Giving credit where credit (union) is due.” “I would rather do whatever it takes to finance through [credit unions] than go anywhere else,” Maureen Robinson, told the newspaper. Robinson’s mortgage application was initially rejected by Bethpage (N.Y.) FCU. But she then got her finances in order, reapplied and now is “comfortably paying off her first home loan,” the paper said. The Post also mentioned ads created by Connex CU, North Haven, Conn.; America’s First FCU, Birmingham, Ala.; and Boeing Employees CU, Tukwila, Wash., that are creatively showing how credit unions favorably compare with banks. A USA Today “Money” column briefly mentioned that credit unions are the best place for consumers trying to consolidate their debts. To read the articles, use the links.
