Invest in America adds FDT florists CU Benefits
LIVONIA, Mich. (11/16/09)--Credit unions' incentive program with auto dealers, Invest in America, has added two more alliances providing discounts to members: FTD Florists for flowers and gift packages, and CU Benefits Express for medical and lifestyle benefits packages. Credit union members will get a 20% discount on FTD flowers and gift packages with a seven-day satisfaction guarantee. The program will run through Oct. 31, 2010. CU Benefits Express--through a partnership with Credit Union Resources, an affiliate of the Texas Credit Union League--offers credit union members discounts on a variety of services in medical benefits and lifestyle benefits packages--each for around $12 a month. Each package includes more than a dozen free or discounted programs such as LifeLock identity theft services, TelaDoc 24/7 phone access to doctors, and discounts on everything from chiropractors to restaurants to pet care. Some programs purchased on their own would cost as much as an entire CU Benefits Express package. "There has never been a better time to be a member of a credit union. The new Invest in America offers from American companies resonate with credit union members," said David Adams, CUcorp CEO and Michigan Credit Union League president/CEO. He noted the new additions significantly expand the scope of the products offered by credit unions. Also in November, Invest in America announced its Chrysler "Affiliate Rewards" program, where credit union members receive preferred pricing through the end of November. To date more than 2,000 credit unions market the program, with more than 200,000 General Motor and Chrysler vehicles sold. New partners are added every month. Invest in America also is offering discounts with Chrysler, GM, Sprint, Thor Industries, and Allied Moving and Storage. For more information use the link.
