MADISON, Wis (1/20/11)—Two personal finance columnists have advised consumers to seek out credit unions and the Credit Union National Association to save money when shopping for financial services. Journalist and author Jean Chatzky advised consumers to consider a credit union card to avoid impending high bank fees in her online newsletter, Making Money Make Sense. Chatzky pointed consumers to CUNA’s website at www.cuna.org to find a credit union where they are eligible. Consumers looking to get back on track financially can also get help from credit unions and CUNA, advised Jason Alderman in New Jersey Today (Jan 18.) The article, “Feeling the Pinch? Try These Belt-Tightening Tips,” counseled consumers to switch to free checking, and directed them to CUNA’s website.
