Connecticut league Sprint tout success
MERIDEN, Conn. (12/16/11)--Forty credit unions in Connecticut received marketing incentive checks for participating in the national 2011 Sprint Discount Program, said the Credit Union League of Connecticut.

Seventeen individuals attended a gathering at the league's office Tuesday to celebrate sharing in the excess of $78,000. During the 2010-2011 program year, Sprint reported that credit union members nationally saved more than $158 million in cell phone equipment and services.

The National Sprint discount program from Invest In America saves credit union members on wireless services through lower monthly bills, waived fees, and discounts. As part of the partnership with Sprint, credit unions receive noninterest income to support their marketing expenses. The Connecticut league has a marketing agreement with CU Solutions Group, based in Michigan, to offer the program in its state.

"The Sprint program keeps growing every year," said Nick Moalli, assistant vice president, credit union services, who administers the program at the league. "When credit unions realize they can help their members by providing real savings on a practical service while gaining a little advantage of their own, they'll see that programs like this one easily become an integral part of providing total financial services that members benefit from far into the future."
