4 credit union member benefits you should know about

« Return to Learn

Everyone has their own reason for joining a credit union. Some do it for the low fees and exceptional interest rates. Some do it to support local businesses and help build stronger communities. Others join a credit union because our cooperative, not-for-profit model aligns with their values.

Whatever your reason for becoming a credit union member, we hope you’ll take full advantage of your membership benefits. From financial planning to educational resources, we provide a whole range of benefits and services geared toward helping you achieve your financial goals.

In case you missed them, here are four often overlooked membership benefits that can help save you money and improve your financial health:


1. Save on your wireless phone service

Lower your monthly phone bill with a discount on wireless service. Credit union members can save 33-63% on TracFone and other wireless brands that run on the AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile networks—no contracts, credit checks or mystery fees required. Find a phone that fits your budget or keep the one you have with an easy-to-install SIM kit. Compare providers and start saving.


2. Ace your taxes

Want to save time, money and stress all in one shot? Get help with your taxes. We’ve teamed up with TurboTax to help our members get their maximum refund—plus $15 off federal tax products. TurboTax makes filing easy by translating complex tax laws into simple questions and putting everything into the right forms for you. Get started on your taxes.


3. Protect your home

Home is where the heart is. It’s also where your valuables are—and where a lot of us spend the majority of our time these days. If you’re thinking about taking your security game to the next level, save on a new home monitoring system from the award-winning home security provider SimpliSafe. Stay safe at home.


4. Keep calm and carry on

It’s safe to say we all maybe lost some sleep over the past year. Sleep better and stay centered in the new year with Calm, the top app for meditation and sleep. Save $40 on an annual subscription and gain access to hundreds of guided meditations, sleep stories, breathing exercises and more. Start sleeping better.
