When overseeing your finances, it’s extremely important to turn to an institution that you can trust … and who makes money management convenient. As a testament to just how handy the convenience services we offer at 1st Ed Credit Union really are, we published a blog on what exactly they entail. And while convenience services cover everything from mobile banking to paying bills, the perks provided by signing up for a convenience checking account are unmatched.
Here’s how you can save and spend smartly with a convenience checking account.
Zero Minimum Balance Requirements
At 1st Ed Credit Union, we believe that a financial institution should help you budget your money, not capitalize on it. If you’re considering making the switch to a different bank or credit union, minimum balance requirements and monthly fees should be an indication that you may want to steer clear. Why should you have to pay to store your money safely with a financial institution that you intend on trusting?
A checking account with 1st Ed Credit Union means that your sole focus can be on saving and spending according to YOUR budget and financial goals. Expect nothing less!
We know that a checking account may not be your only financial tool managed with 1st Ed. And that’s why we offer overdraft protection to step in and prevent your checking from dropping below zero dollars.
Your savings, money market account, and home equity line of credit can all act as a cushion to ensure that your checking account balance never triggers a non-sufficient funds fee.
Account Access 24/7
If you’re fond of monitoring your checking account balance just as much as your social media accounts, then a membership with 1st Ed Credit Union has you covered.
Online and mobile banking mean you can review transactions, make transfers, and even re-order checks from the comfort of your own home. Consider your laptop, tablet, or smartphone as the quickest way to check up on your finances … any time and at any place!
To spend money from your checking account in-person or via online vendors, you kind of need a debit card. But to get rewarded for making daily purchases, a credit card isn’t the only way!
With 1st Ed Rewards, you can earn one point for every $4 spent in debit signature transactions. After racking up points by making purchases at the businesses you frequent daily, it’s time to cash in. Redeem your points for a variety of rewards and snag a product or experience that you really want.
Make the switch to a checking account that prioritizes your budget and rewards you for taking control of your finances. Learn more about a convenience checking account with 1st Ed Credit Union.
