Would you like to review your credit report and score?
You can, August 19 or 26 at our office
LSS Financial Counseling, a partner of your Credit Union, will have a representative at our office August 19 and 26 between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to review your report and provide a free credit analysis for you.
There should never be any surprises on your credit report. That's why it is important to always keep a close eye on your report. Having a strong credit score not only helps you to receive a lower interest rate when borrowing, it can also help you when you apply for a job, when moving into a new apartment or with the cost of certain insurance. Call us
at 651-227-0771 or visit our office to schedule your appointment time.
Is it time? Vehicle loans as low as 1.90% APR
. When is the right time to purchase a different vehicle? Sure there are many cars to look at,various makes and models... decisions, decisions. The good news, there is only one place to turn for financing when you buy your next vehicle, your Credit Union. Our rates are as low at 1.90% APR (model years 2011 - 2015) and if by chance you already purchased a vehicle and financed at a higher rate, you may qualify to refinance the balance with us. This low rate applies to trucks, motorcyles, motor homes and even titled boats. (Longer terms, up to 144 months may be available for certain titled vehicles.)
* These annual percentage rates were in effect 8/1/15 and are based on year of vehicle, or purpose of the loan, term and your credit history. All rates subject to change. Payment example: $25,000 borrowed for 60 months at 1.90% APR will have an approximate monthly payment of $437.10.
An unsecured loan -- as low as 6.75% APR
While most loans are secured by your savings, a titled vehicle or a home, your Credit Union offers competitive rates as low as 6.75% APR for unsecured amounts up to $10,000. Whether you'd like to borrow money for a vacation, home decorating or to consolidate higher interest rate loans at other lenders, this is the perfect plan. (The interest rate you receive will be based on the term of the loan, amount borrowed and your credit history.) Apply through our website, at our office or by calling 651-227-0771.
