It’s time to say smooches to your big Bank. We’ve all seen the headlines; big banks have been caught cheating. It’s easy to join the bandwagon and bash them, but we’re a Credit Union, we operate differently than that. We want the opportunity to show you the “Credit Union Difference.”
Skeptical? Good. It’s always better to rely on the facts so here are a few to get you thinking. Last year credit union members nationwide collectively saved a staggering $6.3 billion (no, that’s not a typo) by choosing to become a member of their local credit union instead of a customer of one of those big national banks. How do credit unions create that kind of savings? SBCU is like every other credit union—we exist to help our members, not to make a profit. That’s right, we are a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Unlike big banks which typically have shareholders who divide up the earnings. Rarely do those earnings have any significant benefits for the bank’s customers. SBCU returns its earnings to our members in the form of better rates and lower fees that save you money. Compare rates
In case you aren’t convinced, here are a few more facts. SBCU offers a wealth of convenience with three centrally located branches in the South Bay. Our members have access to a shared credit union network of 30,000 ATMs available nationwide, free of charge where they can take care of business while away from home. SBCU offers online banking, bill pay, CU Live video banking, text banking, and a mobile banking app that includes mobile check deposit so you can take care of business on the go. If it sounds like everything you need to manage your financial life then you haven’t missed a thing.
All of those facts create a compelling case for switching to SBCU. But if they were all you considered you would miss the key difference that we are most proud of and our members truly appreciate. What is it? It’s our people. It starts with our branch employees who go out of their way to get to know you personally so they can serve you better. And it extends all the way to our volunteer, member-run board who keep SBCU focused on delivering the kind of service you simply won’t get at a large national bank. Big banks are proud of their earnings and profit margins. We don’t need to worry about those things. We take pride in helping you realize your financial goals. Like our wonderful South Bay community, it’s the people who truly make the difference at SBCU.
We are small enough to care but big enough to serve your needs.
