2016 has been a big year of “New” for SBCU. For starters, have you checked out this new website? While most of these upgrades and enhancements have been in the works for a long time, 2016 was the year to launch.
We have redesigned our website to bring a better user experience, easier navigation, and improved functionality. Responsive to all mobile devices, your closest South Bay Credit Union location is now in the palm of your hand.
Speaking of mobile devices. This year we launched an updated Mobile Branch app and brought on board two additional apps for Mobile Check Deposit and MobiMoney® Vantiv debit card controls. Find them all in your mobile app store. Click here to learn more.
While your home banking travels with you, you can also choose to travel to one of our new locations. In April we relocated our headquarters back to our roots on Pacific Coast Hwy. This move brought us in proximity to our original branch location on PCH, opened back in 1953.
A Third Location
If one new branch is good, two new locations are even better! Artesia Blvd. housed our headquarters for 45 years, we couldn’t just up and leave, so we didn’t. Our third location is our newest baby, arriving early Fall. Less than a mile away from our previous location, this new Artesia branch is a much needed, fresh change. Come check it out on November 22nd from 9am-3pm as we host our 3rd annual Children’s Hospital Blood Drive and Open House.
EMV debit MasterCard®
Fresh starts are sometimes bumpy paths, much like the conversion from mag strip cards to the new EMV chip-enabled cards. You’ll find memes and comedians poking fun at the confusion we are all experiencing with every transaction now. Do you use the chip, do you use the mag strip? It’s a surprise at every merchant and it’s not just us-it’s everywhere in the US. This too shall pass and we’ll all have a good laugh once it’s over.. at least we hope so. Until then our slogan is “Just choose CREDIT” for every debit card transaction to minimize the rejection.
