Well folks, I am back and wow was it an exciting 2010 for ESCU!
I do apologize for being a little remiss at not writing a lot on my blog last year, but conversely we added a number of new products to better serve you and make ESCU more efficient.
As far as products go, WOW did we add some good ones. We now offer home and auto insurance through CUNA mutual and from what I have been hearing, they are beating some of the big insurance company’s rates on both home and auto insurance.
Another exciting product we have added to our lineup for you “techies” is Mobil Money. You can now use your smart phone to download ESCU’s book mark and have access to your money via your smart phone. Several members have commented to staff on how much they like this product. We are also now paying 3.99% on our new Interest Rewards Checking account. To take advantage of this account all you have to do is meet some very easy requirements to earn 3.99% on a free checking account!
Have you taken advantage of our Platinum Visa Card yet? At 7.99% with rewards it is one of the best Visa cards in the nation! We still offer the Gold and Classic cards at a slight higher interest rate to compliment our Platinum card!
Possibly one of the biggest steps that ESCU has taken in the past year was to convert our data processing system to a much better and robust system. As many of you know, this took place on 12/1/10 and the staff and management team greatly appreciate your patience while we made this conversion. For anyone who did have problems with their account, I sincerely apologize as our intent was and is to have one of the most user friendly systems to better assist our members as possible. For the most part, you as a member will not see these upgrades, but trust me, they are benefiting everyone and will continue to do so for many years to come. The previous data processing system ESCU was using was acquired in 1973 and has just become outdated in many areas which necessitated the change.
2011 is going to bring more added features to you as a member so be on the lookout for more of my blogs, advertisements and more to keep you updated. Also, if we do not offer a product or service that you think would benefit ESCU, please stop by, call or email me any suggestions so that we can better serve all the financial needs of our members.
