121 Community Outreach Team
Being involved in our community is important
to 121 Financial Credit Union - it is part of the
reason we chose the name that when said
properly sounds like "one-to-one." As a credit
union we support many local or local chapters
of national charitable organizations.
Auto Loans: 0% APR vs. Cash Back
- Don't Get Fooled Again!
You often hear auto dealerships touting
0% Interest on their commercials, but is
0% always the best option? Not always!
There are times when you would be able
to save more by taking a cash-back offer
in lieu of the 0% offer, and financing the
balance with a low rate at the credit union.
It's only July, but already time to think
about shopping for back to school clothes and supplies. If you're in a pinch for funds, check out our Back-to-School Loan.
