Watch your mail for your new Credit Card this August!
This is the new credit card design.

Northwoods Credit Union is always looking for ways to lower costs or increase efficiency in our systems and processes.  As a result, we are changing our credit card processing system effective in August.

New credit cards will be coming your way

This change means you'll receive a new Platinum Visa card from us next month.  There will be no disruption in your ability to charge purchases, and you'll be able to use your existing card through the time your new card arrives.

New card, new account number

However, please note, your card will also contain a new account number and expiration date.  So, if you're using it for autopay purposes you'll need to notify merchants of your new account number and expiration date to avoid missed or late payments.

Next month, when your new card arrives, you'll receive complete instructions on activating your account, as well as other information you need to know.  If you have additional questions or concerns at that time, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 218-879-4181.

You can also visit our website at any time for more information at

Important Dates:
  Your new card will arrive mid-August.
  Saturday, August 23rd is the last day your current card will work.
  Sunday, August 24th you will need to activate and start using your new card. You will not be able to activate or use your new card prior to Sunday, August 24th.

Event Recaps
Youth Week, April 2014
Youth Week is always one of our favorite weeks of the year here at the Credit Union.  This year we had a beach theme and each child that deposited got some great beach-themed prizes!  They also earned EXTRA points for all those cool prizes on our prize shelf!  Be sure to open a youth account for the kids, grandkids, nieces & nephews in your life so they can start learning how to save today!

Shred & Recycle Event
This year marked our 6th Annual Shred Event and our 2nd year recycling appliances and electronics.  We were able to shred over 3,000 pounds of paper for our member's and community.  We also took a large load of appliances and electronics.  We love watching how this event grows from year to year.  We'll be sure to provide this event again next May so keep an eye out for the date!
We also collected food and money for the food shelf! Thank you to everyone for your donations!
