Why you should open an account with Mission Fed in 2016

January 15, 2016 | Mission Fed

At the beginning of any New Year, most of us find ourselves with renewed optimism and a healthy list of goals. I’m not going to refer to them as resolutions, because we know how difficult those are to keep. Calling them goals instead already makes them seem more attainable, right?

This could be the year you’re ready to own your first home, improve your current home thanks to a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), get a new car or even open a savings account for your children. Whatever your goals are, Mission Fed would like to be there to help you every step of the way. When our customers reach their goals, whether it’s a lower car payment or a better night’s sleep because they opened an IRA, we call those “Mission Fed Moments.” And they’re always fun to celebrate!

Wouldn’t you like to have a Mission Fed Moment? Then take a look at some of these reasons why you should open an account with Mission Fed in 2016. The sooner you do, the sooner we can help you save money.

All San  Diegans are welcome

Even though Mission Fed has been in business since 1961, the misperception still exists that, “I can’t open an account at a Credit Union.” At Mission Fed, all San  Diegans are welcome. You’ve probably read a Yelp review about our low Auto Loan rates or heard from a friend that we provide great service. So don’t wait any longer—find out for yourself today.

Local growth and local access

Mission Fed is the largest, locally based financial institution exclusively serving San  Diego County. We have more than 25 branches throughout San Diego because we know that even with access to convenient Online and Mobile Banking, sometimes you want to get your information in person.

$1 Million Mission Fed Money Match.

Throughout 2016, we’re offering daily drawings to match Debit and Credit Card purchases, and monthly drawings for Auto Loan payments, Home Loan payments or Direct Deposits. Why? Because it’s one way of the many ways we thank our customers for choosing Mission Fed. And one of the most popular! Take a look at all of the different ways our customers can win.

Accounts for every age

you open a Mission Fed account for yourself, you can get your child or grandchild off to a good start. Or when you open a Savings or Checking Account for yourself, you can also begin a Youth Savings Account for your children. I can still remember the day I took my money from my piggy bank and slid it across the counter to the teller to open my first savings account. I couldn’t believe that I was going to earn money for letting someone else borrow my money. It was definitely a trust-building moment.

Access to great rates on loans

we are a great union that was founded not for profit, but for service, we’re able to offer low loan rates. Whether you need an Auto Loan, Home Loan, Credit Card, or Quick Loan in San Diego, you can apply online, by phone or visit a branch and have a friendly and knowledgeable Mission Fed representative guide you through the steps. However you choose to connect with Mission Fed is fine with us.

Giving back to the community

When you have an account at Mission Fed, you can feel good about doing business with an organization that cares about our community and gives back to hundreds of educational and nonprofit organizations throughout the year. Mission Fed supports local events such as CBS 8’s Go Red for Women fundraiser for the San  Diego American Heart Association going on in January 2016, or Mission Federal ArtWalk coming up in April 2016. We’re also giving back in other ways, too—whether it’s providing high school students financial education through Mission Fed JA Finance Park, or donating to local nonprofits, we’re happy that we can give back to our community on behalf of our members.

We mean it when we say your success is our bottom line—all you need to do is open an account with us to discover how we can help get you to where you want to be. All San  Diegans are welcome, so find out what Mission Fed can do for you and help you enjoy Mission Fed Moments in 2016!
