How Credit Unions Can Help You Save Money

Published on November 19th, 2018

You might be wondering why more and more people are turning to credit unions as their financial institution of choice. The answer is simple and clear–credit unions give you the chance to save more money in a variety of ways. Learn how Leyden Credit Union, as well as other credit unions, help you save money. Leyden Credit Union serves the area of Elmhurst, as well as anybody who lives, works, or worships in the townships of Leyden, Addison, Elk Grove, Lyons, Maine, Proviso, or York.

Low Minimum Balance

Many banks and other financial institutions require you to have a high minimum balance in order to not have a fee withdrawn from your account on a monthly basis. Thankfully, credit unions realize that not everyone can have such a high minimum and at Leyden Credit Union, ours is set at $25.  With this $25 minimum balance, you are entitled to all credit union services and it grants you full voting privileges in selecting our Board of Directors.


Low Rate Credit Card With Rewards Program with Fewer Requirements

Many credit unions have rewards program opportunities with their credit card program for their members. At Leyden Credit Union, we are happy to announce that we have enhanced our credit card program and now offer ScoreCard Rewards. All that members need to do is open an LCU Visa Credit Card and then start accruing points.  You earn 1 point for every $1 spent and points can be redeemed for air travel, merchandise and gift cards.


And, because we have one of the lowest fixed interest rate cards in the industry, this will help you save money compared to other financial institutions.


At Leyden Credit Union, our goal is to help you. All of our members are shareholders of the credit union and the more successful Leyden Credit Union is, the more you will be able to reap the benefits.
