Holiday Banking with Leyden Credit Union

Published on November 29th, 2017

The holidays are a time to enjoy the company of family and friends, not a time to be stressed about money. Financial insecurities can weigh particularly heavy around the holidays, which is why planning ahead and budgeting smartly is the best gift you can give yourself. At Leyden Credit Union, we want to make sure your holiday season goes off without a hitch, which is why we offer several opportunities to make sure this season is the best it can be. Here are just a few ways we can help you prepare for the holidays.

Holiday Loan

The holidays can be a dangerous time for credit card users. It’s easy to rack up a huge credit card bill and then be stuck paying it off for an undermined period of time. Try a different route this year for financing all your holiday expenses. When you are a member of our credit union near Northlake, you can take advantage of our low rate Holiday Loan. With a Holiday Loan from a credit union near Northlake, you can get a fixed low rate, with rates as low as 9.25% APR, which is much lower than most credit cards.  Furthermore, you will have a fixed short term of 12 months, which is much better than carrying a balance on a credit card for who knows how long.  And finally, you can enjoy a fixed payment amount.  There will be no surprise come January and you will already know how much your payment will be.   

Apply today and start making smart financial decisions this holiday season! Be a smart consumer this year and stay away from the credit cards.

Visa Holiday Gift Cards

We have all been in a situation where we struggled to find the right gift for someone we care about. Gift buying can be one of the most stressful parts of the holidays, but it doesn’t have to be. With a Visa holiday gift card from Leyden Credit Union, you’re giving your loved one the gift of choosing whatever they want! Don’t waste your time shopping online or wandering around the mall. Give the gift of a holiday gift card.  You can purchase one from any teller or call Leyden Credit Union at 847.455.8440 for details.

Get Ready For Next Year With a Holiday Account

At Leyden Credit Union, you can save for the holidays all year long by opening a Holiday Account.  This savings account can be funded regularly through a direct deposit of payroll ($10 minimum) or an automatic transfer from another LCU account.  On your choice of either October 15th, November 1st, November 15th, or December 1st each year, funds are automatically transferred to your savings account so that you can start your holiday shopping.  Dividends on this account are the same as a regular Savings Account.

Finding a credit union near Northlake that you can trust can make a huge difference in your holidays. Leyden Credit Union is here to provide you with smart financial choices and the counseling necessary to stay on-budget.
