The Inside Scoop on County Federal
Congratulations. You’re one of us!
We’ve got a pile benefits and perks to share. Curious how we got them? It started hundreds of years ago.
Credit unions began with the concept of “people helping people.” Unlike traditional banks, we are a nonprofit financial cooperative owned by members.
Because we answer to members, not shareholders, we plow all profits back into County Federal to make it better. The more money we have, the more you benefit.
Typically, this means:
- Paying you higher interest rates on savings accounts, money market accounts and certificates (what banks call CDs)
- Offering you lower interest rates on loans
It also means a surprising number of sweet benefits. (Literally even. Check out our discount on See’s Candies.)
So here’s a snapshot of what you can look forward to.
Countywide ─ and nationwide ─ access. We’ve got six branches throughout Santa Clara County and are members of the co-op network.
Fee-free ATMs everywhere! As part of the co-op network, we provide access to nearly 30,000 ATMs throughout the country. (For comparison’s sake, Bank of America has approximately 16,000-plus, Chase has about 15,500 and Wells Fargo has about 12,800.)
Relationship Rewards. This tiered incentive program rewards you with benefits for banking with us. There are different levels. The more you bank with us, the more you receive. Show me the perks
Entertaining discounts. We’ve got special rates on fun. The discounts include tickets for local attractions such as movies, Gilroy Gardens, the Monterey Aquarium, Raging Waters San Jose and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. But the fun goes beyond our backyard. You can also get discounts to Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, Legoland and more. Find some fun
To see the full range of County Federal benefits, take a few minutes to poke around the website and visit us on Facebook. There are freebies, opportunities and perks at every turn. We even offer free Coinstar service to members (which saves you the 9% transaction fee). A good place to start is online at the Member Discounts.
Congratulations on joining County Federal. And thank you. Your membership just made our credit union that much stronger.
Together, we can do great things!
