CUs on the Tube Tinker FCU bucks the norm
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (11/17/08)--Tinker FCU has launched a website, BucktheNorm.com, to reach young adults. The “norm,” according to Tinker FCU, is spending beyond a consumer’s needs, getting into debt, and not knowing how to get out. The site aims to provide information to young adults so that they can “buck the norm” and achieve financial empowerment. The website provides articles about spending and finances, a link for a free credit report, and an application for a scholarship contest. It explains financial products, such as checking accounts, savings accounts and retirement accounts. BucktheNorm.com also uses Twitter to provide links to financial empowerment stories. For more information about “bucking the norm,” watch the video or use the link. Tinker FCU has $1.7 billion in assets and is based in Oklahoma City, Okla. For more information, use the link.
