FOX8 Consumer Reports Save money at CUs
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (9/22/08)--Credit unions received positive press on a television station in North Carolina Tuesday. FOX8 consumer reporter Melissa Painter, with the help of Consumer Reports, provided tips for consumers on how to save hundreds of dollars each month. Among the advice: check out a credit union. "Are you still paying bank fees?" Painter asked in the report. "You don't have to. Look at a credit union. Credit unions like Allegacy FCU and Truliant FCU are open to just about anybody, and credit unions have lower rates and almost no fees." Other advice included, comparing insurance costs, buying generic drugs, checking out grocery store brand products, evaluating the phone bill and paying off credit cards. The show aired on Sept. 16. Allegacy FCU and Truliant FCU are both based in Winston-Salem, N.C. Allegacy has $1.123 billion in assets and Truliant has $1.208 billion.
