Holiday Fortune Cookie: Yes, Join a CU
MADISON, Wis. (12/27/13)--Credit unions are so mainstream now they are appearing in the oddest books. One book Santa presented as a stocking stuff on Christmas morning for a family member of a Credit Union National Association employee featured credit unions in--of all things--a fortune cookie.
 
The book, "A Year of  Fortunes (Without the Cookies)" by Knock Knock Who's There Inc.,  has tongue-in-cheek fortunes for each day of the year.  For example, Jan. 25's fortune is "Money doesn't buy happiness, but does happiness buy movie tickets?" Or Dec. 31: "Send in the clowns. It's time."
 
But one fortune--the entry for Jan. 27--caught News Now's notice.  It said: "Yes, you should probably switch to a credit union."
