IUSA TODAYI CUs help students find free checking
MADISON, Wis. (8/3/11)--Credit unions are a good place for cash-strapped college students to find free checking, according to a Tuesday USA TODAY article. “Most big colleges and universities, along with many smaller ones, have their own credit unions,” wrote Sandra Block, USA TODAY personal finance reporter, in an article about free checking for students. “Most offer free checking with low minimum-balance requirements.” College students can withdraw their cash from more than 28,000 ATMs, including 5,500 ATMs at 7-Eleven convenience stores, if their credit union belongs to the CO-OP Network, the article said. “If you can find a 7-Eleven, you find a free credit union ATM,” Gary Perez, CEO of USC CU in Los Angeles, told the newspaper. The Credit Union National Association put Block in touch with Perez for the article. To read the article, use the link.
