MatriMoney gift registry will help valentines save
LOS ANGELES (2/11/10)--Valentine’s Day is Sunday--a day that many couples become engaged--and Water and Power Community CU (WPCCU) in Los Angeles is offering couples a MatriMoney wedding registry savings account. Couples can open the interest-bearing savings account to help save cash wedding gifts for honeymoon expenses, furniture or a down payment on a home. WPCCU gives MatriMoney instruction cards for engaged couples to include on their wedding invitations, and gift givers receive cash gift acknowledgement cards to announce their gift to the couple. A minimum of $50 is needed to open the MatriMoney accounts. The couple also must open and maintain a joint savings account in good standing with $25. The credit union also offers free online financial workshops for couples to discuss money and budgeting. WPCCU has $468 million in assets.
