CU System
Suze Orman to Larry King CUs have great rates
WASHINGTON (12/14/09)--Credit unions offer better rates on credit cards, personal finance guru Suze Orman told Larry King on Larry King Live Thursday. King asked Orman if credit unions are a better option for those interested in transferring their credit card balances to credit unions from a bank. “Yes, yes, yes, yes,” Orman said. “Credit unions--especially ones that are federally chartered--the maximum interest rate they can charge you is 18%. Now, while that may sound like a very high interest rate, the truth of the matter is many of these banks today are charging 29.99% interest.” “So here is what I am suggesting. I think the United States of America--all of you should start looking into credit union credit cards and do a balance transfer,” Orman said. She suggested consumers visit creditcardconnection.org, a new site that offers information about financial institutions offering credit cards. Users can enter in their zip codes to find credit unions, Orman said.
