If you’re like me… you like anything and everything that much more if it is free. Free food literally tastes better. Free movies seem more enjoyable. Free advice is better than therapy. Now, maybe I’m biased, but what would make you like an already great event (like Race on the Base for example) that much more? What if you could participate for FREE?
(Insert drum roll here) Well… you can! What is the catch? All you have to do is create an account with our title sponsor, Southland Credit Union. Sound like a trap? It’s not! It’s true… you have to submit a $25 deposit to open an account. But you can withdraw it. You can keep it. You can invest it. You can make it rain. You can do whatever you want because it is still YOUR money!
If you’re not sold already, I’m going to pitch this idea a little more to you (even though it really shouldn’t require much convincing). Southland Credit Union is an Orange County based credit union with a long standing history in the area. They regularly give back to their local communities through donations, sponsorships, and more. Another great thing about credit unions in general is that they tend to co-op. This means that you don’t necessarily have to do all your banking specifically at a Southland Credit Union branch… you can go to one of their many partners for banking or ATM usage which includes Schools First FCU, 7-Eleven, Arrowhead CU, Altura CU, Visterra CU, and many more! This eases your banking experience and makes everything that much more accessible.
