What’s Important to You in a Checking Account?
How do you find a checking account that is compatible with the way you bank? Well, it’s essential to take a minute and ask yourself, “What’s important to me in a checking account?” Is it higher paid dividends? Maybe it’s great benefits? Or, could it be both?
At AFFCU, we have a checking account to fit all those needs. Our Elite account was designed especially for those who are looking to get the most out of their money. This high-yield account offers a tiered dividend structure where the planned Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is one of the highest you’ll find anywhere! Meaning, the more you keep in your checking account, the more you earn!
With added benefits like Cash Rewards1, Fee-free AFFCU Visa® Gift Cards, three FREE boxes of standard checks per calendar year, plus no AFFCU Foreign ATM Transaction and Inquiry Fees, this account pays for itself and more!
Get a checking account that will fit all your needs. Open an Elite Checking account today and start earning while you save. Learn more at GoAFFCU.com or call us at 210.673.5610 or toll-free at 800.227.5328.
1 Transactions that qualify for Cash Rewards will receive 12 cents cash back for every signature-based transaction made with a debit card that is five dollars or more. Not all checking accounts are eligible for Cash Rewards. The credit union reserves the right to determine if transactions processed under the Cash Rewards program are usual and customary. For transactions that are not usual and customary, they are 1) not eligible for the rewards payment and 2) may result in a loss of debit card privileges and any accrued rewards cash.

President’s Letter: Looking Forward to 2019
When the end of the year started to become reality, it always surprised me how fast the days and months go by. In the blink of an eye, time goes by and before you know it, next year becomes now. It doesn’t mean that we are not prepared, because we have been planning for it for months, but I’m here to tell you 2019 promises to be an exciting time at AFFCU as we bring you improved technological services and greater conveniences.
You may have seen improvements in some of our branches already. Now you can use our IMX (Intelligent Member Experience) video conferencing services, which lets you connect with a Financial Services Representative (FSR) via a video screen within a confines of a secure office. Our friendly reps that you have come to know over the years are now available to you on a TV screen. They’ll be able to service your account and maybe even give you the weather and sports, too!
You’ll also see special ITM (Intelligent Teller Machines) installed in the branches and drive thrus in the first part of the year. These are full-service machines that let you do transactions, deposits, cash withdrawals and much more. If technology can be a little overwhelming, do not worry, as our FSRs will be right by your side to assist you.
As the months go by, you’ll continue to see improvements in our online banking and mobile platforms. We understand how fast technology changes and we plan on making those features and functions available to you to make it as easy as possible to bank with us.
This time next year I’m sure I’ll be asking myself again where the time went and how did the calendar flip so fast. But as we’ll be sure to look back, you’ll see that we spent our time making sure we provided those technological improvements to make the days go by much easier.
As always, I remain in service to you
Robert “Bob” Glenn
