President’s Letter: Member Rewards
We all like to be rewarded. It serves as recognition for something that we’ve done, a service provided or a milestone reached. The Member Rewards program at AFFCU was created to recognize you with special savings.
The credit union has so many valuable members who, over time, have entrusted us with their financial services. Those members not only have brought their own accounts to us, but have opened accounts for their children and other family members. It is why we began the Member Rewards program several years back. Your loyalty to this credit union means a great deal to us.
The Member Rewards program offers you special rate reductions on loans and bonus points for share products. To qualify, you must meet certain criteria, such as have a checking account with direct deposit. There are other qualifications that can apply, and you can read more about them on our website at www.goaffcu.com/member-benefits.
The program is always evolving. For example, this summer there are special auto protection rewards for any auto loan you bring to the credit union. Not only will you be able to get discounts on your loan rate, but you will have protection package options to protect you and your investment. I’m sure you’ll find these benefits worthwhile.
This is just one of the many things we’re doing to show our appreciation for your valued membership. Please give us a call and let us know how we can help you and your family take advantage of these rewards. It’s the recognition you deserve for being an AFFCU member.
In service I remain,
Robert “Bob” Glenn

Reminder: Quincy Branch Closing in July
Effective July 31, 2019, the AFFCU Quincy branch located at 501 Quincy St, San Antonio, TX 78212 will be permanently closing. The location was not ideal in providing the convenience to members as we had hoped, and thus saw decreased traffic over the last several months.
Members still have access to five AFFCU branches located in San Antonio and one in Del Rio, nearly 5,000 Shared Branches worldwide, as well as over 30,000 surcharge fees free ATMs through the CO-OP network.
Thank you for your valued membership and continued business with AFFCU. If you have any questions on how we can better serve you, please feel free to reach out to us at www.GoAFFCU.com/ContactUs.

Yes, Young Families Can Save & Invest!
Put it into numbers. How much money will you need to save by 65 to promote enough retirement income and to live comfortably? Are you on pace to build a retirement nest egg that large?
Start today & never stop. If you have already started, congratulations! In getting an early start, you have taken advantage of a young investor’s greatest financial asset: time. If you haven’t started saving and investing, you can start now!
Vow to keep “paying yourself first.” Consider finding money to save and invest for your family’s near-term and long-term goals. Are you spending a lot of money on goods and services you want rather than need? Cut back on that kind of spending. Is credit card debt siphoning away dollars you should assign to saving and investing? Fix that financial leak and avoid paying with plastic whenever you can.
