President’s Letter: Thankful and Grateful

Next week, families all across the country will gather around the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving. Food will be in abundance and spirits will be high. Spending time with my family at this time of year I fondly look forward to, but I know this may not be the situation for many others.

There are families encountering circumstances in life that they never imagined, forcing them to face challenges that may seem insurmountable. It could be a loss of a job or a health crisis that has diverted their finances to address the situation. Too often, children are involved, as they are innocent bystanders to broken homes.

We know these stories, because we hear them too often with the community work we do with the San Antonio Food Bank and Bill’s Elves. Their mission to help families and children in trying situations is year round, and often during the holiday season, their plight comes to light.

As we will soon gather around the table with our families and friends, I will certainly take the time to appreciate my family and loved ones.

This Thanksgiving, we will continue to help those in need of help. We will welcome young men and women in the military to our Thanksgiving tables as they are separated from their families to serve this great nation. We will come together as one, as a strong community and nation. And I am so very grateful for that.

 

As always, I remain in service to you,

 

Robert “Bob” Glenn
President/CEO

Shop Smart during the Holidays

With the holiday season upon us, it’s almost impossible to not get caught up in the excitement of holiday shopping. Although some like to refer to this as the season of giving, there’s nothing wrong with trying to be smart about it.

Below are some tips to help you be a smarter shopper:

Set a budget and game plan

Figure out who you are shopping for, what items you need, and how much you are intending to spend.

Start online first

Browse around online first to compare prices and familiarize yourself with store policies like price-matching.

Try to use debit instead of credit

Keep from using your credit cards for holiday shopping so that you don’t end up in a hole of debt. Using cash or debit is a great way to track your spending so that you know your shopping is done when you run out of money.

Look over your current debt

Tally up all your current debt so that you are aware of what you already owe before you go and tack on more debt.

Be smart about items on sale

Some retailers will mark up the original price of an item and then reduce it making you think you are getting a “great deal.”

Safeguard yourself against holiday overspending with the help of AFFCU. We offer a variety of options that can alleviate your financial stress. For any questions or to learn more call us at 210.673.5610 or toll-free at 800.227.5328.
