I started taking online paid surveys in order to make a little bit of extra cash. I made about $100 last week by just answering some questions. It’s not a lot, but it’s nice to have some wiggle room

Persuaded towards their choice. In contrast I have always found credit union staff to be friendly, and up front with my interests in mind.

They exist solely to serve their members and not to pay high dividends to share holders. The profits are returned to members, offering higher deposit rates and lower rates on loans.

My credit union is large enough to provide full banking services for me. There are half a dozen credit unions within a few blocks of home, two that belong to my branch. They are popular here in BC where accounts are insured for the entire amount.

Credit union employees are modestly paid, even the executives. They don’t have to generate billions of dollars in profit. They have modest buildings, modest offices, no multi-million dollar bonuses, and they don’t own any politicians.

Owning politicians costs a lot of money.

Likewise, you owe them nothing. Best way to go is to your local credit union. All the benefits and fewer drawbacks. Big money can go there, also :}

Now they want more of your money…. Where will these bankers be when the unemployment rate reaches 25%, and no one has any money left…..
