Watch For These Scams

With credit card fraud reaching nearly $44 billion this year alone, we are doing everything we can to minimize risk. By utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning, credit unions like ours are continually evolving to keep members like you safe. Even with all of that technology, nothing can protect you more than staying informed and diligent. This summer, we’ve seen a growing number of scams designed to target good people like you.

Save Big This Summer

Do you have an upcoming vacation you’re saving for? Or maybe you want a new summer wardrobe, need to pay college tuition for your child, or are saving for a downpayment on that convertible you’ve always wanted. Regardless of what you’re saving for, it can be easy to get started. Making some small changes can really add up! Here’s a few simple tips to help you get started:

Deposit on the go

AT MACU, we want banking to be as convenient as possible for you. Our ATMs are undergoing some programming updates during the week of June 25 at all three of our branches (Portage, Ohio St. and Woodland). After the updates,
the ATMs will no longer accept deposits. However, you can still make deposits on the go! In fact, it will be faster than ever! Simply use our drop box. Drop in your deposit envelope, and that's it! No waiting. No punching in numbers. Just drop and go. It's that easy!

Boost Your Credit Score

Spring is in the air, and it’s time to do some spring cleaning of your credit score. If yours is suffering, there are several ways to make strides in raising your score. Remember, the higher your credit, the lower the interest rate you’ll receive on loans. So, start working on getting your credit up, so you will have a nice, low rate when you make your next large purchase.

New Partnership Gives You Access to FREE Education

Because of a new partnership with Digital Defense, MACU members have free access to education. Digital Defense is a provider of risk management and information security solutions.
