A Christmas Club That’s Your Secret Santa.
By saving regularly in a Christmas Club account you will know that the money for next year’s holiday travel, festivities and gift giving will be there. Small amounts saved on a regular basis add up to a sizable sum. Just choose the amount you would like to save each week and watch it grow in time for the holiday season.
You can choose weekly or monthly lump sum payments in the amounts of $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $25.00 or $50.00. At the end of 50 weeks, if all payments have been made you will receive a bonus payment equal to the amount of one weekly payment.
To receive the bonus you must make all payments prior to the end of the 50th week and money must remain on deposit until the Christmas Club funds are deposited to your account (mid-November).
Christmas Clubs will automatically transfer from your checking account. Customers are allowed to sign up for Automatic Funds Transfer through December 31st of each year.

COLLEGE BONUS SAVINGS
Their passion is our bonus.
For many college students, they don’t just have a major. They have a passion. That’s why we bring more to college savings, because students that expect more from life, give more to our communities.
To help you save for the growing cost of college for your children, we created College Bonus Savings which gives you a bonus of $1,000 plus interest when your child turns 18 as long as you open the account by your child’s 10th birthday and save the minimum monthly amount each year.
If the College Bonus Savings account is opened between the ages of 0 to 5, the minimum opening deposit is $25.00 and the minimum monthly contribution until their 18th birthday is $25.00.
If the account is opened between the ages of 5 to 10 years, the minimum opening deposit is $500.00 and the minimum monthly contribution until their 18th birthday is $50.00.
You are allowed to miss one deposit per year and convenient transfers from your checking or savings account to your College Bonus Savings account(s) can be set up to ensure regular, automatic deposits so you won’t lose your bonus. A $5.00 activity fee will be applied to withdrawals or transfers over three per quarter. If the account is closed within 59 days of the opening date a closing fee of a $10 will apply.
Savings APY yield is 0.10% as of 10/21/2015. Rate is subject to change. Fee may reduce earnings.
CREDIT BOOST CD
Because Yes Is A Beautiful Word.
Say yes to a Credit Boost CD and you’ll hear it more often. After all, a credit score is one of the important determining factors when it comes to borrowing money – and getting a low rate when you do. The higher the number, the lower the risk. That means consumers with higher scores are more likely to get approved for credit, and to get the best interest rates when they do. And they are more likely to get discounts on insurance and look good to employers.
When you come in to apply, we will review your credit report together and discuss your credit goals with you. Whether you’re wondering how to establish credit or you’d like to improve your existing score, a Credit Boost CD is a great way to begin. It is a personal loan backed by a Certificate of Deposit that is designed to help you establish a good payment history, an important step in building a higher credit score. You make regular monthly on-time payments over time. At the end of the term, after you’ve made all your payments, you get the money in the CD or keep it invested. And you should see an improved credit score (based on your payment history).
If you have no credit or need to rebuild your credit, our new Credit Boost CD is perfect for you. Give yourself credit and what you own is the future. Contact your local branch to apply today and you can start hearing the one word that makes the future sound great.
