Tired of pushy sales people?

Misty Smith, Jodi Leach and Lisa Curley of Coconino County Federal Credit Union are anything but that.

As a not-for-profit cooperative, the credit union is the perfect community partner because the money it makes after expenses goes back to its members in the form of higher savings rates, lower loan rates, low fees and offering more products and services.

“A bank makes money to pay their shareholders. Our account holders are our shareholders so we pay them,” said president and chief executive officer Jennifer Harris.

“We strive to provide the community with an affordable banking option, we provide friendly personal service. There is a myth that credit unions are not as sophisticated as the banks maybe because we don’t spend tons of money to make slick TV ads, we would rather use those funds to help our members, and we still offer all the cool stuff a bank does.”

Some of the features they offer include free online banking, bill pay, mobile banking, pop money, text or e-mail alerts and notifications, low cost or no monthly fee checking accounts, savings, CDs, IRAs and loans of every shape and size.

“As a member of the community we want everyone to have the best deal possible, we have new vehicle rates as low as 1.49 percent APR and our Visa credit card is currently at 9.15 percent. Next time you open a bill, check the interest rate, I bet we can beat it, just give us a chance,” said Harris.

Coconino Federal Credit Union has been around since 1955.

It became part of Page community in the early 1980s when it merged with Glen Canyon Federal Credit Union.

It is also the only federally insured financial institution based in Coconino County. Anyone that lives in the county is eligible to open an account.

“Our volunteer board of directors is a cross-segment of our community and they oversee the credit union to make sure we are operating in a sound and safe manner to continue to serve the community we know and love for many years to come,” Harris said.

“Coconino Federal Credit Union here as part of your community, here to help your family’s financial future and here to make a positive difference.”
