Five Reasons Why Credit Unions Outrank Banks

‘Credit union’ has become somewhat of a buzz-word among younger generations when it comes to financial services they rely on and recommend to their friends and family. The movement to switch from your bank to a credit union may have started back when banks were taking bailouts and our economy was suffering – but, the momentum has only continued and credit unions are still growing!

So – what’s the deal? What makes credit unions so special?

Five reasons to choose a credit union:


If you are just starting out and need to build your credit history, or if your credit isn’t in the best shape – sometimes, you just need someone to take a chance on you. While banks tend to turn away millennials with low credit scores, credit unions roll up their sleeves and get to work.

Real People

Credit unions are about people helping people. Yes, technology is great to have in today’s fast paced world – but, sometimes, you just need to email or talk to a real person to get the answers you need, when you need them.


Your money is your money and it’s important you have access to your accounts no matter where you are. Credit unions offer tech and mobile products & services at the same level, if not, better than banks.

It's all about community

It’s part of the financial coop foundation to give back to the communities in which they serve. Next time you’re out and about at a weekend event in your town– look around, CAMPUS USA Credit Union will probably be there or recognized as a local sponsor!

Low fees work

Credit unions offer lower overdraft fees than banks, free checking and lower or no out-of-network ATM fees. Fewer fees at your credit union mean lower overall prices for top-quality financial services.
