WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (March 13, 2012) – Truliant Federal Credit Union is promoting its mission of enhancing financial lives by offering higher rate certificate specials to its member-owners through April 14. Options include 1.00% for an 18-month CD, 1.50% for a 24 month CD, 1.75% for a 48-month CD and 2.00% for a 60-month CD.
The credit union, based in Winston-Salem, says that its member-owners earn more than customers of larger banks. “It is not our primary goal to provide shareholders with bonuses and milestones like the big banks,” said Karen DeSalvo, Truliant’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We put our members first, and our profits go back into their pockets through higher rates on personal accounts and lower rates on loans.”
Officials said the goal of the campaign is to offer better rates, not just to the member-owners of Truliant, but to those in the community who are eligible to join and are looking to earn more on their savings and investments. All of Truliant’s certificates pay competitive dividends and are federally insured up to $250,000.
“We want potential member-owners to know that we are here to help them enhance their financial lives,” said DeSalvo. “We first seek to understand each member’s financial situation and their goals in order to best match our services to their needs. We will never push a product on members or open an account when a better solution is available.
Truliant’s certificate specials are good through mid April. Other rates and terms are also available. Any person interested in learning more should contact 800-822-0382 or visit TruliantFCU.org/CertificateSpecials.
