October

In Texas, we welcome the fall with football games, feasts, the State Fair of Texas and cooler weather. At City Credit Union, we welcome the fall by celebrating our Members with Member Appreciation Day and International Credit Union Day- a day dedicated to demonstrate that “Dreams Thrive Here.” Thanks to a cooperative of loyal Members like you, we can offer low rates and high-interest deposit accounts. Sounds to me like there’s a lot to celebrate! Join our fall festivities on Thursday, October 19, from 10AM – 4PM.

Talking about the State Fair of Texas reminds me of all the fun rides, fried food and competitive games. Thankfully, at City CU we have the tools to get you ready for all those upcoming expenses. Visit our education page for helpful links, worksheets, calculators and more. Before you test your strength on the High Striker, test your saving skills:

  • Create a budget. Get your kids to help and make this a teaching opportunity on money
  • Save on admission. Visit the State Fair on $4 admission days. Bring 4 can goods and get a $4 discount on admission. Click here for other State Fair discounts.
  • Ride DART. Saves you gas, money and time.
  • Plan ahead and take advantage of free shows, exhibits and concerts.

Things like your credit score and driving history affect your insurance rates, so it’s a good idea to revisit your policies – and what you’re paying for them – every few years. We now offer auto, homeowners, renters, motorcycle, boat, RV and pet insurance through a number of well-known insurance companies. Our dedicated insurance agent can review your existing policy and find you the best coverage, rate and deductible.

In the fall the streets seem to be quieter and the air cooler – there’s just no better time to cruise than now. With City CU’s AskAuto® app, you can get pre-approved in minutes, choose a vehicle, compare prices and get on the road in your new vehicle. Start cruising now with City CU’s AskAuto app.

This month, City CU will be collecting coats, sweaters and blankets for Austin Street Center and other family shelters in Cooke, Ellis, and Grayson County. Collections will be located in all our branches or you can donate directly to the shelter of your choice, knowing that you’re making a difference with the families living in those shelters.

Learn more about this month’s charitable organizations here.

Let’s turn a new leaf together, happy fall!
