Become More Financially Responsible During COVID-19 with These 4 Tips and Services!

With so many people spending time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, online usage is as high as it’s ever been! And because of so many being more conscious of their safety and health, online shopping has seen a massive boom. With this comes two caveats: overspending and debt accumulation.

Our credit union in Brownsville offers various services that can keep your money safe while growing your account for future financial goals. Consider these four money management tips!

Spend Wisely

At VFCU, we offer free checking to members so they can focus on budgeting. According to the Federal Financial Literacy and Education Committee, some of the best ways to budget is by:

  • Tracking your spending habits over the span of a few weeks to know where to cut corners.
  • Comparing prices and quality of the products and services you use throughout the month.
  • Making room for financial goals like a weekend trip or purchasing a car.

Save and Invest Your Money

We believe in working smarter, not harder. As a member, you’ll have access to various services that help you save and grow interest:

Protect Your Finances

Did you know that we can also protect your prized possessions with safe deposit boxes? Keep heirlooms, important documents, and much more in any of the deposit box sizes we have.

Borrow Appropriately

During these trying times, borrowing may be your only option. When doing so, make sure to create a repayment plan since paying on time improves your credit score. Apply for any of our loans online, including signature loans for up to 50 months and as low as 8.85% APR.
