Checking Accounts

An Extra Credit checking account gives you tons of added benefits, along with all services you’ve come to love with a standard checking account:

Protect Your Checking Account

Isn’t it embarrassing to get stuck without enough cash at the register? (Awkward!) At Extra Credit Union, you have three different ways to protect your checking account to avoid overdraft fees, and hassles:

Mastercard® Secure Code

MasterCard Secure Code provides advanced security for online shopping when using your Extra Credit Union debit card.

 

Mastercard Secure Code terms of use agreement.

flexLINE of Credit

This revolving line of credit transfers funds to your checking account to cover a purchase when there are non-sufficient funds (NSF). Repayments are made from the member’s account in which they designate. Apply for flexLINE of Credit to get started.

Overdraft Transfer

If your checking account is overdrawn, funds from another Extra Credit Union account can be automatically transferred to cover the cost (for a fee of $3 per transfer). Call or visit Extra Credit Union to set up this service from the account of your choosing today.

Courtesy Pay*

This overdraft program covers you for overdrafts up to $500 when making purchases, which helps members with checking accounts in good standing to avoid a non-sufficient funds fee, bounced check or late fees. Courtesy pay is automatically added to your account after 90 days, with no application necessary. The program does not automatically apply to ATM withdrawals or purchases at retailers. For Point-of-Sale Pay {allows Courtesy Pay to kick in when making purchases with an ATM or debit card}, you must opt in. If you’re already enrolled in this service and wish to discontinue, you must opt out. The quickest way to enroll or discontinue this service is by logging in to eBanking. Next, select the opt in/opt out Point-of-Sale Pay option under the “services” tab. Or, feel free to call us at (586) 276-3000 for assistance.

* The courtesy pay program is just that, a courtesy, and is not an extension of credit. It does not constitute a written agreement of obligation or a pre-arranged agreement for Extra Credit Union to pay a member’s overdrafts, and we may withdraw the service at any time. Point-of-Sale Pay is not automatically available for ATM withdrawals or PIN-generated debit transactions; you must opt in. Please review the courtesy pay policy or call Extra Credit Union at (586) 276-3000 for complete details.

Savings Accounts

Extra Credit Union offers four flexible savings accounts to help you save for your goals. We can guide you in selecting the one that is best for you. Plus, you can develop a budgeted savings plan by setting up automatic transfers of money to your savings account.

Savings Account

An Extra Credit Union savings account enables you to:

  • Become a member and open your account with a minimum deposit/purchase a share in the credit union of $5
  • Add optional sub-accounts as needed
  • Incur no minimum balance
  • Earn interest that is compounded and paid quarterly on balances that are over $100

Youth Savings Account

A parent, family member, or friend can open a youth savings account for anyone under the age of 17 and help save for their future.

  • Open the account with a one-time, $5 membership deposit, which is required to purchase a share of membership in the credit union
  • Deposits and withdrawals can be made in any amount
  • Account interest is compounded and paid quarterly

Certificates of Deposit

A CD guarantees that you will save for a particular time frame, and that you’ll keep funds in your account without withdrawing any. Choose the amount you want to invest and the period of time to keep the funds on deposit. Remember that the longer the term of your CD, the higher your rate of return.

Certificates of deposit:

  • Are a secure way to invest 
  • Provide a higher and guaranteed interest rate than a savings or money market account
  • Have a minimum balance requirement of $500
  • Offer terms from 180 days to 60 months
  • Enable you to cash in your CD with interest earned or roll it over into another CD when the maturation date arrives
  • Do not allow for early withdrawals

Money Market Account

Would you like your funds to earn more interest than a savings account and have ready access to your funds while they are being invested? Open a money market account. You can make higher dividends based on your savings balance. The higher your savings tier, the more you’re paid.

Here’s how a money market account works:

  • Start with a minimum $5,000 deposit (For the youth money market, the minimum balance is $2,000).
  • A balance between $20,000 and $49,999 earns a higher interest rate
  • A balance of $50,000 and up earns our highest money market interest rate
  • Interest is compounded and paid monthly

* Per federal regulations, transfers or withdrawals from an Extra Credit Union savings account are limited to six per calendar month.

Online Banking

With Extra Credit Union, you can access your accounts whenever and wherever you want: at 2 a.m. after finishing a school project; at 7 a.m. as you sip your coffee before work; or just because.

Extra Credit Union Offers:

  • Banking On The Go
  • eBanking & eBill Pay
  • Other Services
  • Access Your Accounts

Get an auto loan to purchase a car

Together, we will:

  • Review your credit and work with you to get you the best, most affordable loan

Purchase a Home

Your castle awaits…

At Extra Credit Union, we know the thrill of owning your first home … and running around your new house screaming, “It’s mine! It’s mine! Ahhh, this is so cool!” We, as well as our partner Member First Mortgage, will guide you every step of the way on your exciting journey toward a new house.

If you’re already a homeowner, we’ll help you refinance to lower your payments, or to tap into your home’s equity for large purchases, such as that perfect living room couch, coffee table, and lamp you’ve had your eye on.

Home Purchasers
As home costs and interest rates are at an all-time low and as rent continues to increase, you’ll find home ownership more affordable. Come to us with good credit and a commitment to a mortgage, and you may become the next proud owner of a home.

Extra Credit Union and Member First Mortgage provide members with historically low interest rates and access to a full range of mortgage loan programs, including FHA, MSHDA, adjustable rate, and fixed rate for those who qualify. We are happy to walk you through the process of finding the best mortgage and payment plan for your needs.

Prior to looking for a home, here are the steps to take:

  • Determine your monthly budget. Remember that your housing should not be more than 30 percent of your monthly income.
  • Meet with our mortgage expert, to determine if you are qualified for a mortgage loan based on your income, assets and credit. In addition to pre-qualifying you, this process will determine the maximum purchase price you should be looking for and your total monthly payment.
  • Seek a Realtor or seller to find your dream home. When you find your dream home, go ahead and make an offer.
  • When your offer is accepted, we will collect the necessary documentation, order an appraisal, get you a full approval, and schedule a closing {this is where you get the keys to your castle}.

Refinance your Home
No one wants to pay more for their home than necessary. Many ECU members are thrilled to reduce their monthly mortgage payments through refinancing.

We will sit down with you and review your existing mortgage and interest rate to determine whether we can lower your rate, thereby reducing your monthly mortgage payment.

Acquire a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
It’s important that you have access to funds when you need them. Use the financial power of your home’s equity to get a new roof, pay for college or even plan for the “Big Day.”

If you have built equity in your home, you can access it through a Home Equity Line of Credit. We are happy to help you leverage your home to benefit other areas of your life with all the perks of this account, including:

  • Variable rate home equity line of credit competitive base rates
  • Quick access with a HELOC debit card or convenience checks at merchants, our Main Office or any CO-OP Network ATM location
  • No costly start-up fee {some restrictions may apply} or closing costs
  • Potential tax benefits {consult your tax adviser}
  • Worldwide acceptance at participating MasterCard® merchants

Applying is easy and available 24/7:

  • Apply online: There is no obligation.
  • Apply in person: Sit down with and chat with one of our lenders.
  • Apply by phone: Call (586) 276-3000. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
