Celebrate Financial Literacy Month in April at ECU4/25/2017

Month-long events, giveaways and financial learning opportunities

Financial Literacy

April is tons of fun at Extra Credit Union. It’s Financial Literacy Month—an entire month dedicated to encouraging and empowering those young and old to learn more about finances, combatting the lack of financial literacy in America! And in celebration, we have a lot of “extras”—great events, giveaways and learning opportunities for not only our members, but the entire community. Here’s what we have in store this month:

  • VISIT OUR MAIN OFFICE ON APRIL 3: We’ll have a table set up in the lobby with great information, treats and giveaways, including a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Detroit Zoo.
  • FREE COIN MACHINE ALL MONTH: That’s right, we’re waiving the maintenance fee when you use our coin machine throughout April.
  • KIDS: Open a new youth account or make a $5 or more deposit into an existing youth account and receive a $5 Menchies gift card {some restrictions apply}.
  • GET SOCIAL WITH US: We’ll be posting financial literacy facts, articles and more on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the month. Plus, there will be a “quiz” question every Friday on Facebook, giving participants a chance to win cool ECU swag. AND, we’ll be hosting a drawing on Facebook, giving one lucky winner a pair of tickets to the Detroit Zoo, so be sure to visit our page often.
  • FREE SEMINARS: Sign up to attend two informational seminars: Light refreshments will be served; plus, there will be a drawing for one $25 gift card at each seminar. Seats are limited!
