Jerri Schmidt of Option 1 Credit Union shares what the differences are between credit union and banking rates, fees, personal control and consumer advocacy.
Credit unions can be easier on your wallet, offering 28,000 surcharge-free ATMs across the United States, all listed on the Option 1 Credit Union website . They can also use our new Mobile Banking app to locate a surcharge ATM. We are affiliated with the CO-OP network.
