It’s hard watching a friend or loved one struggle. Most of us have the urge to help and offer a hand up when we can. But it’s harder when money is involved. We don’t always know what advice to give, and it’s not easy to be objective when it’s someone you care about.
Your credit union is a great resource that you can point them to for help. At PCCU our team understands that one size doesn’t fit all, and everyone’s story is different. When they come to us we can help them with free financial education, both online at PCCU’s Financial Resource Center as well as personalized credit reviews. We will help them assess their situation honestly and with compassion, and then help them chart a way forward, all at no obligation. That’s the credit union difference.
Don’t keep your credit union a secret? Tell them about PCCU’s people, people who care about helping you do better. People who are passionate about helping members improve their finances and their lives!
You can use our digital referral platform to send electronic referrals. Just a few quick clicks to create a referral profile and then you can send referrals through Facebook or Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, or Telegram. Or send email directly through Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook. You can even copy and text a link. Whichever platform you choose, you’ll be able to send referrals and watch their progress, send follow-up reminders, and see when you’ll receive your referral incentives.
Or if you prefer good old pen and paper ask for some New Member Referral Cards on your next visit to PCCU, or print your own at home. Just add your name to them as the “Current Member”. Then pass them on to anyone who qualifies for membership who could use a checking account that pays 3% or needs a great rate on a loan. They’ll add their name as a “New Member”, and bring in that card when they open their account and give it to the MSR who opens it. After the account is open for 30 days, we’ll deposit $25 in both your account and the new member’s account.
We are going to make quarterly drawings from all of the members who refer new members through the end of 2019. We will choose one of our referring members at random to win $500. Every new member you refer increases your odds of winning. Sign up for digital referrals or get your cards and begin referring today!
New members must be 18 years or older and deposit $25 into new share account. If the new share account is closed prior to 30 days the referral will not be paid, in addition to forfeiting the $25 share deposit for closing a new account prior to being open for 90 days. This offer may be withdrawn without prior notice, and does not apply to additional accounts or anyone who has caused PCCU an unrecovered loss.
