Kalamazoo, Mich. – Consumers Credit Union’s new Silver Lining Lending program is a unified approach to finances by consolidating loans with a competitively priced home equity product specifically designed for members approaching retirement. By reducing the number of loan payments, it enables members to save money in interest while potentially increasing cash flow – and removing some of the stress associated with retirement planning.
Consumers brought us several steps closer to realizing our retirement plan through a simple one-step loan that combined our mortgage and equity line into one loan, at a low interest rate with no closing costs. We’re saving over $7,000 and we’ll pay off our home in five years. ~ Tom and Deirdre T.
Kalamazoo, Mich. – Members can benefit from Consumers Credit Union’s competitively-priced Credit Card Balance Transfer program, available through March 31, 2012, at rates starting as low as 1.99% APR*. By transferring balances to one card, members save money in interest charges, making it easier to pay down the balance. Stress is also reduced, cash flow improved, along with a potentially better credit score.
Transferring our credit card balances to Consumers went off without a hitch. We’re saving money and have one low payment. We like the rates, but more importantly, feel like family. It’s like working with friends. For banking, this is the place to be. ~ Rick O.
