[06/27/13] MASTERING YOUR CREDIT CARD DEBT *Take Inventory-How many credit cards do you have, and what are their balances? *Evaluate the cost-How much is the annual fee and what rate are you paying? Are cash advances at the same rate? *Get one card-Look for one card with no annual fee that has the same rate on purchases and cash advances. *Payments-Try to pay more than the minimum payment. Minimum payments often pay the interest without making much difference to the principal balance. *Don't exceed the limit-Hefty fees apply if you do. *Pay on time-Late payments cause late fees to apply. Late payments and exceeding your credit limit is reported to credit bureau. This will lower your credit score greatly. *Monitor your purchases or charges regularly. You only have a short time to dispute any items that are not yours. If not reported quickly, these charges become your debt to pay, so be dilligent. PENNFORMER VISA CREDIT CARD 8.95%(PURCHASES & CASH ADVANCES) NO ANNUAL FEE.
[06/27/13] CHECKING ACCOUNT FEES TOO HIGH? *When comparing checking accounts, it's important to consider fees. Just because a financial institute offers everything, doesn't mean that you need it or should pay for it in fees. Some important tips for everyone when choosing a checking account. *Minimum balance fee. Some banks charge a fee if your balance drops below a certain level. This could be as high as $15 or more in some cases. At Pennformer Community FCU there is no minimal balance, therefore no fee. *Some banks charge for per item checks, such as you can only write 10 checks per month, then you are charged an amount per check that you write over that limit. You can write as many checks as you like with no fee at Pennformer Community FCU. * Some banks charge a monthly service fee of as high as $12 per month just to have your account there. There is no monthly service fee at Pennformer Community FCU. *Debit cards and Home Banking available at Pennformer Community FCU. *Free Atm service thru Allpoint and Star Network at Pennformer Community FCU. *Take inventory of all fees and compare. You might be surprised to find out how much money you can save by doing a little homework. It is your money, spend it the way you want.
[05/01/13] REASONS TO TAKE A HOME EQUITY LOAN NOW * Income tax deduction- Most of the time, you can deduct the interest paid on a home equity loan if you itemize on your income taxes. * College- Not only will you be educating someone and obtaining an income tax break, again, your home equity might be hefty enough to fund this substantial expense. * Repayment-If you are looking for a payment that will stay the same over the life of the loan, this is how a fixed home equity loan is structured. You can budget the same payment amount each month. *Interest rates- You can usually obtain lower interest rates with a home equity loan than you can with credit cards or personal loans, especially at your credit union. *Consolidate BIlls- If you want to consolidate high interest credit card or other bills and take advantage of a tac break, a home equity loan can do that for you. *Pleasure- If it is a dream vacation or a larger puchase you always wanted but felt it has always been out of reach because of cost, a home equity loan can help fund the trip of a lifetime. *Home Improvement- If you obtain a home equity loan to remodel a kitchen or add a room, it can possibly increase the value of your home. *Easier to obtain- Because your home is collateral for a loan, it may be easier to obtain than a personal loan or other types of loans. PENNFORMER COMMUNITY FCU HOME EQUITY RATES Minimum $10,000-Maximum 85% of the appraised value of home(minus liens, mortgages and/or home equity loans), not to exceed $100,000. 5 YEARS OR LESS 2.99%APR 5 to 10 YEARS 4.15APR 10 to 15 YEARS 4.25%APR Over 15 YEARS, Maximum 20 years 4.99%APR $300.00 Non-refundable Application fee (Fee will be waived if applicant signs three year waiver form)
[05/01/13] Negotiating Tips for Buying a New Vehicle! Thinking of buying a new vehicle, but dread the process. The experience can confuse and wear down car buyers. It requires research, commitment, patience and the right attitude to get the lowest price for the vehicle you want. Here are some tips to help get the best car price and the experience a little bit less intimidating. * Don't try to negotiate when the dealership is busy, like on Saturdays. * Shop around and play dealers off of one another. * Ask the dealer to show you the actual invoice. Not only do you see the pricing but it lets you know how long the vehicle has been at the dealership. The longer it has been there, the more eager they are to get rid of it. the invoice price and the sticker price define the low and high end of the pricing scale. You want to wind up somewhere in between. * Check out Manufacturers cash incentives for specific models. Check on-line before you shop to find out the incentives. * Do your research. Websites like Edmunds.com, TrueCar.com, KBB.com, NADA.com, not only provide the MSRP and dealer invoice price for vehicles but will also show you a final transaction price of somewhere between dealer's invoice and MSRP. * Line up your financing before going to dealership so you are a Cash Customer and can avoid any dealer's attempt to negotiate the monthly payment. Contact your Credit Union for their current rates. * Be prepared to walk out if you don't get the price you want. OUR NEW VEHICLE LOAN RATES: 2.49% APR for 60 months!!! 2.99% APR for 72 months!!!
