At Vibe Credit Union, we don't answer to shareholders and their constant demand for profit. When you bank here, you automatically become an owner. Because we are nonprofit, our rates average 1 to 2% better* than the rates of banks. Often, the difference is even greater which pays off with more money in your pocket.
To illustrate what this difference can mean to you, we compare how a bank and a credit union would finance a 48-month new car loan.
|Loan Amount||Bank**||Credit Union**|
New Car Loan
|Total Interest Paid at a Bank = $3,048.89|
|Total Interest Paid at a Credit Union = $1,618.06|
|Interest Saved Over the Life of the Loan = $1,430.83|
Of course you could! The choice is obvious: Vibe is the financial institution for you. The savings, however, don't stop with car loans. Imagine how quickly the interest savings can add up when you finance your home and personal loans, and credit cards at Vibe. It could represent thousands of dollars per year.
