Incentives for banking at a credit union

Banks aren't the only ones dishing out incentives.

Credit unions offer some juicy ones, too. For example, OMNI Community Credit Union in Battle Creek, Michigan, offers cash-back rebates on checking accounts, savings and car loans.

Other credit unions offer cash incentives. BECU has a membership program where you can get a higher interest rate on your first $500 in a checking or savings account by signing up for various services, such as online bill pay.

"Just because you don't have $100,000, we don't treat you differently," says Pietzsch.

Some credit unions also offer generous rewards programs. At Security Service Federal Credit Union in San Antonio, you can use its rewards debit and credit card program for merchandise, charitable contributions, travel or gift cards.
