With some credit unions, when you earn a certain number of points -- usually by using more services or buying more products -- you can get a lower interest rate on a car loan or mortgage loan.

By accessing a website that's linked to an online banking site, credit union members can explore a variety of options for earning targeted rewards such as a vacation trip or a digital camera. Members can also convert points into charitable donations.
