Invest in America is an exciting way for credit unions to lend their members a hand during these tough times in two different ways. First, all eligible current and new credit union members can get a great discount on a new GM or Chrysler vehicle. Second, when they finance their new vehicles through their credit union, they get extra savings thanks to our low loan rates. While the individual automakers’ offers vary, the process to obtain a discount is similar. All marketing for Invest in America will send members to lovemycreditunion.org. Once there, they choose their offer and can then click on a direct link to the preferred automaker. The site will walk members through what they need to do to receive their discount. This program is also designed to drive new membership and vehicle loan volume for your credit union. Messaging consistently includes how your members will save even more money if they obtain financing through their credit union.
To make a great program even better, we’ve already created comprehensive marketing campaigns to support whichever discount program your credit union selects. You may pick one or all, it’s up to you. Once you’ve chosen, you’ll have carefully crafted and branded marketing collateral to promote the offer. Whatever your credit union decides and whichever way you look at this program, it’s a win-win situation for members, credit unions and the automakers alike.
There is no cost for credit unions to participate in the “Invest in America” campaign. Members simply provide proof to the dealership that they have received their financing through a credit union in order to take advantage of the incentives. Additionally, credit unions can visit www.lovemycreditunion.org to learn more about the program and gain access to the marketing materials. Previous conference calls have also been posted to the website in case you were unable to attend.
The John M. Floyd & Associates Overdraft Privilege program can be an invaluable addition to your credit union's line of products and services. Without fee increases or major operational costs, this powerful program strengthens member satisfaction, raises market share and increases your credit union's fee income.
Overdraft privilege is a service that can help members who overdraw their transaction accounts. Overdraft privilege is subject to preset dollar limits and certain other conditions. Your credit union continues to collect the customary fee for each overdraft item, while protecting your members from the credit and debit bureau problems, merchant fees, and potential embarrassment associated with returned checks and ACH items. Importantly, by providing a safety net for your members, your credit union may also save them from having to seek extra funds from friends, family, or not so benign sources.
The John M. Floyd & Associates Overdraft Privilege program provides feature flexibility together with back office control. Overdraft dollar limits are preset and can range from two to four levels. Overdraft privilege offers your members overdraft coverage without a binding obligation between the credit union and the member. Your organization retains all rights and privileges to pay or return checks.
Comprehensive services include: complete analysis of the demand deposit member base to establish and recommend program guidelines including the preset overdraft privilege limits, development of all required disclosures and necessary procedural changes in order to comply with applicable regulations, review of NSF and overdraft processing systems, technology utilization, operational procedures and management reporting systems, analysis of demand deposit product offerings and recommendation of necessary modifications, all necessary marketing and advertising support programs to current and prospective members, on-site employee training designed to both educate and obtain critical employee buy-in to the program, no-cost, easy-to-use, PRIVILEGE MANAGER CRM™ software that automates essential tasks and functions smoothly with your core application system.
