This is good news for Credit Union members and for consumers in general who have limited choice at present. Credit Unions are seen to offer something different to the major banks in terms of their personal touch and are considered trustworthy.
The new Current Account has simple and transparent pricing including a low monthly fee of €4.00 which covers unlimited euro point of sale and contactless transactions, unlimited mobile and online banking and unlimited standing orders and direct debit processing and up to five ATM withdrawals per month. Full details of fees and charges are available on www.droghedacu.ie.
As well as the offer of €10 into new current accounts all of the Drogheda Credit Unions group will be opened on Friday from 4-7pm and the Drogheda Branch will have lots of goodies, treats, prizes and give all afternoon.
Come say hello to their new brand ambassador Dawn Finnegan from Drogheda who is helping launch this new service. There is a €200 voucher up for grabs for the best selfie with Dawn on the afternoon too!
Tom Kiely, CEO of Drogheda Credit Union called it a watershed moment in the Credit Union's history.
"It means Credit Union members with savings and loans will now be able to get a competitive Current Account from their trusted Credit Union, and they will no longer need to go to a bank to get this service.
"For the first time, Drogheda Credit Union will be able to provide members with a real choice for their day-to-day financial needs. This service, which will be accessible globally and digitally, will enable Drogheda Credit Union to become even more relevant to our members in the ever-increasing digital world.
"Credit Unions have been voted the 'most trusted financial institution' for many years, and just recently they became the first in the world to receive the coveted national ‘CX Award for Best Customer Experience in Ireland’ for a record-breaking five years in a row.
"This trusted position is one Drogheda Credit Union wants to build on with our current account launch. We envisage many members switching their day to day banking to the Credit Union because we are a community owned viable alternative”.
Information on the new Current Account from your Credit Union is available on www.droghedacu.ie .
