During the recently-completed Member Referral promotion more than 200 members referred their friends and families to join Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union. As a reward, both the referring member and new member received $20 deposited into their SMCU account. As an additional bonus, SMCU sought out the member who referred the most new members to receive a special prize. That member is Melissa A., who referred four new members during the promotional period.
Melissa has been a member of Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union for more than five years, after finding the credit union while looking at her options for auto loan lenders. At the time, SMCU had the best rate and when she came into a branch she was pleased to speak with a knowledgeable auto loan expert who could help her with the car-buying experience. Melissa recommends new members to join SMCU year round, but saw increased success during this year’s Member Referral Promotion.. “I love the friendly tellers and great products – it makes referring my friends to SMCU easy.” stated Melissa. Melissa will receive a $200 gift card to The Space Needle, and SMCU will make a $200 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, where she is a part-time volunteer.
As a financial cooperative, all of SMCU’s members benefit from new members coming in and participating in the credit union, by financing loans, using checking accounts and making deposits into one of the many savings accounts the credit union offers. It leads to lower rates, new services and fewer fees for everyone. The more members participate, the more there is to go around.
Congratulations to Melissa and thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Member Referral promotion.
