SMCU Anywhere

Roswell, New Mexico, as many know, is home to evidence of an advanced civilization. Some claim to know nothing about it, but there it is, right in the parking lot of Plateau Wireless on North Main Street. You will find it just down the street from the Sonic Drive-In and Cici’s Pizza. It’s a Co-op network ATM, and you can use it 24 hours a day to withdraw cash from your SMCU accounts without a fee.

The Sipping Streams Tea Company in Fairbanks, Alaska sells more than a dozen varieties of tea and offers complimentary wi-fi. You can log into SMCU’s Online Banking to pay your phone bill while lounging and sipping from your cup of Imperial Mao Feng Tea.

Whether you live in Arlington, Washington or Arlington, Texas, you can find a 7-Eleven Vcom®ATM where you can deposit checks to your SMCU checking account. You can use your SMCU Visa®or debit card to buy dinner at the Space Needle in Seattle or the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

In the not-so-old days, you had to get in your car, hop on your bike or put on your shoes and physically go to the credit union to transact business on your account. That wasn’t so bad, since SMCU branch reps are really nice, smart people who love to help. Still, it wasn’t always convenient to take time from your day to make that trek.

Nowadays, it’s easy to use SMCU no matter where you are. Whether you are vacationing halfway around the world or moving to a different city, your SMCU accounts travel with you. You can do virtually all of your credit union business without ever having to set foot in a branch. SMCU is available by phone, on the internet, through ATMs and, when you use your Visa® or debit card, in the gift shop where you’ll buy your soon-to-be-favorite souvenir snow globe.

You can also leverage the power of shared branching, which allows you to go to a participating credit union anywhere in the U.S. and do business on your account just as you could standing in the SMCU branch in downtown Seattle.

In case you are wondering, the SMCU branch reps are still here, smiling and helpful. Whenever you are ever in Seattle, they would love to have you stop by and say, “Hi.”
