Invest in America - Thank You for Making 2010 A Success!

As yet another year comes to an end and a new one is just around the corner, the Invest in America team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation in our credit union member discount program.  We are proud to bring you a program your credit union can participate in for free and offers exclusive discounts available only to credit union members.  Invest in America is a unique program that both saves your members their hard earned money and helps your credit union:
The best news is - it's working - credit union members around the country are taking advantage of these discounts.  Through November, 333,209 vehicles have been sold through the Invest in America program to credit union members in every state -saving them an estimated $250 million.  More than 1 million members are participating in the Sprint program and have saved over $80 million on wireless services simply because they are credit union members. 

And it's getting better.  The current GM Private Offer gives an additional incentive of $1,000 to members of participating credit unions on top of the Credit Union Member Preferred Pricing discount, GM incentives, rebates and employee pricing.  This is the largest private offer in the market - you can't beat that!

Invest in America also has wonderful opportunities for your credit union to promote your credit/debit card program with the Invest in America Shop America site, which houses over 1,200 merchants that we all shop at every day.  The holiday season is upon us and through Shop America we ran specials over Thanksgiving weekend for your credit union members to save even more, and will have more specials to run for the holidays ahead.  Your credit union members can save on everything from phones, flowers and shoes, to computers, cars and more!

In 2011, Invest in America will continue to bring in partners with discounts your credit union members will find valuable and will also enable your credit union to promote its core services in conjunction with them.

Thank you again for your participation and continued support of the Invest in America program.  We all look forward to working with you to make Invest in America even more successful in driving business to your credit union and of greater value to your members.

Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Credit Union Members Save on the First Sprint Push-to-Talk Phone Powered by Android

The advanced technology of Android has merged with the push-to-talk convenience of Nextel with the Motorola i1 phone from the Sprint.  They are making a good thing even better by offering credit union members the Motorola i1 at a great price of $149* for a limited time.

Androids are the second most popular smart phone on the market, and 1 in 5 cell phones sold these days are smart phones.  More impressively, smart phone sales have nearly doubled in the last quarter, that's a 30% jump from last year.

Why does this matter?  With the holidays here, chances are a sizable portion of your members could be giving a smart phone as a gift this year.  Increase the value of membership at your credit union and let your members know about this terrific deal from Sprint.  And when your members take advantage of the Sprint program at your credit union, you'll also see the added benefit of increased incentives.  Learn more about the Motorola i1 credit union member discount at LoveMyCreditUnion.org.

*Price is after $50 mail-in rebate.  Requires eligible upgrade (or new line activation) and new two-year agreement.  Offer good until 1/8/11.
