Athenry Credit Union has introduced a new full-service Current Account with globally accepted Mastercard Debit Card with Contactless Payments, Standing Orders, Direct Debits, and the option of an Overdraft facility.
Members of the Credit Union can open a Current Account online or in any of their branches in Athenry, Ballygar, Kilkerrin, Kinvara, Menlough and Portumna. This is good news for Athenry 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. On Friday, February 14 Galway Bay FM will be broadcasting live from the Athenry Credit Union office. Everyone is welcome to come along and join in on the celebrations on the day.
The new Current Account has simple and transparent pricing. A low monthly fee of €4.00 applies and that covers unlimited euro point of sale and contactless transactions, unlimited mobile and online banking and unlimited standing orders and direct debit processing and ATM withdrawals up to five per month. Full details of fees and charges are available on the Athenry Credit Unions Website.
Speaking at the launch, Tony Dennis, CEO of Athenry Credit Union said this is a watershed moment in the credit unions 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 avail of this service. For the first time, Athenry Credit Union will be able to provide our members with a real choice for their day-to-day financial needs. And this service, which will be accessible globally and digitally, will enable Athenry 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 Athenry Credit Union wants to build on with this new service launch. We envisage many members switching their day to day banking to the Credit Union because we are now a community owned viable alternative”.
