DFCU Financial Clinton Township Grand Opening!

Thank you DFCU Financial for sponsoring today’s post.


If you’ve been thinking about switching to a credit union, then now is a great time to consider your options. Credit unions are a great way to support and invest in your local community and you can be on your way to saving for that long-awaited vacation in no time.

DFCU Financial is the largest credit union in the state of Michigan and they just opened a new location in Clinton Township! They offer free checking, no ATM fees at 30,000 locations, interest rate reductions for their members and great savings programs for adults and children!

Grand Opening!

All week long until February 6th, you can go into the branch, ask a teller why DFCU Financial is better than a bank and then ask for a game piece and you could be an instant winner. They’re giving away up to $6,000! If you’re not an instant winner, your game piece goes into the drawing on Saturday, February 6th if there is still prize money to be given away.

The Cappuccino Man will also be there giving away free beverages from 10am until 2pm on the 6th.

DFCU Savings!

DFCU Financial has a great savings benefit for kids that any mom could appreciate. They offer savings accounts for kids and teenagers as well as a Wise Kids Club. The Wise Kids Club teaches kids up to 12 years the basics of savings, spending, and sharing through fun activities you can do together. Their quarterly newsletter, Nest Notes is a great resource for kids that features games and activities about the importance of money and saving.

Z has been using a piggy bank to save up, and each week we go over and count how many of each coin he has so far. Nest Notes would be a great tool for him to use on his money saving learning experience and I encourage you to check it out!

Cash Back!

DFCU Financial pays out more cash back than any financial institution in Michigan whether you’re borrowing or saving, you could be eligible. Their Cash Back benefit program pays members a loyalty reward of 0.50% on their average yearly loan and deposit balances from the previous year. Even kids’ accounts can receive up to $50 cash back. When you open a savings account for your child or teen under 17 you can earn up to $50 cash back each year until they are 18 years old if you maintain a balance of at least $100.

Take the DFCU Challenge!

I know my current bank doesn’t have some of these features and it’s really making me consider making the switch! I would love lower interest rates, no minimum balance, more cash back, and a savings program for my little one! DFCU sounds like a great option for me.

Switching banks can be scary but what if making that switch actually benefited you in ways you didn’t think your current bank could. I encourage you to take the DFCU Challenge! It’s a quick 10 question survey that compares DFCU features with your current bank. Let’s put your bank on the spot and see how they compare to DFCU Financial. What do you think?

17280 Hall Road
Clinton Township, MI 48038

If you live, work, worship, or go to school in Michigan’s lower peninsula then you’re eligible to be a DFCU Financial member.

Be sure to check out the new branch in Clinton Township!

    I already have a DFCU account :) I signed up at the Commerce Twp. one a while back. I like that I can use my ATM card at any 7/11 or any credit union in their network.

    Fun fact re: The Cappuccino Man too, I went to HS w/ his son. :)

    We don’t have this particular credit union where I live, but we do love the Credit union we do bank with. They are so different in many ways than a traditional bank and usually the differences are better for the customers. Sounds like this one has some very good benefits as well!

    We do not have this credit union around us, but I do like credit unions more than banks they seem to be more focused on customers than on money.

    This sounds like a great bank. I have a friend who lives in that area of Michigan, and she is NOT happy with her bank. I’ll have to pass this along.

    I love the idea of the Wise Kids Club! It is never too early to start teaching kids about budgeting and saving money.

    I must be honest that I don’t really know much about credit unions. My husband is a treasurer so he handles a ton of our financial decisions but I’m sure he’s heard about the benefits of credit unions such as DFCU financial.

    DFCU Financial Clinton Township sounds like an awesome credit union! I use the local credit union in my town too. Their fees are lower than the commercial banks!

    Huh. I wish my bank did somthing like this! Banking in the UK is really dull and boring. It would be awesome if they tried to make it fun.

    I love that they have a program for kids. Kids can build great money habits if they start when they’re young. It also helps spark conversations about financial responsibility. Really cool!
