Choosing a Financial Institution

January 3, 2020 0 By Kody Olson


Once again it’s time for Who’s Your Money Match!! Let’s meet our first contestant, Jennifer! Well, this seems a little excessive! You’ll have to choose between three money matches! But first, why don’t you tell us about yourself. Okay… My name is Jen, I’m looking for a long-term
financial relationship and I just want to find that special connection with someone
who cares about my future. Oh, sorry. Match number one, what’s your idea of a perfect date? Well, I’d really like to get to know you since you have
a say in how your credit union is run. Maybe do some community service together or… Lame! Listen to this guy, he probably doesn’t even
know how to use the Internet. I know how to use the Internet. You’re not the only one with online banking and apps and stuff. Getting back to the question, number
two, what’s your perfect date? Mmmm… depends on what
my shareholders say, I guess. Maybe surprise you with a hidden fee or something? That sounds like a good time. Um. Number three, care to top that? Guess not… Okay! Number one, what are your hobbies? I like offering checking and savings accounts, mortgages, auto loans, credit cards, online banking… I do all that stuff, too. Good to know. So, number two,
what’s your best feature? Anytime you need an ATM, I’m there for you. Unless it’s another guy’s ATM. When you use those, I get angry. And when I get angry I make you pay some fees. But at least I have ATMs,
unlike number one over here. What?! I’ve heard the rumors. Well you heard wrong because I have ATMs, too. So do my friends all over the country. We often team up to provide better
surcharge-free ATM coverage. Whatever. Number three, my friends say I’m a
bit of a foodie. How about you? Number one, let’s say it’s the weekend
and you find yourself with a ton of profits. How do you spend them? Well, I’m not for profit so I would spend it on you. You know, do something special like
introduce a free checking account or lower the interest rate on your loans. Aww! That’s so sweet! What about you, number two? The profits? Oh, I’d spend them on myself. Well, my mind is pretty much made up,
but why do you think we should pair up? Because I’m a Bank and I am popular
and I am very rich because my customers pay me a lot and I am very rich. And I think you should choose me because I’m a
Credit Union and I want you to make smart decisions,
not just the most popular ones! Suuuuuper rich. Just saying. Yeah. Okay. Credit Union, let’s roll. Waaah, cool! Weeee! I just don’t get it. I’m a popular guy. I mean, right Pig? Hmmm.
