Crescent Credit Union has a nice checking account promotion. It's offering up to $150 for opening any Crescent checking account and meeting the following criteria. If you meet only 2 out of the 3 following criteria, you can still qualify for $100. A link to this promotions page is on the credit union's front page as of 3/1/2010. Below are the criteria:
- Sign up for direct deposit of your recurring net income source
- Enroll in our free bill pay service and pay 2 bills in the first 60 days
- Use a Crescent debit card to pay for 10 purchases within 60 days of account opening
Crescent Credit Union does offer a free checking account with no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements.
The credit union also has some CD specials, but the rates are not that competitive.
Membership is open to those who live or work in Plymouth, Bristol, Norfolk, or Barnstable counties in Massachusetts. A minimum balance of $25 in the savings account is required for membership. Please refer to the credit union's Join page for the full details.
Branches are located in the Massachusetts cities of Brockton, Taunton, Norwell and Cambridge.
The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68048).
