“I was looking for a credit union. I knew this one was in my community. I prefer credit unions to bank because there is more benefits.”

Steven F. (3rd Quarter 2019 - La Habra Heights, CA)

“I was always curious about the difference between a bank and a credit union and now I know. At AFCU, people know me by name and always give me great service. As this is an unexpected blessing, I plan on donating half to the city of La Habra.”

Natalie R. (2nd Quarter 2019 - Rowland Heights, CA)

"Big Prize Savings is a big motivator to keep saving, and with this money I actually want to keep saving! Everybody should hop on this bank to win– it's awesome!"

Cynthia S. (1st Quarter 2019 - La Habra, CA)

"This is unbelievable - I never win anything - and I happened to really need this money. The service American First Credit Union gives me is just like being a part of their family. After you've come in three or four times, they know you by name!"
