GPCU continues to offer FREE Checking, No-Fee VISA Check Card
New regulations cap the fees banks can charge merchants to process check card transactions. The big
banks have decided since they can no longer collect these large fees from merchants that they will charge
their card users instead. While some of the nation’s largest banks have decided to charge monthly check
card fees, other banks have started eliminating their free checking programs and charging fees on the
most basic of services as an alternative way to make money for their shareholders.
At Golden Plains Credit Union, we are here to serve you, our members, and to look out for your best
financial interests. We continue to offer two different types of FREE Checking accounts. Our Golden
Rewards Checking account pays 3.01% annual percentage yield when you: complete 10 VISA check card
transactions per month, log-on to Golden Plains Online one time per month and receive e-statements. You
can also earn FREE ATMs* nationwide. Both of our FREE Checking accounts have no minimum balance
required and no maintenance fees.
With our no-fee VISA check card, it’s just like paying with a credit card but the
amount of your purchase is automatically withdrawn from your checking
account. The VISA check card also works like an ATM card allowing you to
make a deposit, withdrawal, or even transfer funds from one account
to another.
At GPCU, it is our goal to offer you the best value in financial products and
services. To learn more about these products, please visit our web site
*ATM fees will be reimbursed up to $25 at the end of your monthly qualification cycle.

Chequera Gratis
GPCU todavía te ofrece una chequera
gratis, también una tarjeta de debito
sin cuotas
El gobierno ha decidido limitar las cuotas que los
bancos grandes pueden cobrar a sus clientes en
chequeras. Por esta misma razón estos bancos
grandes les están cobrando más cuotas a sus
clientes que utilizan tarjetas de debito. Mientras
algunos bancos están cobrando por chequeras,
algunos bancos han decidido cobrar por sus
servicios básicos para recuperar su dinero.
En Golden Plains Credit Union estamos aquí para
servirte, estamos aquí para ayudarte con tu interés
financiero. Tenemos dos tipos de chequeras
gratis. Nuestra chequera Golden Rewards te paga
3.01% anual cuando tu: haces 10 transacciones
usando tu tarjeta de debito VISA cada mes, usas
tu cuenta en-línea, y recibes tus estados de cuenta
por medio de internet. También recibirás cajeros
automáticos gratis en todo el país*. Ninguna de
nuestras chequeras gratis requieren balance mínimo
y ninguna de estas dos cuentas te cobraran cuotas.
Nuestra tarjeta de debito VISA funciona como una
tarjeta de crédito, pero tus fondos saldrán de tu
cuenta de cheques. Nuestra tarjeta de debito
VISA también funciona como una tarjeta de cajero
automático, te permite hacer depósitos, retiros y
hasta puedes transferir dinero de una cuenta a otra.

Golden Tip:
Save Money on Gas
Southwest Kansas
Live on Stage
Empty out your trunk. If you have a
lot of extra items that you carry with you
and don’t use regularly – golf clubs,
store purchases, winter gear – consider
removing them. One hundred extra
pounds can reduce fuel economy by 2%.
Check your owner’s manual. See what type
of gas to buy for your car. You can most likely
get by with a regular octane level of gas, rather than
premium fuels. Use the correct gradient of oil, and change
your oil according to what is recommended. This reduces wear caused by the friction of moving
engine parts and removes harmful substances. Keeping your engine in tune according to your
owner’s manual can boost gas mileage by 4%. Plus, find out what the proper inflation is for your
tires. Underinflated tires can decrease fuel economy by 6%.
Buy gas during cost saving times. Gas is typically cheaper on Wednesdays. It’s also best to buy
gas three days prior to a holiday before the price climbs.
Shop around for good prices. Search gas price web sites to see gas stations in your area
that have the best deal. Examples include, and
Use your cruise control. Gas mileage decreases at speeds above 60 mph. Use your cruise
control to avoid random accelerating and slowing down, which lessens your fuel economy.
