"If the 80,000 signed up for Bank Transfer Day indeed move their money, they stand to save a combined $4.8 million a year as credit union members save on banking fees, states Bill Cheney, CEO of CUNA. If over 400,000 consumers made the switch, they’d stand to save about $29.8 million just by joining a credit union."
-From Justine Rivero piece in Forbes.com
Bank Transfer Day can turn into something even bigger that will bring about real change, if everyone told their friends and family about the benefits of switching to Credit Unions or small local banks. Maybe next time you want to post a funny picture of an animal, or a photo of your lunch, you can also post a link or info about this for your FB friends. It's an easy contribution that we all can make!
