3 Ways Your Credit Union Can Help Fund Your Summer Vacation


Fund Your Summer VacationVacations are important for you physical and mental wellbeing, and you may be planning the perfect summer vacation. But how are you going to get around the price tag on your getaway?

Do you pull out the plastic and worry about paying your credit card bills when your vacation is over? Do you beg a loan off friends, putting your most important relationships at risk? Do you live off pasta during the weeks leading up to your vacation and use the money you saved on groceries to cover the trip costs? 

You don’t have to take extreme or irresponsible measures to fund the perfect summer vacation.

Read on for four ways Sharon Credit Union can send you packing for your dream summer getaway. 

1.) Savings or Club Account 

It’s easier to save up for a specific goal when you separate the funds that are earmarked for that goal from all your other savings. When you open up a separate Savings account or Club account at Sharon Credit Union with the sole purpose of using it to build funds for your vacation, you’ll always know exactly how much money you’ve saved up. Plus, your money will grow, helping you reach your goal sooner. 

You may have already started saving up for summer expenses in your regular savings account. Move that money into your summer savings account now so your vacation funds are in one location. 

2.) Sharon Credit Union VISA® Credit Card

With the Sharon Credit Union VISA Credit Card, members can enjoy the security, convenience and added benefits that you've come to expect from VISA. The added benefits of our VISA card, such as earning one point for every dollar spent, could help you to finance your summer vacation without having to take out a loan from the bank. 

3.) Unsecured Personal Loan

Summer vacations typically don't require big funding compared to other major choices, such as buying a house or car. If this is the case for your upcoming vacation, then consider an Unsecured Personal Loan. You'll have the funds to get started in as little as 24 hours.

Get your vacation plans off the ground by stopping by Sharon Credit Union today. We have a broad range of products that can turn your dream vacation into a reality!
