Bit of March Madness

This March, we want to help your pocketbook. Our Auto Loan rates go as low as 1.99% APR** all year round! We’re looking to help you cut your current rate, or reduce your payment by refinancing your non-HCFCU vehicle loan. Let us take a look at the numbers for you and provide you with the best personal solution.

All Auto Loans closed March 2, 2020 through March 31, 2020, are entered to win some cash in our March Madness bracket, plus the chance at a 65″ Smart TV.

We’ll select a Sweet Sixteen from the new loans closed to receive cash prizes of $10-$25, and then a Final Four selection to win a night out gift package which includes HCFCU branded items and a merchant gift card, plus $50-$100 in cash prizes! A single stand-alone Champion will take home a 65″ Smart LED TV with a year of HULU or Netflix for a chill night with bae to watch the final championship game.

All auto loans (refi^ or regular) must be closed by March 31st to be entered into the drawing for the TV. 

**APR is Annual Percentage Rate. ^Refinances within 90 days of origination may be ineligible subject to title availability. Rates are based on your credit history, loan term, collateral and down payment. Certain credit criteria apply. Other restrictions may apply. Rate discounts are given based on the credit score of 680+, shorter loan terms, down payments, and relationships. Rates are subject to change without notice. Talk to a loan officer for details.

All the fine details:

Odds of winning a major or minor prize depend on the total number of entries received at the end of the contest period; entry is determined and qualified by review of account verifications, and any criteria required to enter listed above.

Pardon, Do You Have Some Spare Change?

We’re collecting donations for Harris County Animal Shelter’s #FundTheShelter challenge, would you help by donating your spare change or a $1? Beginning today, running through May 6th we will be raising funds to give to the Harris County Animal Shelter.

Harris County Animal Shelter is involved in the #FundTheShelters challenge, a friendly fundraising competition to help raise money to causes like the shelter. By giving donations directly to their donation page, http://bit.ly/FUNDHCAS, we will help increase their chances to win the grand prize of $50,000! The challenge runs from 4/9 until 5/9 and to improve their support we’re asking members for their ‘spare change’ in their accounts.

We are also collecting supplies until April 30th for the animal shelter. You can drop those items off in the lobby and receive a special gift at the front desk. We also have other ways you can help assist the shelter. Visit https://hcfcu.com/hcphes to purchase your very own “Paws For A Cause” BOOK! This book contains information about HCAS, adopting, fostering, and donating. It talks
about pet ownership, and there might be a few pics of some cute pups and sweet kittens. Proceeds benefit the HCAS for whatever they might need. Also on our site, you can find a list of the most needed items & the shelter’s Amazon wish list. You can ship the items straight to the shelter and even add a note saying, “From a loving HCFCU member”!

We appreciate our giving members that help assist the cause and enjoy anything you can donate. You can make any monetary or supply donations year-round here at the credit union, and we’ll get them to the shelter.
