Chandra with her 2015 Dodge Journey.

Longtime member Chandra Wilson has been with USAgencies Credit Union for twenty years. She first became a member in April of 1996–the same year as the Macarena, Tickle Me Elmo and the start of Oprah’s Book Club. Mariah Carey & Celine Dion topped the charts and Independence Day was #1 in the box office. In other words… it was a long time ago.

In Chandra’s history with USACU, she’s gone to us for “three or four” car loans… and she thought of us for her most recent auto loan. We asked her to share her car buying experience with us and she happily obliged:

Q. How was the loan application process for you?
A. The loan process is stress-free! That’s why I always use the CU. The loan team has always been supportive. They always are willing to work with me, and do what they can to accommodate my wishes!

Q. What made you decide to go with an Enterprise Car Sales vehicle?
A. I chose to go with Enterprise for a couple of reasons. 1. I felt the company would have reliable cars in excellent condition, and 2. I like to partner with partners who partner with the CU. Justin and the Sales Manager were a pleasure to work with.

Q. What’s your favorite thing about your new car?
A. I love the space, and that is it fitting to my lifestyle! I’m a soccer mom, and need extra seating, and space for equipment! And it has several “secret compartments”!!

Q. How do you feel knowing that we’ll be donating $100 to the Oregon Food Bank by purchasing an Enterprise Car Sales vehicle during our Drive Away Hunger Car Sale?
A. I feel happy, and blessed to be part of an important cause!

 

Thanks for sharing your experience, Chandra! We’re so happy we could help you find a great deal on a car and give back to the community, all in one.

If you have questions about Enterprise, or our Car Sale, give us a call (503-275-0300), shoot us an email, or just stop by. We’d love to talk!

USAgencies Credit Union Wins Awards at Regional Association Conference

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Northwest Credit Union Association presented USAgencies Credit Union with two prestigious awards at its annual Amplify Convention Awards Banquet last night.

USAgencies Credit Union won a Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award for the work its staff has done to support their local community. Dora Maxwell was an early leader of the credit union movement. This award is given to credit unions that significantly improve the lives of members and non-members through community outreach. USAgencies’ staff members have given 100 volunteer hours serving more than 1,400 people and raising $10,500 to support various causes. In particular, the credit union used its social media presence and worked with its business partners to raise $3,000 to purchase books for young children.

The credit union also received a Desjardins Adult Financial Education award for its Feast and Forum program, in which staff members visit businesses to provide financial fitness programming during Financial Planning Month and Financial Literacy Month. The award is named after Alphonse Desjardins, who founded the first credit unions in the United States and Canada and who pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school banks.

So, buy an Enterprise Car, finance it with USAgencies, and Credit Unions for Kids gets $100. Pretty neat, eh?

Here’s a flier from Enterprise with all the details. We encourage you to check it out!
