We’re excited by the opportunity to include BCU credit cards in CardFit to save people in Chicagoland money on their credit cards.

Pilot With Nickels

BCU’s cards will save people in Chicagoland money

Over $2.9B in Interest & Fees Charged to cardholders in Chicagoland by big banks last year.
$330M in Annual Savings Opportunity if people in Chicagoland were using your credit cards.

Based on CFPB data, people in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Kenosha counties were charged an estimated $2.9B in interest and fees on their big bank credit cards last year. Your communities could save roughly $330M if they were revolving on your credit cards instead.

Unfortunately, the major card comparison sites like Nerdwallet, Bankrate, and CreditKarma heavily focus on rewards, ignoring the financial benefit of lower rate credit cards for those that sometimes carry a balance.

Sample comparison from Nerdwallet Heavily promotes big bank credit cards, ignoring great credit union cards like yours. Assumes everyone pays in full, making big bank rewards cards look better than they are.
