Taking advantage of the bank card fee backlash, Co-op Services Credit Union (www.cscu.org) in Michigan is inviting angry bank customers to come over to them and shred their bank card.
Besides the cathartic effect from the shredding, people who participate will get $105 after signing up for a Co-op Services free Checking account with direct deposit, e-statements, and a debit card.
$5 in cash will be given on the spot to people who shred their bank debit card in one of Co-op Services Credit Union's offices. The remaining $100 will be deposited into the new account as soon as the direct deposit is verified by the credit union.
Co-op Services Credit Union's Free Checking account can be opened with a minimum of $50. The account features no monthly service fee and no minimum daily balance requirement.
Co-op Services Credit Union seems to have a very wide membership requirement. Apparently anyone can join. It takes a $2 one-time membership fee to Cooperative Services, Inc., and $5.00 deposited into a regular share account to establish your membership in the credit union. You will be required to visit a Co-op Services Credit Union office in person to complete the membership application process.
Co-op Services Credit Union has eight offices throughout Metro Detroit, Michigan. Office locations can be found in Dearborn, Detroit, Livonia, Melvindale, Southfield, Southgate, Walled Lake, and Westland.
