Message From the CEO
It is hard to believe we are already half way through 2018. During the past six months, we have continued to develop new products to help our members.
We are excited to announce two of the new products available at Mutual Savings – the Silver Elite Suite and the MyCardRules App. Our new Silver Elite product is brand new and is exclusive to Mutual Savings Credit Union. These new savings products are designed to save, earn, and protect our members’ investments. The MyCardRules App is designed to allow members to set a variety of controls and alerts for their debit and/or credit cards. Stay tuned for more information on these new products in the newsletter.
Mutual Savings was proud to be a sponsor for the Muscular Dystrophy Association again this year. MSCU staff and volunteers participated in the MDA Muscle Walk in April and raised funds in May through our annual “pin-up” campaign to send children to MDA Summer Camp. I am proud to say that Mutual Savings was able to raise over $6,000 this year to help send children to camp.
This has been a positive year thus far. I look forward to the next six months and hope that you’ll continue to think of Mutual Savings Credit Union first for your financial needs.

We Finance Fun!
Summer is a busy time of year. With vacations, graduations, and the possible need for a new heating and air unit, we know finances can be tight. If you find yourself in need of extra funds, remember, Mutual Savings Credit Union finances fun!
Mutual Savings offers great loan rates and the application process is quick and easy. Members can apply for financing through the Mutual Savings website or in one of our nine branch locations.
Along with great loan rates, Mutual Savings offers our Visa® Blue credit card. The new Visa® Blue is a safe way to pay for flights, food and souvenirs while on vacation. You can also set it up on our new MyCardRules app to monitor your spending or turn the card off if it gets lost or stolen.
So relax and enjoy your vacation without financial worry. Contact a member service representative to see which option is the best for you.
We are confident we have an option that will help you finance your summer fun.
