Payday Alternative Loan
The Payday Alternative Loan is a small dollar, short term loan product designed to help when money is needed right away during emergencies. You must be a current member with at least 6 months continuous direct deposit from the same source.
Members can receive a loan of up to $750.00 and pay a 15% flat fee on the amount borrowed. You have up to 90 days to pay off the loan with payments that are linked to your direct deposit.
Now available– Four month repayment! Would you like to have one month’s payment in a savings account once your loan is repaid? By opting into a four month repayment, a portion of each month’s payments will be automatically deposited into an emergency savings account. This action creates a savings for you to use once your loan is paid off.
Starting July 2015– All members who pay off their loan on time will receive a $25 refund in the form of a deposit into the Save to Win CD. With the $25 deposit into this special CD you will get one entry into our monthly local and statewide drawing and could potentially win $1000! We encourage you to deposit more on top of what is deposited for you in order to increase your chance of winning!
Debt Consolidation Loan and Credit Card
The Trust Card is a unique credit card designed specifically to get you out of high interest credit card debt as quickly as possible.
The loan officers at Express will support every step of the way. You will work together with our Loan Officer to establish a payment that’s affordable but ensures your debt is paid down rapidly. This combination of Rapid Repayment and expert advice will get you out of debt and keep you out of debt. On average ECU members have saved $6,800 in interest by consolidating their debts with this product.
Signature / Unsecured Loans
If you need money for home appliances, medical bills, computers, or if you are just a little short for this year’s vacation plans – a signature loan may be the answer. Fixed rates and monthly payments are designed to help you pay for the things that you need or want today without using potentially higher rate credit cards or store financing.
Credit Builder Loans
This loan option is a way to build a credit history and establish an emergency cash fund all in one!
The amount of money borrowed for this loan is deposited to your share savings account or CD at Express Credit Union and is ‘frozen’ until the loan is paid in full. Your borrowed money earns interest while it is held for you.
You make monthly payments on the loan and we report this to the credit reporting agencies – giving you a credit history. At the end of the loan, the cash in your account is ‘unfrozen’ and yours to use or save as you wish.
This is a great loan for you if you are a first-time borrower, trying to re-establish your credit, improve your credit score, or if you want the discipline of a forced savings plan.
Cash Secured Loans
Similar to our Credit Builder Loan we loan you money secured by cash you deposit to your share savings account or CD. The cash used as security on the loan does not have to be your own – even family or friends may help you by depositing money at Express Credit Union and agreeing to have it ‘frozen’ until you repay your loan in full.
