GOBankingRates Advocates Mission Federal Credit Union as Safe Haven from Rising Bank Fees

GOBankingRates recognizes Mission Federal Credit Union, a local San Diego credit union, for rewarding customers, as well as their family and friends, with a $40 referral incentive

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The average checking account has 30 fees1. Even so, GOBankingRates finds Mission Federal Credit Union has chosen to go against the grain by paying its customers for referrals, rather than demanding excessive charges. 

Mission Fed customers have the opportunity to earn $40 – increased from the $25 in previous referral campaigns – when they refer a friend or family member to join. The promotion is presently running and ends March 31, 2014; both existing customers and new friends or family who open a Mission Fed checking account are eligible to earn the $40, which is deposited directly into the account. 

"Rising fees are a growing problem for bank customers, especially in this low interest rate environment," said Casey Bond, of www.GOBankingRates.com. "It's rare to find an institution that actually pays account holders – clearly, Mission Fed is taking into account the needs and preferences of its customers."

Presently, Mission Federal Credit Union offers several Checking Account options. Features include:

  • No monthly fees with eStatements
  • Initial deposits as low as $25
  • Earned dividends tiered based on balance
  • Debit cards with NO monthly usage fees
  • More than 30,000 fee-free ATMs
  • 24/7 access via MissionLink Online Banking
  • Mobile Banking Apps with Mobile Deposit

"We're focused on rewarding our customers and providing products and services that simplify their lives while adding value," said Rob Miller, Chief Operations Officer, Mission Federal Credit Union. "The decision to increase Refer a Friend payout from $25 to $40 is a result of our desire to attract more customers and thank them for sharing the best kind of referrals – friends and family."

"Our customers do a fantastic job of sharing the story of their Mission Fed experience, so we wanted to show them some extra gratitude through the new Refer a Friend campaign," said Neville Billimoria, SVP Marketing and Membership, Mission Federal Credit Union.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
