Member Story: Lauren A.

Lauren, an arts and photography teacher, has been teaching since 2004 and loves being a Member of SchoolsFirst FCU. When faced with a financial challenge due to unexpected expenses, she turned to her Credit Union for help.

After reviewing her options, she applied for a SchoolsFirst FCU Rewards Mastercard®. With her new credit card, she had access to a line of credit that could help cover her expenses. Plus, it allowed her to earn points for every dollar she spent.

After overcoming her financial challenge, Lauren was pleased that she had earned enough Rewards points to take a much-needed vacation to Miami. “It was great to have the Rewards Mastercard to take care of those expenses right when I needed it. It made my life stress-free. And I loved having options to use my points for different experiences.”

She also appreciates how her Summer Saver account helps her save for the summer with her young daughter. “Being that I’m a single mom, I have to make sure I budget throughout the year. Thankfully, I have the Summer Saver to help us get through the summer time.”


“The Credit Union helped make my challenging situation end on a positive note. They are always willing to help; I’m so grateful to be a Member.”
