Tinker FCU Gives Thanks by Giving Back to Members
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 6:45 AM

Tinker FCU

“Giving thanks” isn’t something Tinker FCU does only around the holidays. It’s something they do all year long. Through their Give Back program, Tinker FCU thanks their members by giving back thousands of dollars every month.

Tinker FCU members automatically become eligible to win Give Back rewards simply by using Tinker FCU services such as Home Branch, BillPay and direct deposit, or by making a loan or other eligible payment to Tinker FCU. Since the Give Back program started in 2008, the credit union says it has awarded more than $470,000 to more than 7,000 members.

Recently, McCloud resident Dale McGirt learned Tinker FCU was doubling his September direct deposit. Hesitant to believe his good fortune, McGirt wasn’t convinced he’d won such a large sum until seeing the check for himself.

Debra Perry was also skeptical about being a winner until she received her check at the Enid Branch. A member for over 20 years, Perry said she does all of her personal financial business at Tinker FCU.

“The people are so friendly; it’s a different type of atmosphere when you walk in the door,” she said.

The credit union says winners often tell them the reward came at the most opportune time. Edwin

Sain had his direct deposit doubled in July, just weeks after losing his home in one of the May tornados.

Jean Arbuckle received a check reimbursing her March mortgage payment, just in time to help her pay off some credit card debt. And, John Woods was surprised and excited to receive the maximum award for his May direct deposit. John Woods had his direct deposit doubled shortly after purchasing a new home and got his mortgage through Tinker FCU. His winnings went toward moving costs and his first payment.

According to the credit union, every day, three members using a MoneyPlus card for a purchase will be reimbursed up to $100. Every month, 10 active Home Branch users will win a $100 gift card; 10 active Home Branch mobile users will win a $100 gift card; 10 BillPay users will be reimbursed up to $500 for a bill paid online; one member using direct deposit will have their deposit doubled up to $2,000; one  member with a loan payment will be reimbursed up to $1,000; one member with a Tinker FCU credit card will have their payment reimbursed up to $1,000, and one member with a mortgage through the credit union will have their payment reimbursed up to $1,000.
