No resource is off limits for thieves. Today’s scam artists, who care more about fattening their pockets than the well-being of others, have learned to utilize direct mail, phone lines, email and social media to make money-scamming operations more sophisticated and believable. The good news is that with a bit of vigilance and discretion, you can effectively thwart any attempts to snag your personal data and steal your money.

As a credit union, we take financial education seriously. This is why Arsenal has spent the last 10 years visiting St. Louis metro-area schools in a mission to educate students of all ages about the importance of financial responsibility. Thanks in part to programs such as ours, Missouri was recently ranked as just one of five states to receive top honors from the Center for Financial Literacy in Vermont, one of the premier financial education institutions in the country. And it doesn’t have to stop there! The financial management tools offered through our various customizable activities and presentations invoke concepts that students will benefit from for the rest of their lives. If you are interested in having Arsenal Credit Union come to your school or your child’s school, call Jenny Remes at 314.919.1006 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Store credit cards are seldom a good deal: With offers of an additional 10 percent off your purchase or free merchandise, it's tempting to apply for credit cards from your favorite retail stores. What they don’t tell you before you sign up is that failing to pay the bill in full at the end of each month may result in you paying much more than you originally would have saved. This is due to the inflated interest rates on retail cards that average about 10 percentage points higher than an Arsenal Credit Union Visa credit card. Opening multiple store credit cards around the same time can also negatively impact your credit score and lower your chances of receiving other loans at favorable rates. Instead, the best policy is to have one major credit card – like one offered by Arsenal – that you can trust and use for all items you wish to charge.
So maybe setting out on the town to embark on Gray Thursday savings after stuffing yourself with bountiful heaps of Thanksgiving fixin’s isn’t your favorite holiday tradition.
