The following is a guest post by Austin Smith, CCCU service associate.

Earn 3% cash back just for doing three easy things? This must be a typo. If it is as easy as that, you would have to be crazy not to make the switch from your bank to Citizens Community Credit Union.

Well, it really is that easy! With Kasasa at CCCU, you'll earn 3% back on your money. All you have to do is use your debit card 12 times during the month, be enrolled in e-statements and log in through CCCU online account access at least once a month. Don't have time to sit down at a computer? Good thing we have a mobile app that allows you to check your balances, move money around in your accounts, bill pay and find the nearest location to you.

I made the switch to CCCU from another bank about a month ago and, I'll admit, I was a little hesitant at first. Before I made the jump, I did my research and read this very blog. I knew I was making the right choice when I read Shawn Johnson's post where he said, "You may be familiar with our acronym of CCCU, but sometimes I like to refer to that as Cash, Coffee and Conversation with Us. The relationships we cultivate with our members, with our community, are just as important as the transactions we run."

Knowing that I was joining a credit union that truly valued its members made it easier to break up with the financial institution I'd been with since my very first account. I thought to myself, "Why not try it out if I can get 3% on my cash and own a share of the bank just by being a member?" And, I was right! This break up has been the easiest transition I have ever had. The staff is friendly and helpful, the hours are later than what I had at my bank, and the rates are unbelievable.

Break up with your bank and join CCCU today. You won't regret it.
