June Frugal Checklist

  1. Create a summer bucketlist
    You’ve been maintaining your budget all year, go you! Summer plans might bring your progress to a grinding halt. Take some time to gather your bearing and make a summer bucket list. Plan a staycation and take advantage of all the free things available in the area like concerts in the park and the St. Louis Zoo and Science Center.
  1. Utilize CO-OP on your vacation
    Wherever you’re heading for vacation this summer, you’ll be able to connect to your accounts! Credit unions that are connected by CO-OP are linked with other credit unions nationwide where you can use nearly 30,000 surcharge-free CO-OP ATMs and more than 5,000 CO-OP Shared Branch locations to make in-person transactions, just like at your home branch. Download the app to find one for your next getaway.
  1. Take advantage of credit card benefits
    It’s a no-brainer that you’re going to need gas.  So why not get something out of it. If you’re able to pay your credit card bill on time every month, a credit card that offers rewards at the pump is a good tool to help you save. And those points earned could potentially fund your next vacation. >> Read 5 Scenarios to use credit over debit
