Why borrow from your Credit Union? 

A Credit Union loan is better in so many ways:

Over the last 15 years we have paid a rebate on the loans our members have taken with us.

This rebate (although varies year to year) for 2015 was 25%. That means you get 25% of the interest you have paid on your loan back into your account.

While dividends and rebates are not guaranteed and are dependent on the overall annual performance of the Credit Union, for the year ended September 2015, BCU was able to pay out a dividend of 1% on shares and a loan interest rebate of 25%.
