Lowest Auto Loan Rates
EVER!
In
February,
our
OMSEFCU
Board
of
Directors voted to adopt
3.24% APR* as the Credit
Union’s base rate for new
and used auto loans. Our
rates have never been
lower! With rates as
low as 3.24% APR* now
available, a pre-approved
OMSEFCU vehicle loan
gives you a big advantage
when you shop for your
next new or used vehicle.
We’ll Still Meet or Beat
Other Lenders’ Offers!
Has another lender offered you low-rate financing? Bring
us the paperwork and give OMSEFCU a chance to meet or
beat the offer! We’ll do everything in our power to meet or
even beat it!
If you are already making car payments to another lender,
you can apply to refinance your loan with OMSEFCU and
reduce your rate and payments, perhaps dramatically!
Current OMSEFCU loans are not eligible. Rates are also
available to those who have a vehicle that is either paid off
or has sufficient equity to pay off and close higher-rate loans
or credit cards. It’s a great way to save money!
Call our Loan Team at (909) 983-1959, option 2, or
e-mail [email protected]
Apply on-line at www.omsefcu.org.
*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rates quoted here are the lowest available
for our best borrowers; however, reduced rates are available to all qualifying
borrowers on approval of credit.
Looking Forward to No More
Mortgage Payments?
If you are nearing retirement and want an honest,
straightforward, short-term mortgage in order to pay off
your home sooner and get rid of your mortgage payments
altogether, call us. With mortgage rates at historic lows,
you can apply for a 15-year or even a 10-year mortgage at

OMSEFCU VISA Rated Among
Best in Nation
Nationwide consumer-advocate organizations are
fighting the unfair, consumer-gouging practices of many
of the nation’s major credit card issuers. Credit Card
Connection (www.creditcardconnection.org) is your link
to the most fair and ethical credit card programs in the
United States. OMSEFCU’s VISA program has earned
Credit Card Connection’s highest, five-star rating and
its Seal of Approval for fair and ethical practices. We
are proud to be among the nation’s top-rated credit card
issuers.
OMSEFCU Honored on “Dean’s List”
Many of the big credit card companies landed on
Credit Card Connection’s “Detention List of Lenders to
Avoid” because of their extremely high, changeable rates,
outrageous fees and unfair practices. In spite of recent
consumer-protection legislation, they are finding ways
around it.
~IMPORTANT~
FEE SCHEDULE CHANGES
Please see the enclosed new Fee Schedule. It goes
into effect May 16, 2011, and will impact our Share
Draft Overdraft and NSF Fees.
