President's Message: Fall 2019

Comment  October 3, 2019 by, A. Scott MacKnight, CEO/President

The shopping season will be upon us within the next couple of weeks. As we prepare to, “shop until we drop,” Triangle has some offers that might be of interest to you!

First, earn 5,000 points with our Membership Rewards VISA® credit card when you spend $1,000 within the first 90 days. Whether you choose our Rewards or Premier Advantage card, both offer a special low intro rate for 12 months with no balance transfer fee*.

Unlike many rewards credit cards, our Membership Rewards VISA does not have an annual fee. In addition to the 5,000 bonus points, our members accumulate 1.5 points for every dollar spent which can be redeemed at for travel, merchandise, and cash back rewards. In addition, their online mall conveniently lets you earn more points on purchases such as clothing, electronics, entertainment, household gear, and more, while earning more points with each purchase.

Second, with the approaching of holidays, comes a higher chance of fraud. We encourage you to be vigilant about the websites you purchase from, and protect your debit and credit cards. In this edition of MoneyTalk, we highlight 3 Simple Steps to a Safe Shopping Season. One step includes the use of our ‘TCU Cards’ App, which allows members to manage cards with on/off control, transaction history, and alert settings. For additional information on protecting yourself, please refer to the article.

On behalf of Triangle, I wish you a delightful fall and most enjoyable holiday season!

A. Scott MacKnight
