At Five Star Credit Union, the member comes first. In reality, you are a member owner. That’s what makes credit unions unique. At Five Star, the checking and savings accounts are simple, always free, and earn interest. Not many financial institutions do that anymore. That’s what makes Five Star different. You will find a credit union that has your best interest in mind and will never put you in a box because every member has a different set of needs.

The Rewards Card gives members the opportunity to earn rewards to be redeemed on things such as gift cards, merchandise, or travel items. The Visa Platinum is your traditional credit card.
