A simpler Unitus website

We have been working to redesign our website. In early 2017 we will launch our upgraded website featuring simpler navigation, mobile responsive design, and new member-service features within a clean aesthetic which will display beautifully across desktop, tablets and smartphone.

Why “Tax Season” actually begins now

Most people consider “Tax Season” to begin in April. What many don’t realize is by investing a little time now to prepare, you can reduce your taxes owed or increase your return by securing big deductions for yourself. Before the year is over, here are some key steps you can take to maximize your personal tax refund and lower your tax withholdings.

We are excited to kick off our 2016 Holiday Drive this November! Unitus employees will once again team up with community partners to raise donations for families in need throughout the areas of Portland Metro, Salem, and Vancouver, WA. Last year was our best year ever and we are aiming to top it in 2016!

This International Credit Union Day, we are celebrating the credit union movement by making a difference in our local community. On October 20, we’ll make a donation to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, on behalf of our cardholders. Together we can make miracles for local kids!

Why open enrollment deserves your full attention

You may be using a range of smart techniques to save money: turning off the lights and lowering the thermostat while you’re away from home; making holiday gifts for family and friends instead of buying them; or picking up books, movies, and music from the library instead of purchasing them. Did you know Open Enrollment can help you save too?

A simple adjustment to boost your bonus points

You’ve been sure to keep your Platinum Rewards card top of mind when you make purchases (especially at Costco). You regularly check your rewards points balance. You have calculated how many rewards points you will need for your next big gift to yourself or your loved ones – a vacation, a home improvement project, those shoes you have been wanting. But you might still be missing one easy way to earn extra points!
