1st Financial Federal Credit Union Has Successful 2nd Annual Black Friday Auto Loan Special

Wentzville, Missouri — On November 23, 2012, 1st Financial Federal Credit Union hosted their 2nd Annual Black Friday auto loan sale, offering 24 qualified members auto loan rates as low as 1.89%APR for up to 60 months!  This one day sale brought the $210-million credit union nearly $460,000 in auto loans
This special, one day only offer was available for new and used vehicles as well as refinances from other institutions.  While everyday auto loan rates are exceptionally low; 1.89% APR   for up to 60 months is a below market rate for that term. Applicants began applying online as early as 12:01 AM on Black Friday and continued throughout the day, with nearly $120-thousand in loans closing in the branches.
Michelle Rosner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at 1st Financial said “One of the most fascinating parts of this has been the minimal expenses used to promote the sale.  We focused all of our efforts into pushing this offer through web, email, Facebook and YouTube”.  She went on to say, “This is maybe the only time of year in which so many consumers are diligently watching their inboxes and Facebook feeds for ways in which to save as much money as possible.  It’s unexpected to see that your financial institution has found a way to make this money saving day even that much more profitable for you”.
To help 1st Financial Federal Credit Union promote this special offer, a local high school marching band staged a flash mob in the headquarter 1st Financial branch.  A video of this can be seen at
