Credit union directory website reaches college students

Up to 260,000 Targeted in First Rollout

SANTA BARBARA, CA (October 2, 2013) — MoveCU, the first website to grade credit unions for consumer desirability, announced a partnership with real estate management and development company, Woodlark Companies and RentTrack, a new website that helps college students build a credit history. As a result, 20,000 students will immediately be utilizing RentTrack, and will be presented with the opportunity to join a credit union in the initial rollout. It is anticipated that 260,000 students will be in the program within the next 6 months.

Improving Credit Scores with Every On-Time Rent Payment

RentTrack is the brainchild of Matt Briggs, one of the original founders of 700Credit. With his new website, Briggs is helping Millennials build a credit history. “Most college students don’t have a credit history” says Briggs. “But now, they can build one and increase their credit score with every on-time rent payment” continued Briggs.

RentTrack is being introduced initially to Woodlark student housing properties across thirteen states. Derrick Milam, Chief Operating Officer for Woodlark says “we are thrilled to be able to offer this innovative new program.”

MoveCU Has Exclusive Advertising Rights on RentTrack

College students using the RentTrack system will see offers from credit unions who subscribe to the MoveCU website. MoveCU has exclusive advertising rights for financial services, locking out banks from reaching the college demographic on RentTrack. “The value a credit union provides is a natural fit for college students, as they typically offer free checking and better auto loan rates and student loan rates as compared to banks” says Jason Smith, co-founder of MoveCU.
