First Financial distributes over $2 million in loyalty rewards to members

LUTHERVILLE, MD (January 3, 2019) — For a rewarding way to thank members for a successful 2018 and to celebrate the start of 2019, First Financial Federal Credit Union deposited more than $2 million in Loyalty Rewards into its members’ accounts. First Financial awards cash rewards to members based on the products and services each member utilizes throughout the year as one of the ways the not-for-profit financial cooperative gives earnings back to its member-owners.

With the more than $2 million payout, members earned a bonus dividend of 15% on all share account dividends in 2018. In addition, members who had non-real estate loans with First Financial received a 10% interest rebate, and those members who participated in the credit union’s 5-Star Member Rewards Program were credited an additional $100 in rewards. Members with First Financial Visa credit cards also received their 1% cash rebate at year-end based on purchases made throughout 2018.

First Financial President and CEO Eric Church said, “Giving back to those who have made our year so successful is one of the most important and exciting things we do. There’s no better way to thank our members for the loyalty they have shown us throughout the year. This is a great time to be a First Financial member, and the Loyalty Rewards are just the beginning.”
