LUTHERVILLE, MD (April 16, 2019) — In just the first quarter of 2019, First Financial Federal Credit Union has already distributed over $600,000 in rewards to members through their new “Better Rewards” checking account and Visa® credit card program. This $600,000 is on top of more than $2 million in Loyalty Rewards awarded to members at the end of 2018.
First Financial checking account holders earned over $220,000 in checking dividends alone. In addition to earning dividends, these members could also receive rebates by using their Visa® debit card.
