Local credit union launches app to help save on everyday emergency expenses

Telhio launches money saving App alongside new checking products

COLUMBUS, OH (April 4, 2019) — To better serve Ohio with the most up-to-date approach to financial services, Telhio Credit Union has unveiled a new mobile app to help members with everyday expenses.

Telhio’s new checking account program has two options for checking accounts that give access to roadside assistance, cell phone protection coverage, health and hotel savings, and discounts at retailers to save members money on shopping and travel, all built into one app. The app is called Tap by Telhio.  When a customer opens one of the new accounts, they will be offered a code to access the discounts via Tap.  In addition to the discount app, one of the new accounts offers interest for checking accounts with higher balances.

“These value added checking services were created to help people live an easier life, and bundle some of the small expenses that add up for them on a monthly basis.  With the roadside assistance coverage alone, members with the app can save on annual membership fees for services like these.” said Leslie Bumgarner, CEO of Telhio Credit Union. “We want to give our members and Ohio the best financial options possible added perks are both beneficial and rewarding.”
