RIVERSIDE,CA (May 28, 2014) — Francisco Varela, a resident of Riverside, recently won $500 from Altura Credit Union for using his Altura Visa® Debit Card to make a purchase.  Varela and his wife, Maria, have four children. The truck driver has been a member of Altura for just over 12 years.

Varela won by participating in Altura’s “Better Ways to Win” promotion designed to highlight the convenience of using Altura’s debit card for everyday purchases.
