Arapahoe Credit Union Account Center Holiday savings accounts are unusual because they strongly encourage you to not use the funds until they become available in October. How it works is we give you an open deposit account for use throughout the year. You can put money in at any time or have it automatically distributed if you use direct deposit. However, you cannot draw from those funds like you can other accounts. For up to twelve months you build on this savings. Then, on October 1st the entire account gets transferred over to your primary saving for you to use however you want.

Account Savings ToolsArapahoe Credit Union’s savings accounts come with everything you need to effectively manage your finances. Along with the safety and security of one of Colorado’s top rated institutions, we have a series of tools meant to make your life easier.

Free Direct Deposit

Simplified money management starts here. When you have your check automatically deposited into the credit union, it will be the first thing processed the business day we receive it. You don’t have to mess with bringing a check in, deposit holds or any other inconveniences.

Free Debit Cards*

When combined with a checking account, we are able to offer a completely free debit card that will access almost 30,000 CO-OP ATMs nationwide. These cards are secured against fraud and give you safe account access.

Free Bill Pay*

Our online bill pay provider is the largest in the nation and will help you pay quickly and on time. Automate or authorize payments as you go, it is up to you. What you can count on is simplified bills and safer transactions (your checking account number is never out there for criminals to pick up). Registering is easy.

Account Alerts

Now, you can have your account let you know when something is happening. Our online banking will send you either text or email alerts whenever your selected event happens. You can know immediately if your deposit is in or if your mortgage is paid. You can also set it up to let you know when you are running low on funds or if something unusual is happening. If you need help, try this.

Arapahoe Credit Union Finance Tools Free Mobile Banking

Mobile banking is another layer of convenience ready to bring your account management into the 21st century. You can do most of your basic banking, including most transfers, directly from your mobile device. We offer both text based and smart phone platforms so that Mobile Banking is within reach of almost everyone. We don’t charge for this service, but your cell provider might.

Tricks to Get Ahead

One of the most powerful tricks we’ve seen to help people get ahead is “pay yourself first” and it is one that we can easily help you get started with. For example, when you have a direct deposit coming to your account here, we can automatically distribute your money into any number of custom accounts that you like. Instead of having to manually move anything around, we do it for you. You would be surprised how much psychological value something like this has. Another option is to integrate $wipe and $ave to help you build one of your accounts— It makes balancing your checking easy as well.

Our Savings Accounts...
