Join NFCU in January and Get $50

Chances are you’ve seen this advertisement in my sidebar, but I wanted to highlight this offer.

I am a Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU) member, and they have been my primary bank for over 20 years.  I’ve had a wide variety of accounts and loans with them, and I have always been happy with their service and the products that they offer.  For this reason, I have slowly converted my entire family to NFCU.

If you aren’t a member, January is a great time to join because they are offering $50 bonuses for new ONLINE membership applications.  There is no need for someone to refer you to get the bonus.
