Navy Federal Offering $50 Joining Bonus

Hand holding cash.

If you have friends and family who haven’t yet joined Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU), now is a great time to remind them of the benefits of a great credit union.  For a limited time, NFCU is offering $50 bonuses to both the new member and the person who referred them.

You’re Probably Eligible For Membership

In recent years, NFCU has expanded its membership eligibility to include a wide variety of Department of Defense-related folks:

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) UNIFORMED PERSONNEL
Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force Active Duty, retirees, and annuitants
UNITED STATES COAST GUARD PERSONNEL
Active Duty, reservists, civilian employees, retirees, and annuitants
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE RESERVISTS
including Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force retirees and annuitants
ARMY AND AIR NATIONAL GUARD PERSONNEL
including civilian employees, retirees, and annuitants
DOD OFFICER CANDIDATE PROGRAMS
Midshipmen and cadets at the United States Naval Academy. United States Military Academy. United States Air Force Academy. United States Coast Guard Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy, and other officer programs.
U.S. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES ASSIGNED TO DOD INSTALLATIONS
including Coast Guard
DOD CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES
including retirees and annuitants
DOD CONTRACTORS ASSIGNED TO U.S. GOVERNMENT INSTALLATIONS
FAMILY MEMBERS
including grandparents, parents, spouses, siblings, grandchildren, children (including adopted and stepchildren), and household members. Once your family members have joined, their family members are also eligible for membership.
As you can see, this is a pretty wide net.  My entire family has moved much of their banking to NFCU, especially for mortgage loans and credit cards.  We’re all very happy!
If you don’t think you know someone who is a Navy Federal member, ask around.  You might be surprised, and you could get a $50 bonus for each of you.
