Buffalo Metropolitan Federal Credit Union is celebrating its 75th anniversary on later this month.
“In these changing times when banks and credit unions are closing, it is a privilege to be associated with such a significant organization as Buffalo Metropolitan which has been in existence for 75 years.” said BMFCU CEO Patricia Edinger.
To commemorate this milestone, the Buffalo, N.Y.-based credit union will introduce a special summer loan that will help people of all means purchase items such as swing sets, barbeque grills, patio sets, decks, hot tubs and pools. The special summer loan offers a much lower rate than someone would receive on a personal loan or credit card. In addition, reduced loan rates will be available for other loans with fun giveaways. Members taking out a new loan will spin a prize wheel that includes prizes such as a lounge chair, car wash gift certificates and $75 Visa gift cards.
BMFCU, originally Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union, opened its doors in 1937 making it the seventh oldest credit union in Erie County. It has 14,000 members and assest of $81 million.
