Navigating the Waters of Finance


Navigating the Waters of Finance: Your FreeStar Financial Survival Guide

Boomerang Rewards Checking

Venturing into the financial ocean can sometimes feel like swimming with sharks. It's vast and filled with unknowns. But just like marine biologists understand the movements and behaviors of sharks, we at FreeStar Financial Credit Union understand the currents of personal finance. We're here to provide you with a survival guide that empowers you to navigate the financial waters confidently.

1. Watch Out for Loan Sharks

In the financial realm, predatory lenders, or "loan sharks," can be the most dangerous species. They promise easy money but come with exorbitant interest rates and harsh repayment terms. Protect yourself by identifying their tactics and choosing safer alternatives. FreeStar Financial's loans offer competitive rates and flexible terms, making them a far safer choice.

2. Chart Your Course with Us

A budget is your compass in the financial ocean. It outlines your income and expenses, steering you towards financial stability. To help you on this journey, we offer easy-to-use online banking tools that assist in tracking your spending and savings.

3. Build Your Life Raft with Our Savings Accounts

An emergency fund serves as your life raft, shielding you from unexpected financial squalls. Experts recommend having three to six months' worth of living expenses saved up. FreeStar Financial's range of savings accounts, including our high-yield Premium Savings, can help you build this crucial financial buffer.

4. Equip Yourself with Knowledge through Our Financial Education Programs

Knowledge is your protective gear in the financial waters. Understanding how investments, interest rates, and financial management work equips you with the tools to make informed decisions. At FreeStar Financial, we believe in empowering our members with this knowledge. We offer various financial education programs, like our Star Savers Kids Club, to help you and your family stay financially safe and sound.
