This morning, my first article as a participating writer on Wise Bread has been published. For this article, I focused on the benefits and drawbacks of credit unions. Wise Bread has 35,000 RSS readers and 17,000 Twitter followers.
It’s difficult not to be annoyed by traditional banks. Many financial institutions just don’t have incentives to provide better and less expensive services. Although some have begun to adapt to changing needs and desires in the industry, most brick-and-mortar banks still don’t feel threatened. Because banks aren’t meeting the needs of some consumers, more people are turning to credit unions as an alternative.
