Youth Month

Two Harbors youth discovered the Science of Saving during the month of April! Visitors to our 11th Street office participated in our coloring contest and took silly selfies in the Science Photo Booth

THFCU kids also opened new savings accounts and made deposits to existing accounts, getting into the habit of saving rather than spending their money. For every youth savings deposit during the month, young accountholders were placed into our spectacular prize drawings.

The average price of a new car is now more than $34,000. If you’re like most Americans you’re financing your vehicle purchase. And as prices go up, so does your monthly obligation. Are you prepared to spend $750 each month on loan payments?

You’re not alone, but your options aren’t very appealing. One possibility might be to extend the term of your loan. Instead of borrowing for four or five years, stretch the loan out to seven or eight years. While that may lower your payment, it extends your obligation and may cost considerably more in interest over time. A lease is another way buyers keep payments low, but leases can come with their own issues. For one, you never actually own the vehicle and won’t have equity to use for a future trade-in.

THFCU introduces a better way to make a big purchase with a low monthly payment. Introducing the MORE4LESS vehicle loan, which makes an expensive vehicle purchase far more affordable than it might initially appear.

Here’s how it works: Borrow up to the full amount of the vehicle. Your loan payment is calculated on only a portion of the debt and the remaining balance is kept separate as a balloon. When you get to the end of the loan term, you have options:

  • Pay off the balloon in full or refinance the debt
  • Turn in the vehicle and walk away from the final payment
Should you walk away, any positive equity can be applied toward the purchase of your next vehicle.

If this sounds like a lease, that’s because it is a similar concept. We’ve taken the best parts of a standard lease but throughout the term you own the vehicle, and you have the ability to build equity in your purchase. Best of all you get a vehicle with payments you can afford.

Compare our MORE4LESS loan to traditional borrowing in the table to the right, or check out the savings on hundreds of different makes and models by visiting our MORE4LESS calculator.

More4Less loan amount/payment includes $295 program fee. Rates dependent on credit history, collateral, and term.
