Can You Believe It? Now OPEN in Santee!
Paradise Valley Federal Credit Union (PVFCU) is excited to announce that after 63 years in existence, we have reached a new milestone by opening a second branch in Santee. Conveniently located in the easily accessible Lantern Crest Senior Living complex, our Santee branch is currently open Monday through Friday from 10a to 3p. Additionally, we have an onsite, curbside ATM open 24 hours a day.
“We are extremely excited about our expansion into Santee. This branch provides additional convenience to our existing members, as well as strengthening our presence to potential new ones in East County,” noted Bud Schaffner, CEO.
Members and potential members will be served by Grace Verges, Branch Manager, and Doreen Hurtado, Financial Service Representative. Providing oversight are Marcella Hollie, Operations Manager, and Elizabeth Pairis, Lending Manager.
COVID-19 protocols are observed at this location, similar to our National City branch. According to our Branch Manager, Grace Verges, “It’s really more of a collaborative space and one we believe individuals will find more fitting for the relationship that member-owners want to have with their Credit Union.” She adds, “many members are taking the bulk of their transactions online, so we’ve designed the branch to reflect that by enhancing self-service options and showing members how they can use the PVFCU app to do almost anything they can do in a branch. If someone comes in to deposit a check, we want to show them how to make that deposit with their phone – to go beyond helping them with their original request.”
In celebration of our new location, we are featuring a New Member Bonus promotion at both branches. We are offering a $100 reward for new and existing members who open a new checking account and complete five debit card purchases within the first 60 days. Check out all the details, as well as how you can add an additional $50 to that bonus, by clicking here.
We encourage everyone to stop by our new branch and say Hello to your Santee branch team. They are ready to assist members and the community to begin “bringing financial choice and freedom” by saving more with our competitive deposit rates and even more with our great loan rates, as well as consistently low fees!
