Member Matters with Marshall


Dear credit union members: 

This has been an eventful spring as we dedicated a new branch in Lawrenceville, celebrated the renovation of our Richmond County Board of Education branch, and reached $500 million in assets. This summer promises to be no different as we prepare to launch several new products and services, the first of which is our C.A.R.E.S. VISA® Debit Card!

From now on, it is our intention to allocate a nickel per transaction on purchases made with your Peach State VISA® Debit Card to the non-profits, school systems, and the arts in the communities within our footprint.1 We’ve been donating substantial monies to our communities for years. Now we’re putting it on a self-sustaining path by using our VISA® Debit Card program as a way to give back to our local communities.

Now you can have a meaningful impact in your community by choosing to use your Peach State VISA® Debit Card instead of cash, checks or other cards. You can get a sneak peak of the new C.A.R.E.S card design on page 2.

I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to acknowledge the closing of our vehicle buying service, MEMBERS AutoChoiceTM (MAC). The owners at MAC decided to close their business in May after providing almost 17 years of service to Peach State members. We wish the MAC team well in the future and are thankful for their partnership and friendship over the years.

Don’t worry – even though MAC is gone, we are pleased to present our members with two alternatives to finding vehicles, depending on your preference of having someone shop for you or doing it yourself. Be sure to check out page 3 for more details.

We hope the rest of your summer is a relaxing one!

Marshall Boutwell

1 $0.05 per transaction of Peach State Federal Credit Union’s merchant interchange income from our VISA® Debit Card program is used to benefit the communities we serve. Peach State will determine where/how funds are disbursed. This does not affect members’ accounts nor will any member information be disclosed. You will not incur any additional fees or charges from this program. Merchant interchange income is derived from fees that a merchant pays to accept credit/debit card payments. The C.A.R.E.S program may or may not apply to ATM transactions, certain commercial transactions, or other transactions not processed by VISA®.
