Michelle Hale
Greater Nevada Credit Union
Have you ever passed a title loan center wondering how it all worked and if it was a good idea?  Suppose you own your vehicle free and clear and could use some extra money.  Maybe you have a credit card bill at 22.9% with no end in sight.  You could use your vehicle as collateral (based on the value of your vehicle) to pay that bill by obtaining a car title loan.

Are there plenty of ATMs nearby? Often times, big banks come to mind first, but what most people don’t realize is that banking with a credit union has just as much value or even more than a bank.
