How to Start Establishing Credit: From One Student to Another

Greater Nevada Credit Union
Being that I’m the only person in my group of friends that works in banking, I frequently get asked financial advice and recommendations to help with any given situation. I have one friend who is a 21-year-old college student who is relatively new to the work force. He has no credit to his name and had asked me why having credit was so important in the first place.

How to Save Time and Automate Your Savings

Greater Nevada Credit Union
Time and money are precious. Thanks to enhancements in online and mobile banking, we can get back some time and even increase our savings while we’re at it.

Set up Online Banking and Mobile

Can you believe it? In 2013, only 51% of adults used online banking. And according to the Federal Reserve’s 2015 Consumer and Mobile Financial Services report, only 39% of all mobile phone owners with a bank account have used mobile banking in the past 12 months. That’s a lot of people who are probably spending more time and money than they need to.

Many of us can remember playing Snake on our Nokia phones back in the late 1990s. By 2008, there were 800 applications and games available for download in the App Store. Six years later, there were 1.4 million apps users could choose from, including apps to identify songs playing on the radio, edit videos, and more. Beyond entertainment, today’s mobile applications can also help you get organized, especially when it comes to personal finances.
