Like having the the different options for savings..
If there was anything lower than a 1 star like -1000 would be a more accurate rating for this bank. If you do online shopping or run a business online like I do DO NOT open an account here! Everytime you use your card twice online when you go to make a 3rd purchase you will be locked out of your account and have to call the bank EVERY 2 PURCHASES YOU MAKE!! It's like having a best friend you didn't ask for and doesn't like texting. I find that ridiculous yes they have security and any suspicious activity they will lock your account which is great BUT when you've called twice to get your account unlocked in less than 24hours and have COMFIRMED twice I just got my income tax so I doing a lot of online shopping like I had plan to when I got my return. Then your account shouldn't keep getting locked. Like that's my money I should be able to spend it when ever I want however I want and where ever I want and The bank keep their nose out of it because it's not thier hard earned money so they should not have a say so what so ever when you can and can not spend YOUR MONEY. I've never belonged to such a controlling Hank before and will be closing my account Monday to go to a more reasonable bank where I won't get locked out of my account and can shop online all day with out the worry of my account being locked.
Vote A.R.C the friendly Bank
Hope to see you tonight! The game starts at 7pm ๐Ÿ˜
How do you go about getting a new card seeing as this piece of garbage chip card fails everywher? Worse crap technology ever put into a card.

Completing a Return

Need some help figuring out your taxes? ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿซ

Here's a great article from our partners at Banzai that can help you navigate the ๐Ÿฐ rabbit hole that is adulting in tax season.

arcfederal.learnbanzai.com Your tax return tests you much like a standardized test, but it doesn't have to be as complicated as it seems.

Have you met Ashley? If not, you should take a few minutes and stop by Humble & Kind Boutique. The selection, prices, and - best of all - friendly atmosphere will keep you coming back again and again! Her dream has become a wonderful part of our revitalized downtown. We โค๏ธ seeing all the growth in our community thanks to entrepreneurs like Ashley!

ใ€ฐ๏ธDream big. Work hard. Make it happenโœจ
โ€ข
Since I announced the new logo last night, I thought I should reintroduce myself!
For those of you that are new around here, Iโ€™m Ashley & the owner of Humble & Kind Boutique. Iโ€™m a mom, a lover of music, and I was born & raised in Sinking Valley, on the outskirts of Altoona. Not only seeing, but being able to be a part of our town coming back to life is pretty incredible. This was a dream, I never thought possible. With a little push from one of my biggest influences, my Dad, who is watching over me every step of the way & the support of my husband & family.. here we are! The whole reason the shop is named what it is, is because of my Dad, too.
โ€ข
So, stop by the shop sometime & say hi! Each & every customer has a little place in my heart for making this possible. Hey & welcome!๐Ÿฅฐ

โ€œEverybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.โ€ - Martin Luther King, Jr.

We all need reminders to stay on track with our #budgets now and then. Example: I *may* have gone to the grocery store last weekend to buy milk, bread, and chicken. I *may* also have ended up with a $65 bill when I checked out...๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ
At that moment, I realized I needed to remind myself how to RESPONSIBLY shop for #groceries. So, I'm sharing my research with you!
Please share this and pass on the savings tips. Groceries are most people's 2nd highest monthly expense after rent/mortgage payments.

Two wonderful local businesses! What a great partnership, we can't wait to stop in and check out all the new goodies from Wreaths & Revival and BUNK Candles at one of our favorite downtown locations, LaVintage Decor!
Have you been downtown recently? So many great reasons to check it out folks, and now they added one more! ๐Ÿ˜

We are so excited!! LaVintage Decor โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Drum roll please...๐Ÿฅ

My tough-to-shop-for friend happens to be looking forward to a few movies that are coming out this holiday season, so imagine my excitement (see baby fist pump meme for reference) when I realized that as a member of ARC I can get discounts on movie tickets ๐ŸŽŸ, popcorn๐Ÿฟ, drinks๐Ÿฅค, and dinner๐Ÿ›! I'm talking up to 30%-50% off discounts, not like "ok, I saved $5".

Visit https://rewards.lovemycreditunion.org/ and explore the savings! Not just movies, but hotels, parks, car rentals, car repair...there's a lot. It's a great way to help boost your holiday budget!

We've all got them - the people on our lists that are IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. Well, not to brag, but I may have figured mine out this year...
And saved money in the process! I'm no super hero ๐Ÿฆนโ€โ™‚๏ธ or St. Nick ๐ŸŽ… , but I'm feeling pretty good about this one. Stay tuned, and I'll let you in on the secret for my person-who-has-everything-and-never-wants-anything this year!

We couldn't agree more! โ„๏ธ = Hibernate
Also, for those of us who are die-hard online shoppers (Does anyone else Christmas shop online at lunch because crowds make you cringe?), get the best of both worlds. Avoid crowds AND shop local with these awesome businesses!

Couplaโ€™ things here: I am freezing. I need all the candles. All the time. I feel as though itโ€™s hibernation season, but Iโ€™m always game to grab a white mocha at Greenbean Coffee House โ˜•๏ธ because yโ€™all. They have a DRIVE THRU for locally made coffee! Another hibernation option (and if youโ€™re a winter lover these may not be for you - see actual stores ๐Ÿ˜น) is Humble & Kind Boutiqueโ€™s website! You can get all your holiday clothing and accessory shopping done from your couch! Order Holiday cookies from Teraberries LLC online, shop Lightning Bug Gift Co. from your bed- so many options for us hibernated folk ๐Ÿ˜ป

Let me throw some numbers at you: 75%-80% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Translation? You NEED a budget. They aren't one-size-fits all, and they aren't rocket science, but they can keep us from falling into bad ๐Ÿ’ฒ habits. So take 2 minutes and read on!

[11/06/19]   Whether the holidays make you feel like this ๐Ÿฅณ, this ๐Ÿ˜ฑ, or this ๐Ÿคฌ, almost all of us share the expense of holiday shopping. From food/decorations for big meals and get-togethers to gifts for family, teachers, the paperboy...who ever is on your list this year - ๐Ÿ’ฒ it adds up quick!

How do you make the most of your budget during the winter months:
- Are you the "precrastinator" (it's a thing, but I don't understand it) who starts shopping in July?
- Do you have a "cash stash" for the holidays that you build up throughout the year?

Or are you more of a procrastinator:
- Do you do all your shopping at the last minute (like Dec. 23rd) to be able to use the holiday bonus from your employer?
- Do you put your purchases on credit cards and pay them off after the holidays?
- Do you have ๐Ÿšซ free time and don't even think about the holidays until you realize your work Christmas Party is tomorrow and you don't have anything to wear?
