Put aside money for holiday gifts, vacations, large purchases, or even for major monthly expenses and enjoy the convenience of keeping track of these extra pockets of savings separate from your main Savings account.
Holiday Savings Club Account
Save year-around for your holiday shopping with a Spectrum Holiday Savings Club Account.
Automatic transfers to your account make it easy to save a little every month. When your account matures on November 10 each year, we'll mail you a check for your balance plus interest.

The MySavingsSM account for members 21 years old or younger offers a rate of 6.77% (7.00% APY)* on account balances up to $1,000, with balances above $1,000 earning our regular Savings rate.
This is a great way to get young members more excited about saving as they can watch their balance grow quickly through the power of compound interest.

Direct Deposit Benefits
How Direct Deposit Works

- You can immediately withdraw cash at any Spectrum Credit Union branch or any Spectrum or network ATM each payday.
- You can start earning dividends sooner on your deposited funds.

On your payday, your employer will provide you with a pay stub, and that same day, the amount of your paycheck, less the usual deductions, will appear on your Spectrum member statement. If you ever need to verify a deposit, simply call our 24-hour Telephone Access Service or log onto PC Access.
