BOISE, ID--(Marketwired - April 12, 2017) - The Boise State University Alumni Association (BSUAA) has partnered with Mountain America Credit Union to offer financial education opportunities and contribute to the BSUAA in two unique ways. Mountain America will provide onsite financial education classes on various topics to BSUAA members, graduating seniors, and at Broncos of the Last Decade (BOLD) events.
In honor of the alumni association's 50th anniversary, Mountain America is also offering a 50/50 bonus to new members who open a MyStyle Checking℠ account. New credit union members will receive a $50 bonus and Mountain America will contribute an additional $50 to BSUAA to cover one year of BSUAA dues for the member. These dues are used to fund financial scholarships and programs.
The new Boise State Alumni Association Visa ® Rewards Credit Card offered by Mountain America is another option offered to new and existing members, with a percentage of each purchase benefitting the BSUAA. The new card features two Boise State design options, plus the benefits of low rates, a generous rewards program, no balance transfer fees and no annual fee.
"Our partnership with Mountain America Credit Union is ideal because of their financial education offerings and desire to give back to our community," notes BSUAA Executive Director Lisa Gardner. "This new partnership is a great way for alumni and friends to become BSUAA members while supporting community businesses and engaging with the university."
"We think this partnership with the BSUAA is a win-win.
