Buy Local Spend Local is a regional program that connects Credit Union members to locally-owned businesses in the community, encouraging and rewarding members to not only BUY LOCAL, but to also SPEND LOCAL by using their Credit Union’s debit or credit card for purchases.
This unique program benefits local business owners, local Credit Unions and Credit Union members.
How Does it Work
Participating local businesses are listed, by category, on a customized, turnkey site. The credit union commits to reimbursing select, random transactions when members use their debit card to patronize participating stores, restaurants, service providers, and other businesses.*
About Valley Credit Union
Since 1949, Valley Credit Union has proudly served citizens within the Big Sky Country, which now includes 30 counties across Montana and Wyoming. From the beginning, we were founded on the promise to provide accommodating, personalized service, as well as top-notch financial services to our members. Those founding principles are the same driving force that still directs our mission today.
As a not-for profit organization, we truly operate for the well being of our members. Unlike customers who just use the services of a financial institution, credit union members become part owners. Profits generated are returned to our Members in the form of higher rates on deposits and lower rates on loans.
*All Valley debit card transactions conducted with participating businesses are automatically entered to be randomly selected for an award of $25. Winners are selected and awards post in the member’s account the month after the transaction. Winners may not be notified beyond recognition on the credit union’s social media. No purchase necessary. To submit an alternative entry; print your name, credit union, address, telephone number and age on a post card or piece of paper and mail it to: Valley Credit Union Attn: Marketing Contest PO Box 20417 Billings, MT 59104.
