Blogs_2015In 2015, we published nearly 200 blogs on a variety of money management topics. Our goal is always to provide you with the most useful and current financial information – and to introduce you to the many budgeting tools you have available to you as a Hanscom FCU member. This past year, our three top blogs included information on chip cards, winterizing homes, and refinancing cars. ICYMI, we have this brief recap and links here for you.

We introduced information about the newly released chip cards a few times in 2015. Most recently, we offered a summary of the safety features of the chip. In her blog Chip Card Technology Brings Increased Security to Your ATM & Check Card, Hanscom FCU’s Marketing Manager Patti Conty explained how the new technology works. She also included a video to show you how the card works. Click here to read the post and see the video.

After last year’s harrowing winter weather, our readers had interest in learning more about how to prepare for this year’s chilly onslaught of cold temperatures. In his blog What are the best ways to prep your home for winter, local realtor Gary Kelley shared a list of ways homeowners can protect their residential investment. The ideas range in price from relatively inexpensive to sizeable, so there is sure to be an idea or two for you to use no matter your budget. And, as always, we welcome your ideas for keeping your home warm! Feel free to leave a comment to help other Hanscom FCU members looking for ideas.

Our third most popular blog for the year offered information on refinancing your car. Yes, you can refinance your car! Refinancing your vehicle is easy and could save you a lot of money each month over the life of your loan. Learn more in Refinance Your Auto and Save Big!
