Getting ready for the change in seasons has never been more important. Last winter, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that homeowners on average saw energy prices rise 27% from the year previous. This coming season doesn't look much better.

Your neighbor Mike just pulled up in his new sedan. When he was shopping, Mike had a bit of sticker shock, and not just on the new vehicles. Used car prices are higher than ever.
Fortunately, Mike remembered the MORE4LESS loan at THFCU. MORE4LESS is a unique borrowing experience that dramatically lowers your obligation by calculating your payment on only a portion of the debt. Your remaining balance is kept separate as a balloon. When you get to the end of the loan term, you have options - pay off the balloon, refinance the remaining debt, or turn in the vehicle and walk away from the final payment. If you choose to walk away, any remaining equity can be applied to your next vehicle purchase.
Don't let Mike have all the fun. Pick out your next vehicle new or used and run the numbers on our MORE4LESS calculator at thfcu.org. Click here to access our MORE4LESS calculator. Choose the year, make, and model of your next car to see the difference between a traditional loan and MORE4LESS. Then pre-approve your MORE4LESS loan with us before you shop.MSRP quoted includes applicable rebates/discounts and does not include tax, title or license. Assumes 36 month term 2.84% APR traditional loan and 3.84% APR MORE4LESS loan. Residual $14,042. MORE4LESS loans include a $295 program fee.
