Extreme Banking

by Hostetler, Michael

My wife has become obsessed with the TLC show Extreme Couponing. She has started to collect coupons and monitor sales to find the best deals possible. It's amazing the length she is going to to save a few dollars on a box of cereal. However, over the past few weeks we have seen the total savings grow while we ask ourselves why we didn't start Couponing before.

People are more cost-conscious in this economic climate. How many people will drive around searching for the lowest price on gas to save a few extra dollars?

One area that you may also want to check to see where you can save money is your bank statement.

Forbes writer Liz Davidson recently asked readers if it was time to "fire their bank". Here's what she had to say about credit unions:

"Since they're non-profit, credit unions tend to pay more interest and charge less in fees than their for-profit bank counterparts. That doesn't mean they skimp on service though. Credit unions are known for their customer service and generally rate higher than banks in overall customer satisfaction."

If you're searching for a way to save money, the first stop you should make is your local Indianapolis credit union.
