Your Ac­cess Plus Debit Card is your card for con­ve­nient ser­vice

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

AS THE Christ­mas sea­son ap­proaches and mer­chants be­gin to roll out their stock, many con­sumers, de­spite be­ing chal­lenged by the cur­rent fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion – with in­creases in the cost of goods and ser­vices – are also gear­ing up to shop. For some, it is the com­pul­sive thing they do at Christ­mas; for oth­ers, it’s hav­ing a lot of money such as salary and bonus at one time; and for oth­ers; it is a need to treat them­selves, fam­ily, rel­a­tives and friends at this ‘giv­ing’ sea­son.

What­ever is the rea­son, con­sumers need to take heed. Hard-earned money should not be spent on a whim to feel in the ‘Christ­mas spirit’. re­ally need, and how much each item will cost be­fore you shop.

Credit union mem­bers are aware of the prin­ci­ple of thrift on which the move­ment is built and are be­ing en­cour­aged to con­tinue to ex­er­cise this pru­dence through­out the Christ­mas sea­son.

Your credit union can help you to save and in­vest your money and gain the ben­e­fits of do­ing so.

Spend wisely this Christ­mas
