First Credit Union Celebrates 85th Anniversary with New Logo, 85 Chances to Get $85 Promotion


CHANDLER, AZ. (June 26, 2014) – First Credit Union (FCU) is marking its 85th anniversary with a new look and a promotion that gives back to its members. The Chandler-based credit union has unveiled a new, updated logo that honors its long history. Additionally, FCU is giving 85 members up to $85 each during a special summer-long promotion.

“In celebration of our 85th anniversary, we took the opportunity to refresh our tagline and introduce a new logo,” said Jay Curtis FCU President and CEO. “The previous logo, depicting the sun rising over a mesa, was introduced in the early 1980’s and seemed ready to evolve. The new logo, while fresh and modern, gives a nod to its predecessor with the retention of the sun.” FCU’s new tagline is “Trusted Solutions Since 1929.”

The 85 Chances to Get $85 promotion is open to all members. A total of 85 debit or credit card transactions will be randomly selected and the purchase amount, up to $85, will be credited back to the corresponding member’s account. Every time a member uses their eligible First Credit Union Visa® debit or credit card for purchases during the promotional period, which began May 23, 2014 and runs until September 5, 2014, is another chance to receive up to $85 to pay for their purchase. Random drawings will be held weekly during the promotion. No purchase is necessary. Complete details and Official Rules including how to participate without making a purchase is available at

“For 85 years, FCU has existed to serve the community and our members,” Curtis said. “Our growth and longevity are attributed to solid financial principles, community service and our commitment to put members first.”

First Credit Union was established by a group of U.S. Border Patrol Agents in 1929. Since then, FCU has grown to over 41,000 members and more than $415 million in assets. FCU offers membership to persons who live, work, and worship within a ten-mile radius of any First Credit Union branch. The field of membership also includes immediate family members of a current member, household members, employees or retirees of FCU select employer groups, and member referrals.
