CULookup.com on KGO NEWSTALK Radio in San Francisco

October 20, 2011

Traffic to CULookup.com, NAFCU’s credit union locator site, continues to see growth in traffic, with a 350 percent increase in the two weeks since Bank of America and other banking giants announced plans to begin assessing debit-card and checking fees.

Patty Briotta, NAFCU’s public relations manager, discussed the trend in an interview Thursday with San Francisco’s KGO Radio Newstalk team. Credit unions have always been “a good choice” for consumers, she said. “And I think as the big banks have announced their fees, credit unions look even better.”
