Gratefulness is in the air this time of year, and we here at Pittsford Federal Credit Union are reminded of how thankful we are for you, our members.
As the holiday season approaches, we are showing our gratitude by offering many of our VISA Platinum cardholders something that we simply could not offer until recently.
This fall members may receive an offer to consolidate their higher-rate credit card balances to their Pittsford FCU VISA Platinum. The offer grants a 1.99% APR* through March 15, 2022 (24+ months!) on balance transfers and convenience check purchases.
The promotional APR begins November 15, 2019, and will apply to qualifying transactions through March 15, 2020. Our hope is that this will enable members to take advantage of low rates both before and after the busy holiday shopping season. Members can also use the convenience checks included with the offer to make new purchases (not just transfer balances).
While some institutions automatically increase credit limits, we believe credit limit increases should be granted at a member’s request only. Please remember that you may ask for a credit limit increase at any time. This promotional offer is designed to help our members get ahead, financially. If a larger credit limit would help, please apply.
Have you been considering applying for our credit card? It’s easy to do! You can apply online by visiting PittsfordFCU.org; you can stop by one of our branches; or you can reach out to us by phone at (800)836-8010.
Balance transfers and convenience check purchases for qualified members will be billed at:
through March 15, 2022
Outstanding promotional balances after March 2022 will be billed at 9.49% APR.
*APR = Annual Percentage Rate
Scholarships for High School Seniors
Pittsford FCU began in a classroom, so education is in our roots and continues to be a key component of who we are. This is why we are excited to continue to present college-bound high school seniors with the opportunity to compete for scholarship awards. Not only will the Rochester Chapter of New York State Credit Unions be awarding a minimum of $10,000 in scholarships, but Pittsford FCU will also award five additional $1,000 scholarships exclusively to Pittsford FCU member-applicants. Each year, it is amazing to see all of the wonderful things that students are doing to give back to our community.
The process is simple: students wishing to be considered for a scholarship award can begin the application process on our website at PittsfordFCU.org/Scholarship. Applications are due by February 28, 2020. Best of luck to all applicants!

Summer Food Drive Recap
We are beyond excited to announce the success of our annual summer food drive. All items were donated to the Friends In Service Here (FISH) Combined Communities Food Closet, serving Honeoye Falls, Mendon, and West Bloomfield. For seven weeks, employees were provided with a new list each week of items to collect for donation.
Last year, employees donated a total of 750 items. This year we surpassed that by more than double that amount, with a total of 1,511 items! It took three SUVs, completely packed, as well as even more space in another vehicle to transport all of the goods. A huge thank you to all of the Pittsford FCU employees for donating, as well as to the FISH Combined Food Closet volunteers for their coordination. We love teaming up with wonderful partners to help our community.
