Sweeten Up Your Holiday!
Sweeten the holidays with extra cash in your pocket! Look for 5.5% APR* SPC VISA convenience checks to arrive in your mailbox mid October and put some ease into your holiday spending. Use the checks to make purchases anywhere personal checks are accepted, or to pay off higher interest rate credit cards. You’ll save no matter how you use them with a low 5.5% APR* for the life of the balance!
Convenience checks will automatically post to your credit card as a cash advance. The amount of each check will be deducted from your available credit limit.
Don’t wait to make the most of your holidays. Convenience checks expire December 31, 2009!
*Annual Percentage Rate. This APR is SPC’s balance transfer rate for the period October 1 – December 31, 2009. Qualification is based on an assessment of individual credit worthiness and our underwriting standards. Transfer rate applies to convenience check transactions only. Convenience checks cannot be used to payoff existing SPC credit card or loan balances. **Checks treated as cash advances according to the terms and conditions of your credit card agreement. All Visa Credit Card terms apply.

FREE Shred Days
Every 79 seconds a person falls victim to identity theft. This year alone, it is estimated that over 400,000 Americans will be robbed of their identities. With a minimal amount of personal information, criminals ruin credit, steal social security checks, and charge countless dollars in cash advances and merchandise credit card purchases. Where would a thief get such information? Your garbage!

4th Quarter ‘09 Hometown Hero
“If I can help just one person, I’ve accomplished something” - poignant words from Jane Snipes, the SPC 4th Quarter Hometown Hero. Jane, a nationally ranked, award-winning employment recruiter, has dedicated her life to helping others be successful in life both professionally and practically. She devotes her time to teaching interview skills, money management techniques, and even table manners for youth and adults in our community. She has organized, planned and held career development and life skill classes at places like the Billie Hardee Home for Boys, Poyner Adult and Community Education Center, as well as at a local homeless shelter while living in North Carolina. From a warm coat on a cold winter’s day to a birth certificate needed for a potential job, Jane is committed to meeting the needs of other people.
Jane celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary to husband Steve Snipes in September. The two own Northstar Recruiting, Incorporated and have two sons, 18-year-old FMU student Christopher, and nine year old, David, who attends Florence Christian School. Jane’s husband says, “She is on a mission to leave her thumbprint on this world. “ We believe that she is doing a great job so far! Thank you for all you do, Jane.
Hometown Heroes are people who serve others, their community, and take pride in honoring, restoring, preserving, or celebrating an aspect of American life, be it their work, passion, or pastime. If you would like to nominate a “Hometown Hero”, email Linda Weatherford at LHWeatherford@spccu.org.
