Member referrals for Child Benefit borrowers

Members that refer a new member to Hertsavers for a Child Benefit Loan can now claim a £50 referral bonus for themselves and the new member will also receive a £50 bonus as well.

Our Child Benefit Loan service is the most popular loan that we have and last year we loaned out almost £500,000 to our members. This year we are already on target intended to significantly beat that.

You can help by referring your friends that are in receipt of Child Benefit who need a loan. All that they need to do is put your name on their application form in the box labelled “Promo Code”.

As soon as we pay their loan, £50 will be added to both of your accounts with the credit union. Neither payment can be withdrawn for six months by which time they will be ready for their next loan.

Child Benefit Forms are available from the website.

Terms and Conditions apply.

Build your community

The strength of the communities that we live in relies heavily on the members’ ability that live there to access finances when unexpected disasters arise.

This is sometimes referred to as resilience or the ability to recover quickly.

Members of Hertsavers, when faced with a financial challenge, are more likely to be able to access money from their savings or by taking a credit union loan than those people who are living in an area with no access to affordable credit.

The more people that join the credit union, the bigger we get and the better the service that we can provide for our members. So, don’t be shy, tell your friends about Hertsavers and let’s make it grow as our community does.

Just Borrow – a quick loan service

Just Borrow is our unique loan app which provides a much better member experience than any other loan app. Furthermore the interest rates are much less and the speed of processing is way quicker.

Only credit union members are able to use Just Borrow and our interest rates are much better than those from the competition because we are a not-for-profit community finance lender.

If you want to borrow up to £750 and would like to repay it over up to 9 months, this is the loan for you. It’s quick and the least expensive loan app, which is what you want.

Happy International Credit Union Day!

It’s International Credit Union Day! Today’s the day we celebrate the spirit of the global credit union movement. We also had another reason to celebrate; it was the 70th Anniversary of International Credit Union Day! This year, we thought of a great way to celebrate the good that credit unions around the world are doing; by hearing what our members have to say (yes, you). We asked you to send in some stories of how the credit union has helped you. From the responses, we’ve picked a few of our favourites:

“I tend to borrow the CHB loan around Christmas time, as it allows me to be able to buy the things my son and I need to have a sort of normal Christmas feeling you can say it’s easy to apply not a great deal of hassle and the staff I have been in contact with throughout the years have always displayed excellent customer service. Not to mention often very reassuring. Christmas has never been a happy time for me and my son as I lost my mum around that time of the year to an illness only to be diagnosed with the same. But being able to access a credit union loan whilst also saving just takes one less stress away. So thank you x”

“I’m so immensely blessed and grateful to have discovered the credit union. They have helped myself and 2 young kids I have so much. Whenever I needed help I got help from the credit union. My heart is so thankful to them. The team are always so nice kind and helpful. I’m glad to be a part of the credit union. Thank you so much.”

“The Credit Union has helped me get back on track with my finances by supplying me with a platform to save and borrow. Accessing money was a much more relaxing experience than visiting the banks.”

“Credit union have been absolutely helpful to me and my son, especially as my son was starting college in September. Credit Union assisted us with the child benefit loan.”

“The credit union is great they were there when I needed them.”

Hearing stories like this remind us of why we do what we do. Whether you just joined or have been with us from the beginning, thank you for being a member of HertSavers Credit Union. Here’s to another 70 years!

Need a loan of up to £1,500? HertSavers will now accept loan applications from new members who have committed to saving with us. You can now borrow up to £1,500 as soon as your membership application has been accepted and the usual credit checks have been applied.

Also, homeowner members can now take out loans of up to £15,000 for cars/extensions to your home etc. We will offer an interest rate that will be cheaper than you can get anywhere else! This could be as low as 0.25% per month (2.8%APR*) subject to credit checks.

Applying for a loan

Want to apply for a credit union loan? Then we recommend visiting the members’ area on our website. We’ve made a few revisions to the loan application form so that the questions more or less match those on the printed form and will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. If you make a mistake whilst filling in the form, there’s no need to re-enter all the information. The form will remember what you entered the first time after an initial prompt. You can also type your name in the signature box now – no need for an actual written one. Have a copy of the printed form handy so you can see what information you have to provide.

If you need cash for a holiday, a new washing machine or even a car, don’t get tempted by those TV ads that promise easy money. You’ll always get a much lower interest rate from your credit union.
