February 3-6 at automentors.com
There will be over 200 new and pre-owned vehicles in various makes and models, each with a low, no-haggle price. When you see a car you like, simply contact Mark Ross, your Personal Auto Shopper at 503.351.6702. He will answer your questions, coordinate the credit union financing, and schedule delivery at a mutually convenient location.
Make no payments for 90 days
When you’re preapproved for a Trailhead auto loan and buy from Auto Mentors during February, you won’t have to make your first payment for 90 days.*
*Upon credit pre-approval. Making no payment for 90 days extends the term of the loan and interest will continue to accrue. Offer valid only vehicles purchased from Auto Mentors between 2/1/16 and 2/29/16.
Mobile Deposit Sweepstakes
You have a chance to win a $100 gift card* when you deposit checks using our Mobile Banking App and Mobile Deposit. Here’s How:
Draw a picture of a heart on the front of a check you intend to deposit.
Deposit the check via Trailhead’s Mobile Banking App and Mobile Deposit program between February 7-14.
It’s that easy.
The winner will be chosen from checks deposited via the credit union’s mobile check deposit program that clearly include a visible heart drawn on the front of the check. Mobile check deposits must be made between Feb 7-14. Winners will be announced by Feb 23. Heart design must be readable by the check capture system and should not conflict with the integrity of the information included on the front of the check itself.

Each year, we award a $1,000 scholarship to a primary member who is working toward a degree at any accredited two- or four-year college or university.

Trailhead Credit Union was named one of the best nonprofits to work for in Oregon for the second year in a row! More than 5,000 employees from over 150 organizations participated in Oregon Business’ annual poll. Trailhead was ranked #11 among all medium sized nonprofits!
We want to give a special thanks to our employees who make Trailhead a wonderful place to work and who love the work they do to help our members.
Chip credit cards are coming
Trailhead credit cards are moving to chip cards beginning with card renewals in the 1st quarter of 2016.
Chip cards, credit cards with a tiny microprocessing chip in the card, are the industry standard in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world. The chip adds an additional layer of security over the magnetic strip on the back of credit cards, creating a unique code for each transaction. The unique code means any chip card numbers stolen by a breach or a skimmer would not be able to be used fraudulently.
When using your chip card at a retailer with enabled technology, you will have to insert your card into the reader until the transaction is completed, rather than swiping the magnetic strip. The cards will also have magnetic strips, so if a retailer does not have the technology, the card can still be used in the traditional way. Online transactions are conducted the same way with a non-chip card.
We will update the website with additional details when the cards are ready to issue.
Visa Balance Transfer Program
Balance transfer rates as low as 5.25% APR*
Paying down debt isn’t rocket science. You only need a Trailhead Platinum Rewards Visa Credit Card to transfer department store and other credit card balances to a new, lower rate with no expiration date. Plus, there’s no balance transfer fee* and no annual fee.
- To open for a new Trailhead Platinum Rewards Visa, apply online, in person, or on the phone.
- To transfer a balance to your existing Trailhead credit card, get started here or give us call.
*Interest begins to accrue the day you make a balance transfer. See complete disclosures.
