Right now we’re celebrating the 1-year anniversary of our first ever Benefits offer: a deal with the Credit Unions of BC. That’s the one where you can get up to $200 just for joining a local B.C. credit union! Get hooked up here: https://getyourshare.ca/gensqueeze
We know B.C.’s economy isn’t performing well for young adults, and we’re working hard on that. But in the meantime, our benefits program is about getting you a better deal in the marketplace to help make those daily ends meet. In just the first year, our Credit Unions of BC deal has already paid out $4,500 to Gen Squeeze and its supporters (mostly to you!), with another $5,500 in the queue -- that’s amazing!
We have more exciting benefits coming up in 2017 that we can hardly wait to tell you about. But what are we missing? We want to know what other deals you think we should have on offer.
Erin Robinson is our Benefits program master negotiator. Write us back with your ideas for deals and she’ll see what we can do to further ease your squeeze in 2017!
So what's the difference between credit unions and regular banks? Credit unions are values-based co-operatives, they’re owned by their members and they’re democratically controlled. The profits are shared. They support local communities and the environment better than regular banks. Check out these videos to learn more: http://www.gensqueeze.ca/cu_videos
Did we mention that if you sign up for the credit union Benefit, Gen Squeeze will also be given $50, which we'll use to lobby for affordability on behalf of young Canadians? Oh yeah. Everybody wins!
Happy Anniversary ❤️
