Branches opening late for fall quarterly

American 1 branches will open later on Wednesday, Oct. 13 for our quarterly staff meeting.

Jackson-area branches will open at 10 a.m., while those branches outside of Jackson will open at 11 a.m.

We do these quarterly meetings for staff training, education, and team-building once a quarter, usually in October, January, April, and July – and usually in the middle of the month.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Pres. Buchanan $1 coin released this Thursday

This Thursday, the U.S. Mint is releasing the newest Presidential $1 coin, featuring our 15th president James Buchanan. Buchanan is the third coin released in 2010, with the fourth being Abraham Lincoln in November.

You can view the $1 coin release schedule over at the U.S. Mint.

We’ll probably have the newest Presidential $1 coin at our branches starting Thursday, but ask to see if we have any of the previous presidents on hand, too.

Closing early for Annual Meeting

American 1’s Home Office will close early on Thursday, June 17 to prepare for our annual meeting.

Our lobby will close at 6:30 p.m., a half-hour early. The Drive Thru on Perrine St., however, will stay open until 7 p.m.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Branches opening late for quarterly meeting

All branches will be opening late on Wednesday, Jan. 13 for our quarterly meeting.

Jackson branches will open at 10 a.m., while branches outside of Jackson will open at 11 a.m.

American 1 has quarterly staff meetings every January, April, July, and October for training, information updates, and product launches.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Felpausch Branch closing Thursday

American 1 Federal Credit Union will be closing our Felpausch Branch doors forever on Thursday, Nov. 19 at the end of business hours.

Over the years, the Felpausch location has served us well, and we hate to see it go.

Our new North St. Branch, however, is on schedule to open its doors in December 2009, and will replace both the Felpausch Branch and the Argyle Branch. This new branch will provide more lobby space, more parking, and more drive thru lanes.

In the meantime, please use our Home Office at 718 E. Michigan Ave in downtown Jackson – a short 2 mile drive East from Felpausch. The Home Office is also open until 7 p.m. Monday-Friday and until 3 p.m. on Saturdays. There are several nearby ATMs, including Super Liquor at 1200 West Michigan Ave. and Kelly’s Quick Stop at 3797 West Michigan Ave.

Look for more details on our North St. Branch grand opening in the weeks to come.

Introducing: Receipts on demand

Receipts On Demand

Like many other businesses, American 1 is always looking to cut costs for our members, reduce waste, and leave less of an impact on the environment.

That’s why we’re excited to announce Receipts On Demand, a program that introduces both a new receipt and a new way of doing things.

For one, we’re no longer automatically printing receipts for our members for each transaction. If you come into a branch to manage your account, and you want a paper receipt, you will ask for one. Otherwise, we won’t print a receipt. Ask yourself: do you really need a printed receipt for your transaction? Sometimes you will, sometimes you won’t. We’ll assume, in most cases, that you won’t need a receipt.

Second, we’re launching new thermal receipts and printers at three of our branches – Home Office, Argyle, and Parnall – starting Monday. Those receipts you get when you pay for gas at the pump? They’re kind of like those. They’re smaller, lighter, and only one sheet – instead of the yellow-and-white sheets we used to have.

This new on-demand receipt system does many things, all of them good, including:

  • Save money on paper costs and waste
  • Reduce our environmental impact with smaller receipts AND less of them
  • Make most transactions faster, saving time
  • Reducing identity theft, since there’s less of a paper trail

While this on-demand receipt system is kicking off at three of our branches, we plan to install it credit-union-wide over the next few months.

So when you make a transaction at an American 1 branch, and we ask if you want a receipt, make sure you really think about it. For some members, a printed receipt helps them manage their money better.

But if it’s just going to end up in the trash, say “no thanks.”
