As many of the bigger banks have reacted to credit card regulation by nickel-and-diming their customers, a number of people have begun looking to not-for-profit credit unions as a lower-cost alternative. Unfortunately, since most unions don’t advertise and there often isn’t one on every corner, they can be difficult to locate. But a new search tool from the folks at Nerd Wallet can help point you in the right direction.
A couple weeks ago, the site launched its Credit Union Credit Card Search tool, which lets you find credit unions by name, location, employer, military status and FICO score.
For now, the search only has a limited number of credit unions in its database, meaning your results may be far from comprehensive. But it’s not a bad place to start if you’re thinking about switching to a credit union.
