Hungry for a Tasty New Ride?  by Jan


Boat and SUV on a forkA boat and an SUV on a fork? What’s THAT all about?!?

Well, it’s March, and we know that you’re starting to think about all the fun stuff you want to do… if only you had the right tools and/or toys! (We know you’re thinking about it, because WE’RE thinking about it, too!)

So…? Now is a great time to satisfy your craving for a tasty new ride! Go ahead and get that loan you’ve been thinkin’ about, and we’ll EAT a half percent of your rate! (You knew we would work in that fork somehow.)

I ask you: What are you hungry for? Maybe an RV? An SUV? ATV? Motorcycle? Boat? Car? Truck? We’re happy to serve up any and all of these goodies for you!

Here’s what comes with the main dish:

  • All loans subject to approval.
  • Existing Linn Area loans do not qualify.
  • Loan must be for $5,000 or more.
  • May not be combined with other offers.
  • Minimum of 2.0% APR.
  • Other restrictions may apply.

This blue-plate special is good through March 31, 2016. If you have questions about the menu, ask to speak to a loan chef at (319) 378-0101 or email us at

If you’re ready to stick a fork in it (there’s that fork again!), you can come on in and see us or apply online right now! Bon appetit!

A Boatload of possibilities!  by Tara


The best thing about winter is that spring and summer are right on its heels. If you are anything like me, what gets you through the slush and the teeth chattering is the promise of flip flops and sunshine. So I’m looking at you guys, right now. The ones who are dreaming about warmer weather and making BIG plans. If your plans include buying a boat (or a bigger boat!) or perhaps getting yourself a RV, this blog is for you. 

Linn Area Credit Union partners with several boat and RV dealers in the area (see list below). What does that mean for you? You can get low rate Linn Area Credit Union financing right at the dealer! The dealer will take care of all the paperwork and your loan will be with us right here at the credit union. Just make sure the dealer knows you are part of the Linn Area Credit Union family and tell them to set you up with Linn Area Credit Union financing for your new toy!  Well, you can still get that great Linn Area customer service in addition to our fabulous financing! You still take care of all the paperwork at the dealer, but we take it from there! So make sure to let the dealer know that you are part of the Linn Area Credit Union family and they’ll get you the hook up. 

Don’t forget that dealers often offer steep discounts at Boat and RV shows, like the one on March 9th at the UNI Dome. Look for the dealers listed below to get the BEST deals! Be sure to tell them you’re a member here – or, even better, that Lowell wants them to give you the best deal. ;o)
