Use online banking to save time and money.

Between mobile deposit, scheduling payments, and sending money to a friend, it’s hard to remember daily life before credit union online banking. By reducing the amount of time spent either at the branch or ATM and having all my financial information at my fingertips, managing my accounts has never been easier or more convenient. If you’re interested in saving time and money, let me tell you all the ways online banking at Dane County Credit Union can help you do just that.

Perhaps you’re still checking your balances at the ATM but why wait when you can check instantly with online banking called eBanking? While you’re at it, take a few seconds to review this week’s transactions. Maybe schedule the monthly transfers for the year into your holiday savings account. If using your mobile phone, this is all done while waiting in line for coffee. It’s that quick.


Online bill pay with eBills is my favorite way to pay bills and save money by avoiding late fees, which can add up quickly when you’re not looking. Whether it’s your recurring monthly gym membership or bi-annual car insurance payment, schedule it now and it’s one more item you can take off your to-do list. And forget about buying stamps!

Account Alerts

Email and text alerts are the smart way to manage your account while you’re going on about your day at work or school. Receive updates on your account activity, which could include deposits, if your account drops below a certain balance (this could save you from an overdraft fee), and even important date reminders. You decide which accounts and which updates, then let DCCU do the work!


My new favorite way to send and receive money with friends and family, Popmoney is available to anyone with an email address or mobile number. Funds are retrieved at their financial institution’s website or at Popmoney.com, but financial account information need never be exchanged. No more checks or stopping at ATM for cash, not with Popmoney!


By selecting online bank statements, or eStatements, as part of your credit union online banking suite, you automatically have access to the last 18 months of your account activity. Archive statements and keep your personal financial details safe from identify theft or fraud. By not receiving paper statements, you have the added bonus of saving trees and reducing resources used in producing statements. In fact, if a Madison household switches from paper to electronic statements and payments, it would save 6.6 pounds of paper per year and eliminate 171 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions!
