Yep.  I suspect we will continue to see even more.  PenFed is focusing on growth.  That is the reason for the acquition of multiple credit unions and those ads.  All great news.  Glad to hear the credit union growing.

I have not seen any here in Denver. USAA on the other hand is everywhere. Like a giant middle finger at me since I can't join LOL.  I think if PenFed wants to remain the 3rd largest credit union in the country they need to continue growing. BECU is knocking at PenFed's back door in terms of members and assets. 

 

How that backward NC SECU became the second largest credit union in the country is beyond me. Its like they give everybody a social security number and a membership to NC SECU at hospital when people are born in NC.

I have 2 cards with PenFed, and wish that they had a local branch near me... BUT.. I DO have 2 NFCU branches within about 15 miles of me Smiley Happy

 

They are BOTH awesome as far as I am concerned, both with products, and also customer service (member of both, and DCU as wll)

Re: PenFed tv advertisement

PenFed has been VERY aggressive with TV advertising in the Tampa market... I can undertand that though, with the large military presence that we have in the area

I haven't seen any TV ads in the Tucson market yet, and we have a fairly large military presence with Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson & Ft. Huachuca Army base in Sierra Vista. And I noticed that the blimp that crashed & burned at the U.S. Open golf tournament in WI last week was carrying a large Penfed banner. And Penfed ads follow me just about everywhere I go on the interwebs, but I bank with Penfed and Have the Powercash Rewards Visa, so it must be the cookies.

 

Good to see Penfed making a big marketing push, can't let Navy Fed have all the fun. Smiley Wink
