I don’t have to worry about Christmas spending with my Christmas Club Account. I never notice the deduction. The best feature is getting that big check that I have saved for all year with the Santa stamp on it in November! It always kicks off my Christmas shopping. Love it!

I applied for my first airplane loan over 10 years ago. The process was easy and the rates are competitive. Working with Donna (AAGCU loan manager) has been a pleasure.
