It’s September, schools are back in session, and Mother Nature has flipped the fall weather switch. Summer is officially over.

Earlier this month, while I was reviewing my accounts following the news of the Equifax breach (side note: please everyone, review what you should do because of this security breach), I noticed how much summer spending my family did this year! While I had been paying attention throughout the summer to the account balances, I hadn’t stopped and really added it up. We did several projects (built a shed, started a vegetable garden, and are scrambling to finish our deck before rain fully hits), took a once-in-a-lifetime family vacation to Hawaii, and had several unexpected expenses relating to pets and cars. While much of that spending had been budgeted for, some of it is currently sitting on credit cards.

But, that’s where Verity is here to help! If you too are feeling the financial strain after summer credit card spending, then Verity’s credit card balance transfer promotion is a great way to get some relief.

If you transfer your credit card balance to Verity by October 31, you are eligible to receive up to $100 plus you can choose from two low promotional rates:

  • 4.99% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for the life of the transferred balance*
  • 2.99% APR for the first 12 billing cycles*

This promotion is available to new and existing cardholders, and Verity has three credit cards to choose from. (I personally use the Journey Rewards credit card so that I can rack up those rewards points.)

So, if you’re like me and are carrying a balance on a store card or a higher-rate credit card, transfer it to a Verity credit card and enjoy some financial relief to start your fall season.

Hi, I’m Kira. I joined Verity in early 2012 after a seven-year stint as a newspaper reporter. While I never thought my career path would veer off in this direction, I am loving my time at Verity. I recently moved from being a member services representative at the Alderwood Branch to being the marketing coordinator for the credit union.

I’m originally from Texas, but I have lived all over the country and the world, including Boston, Massachusetts, Anchorage, Alaska and Sydney, Australia. But in all my travels, the Pacific Northwest is the only place that has felt like home.

When not at work, I am usually home with playing with my son, husband, dog and three cats. During the rare times I don’t have a to-do list to plow through (and it’s not raining too hard), I can be found digging in the vegetable garden, training for a half-marathon, or grilling in the backyard.
