The State Employees Credit Union offers the best suite of personal checking accounts in New Mexico, hands down. And I’m not just saying this because I write a blog for SECU. I’m merely stating a fact, and I am happy to back it up. Kasasa is the cream of the checking-account crop and here’s why:
They’re designed to be beneficial
First, SECU is a not-for-profit financial institution, so any excess revenue they make is reinvested into the Credit Union, in ways that benefit its membership. Benefits include low-interest loans, special financing offers, and no-nonsense checking accounts.
Kasasa checking accounts don’t require an opening deposit, don’t incur monthly maintenance charges, and ATM fees are reimbursable. “We want members to easily manage their finances, so we are not in the business of charging all sorts of fees for things that shouldn’t cost anything, like holding an account,” explains Harold Dixon, President and CEO of SECU.
They give rewards
In addition to the fair account particulars, SECU gives members who hold Kasasa accounts cash-back rewards for doing simple things like using their debit card and signing up to receive online eStatements. There is also a Kasasa account that offers a 2.05% APY.
“People often think that Kasasa is a gimmick because of the rewards, but it’s not. The rewards are one of the ways in which we show members how much we appreciate their business and it’s part of the credit union philosophy to give back to members,” says Dixon.

So, if you’re thinking of opening a Credit Union account, see the folks at the State Employees Credit Union. If you have an account at another financial institution, don’t worry; SECU has a painless and simple process for transferring funds.
