Credit unions offer the same services -- checking and savings accounts, CDs, credit cards, mortgages and auto loans -- that banks provide. But they tend to charge lower loan rates, pay higher savings yields and "treat borrowers who are struggling more sympathetically," says Stephen Brobeck, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America.

Credit unions are nonprofit organizations where the members are eligible to belong because of a common bond, such as place of employment, place of worship, school, geographical location or membership in an affiliated organization. These credit unions (except the last one) are open to anyone nationwide. Or you can go to www.culookup.com and www.asmarterchoice.org to find a credit union near you.
