Would you like to show your Husky pride every time you make a purchase? You now can! In conjunction with the UW and the UW Alumni Association, BECU is proud to offer the new UW Gold Debit MasterCard.
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, BECU's fundamental responsibility is to serve its members and communities around the Puget Sound region. One way we do that is by offering free checking with a UW Gold Debit card. With BECU you can rest assured that you will get a truly free checking account with no minimum balance requirement and no monthly fees, combined with a free gold debit card with gold benefits and fraud monitoring protection. You will be joining a local, not-for-profit credit union based in the Puget Sound where the members are the owners, not Wall Street.
Since 2008, BECU and UW have teamed up to raise awareness about financial responsibility with students and alumni in the Puget Sound area. BECU and UWAA are member-based organizations that share a focus on serving members while contributing positively to the broader community. Both organizations recognize that investing in education and youth excellence strengthens our economy and cultivates strong community leaders for the future.
At UW, BECU sponsors Husky athletics, maintains 2 branches in the U District, and has two ATMs on campus. Throughout the year, BECU teams up with student groups to bring financial education to the students with BECU staff and educators teaching the students the importance of managing their finances.
