Lockhart Chisolm Trail Roundup Parade
On Saturday, June 10th, 2023, our Lockhart branch participated in the 50th Annual Chisolm Trail Roundup Parade in Lockhart. The ATFCU team transformed a boat on a trailer into a magical and imaginative Peter Pan themed pirate ship floating in the clouds. The team and their families dressed up as Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily, Mr. Smee, Captain Hook and his pirates, Peter, Wendy, the lost boys, and there was a ticking hungry crocodile leading the way on the back of their truck. Peter, Wendy and the lost boys took over the pirate ship while the pirates, Tinkerbell & Tiger Lily followed behind handing out Telco swag to the crowds. They were awarded the Grand Prize for their float in the non-profit category! We are so proud of our Lockhart branch for their hard work in this wonderful community event!

This lively FREE event was held at the Lakeview Pavilion and festival area in Old Settlers Park. After 17 years, this is a much-anticipated annual occasion for Round Rock residents and surrounding cities. We are so proud to sponsor such community strengthening activities.
Member Merch Day at the Verde Store
Through our partnership with Austin FC, on Thursday, June 15th, 2023, we were able to put together an exclusive two-hour event for our members in honor of our 82nd birthday. ATFCU members received an exclusive 10% discount on select Austin FC merchandise purchased during the event. It was a blazing hot day, but that’s okay! We had free Kona Ice snow-cones to help all attendees keep cool. Austin FC players, Hector Jimenez (#16 Defender) and Jon Gallagher (#17 Defender), join us on this fun occasion for photo ops and to sign autographs. We also had a raffle where we chose two lucky winners of ATFCU x Austin FC merch. At the end of the day, we were surprised by one of our members who kindly played a happy birthday song for us on her electric violin.

Securing a Car Loan
Getting a used car loan can seem overwhelming, but we make the process quick and easy. Following these steps can help you navigate the process seamlessly!
Your credit report and score play a significant role in determining the interest rate you receive. If your credit score needs improvement, consider taking steps to boost it before applying for a loan. You can check your credit report for free at com.
Knowing how much you can afford to spend on a used car — including the loan repayments, insurance, maintenance, and other costs — is crucial. This will help you avoid financial strain down the line.
Different lenders offer different terms and interest rates. It's important to shop around to ensure you get the best deal. The best place to start is with a local financial institution.
Preapproval gives you an idea of what you can afford and puts you in a stronger position when negotiating a car price. After you’ve done your research, apply for a loan.
Research the car’s value to get an idea of what the vehicle is worth and use your preapproval to your advantage to help negotiate the price. Try to find comparable vehicles at different dealerships to compare prices and features. You may also contact a ATFCU loan expert to help you pull the value on a vehicle you are interested in purchasing.
Once you've settled on a price and worked up a purchase order with the dealership, you can finalize your loan. You will then work with a loan representative to iron out the details of your loan and set up your repayment schedule. Once your loan is finalized you will be hitting the road in your brand-new car!
Shopping for used car can be overwhelming, but with the right information and financial guidance, you can make it through smoothly. You don't have to go through it alone. Austin Telco FCU is here to provide you with the support you need, every step of the way.
