Investor Spotlight: Michigan First Credit Union Puts “Michigan First”

Michigan First Credit Union’s Experience Michigan First Rewards Visa® is rewarding members for purchasing from Michigan businesses. Members get to choose their credit card design with a photo from twelve different iconic Michigan sites around the state, from the Mackinac Bridge to downtown Detroit. They earn extra reward points for making purchases in Michigan or online at a Michigan-based merchant. In awarding extra points for Michigan purchases, the card encourages members to shop Michigan.

From there, Michigan First continues to support Michigan businesses by offering Michigan-based sites and stores as redemption choices for the accumulated reward points. Members can also use their points to donate to Michigan charities.

Founded in 1926 by a small group of Detroit teachers, Michigan First Credit Union, headquartered in Lathrup Village, serves the entire state. With more than 95,000 members and nearly $700 million in assets, Michigan First is a financial institution leader in consumer-focused technology and dedicated customer service.
