SESLOC President & CEO Announces Retirement

From Your CEO — Fall 2021

October 1, 2021
by Geri LaChance, President/CEO

I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most technically-savvy credit union employee. I am a frequent visitor to our IT Help Desk. And while I knew SESLOC had launched Pay with Points as part of the SESLOC Rewards program in August, it was a few weeks before I signed up to see what it was all about.

Enrolling in Pay with Points through Online Banking was easy — I did it all by myself without help! This is the coolest “cash back” program I’ve had on any of my rewards credit cards. Even I get surprised by  our credit union on occasion. (And I guess I just aged myself again by using coolest as a descriptor!)

I’ve previously used SESLOC Reward points to redeem merchandise, gift cards, and more. But this new option is just fun! Pay with Points sends a text message or email to see if you want to use your points to cover your recent qualifying purchase. (See how it works in the section below). I used this real-time rewards option everywhere last weekend: from the local hardware store, to the gas station, to dinner out on the Central Coast. Plus, SESLOC Rewards combines points earned from my debit card purchases with those earned on my Visa Signature® Rewards credit card. So points add up quickly. I really hope you’ll try this new everyday member benefit and enjoy being reimbursed for purchases in real time—especially as we enter the holiday gift-giving season. A gift for them, and money back for you!

SESLOC is also pleased to introduce Level Up Member Benefits. While we stand proud of our overall product offerings for all members, including free checking, we have added new benefits, including loan discounts, fee waivers and more. The more you participate in eligible credit union services, the more benefits1 you get. It also recognizes and rewards longevity of membership. Learn more about the program here.

We appreciate your unwavering support of our credit union and wishing you a healthy, safe and happy holiday season.
