Digital Happenings Q4 2019

Finish the Year Off Right

It’s important to keep your contact information up-to-date, so we made it easier for you through Online Banking.  If you’ve signed into Online Banking through a desktop computer recently, you might have noticed a page displaying the current contact information we have on file for you.  You can either update your contact information or confirm that everything looks correct.  Once you do so, you will be navigated to your Account Summary.  We will ask you to confirm or update your contact information once a year.  It’s our way to make sure we stay connected!

If you haven’t signed in through desktop lately, you’re missing out on a handful of features that are not available through our Mobile Banking App.  There are an array of features available for you to stay on top of your finances!  Just to name a few:

  • eAlerts - Our eAlerts feature sends alerts through email, text message, or both!  Receive loan payment reminders to never miss a payment, receive alerts if your account balance drops below a certain amount, and receive alerts of attempted sign-ins.  These are just a few examples of how you can customize your alerts to manage your money even better!
  • Budget Tools – Did you know that all of your transactions are auto-categorized into categories such as “Gas,” “Groceries,” and “Dining Out”?  Take a peek at the Budget Tools tab to see where you are spending.  If the categories don’t pertain to your spending habits, create your own custom categories to track your spending and set budget goals.  You can also view a snapshot of all your money coming in and going out under “Cash Flow.”
  • Billp@yer – If you haven’t enrolled in Billp@yer yet, or you haven’t had the chance to add your payees, take advantage of First Entertainment’s free bill pay service.  As long you have a Checking Account with us, you can use this service to pay anyone in the U.S.  With Billp@yer you can setup automatic payments and scheduled payments.  Billp@yer doesn’t only pay large institutions, but also smaller businesses, like your babysitter. 

We encourage you to explore the tools available to you at your fingertips!  If you would like to learn more about these features, or you need help setting them up, please feel free to contact us during normal business hours at 888-800-3328.  Until next quarter...
