Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Promotion
Delta Community Refer A Friend
Members looking for a new home this spring or summer can save money with our special rates on Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARM) now through July 31, 2017. An Adjustable-Rate Mortgage may be right for you if you don’t plan to stay in a property for a long time and you want a home loan with lower initial monthly payments. With rates as low as 2.75% (2.99% APR)1 on Adjustable-Rate Mortgages, it’s easy and affordable to lock in a low rate and purchase the home of your dreams, even if you need a Jumbo Loan. And, when you use an ARM to purchase your home from Delta Community, you’ll receive $500 off closing costs2

30 New ATMs Installed in 2017
To better serve our members, we are currently replacing many of the older ATMs in our metro Atlanta locations with brand new machines. We believe our members will enjoy the increased reliability of these new ATMs. We will continue replacing the equipment at our out-of-state locations through the summer. 
 
As you may have noticed, our new ATMs have been equipped with contactless readers, which are not currently active. We are preparing for contactless technology by equipping our ATMs with the appropriate hardware and hope to announce the activation of this new technology soon.
 
As a reminder to all members, in addition to the 50 ATMs owned by Delta Community, you also have access to thousands of surcharge-free ATMs. Visit our website to find a convenient ATM location near you.
Member Nominates Wife for Mother's Day Giveaway
In celebration of Mother’s Day, we recently conducted a special "Mother's Day Giveaway" promotion on our Delta Community Facebook page. Members could post comments on our page about the impact their moms, grandmothers, wives or other mother figures have had on their lives, along with the hashtag #DCCUMoms, for a chance to win two tickets to Mamma Mia! at the Fox Theatre and a gift card to The Melting Pot. 

Our winner, Triston, nominated his wife Amanda with the following entry: 
 
"Just this month, this lady became not just my wife, but the mother of our children. We are a blended family and she is not only a mother to her sons, but to mine as well. We are now one big happy family. My sons and I love this woman every day for all she has done and for the sacrifices she makes for us." 
 
Congrats again to Triston and his wife, Amanda! Be sure to follow us on Facebook for future giveaways.
